So I’ve just downloaded Ferado, ThemeForest’s free file of the month. I really like the free theme this month, especially for it’s a WooCommerce theme. I found the topic for free file nomination and see that many authors are willing to giveaway their items.
I think it would be awesome if everyone can vote from the list of nominated items and choose what to be free next month! It will be a win-win-win for author-buyer-Envato
However I’m still unsure about license issue of this free theme. Will people be able to use it for multiple websites, especially when 1 month period is over? What if someone creates many dummy accounts and download Ferado with free licenses, then after July, he shares them with his friends, each has a free license. Will it be eligible?
WOW. Our sales was good last week, over 13x sales but suddenly it is downing this week :(( :((,
yes, it is downing 40-50% :(( dont know why???
Hi there, Cool, but I have another question.
If we apply these types of tactics to our item sales page for better rankings in Google.
How does this affect your ranking in the Themeforest Search Results. What I mean is, if you type ‘Restaurant’ in the Themeforest Search box, the themes in the results page do not even come close to the same rankings as on google.
So how do you try and optimise for both searches?
Hi there, I have a question when it comes to getting your item sales page ranking higher on google.
If you see the examples below, I am curious as to how this works and how can we optimise our item sales pages to get better rankings:Example 1: If you go to google.co.uk and type the search term ‘construction wordpress themes’ You will see the following two themeforest themes appear: http://themeforest.net/item/buildpress-construction-business-wp-theme/9323981 http://themeforest.net/item/construction-wp-construction-building-business/10439297 Example 2: If you go to google.co.uk and type the search term ‘wordpress restaurant theme’ You will see the following two themeforest themes appear: http://themeforest.net/item/vienna-responsive-wordpress-restaurant-theme/9036681 http://themeforest.net/item/hg-restaurant-responsive-wordpress-theme/9910041
Why is this? How do we optimise our own pages to get these type of rankings?
Your thoughts and advice is much appreciated.
Even through all these discussions, could somebody explain how an author, agrees a bulk sale with envato.
Plus if I want to create a marketing plan to try and get a bulk sale of one of our themes, is this possible:-We have 2 businesses in the UK.
One of our businesses is a ThemeDevelopment Company. The other of our businesses is a Commercial Web Design Company.
If I want to use my Commercial Web Design Company, and come up with ‘A Deal’ where we are offering ‘FREE’ websites for a certain industry/sector, to local businesses near our offices.
And then want to BULK buy a theme from our other business the ‘Theme Development Company’ is this allowed?
Because this is how I understand Xtheme and uGurus have done the bulk sales.
In my eyes this would be a legitimate use of the ‘Bulk Sales’ option, because I am using my commercial web design company to create an interesting offer and revenue stream. Whilst at the same time, increasing the sales of my ThemeDevelopment Company.
Any thoughts on this would be well received. And if Collis could confirm what is allowed and not allowed before we spend time and money on the same marketing tactic as XTheme.
I agree it motivates all authors, I only ask the question about marketing rules. Because if this type of marketing is within the rules. I have some great ideas
Mmmm, I’ve just been thinking about this type of marketing.
Does it go against envato’s rules of an exclusive account and the 70% payment?
Reason I ask is, if you already have a theme on Themeforest and you are telling customers they can have the next major release for free, if they buy the current version now. Is that not the same as offering one or more of your themes for free if customers purchase your best selling theme NOW, which will inflate sales?
Surely this goes against an exclusive account rules?
Or, if this is allowed, does that mean we can create a new theme, not publish it on TF only on our main website and then tell customers if they buy our best selling theme we will give them the themes not published on themeforest for free?
So that you inflate sales on TF?
Just a question to put out there. I love clever marketing so would like to know what envato’s think.
Ha ha, like I said clever marketing, if you’ve already purchased the ‘X’ theme a ad are already a customer, why buy again to get version 4 free. You may as well wait until version is released and stable.
