Blocksy Theme Expands Free Starter Site Collection, Plans to Create New Suite of Blocks – WordPress Tavern

When Sergiu Radu and Andrei Glingeanu launched their free Blocksy theme nearly two years ago, they were surprised by how quickly their business grew during a global pandemic without any investment in marketing. Blocksy is now active on more than 20,000 WordPress sites and its commercial version, launched in October 2020, has grown to where both founders are now working full-time on the project.

Apart from inadvertently gaining a few mentions on some blogs and YouTube channels, Radu said his team has done nothing to market the theme. Users have most often been referred by word of mouth and many have gotten linked into the community through Blocksy’s Facebok group, which has grown to more than 2,200 members. Users join the group to discuss the theme and share their knowledge with each other.

Three months ago, Blocksy’s founders hired two more teammates to assist with support and manage the theme’s Facebook community. Radu said he thinks support has been the most important factor in the theme’s growth. His team offers support to free users as well as those those who opt to pay for Blocksy Pro. The ticketing system is open for everyone using the theme. This might explain why Blocksy has maintained a perfect 5-star rating on WordPress.org with 455 reviews.

Another factor in the theme’s success is its free starter sites that enable users to get going right away. In the past month, the Blocksy team has released three new starter sites, bringing the total to 10 (double the number available this time last year). Yogi, the latest release, is based on the block editor and was designed to showcase Blocksy’s capabilities for customizing and managing custom post types. These are registered with the help of WP Meta Box.
