Free eBook: Successful Theme Selling

Freebies, Resources, WordPress | Sep 16, 2011

Pretty much no matter where you live, the economy sucks right now, and many designers are finding it hard to get new clients.

People just don’t want to spend money on a website, or a redesign of their current site, if they don’t have to. And even if they do decide to tackle a new web design project, they’re looking for the least expensive way to do so.

What does that mean? It means that a lot of people are turning to themes for their new or redesigned site, rather than completely custom designs. And considering the control a lot of themes offer over the look and feel of a site, can you blame them? So what’s a designer to do? It’s simple, really: start designing premium themes yourself. It’s like the old adage, “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em!”.

Our new Successful Theme Selling eBook will give you all the information you need to get started selling themes, either on your own website or through a marketplace (or both).

It’ll fill you in on exactly what you need to know about creating successful themes, how to market them, the pros and cons of marketplaces vs. setting up your own theme site, and more.

Included are tips from successful theme designers and a complete checklist to get you started selling your own themes. It’s a great side income for any designer, and with the right plan, it can even become your primary source of design income! Wouldn’t that be awesome? Many designers are already doing it and success can also be within your reach, let us show you how…

Detailed inside the book you can find:

  • How to figure out what users want
  • Why too many options aren’t a good thing
  • Finding the right niche
  • The key ingredients of the top themes
  • How to decide where to sell your themes
  • The importance of a marketing plan
  • How to write great sales pages
  • Branding your themes
  • A variety of promotional methods and how to make the best use of them
  • A checklist for creating profitable themes
  • The importance of further education

So stop dealing with clients who are constantly second-guessing your pricing, trying to lowball you or get a discount, or dragging their feet paying their bills. Instead, deal with the clients you want to deal with, and refer the rest to your premium themes!

    Thank you for the ebook.
    I started Selling my WordPress themes early this year and its only a amazing experience, got to know a lot of people especially graphic designers and illustrators. The income from the premium themes is great and also getting many side projects. My advice for anyone trying to open wordpress theme shop, is to be unique and give great customer support.
