We want to help you put your product or service in the best possible light so we gave you lots of options to customize the style of your WP-Soft-Sell site. Choose fonts, text sizes, and colors all in one easy-to-use admin page.

WP-Soft-Sell uses page templates to allow you to create an unlimited number of sales pages on your site, each with their own set of Features, Products, Testimonials, and Examples. The page edit screen walks you through the simple process each time, making it simple. Test different landing pages and see which one works best.

Last year, I moved a theme I was selling off of my main site and onto its own domain. The template was doing well but it needed its own home. I’m a WordPress theme developer so making a custom theme was not too hard. That said, I wanted it up as quickly as possible and coding pages from scratch, regardless of how simple, is time-consuming.
Using the ubiquitous “sales page” style as a template, I created a front page listing the features and available product types for sale. I also created a documentation section to help people find what they needed and allow comments from current users. Things were selling fairly well but I knew I could do better.
So I added more features, added examples, moved the content around, and made a place for testimonials. Once these things were in place, I noticed a significant jump in sales of my theme. I had just the right combination of information and sales material!
The thing is, unless you’re skilled in HTML and CSS, putting together a nice, clean-looking sales page like this (rather than a waterfall of poorly-formatted text) is almost impossible. On top of that, even if you know your stuff, adding and removing information can be very time-consuming.
That’s where WordPress comes in.
I took the sales page format from my original template and broke it out into pieces: introduction, features, products, more information (what you’re reading now), testimonials, and examples. Then, I used core WordPress functionality to make adding and removing these pieces very simple. What you’re left with is a battle-tested sales page template that actually performs!
I use this template to sell this theme and everything else that I put on online. But it’s not just for digital goods, you can also use this template for lead generation by linking the products to the built-in contact page. You can also use it to give away software, ebooks, or anything else that can be downloaded. Manage everything in WordPress and use the template to create as many different pages as you need!
This is the first version of the template so I’m open to feature requests and additional functionality that can help you. If you’ve got a question about what this template can do, click the contact link below and fire away!
Thanks in advance…

This site isn't technically built using this template but it was the inspiration and will be once we get around to it. It took at least 20 times longer to built the site above in a custom template rather than with WP-Soft-Sell. See this example »
