Hey guys!

I’m going to be speaking at WordCamp Kansas City this weekend on the business of WordPress themes, and I was thinking that it might be nice to, at the end of my presentation, list a handful of the best tips from our little community here.

If you could only provide a one sentence piece of advice to an up and coming theme developer, what would it be?

I’ll then choose a handful of the best quotes, and add them to my slides, and, of course, give credit + linkage to you.

Hopefully, you can help me out! Hope you’re all doing well. :D

Don’t get intimidated by the amount of customization options other themes offer, focus on uniqueness and originality.

A well-designed theme won’t need a lot of options.

Quality over quantity. One unique best-seller will accumulate significantly more sales than a couple of cheap remakes.
