Top 5 Selling StudioPress Themes – November

November was an exciting month for StudioPress affiliates. Sales for StudioPress themes skyrocketed during our Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale, with more new themes sold than any other month this year.

Our top affiliate made $7,788.15 in commissions last month, just for promoting the Genesis framework and our themes. (are you a StudioPress affiliate yet?)

While I can’t tell you what the affiliate sold, I can tell you the 5 most popular Genesis Framework child themes currently available on StudioPress… They are:

5. Magazine

Marketplace Mention:

Driskill jumped to the front of the Genesis Child Theme Marketplace pack this month and nearly clenched a Top 5 spot. Elle came in a close second for the Marketplace.

So… Were these the themes you expected? Have a favorite that should be in the Top 5?

Tell us what you think in the comments!


  1. Nice, I think we’ll see the new ‘Generate’ theme up there after release.

  2. News is my favorite theme. The space is exploited in an excellent way. You can stuff it with any content you like and still get the feeling that all is perfectly readable and navigable.

  3. Agentpress is my favourite till you make it better one

  4. Interesting to see the preference for standard post format themes for content sites instead of one like Tapestry. You should also include a “Dud of the Month” for last place 😉

    • LOL, Oh My – No! Although a bit funny on the surface how horrible that would be for that theme and it’s developers… I much prefer the positive side of things 😉

      • Jessica Commins :

        I’m with Kerry. It’s kind of funny to think about, but I couldn’t do it.

        I wouldn’t even know how to pick a dud anyway… I love something about every one of our themes. :)

  5. i like news child design and magazine theme also.
    can you please update upcoming theme release from your team?

  6. I love the news theme as well. However, I don’t get how it’s ‘prepared’ for video? In what way is it better handling video than any other Studiopress theme?

    • Jessica Commins :

      In my opinion, the News design frames video in a way that demands focus. All our themes can handle video, but some designs are better suited to accommodate massive amounts of content, whether text or video. News is definitely one of them.

  7. I like AgentPress, thanks.

  8. I’m also one of the many people who love the News 2.0 theme. When that one came out, we just had to ditch our so outdated about 3 year old Revolution Pro Media theme!

    We’re not that good in designing though to really customize it well -_-

    • Jessica Commins :

      That looks great, Kevin! I love your color scheme. Excellent organization, lots of interesting content… Well done!

  9. Hi Jessica
    I’m an affiliate already and would like to put out a post similar to the one you have written here.
    How much of this post would be appropriate to use?

    And, when is the new Agency theme due for release?

    Sorry final question / request.
    In the UK we don’t have Black Friday, we look to buy things at Christmas and for bargains in the New Year.

    Any chance Studiopress / Genesis will be offering discounts for Christmas and the New Year?

    Many thanks

  10. Hi Jessica
    Just adding to my original comment, I notice that Woo themes are doing a…

    “WooCommerce Xmas Bundle”

    Be great if Genesis did a similar Christmas bundle.

  11. While these are all great looking themes, Prose was the one that took me by surprise! I am still relatively new to blogging, but I have been dealing with HTML/CSS for years and Prose is such a delight to work with!

    The new design is in the works and has a long way to come yet, but you get the idea ^_^
