Not bad, I see good ideas in there but :

- Don’t be shy with the white space. - Work with a better accent color. This blue remind me the 90’s. - Subscribe to Adobe Typekit and use their fonts / or Google Web Fonts. - Widgets need refinements (bigger text, no arrows. tags clouds, more padding, etc…) - I see arrows everywhere, not needed. Use distinct colors only for actions. - The black man, he’s high on something ? o_O

Good luck !

Hey guys,

Maybe I’m late in the news, one of my friend told me yesterday about Project Spartan.

“Spartan” is the codename of a web browser under development by Microsoft. Officially unveiled on January 21, 2015, and first publicly released as a preview on March 30, 2015, it will replace Internet Explorer as the default browser of Windows 10 PCs, smartphones and tablets.

“[...] It is fast, compatible, and built for the modern Web [...]”

What do you think guys ? No more IE… I am dreaming !?

I will launch a virtual machine to test it out this week, anyone tried it already ?

From my experience this is just wasting money. I did some small script to track, when Customer click on button purchase is register where this customer come from, as referal, and after that just check everyminute to see if the customer purchased. If you don’t have everyminute click on the purchase button you can track easily. And after few hundreds dollars spent, 0 sales.

Hundreds…. which theme did you advertise ? Is it possible to see your ads ?

Hello, don’t know, but would like to hear your conversion ratio or if you had any success with it. Good luck Cheers

I’ve just published the ads, will let it go for a few days and post the results.

To track sales coming from Facebook, it is necessary that a tracking pixel (or whatever they use for web-sites) was put on the “Thank you for purchasing the theme!” page here on ThemeForest.

So this is not a viable solution, right ?...

Hello guys,

So I pushed an ads on Facebook for my theme, I’d like to track if sales are actually coming from this particular ads…

Also tips, suggestions about advertising are welcome.

Thanks !

Don’t upload an archive of your theme within the root of your theme folder… :evil:
