Tips and Benefits of Predesigned WordPress Themes


Startups and small businesses still in the developing mode may not be able to have customized website designed because of the high cost and constant involvement required of a designer. WordPress themes are a great solution for creating a website. You get the great free options, but they are not updated often and there are no instructions or assistance for their installation.



There are times when free WordPress themes make sense and times where a customized theme is needed. Many small businesses recognize the value of a predesigned WordPress theme.

The Benefits of a Predesigned WordPress Theme

Quality

Some free WordPress themes have been coded well, but the majority are not. Bad coding can cause issues in website creation, modification, and user access. With a predesigned theme, you will have a readable and understandable code that enables you to add or edit features easily in the future.

Security

It is necessary to have a secure website because of the risk of getting hacked. A predesigned WordPress theme is much more secure than the free ones available. It is because the former theme developers built a compatible program with the most recent WordPress versions. They even take the time to update themes they predesigned to keep ahead in security.

F free themes have regular updates, and even if they do, users are often not aware if the developer has even updated. There’s no security guarantee with a free theme.

Affordability

Small business can certainly afford a predesigned WordPress theme. Since the developer sells this same theme to many people, the cost spent in designing the website gets divided among all the users. For customized website building, the developer has to start from scratch. You will be the sole person buying this theme. Thus, the cost is more because it is one-time creation.

Easy to install

The design is created to be ready-to-use. Predesigned WordPress theme developers offer detailed information about how to install the program so that in just a day, your website will be up and ready to go live.

Flexibility

A predesigned WordPress theme supports different users as they are created to be extremely flexible.  That means that you get variety of features and layout options. An e-store or blog can easily be added to your website.

Future Support

A single predesigned theme is used by multiple people, so if a question arises from multiple users, it will be addressed by the designer. That way, the users will be supported with installation and configuration as well as any troubleshooting issues with the purchased theme. General customization will not be provided. The developer will also make updates to the theme code if necessary for future versions and security.

Tips to Consider While Choosing a WordPress theme

  • While selecting a theme, make sure that 80% of the layout and text spaces will be filled.
  • WordPress themes for blogs and websites differ, so determine your purpose and make a search for that specific theme type.
  • The new theme must be compatible with basic WordPress functions.
  • Never assume the potential theme has multiple layouts. Review the theme demo and description to ensure that it has a layout that supports your content.
  • Is the theme SEO friendly?
  • Is there a feature for a call to action?
  • What level of support does the web developer offer?
  • Is the theme easy to use?

Make sure to review all the above questions and then choose an ideal WordPress theme for your website.
