Hi guys,

Does anyone experience very low sale rate for this month (Aug) ?

Actually, I’ve been an author here just half a year. However, the sale rate for this month is really really low and obviously noticeable. ;(

Does anyone have statistical data about which months have nice sale rate and which months are bad?

I’m feeling like I released a theme in an improper time ;( OR My theme may be soooo bad. lol

Hi,

Man, your new item is awesome! I mean it. But who knows which item and design will sell fine in the market? Someday you’ll submit an item with the hope to see it in the top row of popular items, but it will no way sell good enough and someday you’ll release a new item that you don’t have so much hope on it but it will sell great!

We all will experience such up and downs here. Just keep up with the good work and one of your next items will be a top seller for sure :)

Cheers,
Iman

Hi Iman,

Thanks for nice encouragement and suggestion!

I agree with you that we always face uncertainty. ;)

I hope one day I could have an Elite author badge like you, Iman ;)

Hi readactor,

May be I’m too pessimistic… ;(

I may have too high expectation on the second item since I put a lot of effort on it ;). Actually, my first item makes 30+ in the first 5 days and that’s why I expect more from the second one. lol ;)

Anyways, let’s sit, sip some coffee and wait a bit lol.

Wow, your latest theme is amazing. Really, really amazing.

Wanted to share my view from CodeCanyon – This month has been weird. I’ve had a week where there’s no sales, and then towards the end of the week there’s a massive jump in sales and I make my average week’s worth in those 1 or 2 days.

I also saw that my most popular item (although it isn’t a themeforest item) has not been selling hardly at all this last week, super odd.

Back here on Themeforest, I pay close attention to WordPress and HTML templates. I’m a regular buyer. Right now it doesn’t look like new items are selling as well as they were a few months ago.

Don’t worry people – for some August is great, for some August is bad. Every month someone is posting in the forum that sales are low ;) Here are my unofficial rules for sales:

-There are in general fewer sales during summer -sales are way down during christmas holidays -there is no more rule

@timberry: your theme looks amazing and the sales are quiet good for a theme released just two weeks ago! My personal opinion on why it might not does as good as you want it: it’s too expensive. Sounds strange but there are many other themes in the portfolio space that are cheaper. Maybe next time try to not include woocommerce etc options and only make it “ready” for those plugins. That will bring your theme down to 4x Dollars and make it more attractive :)

besides that: I really love it – great theme!
