Apparently it’s quite possible to build a WordPress theme with only a team of two professionals and completely bankroll it to extreme profitability – like over $100,000 per month profitable.
It makes you take a step back, especially if you’re a business that sells themes, and say to yourself:
What the heck am I doing wrong?!
Or perhaps some derivative of that, perhaps adding an expletive of your own if you wish.
Whatever it is, the two guys, Luke Beck and Muhammad Haris, are doing it “right” in many ways, and at the very least financially:
Each year here at Envato brings with it new records, but this one is particularly amazing. I was very excited to discover recently, that the author ThemeFusion, a partnership between Luke Beck and Muhammad Haris, has completely smashed our monthly author earnings records. For not one, but two months now, they’ve hit over $100,000 in earnings. But what is most amazing, they’ve done it with just one WordPress Theme: Avada.
When asked what they thought was their “secret” to their success they honestly share that they didn’t think they had any advanced formula or tricks up their sleeve.
In fact, they give a lot of credit to Themeforest itself simply being a great resource and marketplace for their customers to enter into their billfolds. They do add that they do provide great customer support and that quality support is a marquee part of what they do for their customers (and attracting new ones).
Learn more about their success in a few more questions via Notes.Envato and then go and do likewise. Anything even remotely close to $100k per month would be fantastic, right?
Congrats guys and best of luck in the future!
