You found a domain name or maybe you are still thinking about it, but you came across another hurdle: choosing the right WordPress theme. The answer for the question “what WordPress theme should I choose?” is: “it depends”.
It depends on what?
First of all, it depends on the scope of your website. Why do you want to build it?
- for a digital business card (presentation website) 💼
- I need leads for my offline business 📞
- to sell online products and services 🛒
- because I would like to create a blog 🖋
Second of all, do you want to use the theme for building just one or more websites?
5. Avada 💼📞
An excellent theme for those who just started with WordPress and want to use it on only one website. It has a good price-quality ratio. I do not recommend something cheaper than Avada, because most of the vital functions of a website from 2020 will not be there. The theme is perfect for those who want to build a presentation website or an ecommerce.
4. Themify Ultra 💼🛒
This theme was actually the first that I used. Like Avada, Themify Ultra is suited for beginners who want to build a presentation website or an online store. The price is a little bit higher than Avada, but it offers some more functions. If you want to learn how to use this theme, I highly recommend this YouTube channel: Hogan Chua.
3. Elementor 🛒📞
A theme with a drag-and-drop builder, that is very easy to use. Luckily, there is a free version, but it lacks some functions that are vital for all websites. However, for those who would like to build a professional website, the theme has an annual subscription that continues the updates. I think that this theme is not suited for those who want just a presentation website. Of course you can use this theme for a professional presentation website, but you can simply do it with a much cheaper theme like Avada or Themify.
2. Divi 💼🛒📞
A builder theme with drag-and-drop functionalities, that I actually bought. Firstly, I bought the theme for one year, to see if I like it. Next year, I waited for the Black Friday reduction and I bought it for life, for an unlimited number of websites and I paid just half the price. I recommend this theme for those that want to build a professional website and maybe make even more websites with it. The theme is suited for premium presentation websites, ecommerce stores and lead collectors.
1. Extra 💼🛒📞🖋
The theme of this website is actually Extra! It comes together with Divi and other plugins from Elegnatthemes when you buy the annual or life package. The theme itself was designed for professional blogs. It is full of templates and layouts that you can use for publishing articles very easily. On the other side, the product and category pages form Extra look better than those from Divi. If you ask me, Extra is good for everything: premium presentation websites, online stores, lead collectors and blogs.
However, we are talking about WordPress themes. Thereby, an online store with few products (a few hundreds) is perfect for this platform. If you want to use it for an online store with many products (more than 1000), then should change the platform. WordPress, as a platform, was designed for blogs and presentation websites. The shop function was added in time.
