If you don’t have at least 200 000$/month for advertising the is no any way to promote your items. Adwords/social ads will work for you only with this values of money. You will never get profit from promoting HTML templates, its too cheap. Even themes ads may not get any profit because average click cost in this area 2-5$ (with theme income $40). You will lost your money if every 10 clicked user does not buy your theme, but this is not possible. Maybe one from 1000 clicked will buy 1 your item or less.
The best way to promote your items is make some of FREE templates and add it to all free design websites and in your FREE template (readme, documentation, sample content) you can add links to your website/tf page with PAID templates. This is only a way.
We provide this service and completed it around 10-15 times. In 80% of cases users have theme and WP already installed but get hosting problems (PHP errors, hosting limitations, etc). If this problems is easy we fix it and users are happy, but sometimes problems are complex and we lost some time and money in this case because this does not cost $30 that we got at the end.
I think 95% of users does not understand what this service is exactly. They even does not provide all details at the first step (FTP or CPanel for example) or does not add theme documentation (only theme zip). Service is not good described for users, they does not know what they need to provide and what they will get. And I think $50 (with 30% comission) is too less price for this service, because in 90% of cases this is not just clicking 1st button to upload and install theme and 2nd button to import dummy data. In 90% of cases this is resolving hosting problems. Yes, you can send custom proposal and sometimes we do this, but most of all users will not understand why they need to paid more for service that cost $50 and will get you negative feedback.

Remove ad campaigns as part of the Elite program, reduce the ad spend by 50% provide that as a cash bonus to Elites – they can then decide to either invest in their own campaigns / ads or pocket the money. Everyone is a winner. I’ve suggested this for about 2 yrs now as the ad campaigns do not work, it’s just a waste.
And Send us 1000$ Louis Vuitton bag instead of AD Campaign and cheap bag in 500k milestone

So, i was waiting 3 months for 3 sales) I’m not so happy)
This is good results for Google Adsense with Themeforest themes advertisement. Only few % of users who goes by link with your theme will buy YOUR theme. Most of all will go to browsing Themeforest and will purchase ANOTHER themes from ANOTHER authors (but they goes by your link first). This is how work advertisement that points not to your website where you sell only your themes, but to marketplace that your file is only 1 from millions of other items.
1000$ is very small value for Google Adsense promotions for item that cost only $40-$50 (theme). You need to spend millions of dollars to get good results (get TOP SELLER positions that will cover your Google Adsense spent money).
revaxarts saidStill a cotton side-bag. How much can it cost at most? $200?
fuelthemes saidno, it’s definitely not cheap, it’s good quality (just not a backbag)
Even though it’s better than nothing, I would like to say, looks cheap
I think less than $100. Check here: http://www.crumpler.com/au/
I just got my “Custom Envato branded ‘Crumpler’ backpack.” which wasn’t a backpack rather a sidebag.
