Hello,

Does anyone have metrics or maybe an overview analysis of what types of themes are selling on Themeforest?

And can you judge by that what kind of design styles do the buyers want?

Yes, of course. Buyer don’t really wants a design. He want monster with tones of options and no matter how it looks.

But don’t do about making a mess. Focus on one thing and just add loads of functionality to it

I hugely disagree with that statement. Make a kickass design that really stands out, and add tons of functionality as you go. User driven development really is the key to succes for us. Each new theme builds on the feedback of the previous ones. Don’t waste time on features of which you don’t know if they’ll sell your theme. The design should always be your number one priority. But that’s just my opinion ;)

Design is important, but the buyer will always choose one which has loads of functionality! Unless you can make a REALLY kickass design

Ok and what kind of functionalities are we talking about?

I’m referring to site templates as well as Wordpress too. For ex. I don’t know if I should start with a template then Wordpress it or vice versa.
