Does themeforest provide traffic ?

I was wondering if I should dedicate more of my time on themeforest themes. I do have one question which only someone who has already sold quite a few themes on themeforest can answer. Say, if I successfully publish a file on themeforest, will it get good amount of sales from traffic from themeforest alone? Basically what I am asking is if just publishing the theme on themeforest is enough to get sales ?

Any answer would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

If your theme made enough sales it should reserve a place in the Popular Items list , which means it will sustain a huge amount of views for at least another week

If your theme fails to make enough sales then you’ll probably need handle the traffic on your own.

Thank you very much.
Do you have any stats as to the approximate number of views a brand new theme gets ? Or I guess your experience with your first theme would do. Like after publishing, how much views it received, the conversion rate (if themeforest provides that kind of info).

Unfortunately I haven’t published any new items in the last couple of years , But we used to get around 2000-5000 views in the first couple of days , Usually All-In-One themes get better traffic since they lean to a wider range of customers.

Regarding stats , I’m not sure about conversion rate , but you should be able to check each item’s referrals among other things .

Things have change a bit since themes are now sorted by “best sellers” by default , which of course diminished new items’ traffic, but on the other hand envato gained millions of new members in the last couple of years.
