IMHO: calculate the amount of hours you need to finish x2 for later adjustments that client will request immediately after you launch the site. So you might estimate 5 hours to buy theme, install, add content. Add 5 more (or at least 2.5) on top of that because almost always clients would require something modified or added that might not be that big of a change to be charged separately.

And since you’re in US (atlien777) I find that kind of low. Quite….

P.S. I’ve read on the forums that some of the templates are being sold for thousands :)

@Jthemes

which isn’t THAT bad considering it’s $40/hour.

Good luck finding the right person.

I think the buyers won’t agree to pay more at this point, things got too far. Besides, don’t fix it if it ain’t broken.

I’m sure Envato will come up with something if things get worse regarding the sales but hey, top items are selling pretty well, the best theme is doing 1500+ sales per week by itself.

@aligatorstudio

I understand your concerns but buyers decide what sells and what not, unfortunately. Give people what they ask for.

Nobody forces you to built MEGA themes. There is no action Envato should take. It’s up to the author to decide what to build.

@ZoomIt because of the ergonomy. I’m not that satisfied with it. Its shape is a bit awkward for my hand.

I own one (performance mx) for more than 2 years and I can’t say I’m happy with it. I do love the scroll tho :)

I’d say go with Enfold. Maybe there are other themes as well but I personally don’t know much about them (for example X theme).

Cheers!

@Jar

Personally, I’d suggest tuts+ and codeschool. For me, treeteamhouse and lynda are a bit boring.

And beside those, stay up to date with the news from smashing mag and other websites like that.

Cheers, Ciprian
