Choosing a theme for your website could be a very tricky job. I have to admitI was faced with the same issue once. But the key to making the entire process easy is to follow a couple of steps.Some people might disagree with them but on average it is something that I find many people nodding to.
First of all, a theme has to be built for your requirement whether it is e-commerce or just a website for your business or even one that is a personal blog. Themes are indispensable if your budget is not much and if you require a great website with ample amount of support along the way.
There are hundreds of themes available online and many of them are free. Many of us often try to find ourselves a theme that is available for free thinking that it might help us with bringing our overall cost down. You may be right or are you?
Think again, themes are kept free for a reason. These themes may look attractive but many of them lack a lot of features which are a must for the smooth running of your website. When a developer gives away a theme for free you have got to keep in mind that it in almost all cases will have limitations. The intention is to get you to try out their basic version and then, later on, go for an upgrade to a premium one. Not just that, for any theme, updates are of utmost importance and can never be stressed enough. The digital world keeps evolving every single day and the software of today is rendered useless the very next day. Security is lost when we keep ourselves obsolete which opens the way for hackers and other nefarious cyber criminals.
So why put a lot at risk when you know that you can sleep peacefully by just spending a couple of bucks on a really good theme.
Now it is obvious that you will find themes that are of varying features and support. The best way to get a really good theme is to go online and find a reputed theme builder and check out the ratings on a particular theme. Themeforest.net, templatemonster.com etc. are some websites that give you access to a huge database of themes along with their reviews. Be careful to choose one with good support and that fits your budget. There are theme sites like www.wix.comand www.elegantthemes.comthat give really workable and customizable themes for those who want things to be really simple. The Genesis Framework by Studio Press is a really good option for nearly all your needs. Genesis themes have built a very strong reputation in the industry for quality.
That being said it is important to note that every theme has its own set of weaknesses. Some themes just stop becoming responsive when a certain number of plugins have been mounted on them. This is true even for the best themes in the industry. Keeping a limit on the plugins will go a long way in keeping a theme as quick as lightning.
