I have a suggestion,
Please collaborate with Web Developer Youtubers like Laravel Daily, Bitfumes etc. So that they can create up to date video tutorials on how to integrate Metronic Template with different web technologies like Laravel, Vue JS, Inertia etc.. and Tutorial on creating Starter kits with different web technologies and access to tutorials repository code in download section may be provided to your customers who purchased your template.
In this fast pace changing world of web technologies your Metronic Templates are bit outdated like Laravel / Vuejs inertia versions as far as I know.
This move / step will help your team as well as your prestige customer's, also your Metronic template popularity will reach to more potential customers that will lead to more sales and revenue...
Also Start creating Polls for your customers can vote for features that your customers need the most, so that you can prioritize the upcoming features development life cycle that has most weightage that also helps you to keep the template upto date with the latest technologies..
Thank you for your very valuable feedback. We will definitely take them into account.
We are currently working on some new solutions and soon we will officially announce the theme.
I will try to reach some of the tuts creators right away. Your advice is much appreciated.
You can add referral system by means of coupon code, that will give some discount to users who purchased your theme through their referral code or link. Additionally Tutorial Creator will also earn some additional revenue through referral.. (you will also get to know the source of new customers)
+Plus your theme publicity will also reach to their user base(millions of new users) (Free Marketing Strategy) Win Win Situation (AdminLTE template is popular due to tutorials videos, many tutorial creator use and recommend this template in their videos for making some Admin panel type applications)
Also I suggest you to provide Metronic free Version with basic bare minimum HTML template structure similar to AdminLTE Free Version and those who want premium features / components / support can purchase your paid version.
While writing this I found Free Templates link in footer section but again its not reaching to potential users due to lack of marketing strategy.
Thank you for the ideas.
We have a referral program for our market products and for Metronic can be used the Themeforest referral program.
According to Themeforest terms, we can not distribute Metronic's free version.
But we can provide a license for tutorial authors to use it for education purposes.
However, we have plenty of free HTML templates with premium quality.
