We’re happy to announce the addition of a whole new category to ThemeForest – BuddyPress!
BuddyPress is an open source social networking software package that can be installed on WordPress. It basically transforms WordPress into a full on social networking system. It’s an amazingly handy community tool.
Lance, our Growth Team Manager, recently posted on ThemeForest about how things are looking with the new category. Here’s what he had to say:
Recently we discovered that not only are BuddyPress themes selling like crazy, they’re also one of the top searched items on ThemeForest. Naturally we decided to give BuddyPress its own category. Categories improve browsing and, in turn, sales so I’m guessing we’ll see a spike here soon.
If huge sales isn’t enough of a motivating factor to get you making BP themes, here are a couple other advantages.
- BuddyPress items will be price $10 higher than an equivalent WP theme
- You are allowed to have a BuddyPress version of your existing theme
- Over the next couple weeks we’ll be giving this category some extra promotion
- Thousands of people search for this file type on TF every month
I look forward to see what you guys can come up with. I’m always amazed at the incredible work you do. Good luck with sales!
