TemplateMonster is a unique marketplace that has gathered 5 million customers and lots of digital product makers under its brand. If you are an author of a free product and you want to add it to the marketplace, you need to know what product requirement you should follow, and how to promote your goods. Feel free to follow this step-by-step guide.
*Please mind that uploading an item as a freebie you cannot transform it into a premium product during an update.
The requirements are the same for free products and premium ones.
All free products are licensed as follows:
While not guaranteed, most shop owners experience a general increase in sales and activity across their shops while their free goods are live. This includes sales of other products, views, reviews.
Lets’ speak numbers. If you check Ubersuggest’s Free Keyword Tool for the average monthly number of Google searches of “free website templates,” you will come up with the stats like this:
There is an average of 5,400 monthly searches for “free website templates,” which can bring you the respective numbers of potential traffic if you promote freebies along with premium items.
You can use your free products as an additional tool to promote your premium goods. The mechanism is simple: you need to add some part of the premium product as a free one and include the link to the premium version of the product in the description (you can use the ReadMe file). For example, when you open the Live Demo version of the free Intense website template, you will notice promo banners that invite a customer to enjoy the benefits of using the premium version of the Intense theme.
To link your new free product pages to a premium theme, push the Add link button when you’re adding the first Presentational image >>
It lets you add a reference to your premium product from your free product page. The clickable banner option lets Authors increase conversion on their premium product, pages getting a significant sales boost.
As an example, you may check the Emily Benson – Free Photography One Page WordPress Theme to see how the feature works.
No doubt, a free product is a perfect way to introduce yourself to the new audience, demonstrate the quality of your products and their “inner world”. This is also a great promotional tool that lets you grow sales of your premium items.
