Brainstorm Force vs Themeforest  💥
BRAINSTORM FORCE (Brainstorm Force vs Themeforest)
Brainstorm Force is the builder of the famous Astra Theme...
The name Brainstorm Force may not appeal to everyone, but it is the company behind the Astra Theme. The company was founded in 2009, but the first product to hit the market in 2013 was their Schema Plugin. I will discuss their top products here one by one.
Brainstorm Force review: Rating
But before we start with the products, let's check what users think of the Brainstorm Force products. The best way to do this is to check the company on an independent rating website like Trustpilot (see photo below). The score couldn't be much better I would say, so we are dealing with top web design products here and the company gives a very good service and is reliable.
The Astra Theme
Their most famous product is by far the Astra Theme which appears on more than 1 million websites is installed. The theme excels in loading speed, but despite being quite minimalistic and fast, it still has beautiful functions. It is not for nothing that the theme has a very high rating and has been installed on so many sites. In addition, the theme is extremely suitable for building shops and offers so-called starter sites for all elite page builders. Astra makes a great combination with the Elementor page builder.
Brainstorm Force: Starter Templates
Brainstorm Force offers a fantastic package of 180+ Starter Sites for a small additional cost. These are beautifully styled demos that can be installed with 1 click. There are demos for all niches and practically all known page builders. This is a great collection and a must for professional web designers to save tons of time. Read more about the Starter Templates here.
Brainstorm Force: Schema Pro
Schema Pro was Brainstorm Force's first product in 2013. Schema Pro was so popular with the public that the product allowed the company to become known on its own. Schema Pro gives all your pages and posts Rich Snippets on autopilot so that you are better found in Google and also promoted more by Google. Google loves rich snippets! Schema Pro still ranks as the top plugin for rich snippets today. Read more about Schema Pro here.
Brainstorm Force: Convert Pro
In this Brainstorm Force review we should definitely also talk about Convert Pro. This plugin is also the best of its kind. If you are looking for more conversion and/or subscribers, this plugin is just for you. Get instant calls to action anywhere on your site in the form of popups, forms, and info bars.

Brainstorm Force: WP Portfolio
The Brainstorm Forece Portfolio plugin is again the cream of the crop in its class. It seems like everything this company produces reaches the top. The plugin comes with dozens of demos that you can import into your website, but also with complete demo websites for dozens of niches. The choice is yours. Read more about WP Portfolio here.
Brainstorm Force Review: Conclusion
This is my closing opinion of this Brainstorm Force Review. You will have already felt my enthusiasm while reading it. Each of these 7 plugins is great, without exception. They are all for sale separately, but I think that would be unwise. Brainstorm Force offers very affordable packages where all or some of these plugins come bundled at very attractive prices.
THEMEFOREST (Brainstorm Force vs Themeforest)
Themeforest is a marketplace for Wordpress Themes...
First of all, I want to say that very good themes are sold on Themeforest. Despite that, the marketplace itself is a big minus and it's rated so low it's hard to believe. See below how the marketplace only scores 1.58 out of 5 on Sitejabber. Again, the themes themselves are not to blame for this, in fact I think that the theme builders who sell via Themeforest are also dissatisfied. You can read how Themeforest built this reputation in my Themeforest Cheats article.
I already mentioned it above, great themes are sold on Themeforest. I myself have been a customer for more than 10 years and have certainly bought more than 100 themes in my career as a web designer. The Themeforest marketplace is so powerful that many theme builders are completely squeezed and earn very little from the sale of their theme, which is a shame. A much better way for them would be to market their themes through their own site and work with affiliates who promote their site and send people there who want to buy themes. If they pay affiliates 60% they are still better off. In the affiliate world, 50% or more is great.
THE BEST THEMES ON THEMEFOREST
These are the 6 best-selling themes of the moment with the highlight being the Avada Theme. Follow the link to read the full review. Avada is often mistakenly (just like here lol) compared to Divi. Listen, Avada is a great theme but comparing it to Divi goes a long way. For starters, Divi is a membership with 86+ premium themes in it, premium plugins, image library and of course the awesome Divibuilder. Avada is only a theme with its own page builder that has no fame.
As a top-selling theme, Avada from Themeforest will receive a special deal, I assume, and it will not be as heavy as other themes. Still, I think they could do better on their own. Much of the hatred that Themeforest causes also ends up on Avada, which is bad for the reputation of the theme. For example, they are obliged to charge extortionate prices for support. They also cannot offer their theme in combination with other products, they have to sell a separate license for each website that someone has. That can all be done much better.
The Flatsome Theme has come to 2nd place in the numbers for best-selling themes via Themeforest last year. The builders have worked hard on it and the theme is really perfect for building web shops, especially on Themeforest there is no competitor in that regard. Other laws apply outside Themeforest and there are certainly themes such as Divi discussed above and, for example, WP-Astra that take it one step further.
It's impossible for me to review all their themes here so if you're interested, I recommend this page with their best-selling themes.
ENVATO & THEMEFOREST
Themeforest is part of the umbrella Envato and is for Themes only. If you follow the link you will read in my article why it is a bit of a nasty business for everyone involved, for authors, buyers and affiliates. For plugins, videos and more they have other platforms that I will not go into here since we are talking about Themeforest here.
THEMEFOREST REVIEW: PRICING
Theme prices on Themeforest start as low as $19 for themes that want to make a name quickly, the most expensive theme I know is Kallyas with $69. Most are between $49-60. With this marketplace, always remember that each website of yours must have its own license. If you buy such a theme, it can only be used on 1 site.
THEMEFOREST REVIEW: CONCLUSION
A lot of very good themes are sold on Themeforest. I also buy this myself. Don't expect refunds or great support. The support for the themes themselves is in the hands of the theme builders and can simply be called fine. I want to warn affiliate marketers right off the bat that no matter how many articles you write related to this marketplace, you're never going to make much money from it.
Brainstorm Force vs Themeforest Conclusion
You have come to the end of my Brainstorm Force vs Themeforest comparison. The ratings of these 2 companies are at odds with each other. It is best to do business with Brainstorm Force, although I also buy themes on Themeforest myself if necessary, the themes themselves are very good. However, the Astra Theme and certainly the complete package that Brainstorm Force offers, surpasses any theme on Themeforest. The unlimited usage policy of Brainstorm Force is of course 10x better than having to buy a separate license for each site that one has, as is the case on Themeforest.
