As a business owner, I have been using Envato Market for over 7 years. It provides marketing products, offering millions of creative elements for purchase that you can customize and use for promotion of your business. If you haven't heard of Envato Market and you're interested in upping your visual content game, buckle your seatbelts and let's take a tour!
Website Themes and Templates
Envato has close to 50,000 website templates and themes offered by a number of independent designers and developers. While WordPress themes are the most abundant, you can also find themes for:
E-commerce sites such as Shopify, WooCommerce, Ubercart and Zen Cart
CMS sites like HubSpot, Weebly and more
HTML website templates
You can also find plugins, landing pages, email templates and more.
Industries include general business, marketing, real estate, construction, photography, art, portfolio, beauty, cosmetics, fashion, printing company, book store, furniture store and so many more! All you have to do is use the Search bar to find what you are looking for.
If you don't have experience uploading and editing themes into WordPress and you have no interest in learning this skill, you have a few options:
Check with your website hosting company to find out if they offer this service. You will want to find out if they also offer the customization of your site if you do not want to take on this task. Expect to pay a fee for this service.
Shop for your template and hire an independent web developer to set up and customize your site. If you do not know a web developer, you can use a professional service like Upwork to find the person you would like to work on for this project.
This is an easy way for you to have a hand in the design or redesign of your website and help you visualize how your website will look.
Here's a marketing idea you'll love: create a slideshows, promo video, video opener, logo sting and/or social media videos with premade templates. You will need to have experience with a video editing program in order to customize your video. The programs include Adobe After Effects, Premiere Pro, DaVinci Resolve and Apple Motion.
Envato Market also offers stock videos to use with your projects, such as promo videos or use on your website.
One thing to note here is that the images, videos and audio shown in the previews are typically not included. You will be placing your own images, video or audio into the project. Check the item description to see what is included and required programs to edit the templates.
Here is a sample video opener by kalimanstudio called Dynamic Stomp Opener:
Again, if you do not have experience, or the time to edit videos, you can hire a video editor (Upwork can also connect you to professional video editors) or I can assist with Adobe products such as After Effects and Premiere Pro.
Having the right audio for your project can really enhance the experience. Whether you are adding music clips or sound effects to your video openers, social media stories or reels, logo unveilings or website, check out the unique music offered in the Envato Market. They have everything from cinematic, classical, urban, children, holiday and seasonal, funk, folk, ethnically inspired music from around the globe and more.
Graphics and Photos
This category is too large to describe everything available but here is an idea of the products available:
Graphics: product mock-ups, backgrounds/wallpaper, illustrations, photo templates, scene makers and more.
Print graphics: flyers, brochures, stationary, business cards, invitations, signage, menus, magazines and more.
Web elements: Social media templates, banners, badges, e-newsletters, sliders, buttons, forms, navigation bars and more.
Add-ons: Photoshop, Lightroom presets, Aperture Presets, Skethc plugins and more.
Vector art: conceptual, characters, decorative, web elements, tattoos and more.
Presentations: PowerPoint, Keynote Templates and Google Slides.
Icons: objects, business, web, media, tech, characters, seasonal, software and more.

Note: As someone who spends a lot of time researching, writing, reading, testing products / services and compiling information, you will see links to the products and services I feel comfortable recommending. If you choose to subscribe or purchase a product from the link provided, sometimes I may receive a revenue share from that activity. It is a small exchange for the time I spend vetting out products and services and providing resources.
