I make a different playlist every day. Always depends on what mood i’m in. It’s usually quite an odd mix. :) this was yesterdays one…

But at the end of the day, a big-name seller like Orman Clark, for example, is gonna sell more copies of a theme than an first-time seller will of an equally-awesome theme, due to the fact that Orman has built up a community around him, via Premium Pixels, Twitter, Dribbble, etc., and more people can find out about his themes.

actually ! He is my idol :D

If you build a quality theme, buyers will find it.

Yep and i think Orman built the easy-to-use and powerful theme option !

And combine all these things :

Quality theme + Good Marketing + Reputation = More Sales

The man defiinately has some celeb status :) He does produce some mighty fine work.

winning combination?

I guess a large part of that is marketing. This is true of any product, not just ThemeForest – If you have an amazing product but nobody can find it, it won’t sell well. Conversely, if you have a terrible product, but a history of great products, it might sell well nonetheless. The answer is simply to keep on making great products, build up your reputation, and hope for the best :)

+1

I agree with ConorDesign .

it depends on your marketing ability, the way you build up your reputation on internet, easy-to-use & customer-friendly product.

That’s what i thought :)

Completely agree with you both. Just seems very unfair and fickle of end users that if you’re new and haven’t yet built up a following, you’re brilliant designs get ignored.

Fingers crossed my themes will be good enough :)

“tl;dr A good selling template must be unique + generic. That’s the fine art of crafting a template.”

Love this CMT ! so true. :)

Thankyou :)

What i’m trying to get across… not so articulately… Is that there are a lot of very nice designs out there that just don’t seem to sell well. and I don’t understand how that works… if it is designed perfectly and works then why does it not sell on a marketplace as big as themeforest? Whereas others that are not as great, seem to take off and sell far better?
