We’re running a WordPress contest for the Best ‘Business Themes We Don’t Have Yet’ on ThemeForest.

How do you win?

The Best 5 WordPress ‘Business Themes We Don’t Have Yet’ win $2,000 each!

What We’re Looking For

ThemeForest is bursting with opportunity as many people are looking for something specific that meets their needs and expectations. While we’ve seen great success with new niche business themes like construction and transportation this past year, there are still a number of business areas that are not yet serviced on the marketplace. By creating the right business theme you can quickly move up on the sales chart, and get in front of the largest audience of active theme buyers on the planet. All ‘Business Themes We Don’t Have Yet’ uploaded between 17th February and 11th May will be eligible to win one or more of our 5 cash prizes! If you’re looking for inspiration or have an idea you’re not sure about feel free to drop us a private message we’re here to help!

To be eligible for the contest your theme must:

  • Be a business theme that is dedicated to one service or purpose.
  • Be for a business type that is not readily available on ThemeForest at this time. Your business theme must be one of the first of it’s kind!
  • Include design & features that are relevant to the business chosen. Don’t include features or elements that are not relevant.
  • Service pages and details should extend further than just a basic description or lists. A more in-depth and engaging presentation of the service, specific to the needs of that industry and target audience, is integral to the theme buying experience and converting potential customers.
  • Themes with ‘placeholder’ text or images in the live preview will not be eligible. For example avoid using the default placeholder products or text (eg. “lorem ipsum” or similar). The placeholder copy must either contextually describe and highlight your theme features and/or be relevant to your theme’s content.
  • We’re not looking for Multi-Purpose themes during this contest so just stick to one business type.

@JoshuaSprague

What if two authors upload same category themes in the period? Do we need to register the theme category first?

Can’t we upload a business website which is already available? may be 2-5 is already available?

Why isn’t this contest open for HTML templates? :frowning:

Dog walkers, key-cutters and deep-sea welders. I think they’re the niches to go for in 2016.


#14

Hi @JoshuaSprague,

How about a theme for Plugins/Themes/Apps/Software Provider which offers fully functionalities for that purpose? Is it suitable for this contest?


#15

Nice contest. Good Luck guys, I´ll tried to design a Coaching or a Psychologists theme or drone company theme, lets do a brainstorm.


#16

Yes it is a subcategory of business. As a reminder, “we are looking for a business type that is not readily available on ThemeForest at this time. Your business theme must be one of the first of it’s kind!” In general I would say we are looking for a business niche where we have 5 or less already on the marketplace at this time.

As for “niche features,” A theme should have a live preview / demo site that effectively captures the look & feel of the specific niche and should have all the needed page templates and functionality to meet that niche’s specific website needs.

Hope that helps :slight_smile:

Hi @surjithctly “we are looking for a business type that is not readily available on ThemeForest at this time. Your business theme must be one of the first of it’s kind!”_ In general I would say we are looking for a business niche where we have 5 or less already on the marketplace at this time. No need to be first really as we will be considering what we had before the contest started.

Hope that helps :slight_smile:
