You can make a really pretty theme, like a lot of authors do, with fancy schmansy animations. But if your page speed sucks, that is not cool for your end user.

Yup. As mentioned needs a few improvements on the speed – http://gtmetrix.com/reports/www.tatwerat.com/efIprahX

I know sales and traffic vary month to month, but for a massive dive like this something most definitely isn’t right. It especially worry some since I rely on the Envato Marketplace as the majority of my income.

Anytime you want to chime in Envato?

Hi,

Yes. Sketch is Mac only. But there a few services now where you can share the files between Mac and PC users, when it comes to coding the files up.

Avocode, and Zeplin are 2 that come to mind.

Cheers

Watch out Mac users. They’re rounding you up in trucks now! ;)

but I think it’s better to dictate the market and trends

Spot on. That is our role here (with some assistance from Envato to a point). A good portion of buyers don’t know what they want until you offer, and shine a spotlight on it.

There are truckloads of Mac users who still think Photoshop is the goto tool, because that’s all they have known, and been sold.

I agree with digitalscience, where he mentions about the design being ‘well thought out ideas’. It’s a lot more than just making things look pretty. It has to engage the user, and provide a great experience, past all the fluff.

ThemeForest is rife with designs that, yes, visually, they look amazing at first glance, and scream “gotta kiss myself i’m so pretty”. But the majority are just ‘cut & paste’ jobs, with no coherence when it comes to the actual user experience.

Now I’m planning to use Sketch for my first template on Themeforest.
You’re one of the smart guys. You won’t regret it for a second.
Except when 90% of the buyers ask, “Can I get the PSD files for this?” I’ve sold a few themes on here over the years and something I’ve discovered is that a majority of buyers are on PC’s and they want the PSD included. ;)

They want the .psd files as well as the theme all for around $50.00? Doesn’t cheapen our industry much then.
