Check out the official release announcement, which was handed to us a week ago but effective today:
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Creative Market, the marketplace for handcrafted, mousemade design content, today announced that leading WordPress themes provider WooThemes has begun selling their premium themes through the Creative Market platform. This new partnership will open up an even greater selection of high-quality WordPress themes to Creative Market customers, as well as give WooThemes a new distribution and revenue channel from the Creative Market community.
“WooThemes shares our passion for community and top-notch customer experiences, which is why we’re proud to open up the WooThemes shop on Creative Market. Now Creative Market customers will get access to not only WooThemes’ incredible handcrafted WordPress themes, but also their world-class after-purchase support,” said Creative Market co-founder Aaron Epstein.
WooThemes stands apart in the industry not only for their beautiful theme designs, but for their exemplary customer service and support. WooThemes is known for prioritizing support and taking care of their customers to ensure a positive and enriching experience. Creative Market is pleased to add WooThemes into its evergrowing community to showcase the level and quality of designs and support it’s marketplace provides.
Creative Market is a much smaller marketplace than, say, the ThemeForest network which also supports WooThemes’ products:
Only time will tell if Creative Market finds a healthy financial return for WooThemes. For example, in ThemeForest, they’ve only sold 346 products total for all of their offerings, which is surprisingly low compared to some of the mega-hits that you hear every so often.
This may be due to the fact that WooThemes already has a powerful and established brand within the WP ecosystem so that many are buying directly instead of through ThemeForest.
Congrats to Creative Market and the collaboration with WooThemes – they are a great group to have on board!
