There is so much variety when it comes to WordPress themes. Picking one to use for your business can turn into a very hard decision. Especially when there are lots available for free but also so many paid options out there.
When I was searching for a WordPress theme for my business (before I decided to start building my own sites!). I investigated lots and although there is a good amount of free themes out there, I would either recommend investing in a premium theme or using the Kadence Theme which is free! Please note that often premium paid themes come with lots more features and customisation options.
3 Things to Consider When Picking a WordPress Theme
Always make sure that the WordPress theme you are thinking of using, will fit your business needs before committing to one.
Here are some important things to check:
Many theme developers have documentation freely available to check out. It is important to make sure it is really well documented and updated because this is the information that you will be referring to lots when creating and setting up your own site with the theme.
Does the theme developer have any tutorials available with the website (Check out our documentation page to view our tutorials)? If there are none available make sure there is good access to documentation.
Read reviews about what others have to say, do a search on Facebook or ask in business Facebook groups. Getting reviews from others that have actually used the theme is a great way to get a feel for customer service and any assistance with troubleshooting.
Two themes that I have used and have had a great experience with and have thorough documentation are Kadence Theme & GeneratePress. They both get really good reviews everywhere I have searched. The great thing about these two themes is that you can use them for free on your WordPress site.
I actually enjoyed using the Kadence Theme so much that I created my own Kadence Child Themes to sell in my shop. I know that creating a beautifully set out website is not everyone’s cup of tea and can be a really time consuming task. This is why you can preview all Kadence Child Themes to see exaclty what the setup will be I have documentation and tutorials on how to install and update it so that you can edit them to match your business branding. You can even arrange to have me install the theme for you if that all gets to hard!
