Too good to be true? Become an Author!
At the end of 2016, our Chief Monster, David Braun, was holding a regular Monster Meeting with his management and marketing teams.
The numbers brought up during the meeting showed that TemplateMonster.com is growing steadily. That year, TM launched better products and earned more customer trust than ever before.
But still, everyone in that room knew that big changes were coming.
There were just too many questions. As the team was answering them one by one, it became clear what 2017 would be all about - the marketplace.
We spent the first half of 2017 doing background work. By the end of the summer, TemplateMonster created new teams, revamped TM Customer Service, worked out new quality, pricing, and membership policies.
Everyone was full of enthusiasm, but the question still lingered: What if it doesn’t work out?
In August, everything was ready and we finally gave The Call.
The first few months were critical. There were designers who had been waiting for this invitation for years. They immediately responded and started selling.
But we were still wondering: What about those who never thought of becoming our partner before? Will new designers come?
And they did.
Six months after the launch, we were selling more than 1,100 author products. Now our most profitable categories are:
By the end of 2017, more than 1,000 authors joined TM Marketplace. 40% of them made more than $100K in sales.
We had to do something about it.
So, we had a big Monster Party!
It’s 2018 already, and we are not going to stop.
This year, we expect to be selling as many as 100,000 author products! Will your creations be among them?
One more thing: we adore our authors and spoil them with presents and cool contests.
And of course, leave your questions and comments below.
I'll answer them gladly!
