Hey there! this is Daimary John and in this post, How to sell WordPress themes? I will guide you through all the important “Needs” and “Procedures”, so that you can be “Focused” towards your business.
1. Know your market
Till date, the most advanced theme that I’ve seen for WP is undoubtedly “Divi”. Designed by “Elegant Themes”. Man, I will surely buy this in a later stage. The whole package costs around ₹15,000.
It comes with preloaded super “Drag & Drop” capability and it also comes packed with divi “Plugins” too.
Now imagine your plugin to be priced at around ₹25,000-50,000… hmm?
Many developers start at just $1. That is roughly around ₹66. So the main challenge would obviously be to “Set the correct Price”.
2. Know your design
Different topic, different category. Demands different Theme.
3. Market your theme
In my preference, I would strongly recommend you to advertise your product on YouTube. This will cost you a reasonable amount. Plus, you will be capable of reaching the right audience. By the way, Divi did the same, and that’s how I came to know about Divi.
You can sell it on the popular sites such as Theme Forest. Or, in my best advice. I would straightly suggest you to sell your themes on your own blog. This way, not only can you keep all the shares. But you will also have full control over your theme. But you will also have to do the most work and most importantly, Funding.
If you can beat all the difficulties in your business, Success! Success! and Success!
