What is Envato?
“Envato operates a group of digital marketplaces that sell creative assets for web designers, including themes, graphics, video, audio, photography and 3D models. It has over 1.5 million active buyers and sellers and over 6 million community members.” (source: https://g.co/kgs/jTt8dZ)
At envato, looking into the category of WordPress Themes, there are hundreds of developers present from all over the world, developing amazing wordpress themes. Tons of companies are publishing their themes with every passing day. Just look at the stats and imagine how difficult it would be to stand out from this crowd with your product. Yes, you can start wondering which theme would be the best one from these hundreds and thousands of themes out there at envato.
Let me tell you now: AVADA is the #1 selling wordpress theme on Themeforest for more than 3 years continuously. This theme costs only $60 and I’ve also purchased couple of licenses. Believe me, it’s really worth it. Avada was published in the year 2012 and recently it reached the milestone of 250,000 sales until August 2016. By the end of year 2015, avada had earned around $10 Million. Just calculate how much this one theme has earned in total
“Avada is the Swiss Army Knife of WordPress Themes. It does Everything!”
~ Collis Ta’eed, CEO of Envato
Mohemmed Haris, a Pakistani residing in Lahore, is the person behind development of this amazing wordpress theme. Envato Stories visited Haris in Lahore; watch this video, get to know how he started web development when he was in high school and eventually ended up building a #1 selling wordpress theme of all time:

I’ve been using Avada for about an year and in my opinion, it truly is a wonderful theme. i think the most significant thing which makes avada the most successful theme is its versatility. Whether you’re developing a website for your private business, portfolio, real estate, photography or anything else, avada will help you achieve your design goals with extreme perfection. Whether you’re a beginner or professional, avada enables you to fully take control of your website design with tons of options. From typography to layout, headers to blog styles, responsiveness to adaptability, avada offers everything at one place. Whenever there’s a client asking me to design his website using avada, I’m always excited and ready to get started
The Fusion Builder
O yes, fusion builder is the backbone of avada’s design capabilities. I’ve found Fusion Builder to be very user friendly, very easy to learn and there’s nothing too complex about this. Another lovely thing about fusion builder is the availability of Builder Elements. And, the way drag and drop works… I just love it. For us, Avada really has too much to offer 🙂
Now, there are few people out there criticizing avada and suggesting that you should avoid using it. For a sane person, it is quite clear that if this theme was not developed properly and does not meet industry standards, how on earth it can become the #1 selling wordpress theme on envato marketplace? There’s a reason why CEO of envato wrote such encouraging review about this product. I think these haters should reconsider what they’re upto.
Everything sounds good? If you’re thinking of developing your next wordpress website, GO GET IT. I bet you won’t regret this decision.
