Depends where you want to market it and how much you want to spend? You could use anything from Facebook ads or twitter promotion to Google Adwords or even some kind of YouTube Seeding and more.

Again it depends on the theme and who you are targeting, budgets, time frames and so on. Any SEO is going to help but in terms of “selling” promotion targeted advertising would I imagine be more beneficial and a faster turn around

Don’t worry about SEO yet, just get the theme known and market it in it’s first few weeks on sale e.g.

- get reviews from influential blogs - submit to places where designers will look (css galleries, dribble, pinterest, deviantart, behance - offer a version to a website to use in a competition (give them a psd version etc)

Once you have marketed the theme, then look at the SEO, set up a small landing site to promote it and target it at your preferred market e.g. real estate agents

Are you allowed to give away an item as a contest if your selling it on here?

Depends on your author status, if you’re a ‘exclusive’ author then no you can’t as you agree for Envato to have full rights to the item.

Lets say you sell the html and WP versions here but didn’t submit the pSD, you can give away the PSD (a few authors I know of do this, give away parts of themes to build interest in their theme / brand)
