I have been contacted by MOJO Themes about a cool new giveaway! Just for signing up for an account they they are offering five random readers of this blog prizes from the marketplace. Here are the details of the prize package:

1. Their #1 selling Wordpress theme, Apollo Wordpress Theme. This is a very professional looking theme that should give any business an online presence in no time.

2. A tumblr theme called Theme for Themers. This is a nice clean theme. At $10, it’s also a pretty inexpensive way to have a tumblr page that stands out.

3. The Neoteric HTML template. Of the three, this is my favorite. I am not sure what type of site can best take advantage of it, but I imagine there are many businesses for whom this would work.

To enter the giveaway, just complete these three easy steps:

Step 1: Retweet this post.

Step 2: Follow @mojo_themes on twitter.

Step 3: Comment on this post with your MOJO Themes username, so they know where to deposit the prizes.

My review of MOJO Themes:

The first thing I thought after being contacted by MOJO was how slick their site looks. Maybe I am just partial to cartoon pirate dragons, but I think their site looks great. There is a lot information to present with a site like this. You want visitors to know immediately that they are looking at a theme/skin marketplace. You need to highlight user account login/signup/account info and the popular designs that visitors will most likely be interested in. MOJO has managed to do a pretty good job with this. Hovering your mouse over any of the templates or themes will produce a good sized popup to preview the design.

I also think their site is very easy to use. I found it very easy to move from the main marketplace site to a demo of the product and back. One feature I would recommend adding is the ability to remain on the demo page and cycle through a whole category of products instead of going back and forth. Also as the site grows, some more features related to filtering results would be nice too.  I didn’t see any option to sort by color for example. A lot of themes come in multiple colors, so maybe that’s the reason.

I did go through the checkout process to purchase the Apollo theme and it was very easy. There is a downloads area in the user account section where all of your purchases are shown.

Just click the link, and you’ll be ready to install the theme quickly.

Overall I think the emergence of marketplaces like MOJO are great for designers. While custom work will continue to be the bread and butter for most designers, the ability to design a theme once, upload it, and then sit back and collect payments is great. Even if you don’t make as many sales as you hope, extra exposure is always a good thing. Plus I bet that customization requests come in quite often for themes in the marketplace since everyone will want something a little bit different for their site.

    I want to show appreciation to the writer for bailing me out of such a difficulty. Just after researching throughout the the net and seeing proposals that were not powerful, I was thinking my life was over. Existing without the presence of answers to the problems you’ve solved by means of your main post is a crucial case, and the kind which could have in a wrong way affected my career if I had not discovered your web page. Your talents and kindness in taking care of all the pieces was very helpful. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I had not discovered such a point like this. I can at this moment look forward to my future. Thanks for your time very much for your impressive and sensible guide. I will not be reluctant to recommend your site to anyone who desires assistance about this matter.

    The personal loans seem to be essential for guys, which want to start their company. As a fact, that is not really hard to get a car loan.
