Hi Envato Authors!

I’m Oli Gardner, Creative Director and Co-Founder of Unbounce. I just wanted to say how insanely excited we are to be a part of ThemeForest. It’s been on our digital bucket list for a long time and I’m honoured that you’ll be helping us design beautiful templates for our customers.

If you’d like to discuss landing page design, I’d love to talk with you. Shoot me an email at oli@unbounce.com. If you’re having any trouble building your page, our Customer Success team is ready to help (success@unbounce.com). Or, if you have any feedback on product improvements, we’d really appreciate your feedback. Almost all the new features we build are from user feedback in our forums (https://getsatisfaction.com/unbounce).

I hope you enjoy using Unbounce as much as I do.

Cheers, Oli

Count me in! I have used Unbounce in the past and the interface is really nice. Easy to use and support is top notch. I usually build Muse Templates since I don’t code so this is right up my alley.

This how-to guide will help :) http://webdesign.tutsplus.com/tutorials/the-themeforest-authors-guide-to-unbounce-templates--webdesign-18426

Thanks for bringing Unbounce to ThemeForest!

I’m in too :-) ! But since this is my first theme here… For a Wordpress or an HTML template, I can understand what to put in the help file. But in the case of Unbounce, in your opinion, what kind of informations can we put in the help file for the buyer ? Is it something mandatory to add a documenation whereas it’s a drag & drop based template ?

Hi Axool,

We’ll be putting some instructions in the Tuts+ post regarding this. Essentially, the help file would include a link to our standard instructions (will include this on the Tuts+ page – essential checklist section) plus include detailed instructions for how any added functionality in your template works (if you added custom Javascript and CSS – which is optional).

Hi axool! We have an answer for this coming real soon in the official kb article for Unbounce but there is a slight delay. When this is ready we’ll update the announcement and shoot you a link as well.
