My new theme had 1500+ unique views but 1 sale. pretty bad ha

How many of those views were from TF and how many were from “other” sites? (you know what I mean)

Did you check that?
1,623 from themeforest and 1 from codecanyon and 28 direct views from the demo url

Hey guys, I was just looking over some reports, and can confirm that overall sales had a very VERY marginal slow down period. But things seem to be back on track this week with what looks to be normal sales so far. Although I think the overall traffic the bundle brought will end up benefiting the site more in the long run, I agree with something Collis mentioned the other day about re-thinking the length that we keep the bar on the top of the page. Maybe keeping it up there was too distracting?

Lol I feel that ThemeForest is quite empty now without the blue bar on the top, my eyes got used to it :D

hey wizzy,

I took a look at your theme out of curiosity and I’ll try to give you an honest critique. It’s not what you were asking for but it might help explain why your theme is lagging behind some others in sales.

Your big bold buttons. There is nothing wrong with them. I think they look good but it’s a stylistic choice that might not be to everyones taste.

You’ll notice all of the best selling themes have very dull menus… they aren’t exciting but they also aren’t turn-offs. Playing it safe caters to a wider audience.

This is why minimalistic themes are more successful, they work in any niche. Give the theme enough flair to make it look good and stand out from the crowd but don’t over-do it.

I’ll bet ya a fiverr if you take your xero theme, replace the big bold buttons in the menu, add in some shortcodes and other extras and make the footer a little more exciting you’ll see a huge improvement in sales.
