You can learn design in time, but the best way to start is to partner with a designer and split income with him.

Or can try your luck on CodeCanyon. Think on the idea and write a plugin (jQuery or WP), and if its become popular then you can make nice money for a long time. Of course, a lot of items on CC are not profitable (or low), but if you really come with great idea and item that make life easier for many people then you will succeed.

I have gone back and forth about going this route. I had a few ideas I wanted to build into a WordPress theme, but I wasn’t ready to build a whole theme. I considered making some of the most prominent features into plugins for sale on CodeCanyon, but the math just doesn’t add up. Most plugins on CC are $10-15, and the extended license is only 5x. So for $50-75, someone can buy an extended license for your plugin and include it in a theme that sells for $40-$55. It makes more sense to go the theme route, even if you have to learn design, or better, find a designer to make PSDs for you. It would be better to give the designer a flat rate if you can afford it, rather than a percentage of the sales. I thought about goin

I think I heard this will change soon and extended license will cost more, or there will be more license options. But anyway to include in theme you going to pay more. Not sure when it will happen.
