What Type of Theme is Right For Your Business
No matter what type of business you have, you need an online presence.
And that online presence requires a website.
But picking a theme for your site can become overwhelming. There are so many free and paid themes to choose from, it can be difficult to decide which is best for your business. Here are some tips that will help you pick the best WordPress theme for your business and your needs.
Before looking at actual themes, you must first understand your own needs.
Start by thinking about:
The look you want.
What you do want your site to look like? Are you looking for something clean? Modern? Feminine or masculine? Maybe you want a technology feel to it? While WordPress themes have some flexibility that allows you to customize your site, starting off with something close to what you want can really give you a good foundation.
Features you need.
What do you want for your website? If you’re not quite sure, take a look at other websites and see what you like and don’t like. The sites you look at don’t necessarily have to be in your own industry. You’re just looking for elements that you like. Consider features like home page set up, side bar set up, shopping cart, and appointment booking features.
Flexibility you require.
How flexible do you need your site to be? Will you need something that you can change easily on your own? Or maybe your site will be something pretty static?
Now what about ready-made themes like our Divi Child Themes?
Child themes are affordable premade websites. They are ready to install and can be used right “out of the box.”
So when are they the right option for you?
Well they might be perfect for your business if:
You are on a budget.
If you don’t have the time or money to spend customizing a theme with a developer, a ready-made child theme could be your answer.
You really like the look of a theme.
If you’ve found a theme that fits your features criteria, go ahead and pick the child theme. Remember, you can still make some customizations if you need to.
You won’t need to continually tweak the site.
If your website will, for the most part, remain the same, a beautiful child theme can easily fit your theme needs. However, if you think you might need to scale and continue tweaking as your business grows, a ready-made theme might not work for your needs.
There are so many themes out there, and they all can be customized. So the possibilities can be endless. Knowing exactly what you want in a website will help you pick the best theme for your business.
