In God We Trust, Everybody Else Shall Bring Data
Data has amazing qualities. Data was what made the Ford Motor Company turn around and become one of the raging profit-makers before others were taking notice. Today, it has become an integral part to make your data talk so that you can take those decisions which put you ahead of the competition.
I have studied the data of all the author submissions and the sales made by the successful ones. Therefore, I can say with confidence that the more successful authors are those who maintain less items and update them regularly to keep them on the bleeding edge.
Added to this, every Elite Author swears that better support equals better sales. SO that is the USP of my work. Be Assured, you will be always provided support as long as I am an active author on ThemeForest, and that whatever few themes I will put up eventually will always be up-to-date. One is definitely getting approved in few weeks time!

1. Simple Themes and simple features sell more. It pays to remember that most buyers are not your average developer, so they need to learn things easily.
2. Amazing support and customization offer. Most customer like their theme a little tweaked and if the author does this themselves, the better it is!
3. Create a form of dialogue with your customers – they will give more business to an author they know beforehand and can trust with their money.
12 Aug 2013 I am going to make myself busy with making some quality Symphony themes over the next month. If you believe the guys on Symphony, they tell that it’s easy for the users “as well as the developers” to maintain. No mess like WordPress becomes in due course. There’s need for less code for developing and jQuery is also used in the backend, therefore no need to learn new stuff!
That being said, Symphony has existed since 2008 and I don’t see it overcoming WordPress’ 50% market share in the near future. Customers seem to love WordPress so much, they will not buy into Symphony very soon.
