After talking with some Envato folks, I come to find out that the theme’s design is too much like others in the marketplace. This is probably my fault for not spending more time researching the other themes. I’m not going to give up on getting a theme into ThemeForest, just might be reconsidering getting Lean there.
I spent the weekend trying to figure out a plan, and this is what I have come up with.
I am going to sell Lean myself and then use it as a base for creating other themes. That was actually the reason why I wanted to make it in the first place. I know there are quite a few people who enjoyed doing this with Standard, so I wanted to give people the opportunity to continue doing that.
I will be working on getting something in place so you can purchase it. I’m really hoping to have it ready to sell by Friday. There is one question I would like some feedback on though.
Should I make multiple versions like I did with the Standard Versions? I was thinking something like this:
- Blogger – $29
- Designer – $39
- Developer – $49
These would be a one-time download for the latest version. I’m still working on what I’ll do for support, but that will come at a later date.
Thanks to everyone who has encouraged me to continue and driving me to ship.
