Note: Since originally posting this review Mojo Themes has undergone numerous changes and has expanded to include the Mojo Marketplace. The opinions and features shared in the article are no longer relevant.
I wanted to take some time today to review on of my newly favorite theme/site template market place, Mojo Themes. If you have ever visited Themeforest and loved it then you are going to love Mojo Themes as well.
It is a very similar site that offers premium WordPress Themes, Tumblr Themes, HTML/CSS templates, PSD and Email templates. And I believe they will soon be adding sections for Joomla, Drupal and other premium web developer sources, such as plugins.
While there are many sites out there such as Elegant Themes, that offer just WordPress Themes, Mojo Themes offers a variety of different templates to cater to the different platforms. This is great for web developers looking to easily make websites for their clients or for people such as myself that tend to own multiple domains at a time and is interested in buying and selling domains.
What Does Mojo Themes Offer?
Mojo Themes offers various premium templates for some of the more popular platforms such as WordPress and Tumblr as well as plain HTML/CSS templates. From what I have seen all of their themes are very well designed (Mojo Themes will only accept quality work) and even though there are still very few templates, because they are a relatively new site, there are still multiple templates for different niches.
Buy & Sell Themes
One of the coolest things about Mojo Themes is that not only can you go there to buy some pretty awesome themes but you can also sign up for the Free membership and start selling your own work.
Mojo Themes makes it really easy for people to start making some big bucks by selling their themes/templates. Setting up your own website and getting traffic can be difficult and take a lot of time, but Mojo Themes already has all that, so you can start selling right away. And best of all when you sell anything on Mojo Themes you get a 50% commission which is much higher then you will find in other market places.
Now here is the coolest thing about Mojo Themes – the “Collab Program“. Mojo Themes offers the very first collaboration program which allows developers and designers to work together to create products they can sell on the market place.
Basically when you sign into your account there is an upload button for each category, within each category there is a form near the end called “Join Forces” where you enter your partners username and registered email. This way, whenever you make a sale the commissions will be automatically split between all the parties in the partnership.
This is one of the best things about Mojo themes in my opinion. There are many people out there that have crazy web design skills but can’t code worth crap (and vice-versa). The joint-forces ability gives people with different skills the chance to come together and create something awesome. Personally I love coding WordPress Themes, but not so much designing them. I am thinking to join forces with a web designer as soon as I get some time, so we can come up with a cool WordPress Theme.
The main reason I joined Mojo Themes was obviously for their affiliate program, as I wanted to add their themes to WPExplorer.com and make some money from them. The affiliate program pays really well at 30% commission and they have their own affiliate system so you do not have to use a stupid third party such as e-junkie or shareasale. To me this is heaven – I absolutely hate using those 3rd party affiliate services.
Creating Affiliate links: Affiliate links are really easy to create and you can link to any page on their site, including the theme previews. All you need to do is add the following to the end of any Mojo-Themes url – “?r=username”.
I started marketing their themes about 3 weeks ago and so far have made $85. Compared to other Premium WordPress Themes I found that the clickthrough-rate of Mojo-Themes is really good and that people are actually buying their themes. Whereas at WooThemes it takes me about 1,000 clicks to get 1 sale (lame).
So if you are thinking of joining the affiliate program at Mojo-Themes go for it. It is super easy to use, the themes you will be promoting are for the most part awesome, commissions are good and the support is outstanding (they have responded within 1 day to all my inquiries).
My favorite Mojo Themes WordPress Theme
Alright so that is pretty much all there is to know about Mojo Themes, you really have to check them out to appreciate everything – ps: their site design is pretty cool too (worth a look).
I wanted to share with you my favorite WordPress Theme available at Mojo Themes and if you have been to WPExplorer.com you may know which it is, since I feature it on the homepage and on all theme pages. The theme is called Folio Studio and it is probably one of the coolest WordPress Themes on Mojo Themes.
Folio Studio has a very elegant and unique design – which is something really hard to find these days amongst free themes. The typography is freaking amazing, everything is not only easy to read but also pleasant to the eyes. And the featured slider on the homepage is awesome.
I am not the type of person who normally writes reviews, but I have really enjoyed my membership at Mojo Themes and was a bit intrigued by the idea of writing a Mojo Themes review, especially since it would be a good way to get the word out there about this site and hopefully get more people involved, as it is a relatively new website.
Anyway, if you have had any experience with Mojo Themes please comment below and let me know your thoughts. Thanks!
