Hello everyone, I hope you are well :slight_smile:

I’ve created a free WordPress theme “Pluton”, I submitted it on wordpress.org, it takes at least 5 months of waiting for an examination, in the meantime, I would like to promote my theme, like that, when come out on the WordPress directory, it will already have a good reputation.
I’ve read lots of article on the web to promote a theme, I notice that most of the posts talking about guest blogging, paid reviews, blog, etc.
Unfortunately, I do not speak much English, so for guest blogging and blog, it will be a little difficult.
I thought the paid reviews but for now, I do not make money.

Here is the URL of my site: https://plutonwp.com/

Can you help me or give me some advice?

Thank you very much :slight_smile:

Your design is better ways to promo for your theme.
I think you should create more home page example, more sections.
Current it is so simple for using.

You can share your product via socials group on Facebook, Twitter,…

It is in the links “View Demos” on https://plutonwp.com, this site is for download Pluton, see the extensions and the support.

For the attractive customer, you should put that into homepage as a landing page.

Not every blog makes you pay to feature them (although it might help for some). For a list of blogs to reach out to, check out the WordPress News Sources thread.

I’d also recommend having some sort of about page on your site. Although some popular theme websites don’t have one, I think it helps to know a little background information about the actual people behind the product.

I’m personally hesitant to use a theme or plugin if I can’t find any information about the author.

Hello @leland, I am creating a page about me, thank you for the advice :slight_smile:
For blogs, I contacted several and I received some answers, most kindly told me that they could not help me and one blog has kindly agreed to include my theme in their posts, it’s WPKube :slight_smile:
I will tried to contact other blogs with WordPress News Sources link.

Thank you very much :slight_smile:

@PlutonWP If you’re crankin’ out EDD over at https://plutonwp.com/extensions/, then why not add https://AffiliateWP.com into the mix? You don’t really have to make it “public” that you’re inviting affiliates by putting menu items into the theme. But if you’ll actually give people an incentive, then you’ll find people more than willing to promote your site!

Affiliates will make video walk throughs of the site, each of the plugins, theme setups, post in large Facebook Groups, do screenshots and more… BUT 'ya gotta make it worth their time :dollar:

:wink: Hope that helps!
