Hi all

I have a question for developers and mainly for theme forest template buyers.

Is it possible to run a web design business/service using templates on theme forest.

What do you charge, and do you turn a decent profit.

Thanks for your feedback all

It depends on what you are running, how well it is being run, and the type of market you are in… much more than the design of a template.

To answer your question, of course you can use these templates for a business.

Considering the ample amount of opportunities, I don’t see how you expect anybody to answer to charge/profit that will help you in any way…

If the dollar is particlarly good in your area then I can see how you could easily turn over a good profit because the $5 or whatever commission is alot of money in some parts.

I’m from the UK. I have 2 big themes and 2 minor themes, they tend to sell pretty consistently and I can add up to about £200 a month doing this shizzle.

I work a full time job (not web related) so for me, it’s great that I can get paid to do what I love and I’m sure if I pushed myself harder I can get to that all important point where I’m earning enough on here to pay my bills :-)
