We have been talking with lots of people interested in starting their own WordPress theme business. Now, with the launch of, the opportunities for theme developers and designers to earn a healthy income have really grown. And with the recent news of MSN Spaces shutting down and moving to WordPress, an estimated 30 million new users may be in the market for a custom design or new themes. The door is wide open!

  1. You mean that what I produce with SB could be sold on a marketplace? Doesn’t it need to include the whole SB framework to work? With other frameworks I have to give my clients the framework itself for my theme to work, so my license is actually lend to them to use it. If I talk about 10, 20 clients, the ones I could get as a local freelance, it looks ok but if I sell the theme on a marketplace I could have hundreds of customers and all of them will have my SB license at the foundation of their website…
    Unless, of course, the final theme will actually be independent from the SB framework, which would be fabulous and very useful.
    Please, explain me better how I could sell the themes produced with SB, thanks!

    • Hello Enrico!

      Basically, StartBox exists as a stand-alone theme and your theme would reference it as a template. So, users would need a copy of StartBox in order to use your theme. I’m working on something right now that should hopefully make it far easier to distribute your theme without fear of sharing your license, and that should be ready at the end of the month!
