Lifetime memberships are up for grabs over at the Elegant Themes blog which shared that they’ve crossed the 5 year mark as a company and business.
That’s a long time for those that are just now entering into the wild and wooly WordPress ecosystem. I remember when I first encountered Elegant Themes and was surprised at their “interesting” pricing schematic: A one-price fits all (e.g. every single theme).
I remember even using some of their themes years ago for some friends who were interested in getting a nice looking blog up and running – since I had a membership I just picked one out for them and done – much more “designed” than the out-of-the-box yearly theme!
Nick shared a bit of what the past has looked like and what the future holds:
It seems like just yesterday that I registered ElegantThemes.com in my college campus apartment and launched the service with a single theme, BlueSky. Late nights and double espressos fueled my excitement and kept the new themes coming as I searched for time between classes and school projects to focus on design.
He goes on to share that the business now sees over 180,000 members with 82 themes and a team of 20 employees. That’s not bad growth and I expect it will continue strongly! The plan now is to continue to expand the San Francisco based office and provide incredible support for their growing customer base.
Again, congratulations to the team for a job well done and make sure you enter into their giveaway for 20 lifetime accounts! They have been around the block and there’s no reason to believe that you won’t literally have that account for your entire lifetime.
