TemplateMonster: The Largest Web Templates Marketplace Success Story
A website is no longer a static page. A website is a digital front door of your business that can interact with every single visitor who lands on it by chance. Don’t you remember how things were when you first started surfing the web? The history of web design started as a puzzle box emptied over a table with lots of elements but no clue of what to do with all those pieces. Fortunately, these days we have another choices.
A long time ago, when a team of five had started developing custom websites, TemplateMonster’s history of success and professionalism began. Time to remember and learn. However, success is indeed a hard nut to crack.
As a rule, opportunities come when you least expect them. In the year 2004, it turned out that one talented guy could design a full-fledged website using his own collection of DIY design elements of website layouts. That’s where a history of out-of-box-fully-functional website templates began. Thereafter, there was no looking back.
Website Templates – The Beginning
The birth of website templates has led TemplateMonster to the massive growth accompanied by numerous ups and downs. Indeed, failure is the pillar of success. That’s a fact. Well, it took an enormous amount of hard work. In fact, a team of skilled professionals developed real products and services to real customers all around the world. They could design any shape, layouts, animations, and interactions using Flash.
However, unexpectedly Apple decided to abandon it on their first products. Thus, Flash started to decay. The only way we had was to start learning new skills and getting to work, like it or not, but ideas and opportunities don’t just materialize out of thin air. Yes, it was hard. It was a lot of new work. Time was limited. However, if you want to do what you want, you need to do it your way. And you know what? Well, yep, we did it!
Actually, a little mindset change can make all the difference. On the other hand, the credit goes to the gifted team of professionals who reached the company from the beginning, to say nothing of a combination of experience and a young, high-potential staff with drive, common sense, and business acumen. They all work together to make sure you get the best solution possible.
From the very beginning, we’ve been producing website templates on our own and we didn’t have the slightest idea about the marketplace business model. However, nothing is constant but change. The web market is changeable, complex, and fathomless, and with that, TemplateMonster became a marketplace.
It follows that TemplateMonster welcomes third-party developers, designers, and digital product manufacturers to the club. Think what would the advantage really be? Think again. The first thing we did was we scrounged up guys we like and offered them become vendors on the TemplateMonster marketplace. To tell the truth, this invite called out them out of the blue at first. But you know what? Once, we bumped into really premium WordPress themes designed by a talented guy from Belarus. Here comes the most interesting part – his total income exceeded 2K in the last few months. Sounds good?
The Real-World Benefits Behind TemplateMonster Marketplace

- Why Choose TemplateMonster Marketplace Over ThemeForest or MojoMarketplace?
In fact, there are many reasons worth becoming a vendor and doing it for the long run.

- Nothing is off limits in terms of product submissions once on TemplateMonster marketplace. ThemeForest allows only one digital product submission to one category at a time.
- With a ’Quick Start’ a vendor can earn up to 70% from each sale for his/her Exclusive product. It seems like a much faster way to get higher commissions compared to ThemeForest.
- A vendor can assign more than 1 category to his/her digital products via the Vendor Profile.
- No matter the location of a vendor, payments can be withdrawn via a great number of payment systems. Net15 Payments
- The Ticket System allows a vendor to get a quick and well-equipped response.
In addition, a Quality Index system will be implemented to give every vendor a ranking. This means, depending on several indicators, the ranking will be calculated.
