Didn’t see that before, pretty rad. My prediction is one of Maximus’ WP themes is going to be the first to 2k on TF one of his has already hit 500+ in 4 months.

I wonder if people actually use TF as their full time job. I know I’d quit my daytime job if I was getting 10k every 4 months hah!

Well, first you might need to change your point of view on getting paid in here =)

Ok, when you start with 40%, having a $12 html theme (considering that will be the only theme you have ever), consider it was downloaded a 1000 times in 6 months, it would make $3000 for your html theme, which you probably prepared in 4-5 days.

How many of your html pieces can you sell for $3000 each?

Now; is it less, or much?=) Not even mentioning how high your commission rate will go as your files keeps getting sold.

I totally agree with you, I didn’t upload any design yet but I sense I’ll get the best money for every design I make here. Thanks man. ;)

Great question! I would say it’s all about…
  • Creating quality over quantity
  • Being original
  • Continually uploading new material
  • Diversification through multiple marketplaces
  • Realizing that stock is a long term strategy, not a short term strategy
  • Don’t think that uploading your file is the end, it’s only the start – you have to use your own creative ways to market and promote your files
  • Be patient
  • Listen to your customers
  • Be different from your competitors
  • Most of all… enjoy what you do
Hope this helps! :-)

Nice suggestion…, the most I like on the suggestions above is “be patient”

It’s ridiculous what the top-selling Wordpress themes made… some sold $10,000+ and in just a few months.

That’s far from ridiculous. Themes like that take a very long time to develop and you need to keep in mind that if you calculate the work hours an author already has spend from 2000 dollars to even 5000 dollars to create the theme in the first place.

Hehe, this thread is so old you would have to take into account inflation to make sense of these values now :)
