I've added a "Trial theme" to my theme-selling site. What do you think? 🤔

I've gotten lots of requests to offer a free theme that acts as a "trial". This way people can get a full preview of what BuildFaster's HTML themes are like and how easy they are to use.

So I did just that. 😎

The "Half-Half" theme is now 100% FREE. 🤩

Half-Half is a modern newsletter signup template that you can use to gain subscribers quick.

You can download it on Gumroad here: https://gum.co/CqlLdt 👈

And see the live preview too: Light Mode, Dark Mode

Light Mode 🌞

Half-half Light mode

Dark Mode 🌙

Half-half Dark mode

It would be awesome if you could take a few minutes to get the theme and take a look 👀.

Do you think this is a good idea? Can this lead to future paid conversions?

Thanks so much for your input 😄

    Yes, You will get more traction with this. Why? Even though they are not paying, You will atleast have an email of them which you can use later to notify them or maybe ask for feedback, in general. (I am assuming you get their emails but I have no idea how gumroad works).

    1. 2

      Yes I was thinking of that too. Gumroad does ask for emails when someone gets a theme.

      I have already gotten a few downloads and some feedback on it. It also gives me some credibility because I can add a couple more testimonials to my site.

  2. 1

    Yes Brayden. I think this would help a lot. Like you said:

    people can get a full preview of what BuildFaster's HTML themes
    are like and how easy they are to use.

    If this theme makes a good impression on them, they are more likely to buy a paid theme.

    Keep up the good work and I wish you the best :)
