This may be a little out there, but I have always been curious as to how many authors actually get templates approved and are selling daily.

I see there are over 1.4 million marketplace members, but that doesn’t reflect how many authors are actually selling items (having the skill to get something approved).

I have now sold over $197 and I’m ranked just over 1,047th for ThemeForest. That’s a big difference from 1.4 million…

What do you guy’s think? Any insight?

Thanks!

Thomas

From the 1.4 million users, obviously there are more buyers than authors :)

Well, technically ThemeForest only. I have noticed some authors have difficulties getting their GraphicRiver projects approved as templates on TF ;)

You have to admit though… 1,403 authors out of the entire world is quite impressive for those very few – to say the least.
