Selling Web Themes and Templates.

by MMOYW 4 replies
Assuming the quality of the Web themes, templates, and squeeze pages are quality, why are people selling on places like ThemeForest, Woo Themes, etc.?

I was hoping to use my PPC skills (or lack of skills - LOL) to sell direct to my site, but now I am starting to panic. Is there no way to compete with these sites? What do people know that I don't?

    You can sell your themes through your own site just fine, other theme designers are using theme forest and other marketplaces because they already have the targeted traffic.

      So it is better using Themeforest in your opinion?

        Sell it as Warrior Special Offer for 30 days and after that sell it on your site.

    simples: Sell where the money is! Themeforest etc have tons of traffic and people looking for themes - unless you are doing an elegantthemes.com style membership for a bulk amount of themes otherwise themforest is great - and hey PPC will be too - if you get good conversion and find the right keywords
