Tips: How To Grow Your Sales At SharpTheme

How to Prepare a Template for Selling it on the SharpTheme Marketplace

The general rule is simple: your product must visually differ from the original theme. We have prepared for you a cheat sheet, so you do not have to guess what details have to be changed, and what can be left as is.

What Should Be Changed

Here is a list of things that must be modified in order for your theme to be accepted by our team of moderators. We praise creativity and believe that every product on our marketplace should bring something new to our ecosystem and our customers. That’s why we encourage our sellers to create really unique products.

ONE by SharpTheme. Guidelines for contributors

 

Since we recently launched the selection process for ONE Subscription service, this guidelines list is created to assist our vendors to objectively decide whether their items will fit to be added to ONE.

Check these main requirements and feel free to contact us support SharkTheme.

Graphics only. At the moment, we are focused on graphics items to be added to the subscription. Please check the current graphic category diversity on our website.

Up-to-date items. In order to make the subscription service full of high-quality products, we set the limit for products: items that were released over three years ago will be declined.

Support Excellence will be an advantage. We welcome supportive and friendly authors that will be able to handle customers’ requests in time.

Wide product range. We are looking for authors with a portfolio with 100+ items. Authors with fewer products will not be considered.

We encourage you to submit a request to join ONE as a contributor here.

You are welcome to our Vendors Community, where we regularly post new updates regarding subscription service, marketplace promotions and important news.

 

Product Promotion

Being an author on a digital marketplace is something more than just submitting your items.

These items should be of the highest quality and correspond to all the technical and visual guidelines.

It is pretty challenging to sell digital items in perpetual competition with other vendors.

For this plenty of reasons, promotion is important in selling your products and attracting more and more customers.

On behalf of SharpTheme,  we do the following:

  • Regularly launch topical sales.
  • Planning marketing campaigns.
  • Highlighting vendor’s products via various marketing channels.
  • Advertising top templates on a homepage, product category sliders.
  • Make promo videos about the best items.

Please note that the marketplace team is just partially responsible for promoting your templates and increasing sales quantity. The significant part of success is author’s efforts and hard work with the target audience.

Since we are talking about the digital products promotion, we highly recommend you joining social networks and generating your own fresh content.

The list of recommended activities to boost your sales:

  • Communication with your potential and existing clients.
  • Publishing your content in public groups.
  • Arranging polls, giveaways.
  • Sharing your experience and ideas with a wide amount of users.

Additional ways to promote your products on a digital marketplace:

  • Social media advertising.
  • Online communities for self-promotionsuch as Behance, Dribbble etc.
  • Excellent customer service is also crucial. Providing superb customer service is not just solving problems and answering requests in a timely manner but the way to gain positive reviews and recommendations. It is a key part of your marketing strategy.

To conclude, sales quantity and brand recognizability are the results of a complex work of a vendor as well as marketplace team. Not only plattform, but its authors are responsible for the end result: it is impossible to submit your product and become a top author the next day.
