Remove ad campaigns as part of the Elite program, reduce the ad spend by 50% provide that as a cash bonus to Elites – they can then decide to either invest in their own campaigns / ads or pocket the money. Everyone is a winner. I’ve suggested this for about 2 yrs now as the ad campaigns do not work, it’s just a waste.

Huge +1, the ad campaigns are worthless…

Some of the reasoning’s buyers put are just way outta whack, 99% of them are due to operator error so they immediately blame the product or the process. I wish there was a better way to weed out those types of ratings or be able to contact the buyer directly and work the problem out and have the rating changed — only about 50% of the time I would have been working with them on my support site and can match up the usernames and work on it from there which always ends up in a them changing it to a 5 star.

That looks like every other theme on Themeforest, but maybe look at Bridge or Brooklyn in the Popular Items list.

I’d recommend contacting the author directly via the item comments, profile or if they have a dedicated support site. This is a public forum.

That Jova site is pretty dope. Just to keep the answer short and sweet authors will always create what sells, niche themes sell much less. It seems that most just look at the top 5 and think “hey, I’ll create that exact same damn thing and be rich!”. That’s why every other theme looks like Avada or Bridge its ridonkculous, however you’ll notice those themes hardly sell.

Literally these days to get a top seller its like hitting the lottery, and there’s no special sauce it seems to be random when a theme hits big from what I’ve seen in my 6+ years on Themeforest.

Honestly who cares if new or old authors open up rant threads, you don’t have to read them. Dunno how you find the time to write novel length threads like this lol
