Hello community, it is amazing to be part of themeforest.
I’ve been working hard expending the last 4 months learning a lot and after a soft reject and theme been reviewed 10 times (LoL) my first themeforest item was approved. I felt amazing and it was such an achievement for me. I felt so great!
After one week I had 13 sales which seems to be great, except for the fact that they stopped all of the sudden and right now I feel like a themeforest ghost hhehehehehhe Why is it so hard for new theme authors to be valued? I really believe in my work and on my theme.
What happened? Is this normal? Of course I wont give up and I am already working on my second theme, I would like just to have more clarity about the sum of work I’m gonna spend on future projects. Because, the way it is right now, it is clear that I wont make a living from this.
It doesnt seem fair that themeforest gets 70% of profit and I still have to invest on adwords… it seems so odd to me because traffic and visibility should be the major reason why to invest energy, time and knowledge here… and not just one week of visibility. Or may be not? I really dont know… perhaps if some of you share your own experience we could learn more. I am glad! Thank you!
