Did you know that ThemeForest makes free items available for your website?
Every month – without having to pay for it – you can download various items from there:
- a free website template;
- a free background music for a video;
- a free video introduction;
- a free 3D photo;
- a free ordinary photo;
- a free plugin
The only thing you have to do is register and become a member.
Every month I download the free stuff from ThemeForest.
ThemeForest free items
Also this month there is interesting free material available.
Do you want that too? This short manual gives you an overview of how to do this and what material you get. FIRST YOU MUST become a member of Envato. To clarify: Envato is the mother company of ThemeForest. Go to the website of ThemeForest and via ‘create an Envato account’ at the top of the page you can become a member.
After you have filled in all the details, you are a member and have access to the free material.
You can find the free items of ThemeForest on the front page:
If you click on one of the items, you will see on the right side that you can download this item for free: Download it for free
If that is not the case, you are probably not (properly) logged in.
If you click on it, the file will be downloaded to your computer. This is done in a .zip file. Then you can unpack the files with WinZip or another software program.
Let me tell you a little more about what you get. This is the free list:
1. A theme template
Almost every month you can get a complete theme for free! They are premium themes, with everything included. An excellent opportunity to try this out and you save 40 to 50 euros.
The only disadvantage is that you don’t get support and updates for this theme.
2. Music background for a video
I regularly make videos, but preferably also with music in the background.
This audio from Audio Jungle can be implemented in your movie. The above piece of music is a cheerful ukulele tune and lasts more than 2 minutes.
3. Video introduction
Often a video or tutorial starts with a video introduction, which makes it clear that the video is from one and the same author.
Have a look here to see how it looks like.
You still have to edit it and integrate it into your video, which requires some editing. To edit such a video introduction you also need a specific program, After Effects.
4. Mockup image
Graphic River gives you a free monthly image. In this case, it is a so-called mockup of a book. You can, for example, incorporate another image in the book.
5. 3D image
Always nice, a 3D image of – in this case – the earth. Here, too, you need special software to edit the image.
6. Chat plugin for websites
Every month there is also a free plugin. This is, for example, a plugin to create a chat feature on your website.
7. Stock photo
Your last free gift: a stock photo. Envato also has its own stock photo section: Photodune. You can download thousands of photos here for a few euros, but every month there is also one free of charge.
It’s inherent to this period in time. Many online companies offer free products in addition to their paid products.
It’s a way to attract new customers.
The same applies to me. Although I regularly download free stuff from ThemeForest, I have now also become a regular customer and buy software there as well.
But you can also take advantage of the free themes, video introductions or stock photos. That’s why I regularly go to the website of ThemeForest.
Just try it out. It is a great addition to let your WordPress website grow.
