How is selling child themes going ?Aug. 21, 2015
Brainstorming about effective ways to monetize our theme business for both users/devs I figured out that child themes might be a good way ( WooThemes model ), does anyone else try it and is happy to share thoughts ?
My concerns are :
- Selling Child Themes on top of a popular free theme means you might not be as effective as selling a pro version ( financial wise ), you would sell it cheaper and don't know how many people will get 2+
- Selling Child Themes on top of an already premium version makes me worry about the distribution, let's say you have 20-30 new paid user per day, with a 5-10% conversion rate and a low price tag ( about 30% of the premium theme ), you can get a 1.5-3% increase in revenue which seems a bit low.
