This is a guest post from Helen Souness of Envato, a PressNomics Sponsor.
We’re so excited to be sponsoring PressNomics again this year. Last year’s event was absolutely fantastic according to all reports from our founders who attended. This year we are very excited to have the following team going:
- Helen Souness, GM Marketplaces
- Justin French, Product Owner
- Lance Snider, Growth Manager
- Scott Wills, Community Manager
- Japh Thomson, WordPress Evangelist
If you’re not sure who Envato is, we’re the company behind eight different Marketplaces selling digital products, including ThemeForest which sells templates such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla and E-Commerce themes, CodeCanyon which sells plugins and scripts and VideoHive which sells video footage and AfterEffects files. We also run the Tuts+ Network of nine tutorial sites teaching people how to code, design and even craft. Our recent addition to the Envato stable is MicroLancer where people can get small design and coding jobs done for a set fee and turn around time, super easily. We now have over 3 million members in our community worldwide, and we welcome thousands more every month.
On ThemeForest we currently have over 3,400 WordPress themes for sale, and over 1,800 WordPress plugins for sale on CodeCanyon, with new items being added to both every month.
At PressNomics we will bring you some insights that we’ve collected recently from our ThemeForest and CodeCanyon customers, identifying CMS and WordPress usage and trends as well as sharing some stories from our conversations with a few of our successful theme and plugin creators.
We’re looking forward to chatting and hanging out with all of you at PressNomics this year. Bring on Rawhide, I’m dusting off my cowboy boots!
Thanks so much to Sally, Josh and the Pagely team for what sounds like being a fantastic event. We’ll see you there
