We recently launched 2 (Moodle)themes in Themeforest and I should say it is quite exciting to be an author here. Both of our themes were “trending” at some point of time and it was fun watching sales figures. However, more on this later.
I am writing this post to ask 2 sets of questions:
Theme customization partners: We have been active service providers in Elance, and half of the projects we worked on involved TF theme customization tasks. That set me thinking - do you guys, as TF Authors, get these customization requests from theme buyers? If yes, have you ever considered tying up with a vendor who would handle such customization requests? Would you feel that offering customization services would add another USP to your themes? Personally I think if I am a theme buyer and if I need any customization done, I would prefer to engage the author, or a developer recommended by the author. Also, as a buyer, I would feel inclined to buy a theme from an author who provides customization services. What do you guys think? Would love to hear from veterans here.
External affiliate links: Is it allowed to have affiliate links to 3rd part services? Like for example, can I have an affiliate link to WP Engine or WP Curve in my author profile page? I scanned through help files and forums, but did not get any satisfactory information about this. Any pointers would be highly appreciated.
Thanks for reading my post, guys!
