A couple weeks ago I made a post about a new project Terran Marketing was working on. In that post I hinted it would be a site in the WordPress Themes space, but I wasn’t quite ready to talk about the project yet. Today I’m excited to not only talk about the project, but also announce that it’s officially live.
The name of the site is FreeWP.com, which is short for Free WordPress, or Free WordPress Themes.
Rewinding back to early 2004, the first affiliate marketing website I started was called Poker Source Online, which was later shorted to PokerSouce.com. I was lucky in the fact that I melded two of the hottest things going (online poker and poker chips) into one concept. The main focus of the site when I started was giving away a free set of poker chips in exchange for signing up for one of our featured online poker rooms. Today, the site gives away all kinds of stuff from Amazon.com gift cards to iPods, but the concept remains the same: get a nice affiliate commission and reward the person signing up under you. With this concept in mind FreeWP.com was born…
After running WordPress theme sites for almost a year now, I get asked two questions over and over again. 1) Can I get this theme for free? 2) How do I install this theme? FreeWP.com attempts to address both of these issues at once by integrating what can be a very complicated process into one signup form. Here is how it works:
- Pick any premium WordPress theme on the site
- Click the “get it free” button
- Pick your hosting plan
- Fill out the signup form and pay for your hosting package
- FreeWP.com does the rest, usually within 6 minutes
Basically, we’ll setup the hosting account, install WordPress, and activate the theme all automatically. At the end of the process the customer will get an email with information on their hosting account and theme developer. We’ve really made it that simple.
FreeWP.com is launching with 180 premium WordPress themes from developers like ElegantThemes.com, WooThemes.com, and WPZoom.com. These themes retail for $39.99 to $79, but are 100% free of charge when signing up via FreeWP.com. We are in the process of adding 100′s of additional themes and hope to be close to 400 before the end of the year.
This project has been in the works for many months and I’m really happy to have finally launched it. My hope is this concept will revolutionize the WordPress themes industry and provide an awesome service for those looking to get a premium WordPress theme.
