Hello and welcome,

is it worth to make cosmetic changes to an existing item which has low sales? By redesign we mean fixing typography, colorsets and not big changes to a template base layout (briefly – changes to frontend). Did any of you have tried something similar?

As always, we look forward for your comments and suggestions.

Have a nice day!

Why not provide a version 2 keeping the old version in the package? :)

I redesigned one of mine and the sales improved greatly. Unless your planning on completely overhauling the product, I don’t think there is a need for a version 2.

Unless the whole code is different (I mean: different structure, functions, logic, graphic) I think you should just update the item version, without creating a new one.

I made that for PrivateContent many centuries ago and everything went ok :)

Before making the changes it may be good to investigate the reason of the low sales in the first place. Otherwise it may be lost time you put into something that does not pay itself back. Just my two cents. Goodluck.

Thanks for advice, we decided to work on refreshed look while keeping old version available. We rather improve existing template than put a cross over it. Would you abandon your firstborn? :D

It’s definitely worth keeping them alive, my first theme is 4 years old at the end of the month, it’s evolved a lot since the first version ;)

All my older themes are re designed in coding, design and features as well as version 2.0

Only few of them are going well while few are not, so it depends on the item demand and design quality.

We made some minor tweaks, and we hope that we went in the right direction. Thanks for words of encouragement, every reason is good to learn something new :)

It is worth it to redesign the preview, but for redesigning the item itself it is better to create a new one.
