Header + Nav + Slider + 3 Columns + Footer = More sales > Business! Period.

I noticed some great simple blog designs and they aren’t great sellers, corporate designs are the killers here. The latest theme from Simon Bouchard is remarkable and his sales aren’t that good.

The design should be high of course but there’s nothing wrong with the layout IMHO . It’s boring for you and for me but sadly that’s the business, if you don’t believe me see inFocus or Awake.

I have noticed over the time I been here on themeforest that anythign just little out of the box doesn’t sell well at all. Also many authors here on themeforest are selling with their names ;).

Since we’re already OT ;), I’m liking the update to the Live Preview and Screenshots buttons—small but effective.

@ themeblvd — You’re confusing features/options with quality.

What I see in Wordpress is 90% of authors dedicating time to custom sliders and color variations when they should be using that time to make better designs. That’s why everything is so homogenized and boring now = jQuery menus + Cu3er + three column footer. Again?

A few authors (who kill it in sales) are doing the opposite. Raise the bar with design. I welcome it. Changing colors isn’t design, leave that to executives playing designer.

Agree, it might be boring to see so many options in theme (designer perspective) but for buyer. It means convenience
