Wordpress Themes make big business on the internet, and with customers’ specific demands, a huge amount of suppliers has risen to promote their own theme.
The big amount of suppliers make for an interesting market, even with prizes high as $99.-, total revenue will always small, since competition is strong.
Why is the Theme market organized in this particular way?
To have a good understanding of how Wordpress themes are distributed (which is necessary in order to be successful in being an affiliate for them), you need to understand that the product in itself is a particular one.
Wordpress themes have low production value, a lot of time can be put in to building them, but material costs are minimal and they can be reproduced unlimitedly.
Anyone can create a theme, and many do so. A large corporation isn’t necessary to build a business creating themes, so constant sales are not required. This way a lot of small businesses have proven to be successful by selling a few or even one Theme. When a theme is finished, the only thing left to do for the creator is to keep it updated, and most importantly, sold. PPC bidding wars in a marked crowded with small companies are impossible, the price for a single click is too high because hundreds of competitors are willing to pay a penny more for that click.
This is where affiliate marketers come in. They are safe promoters for the theme sellers, because they are only paid upon a sale. The high prizes make it possible for affiliate marketers to earn big commissions.
Wordpress theme sellers and affiliate marketers are suited for each other.
