How to Find a New WordPress Website Theme

Now that you have chosen your new website platform, how do you start moving forward with a new theme to start working with?

Start Searching!

That is the only way to really get moving. Start looking at themes, Google searches, etc. Every theme you look at will instantly give you a positive or negative reaction. It’s either a direction you do not want to go, or a direction you would consider. The idea is to gather 3-5 different themes that you like to start narrowing everything down to one. Keep in mind, you can always change a theme, and the cost is very little compared to developing your own custom theme from complete scratch.

Where do I start searching?

First of all, you’ll want to keep your eye out for a few friendly words in general when looking at themes:

  • Mobile Friendly/Mobile Optimized Design
  • Responsive (All Screen Sizes, including Tablets and Mobile)
  • Elementor Ready/Drag & Drop (Optional, however this is typically one of the most popular tools to edit pages)
  • ANYTHING can be hidden from a theme, images can be changed, colors can be changed, nothing has to stay the way that it is in a demo. We are just looking for a starting point for the new website.

So with that in mind, we typically start with a simple search here:

Click on the image or you can also Click Here!

Hundreds of results, tools to sort by date, price, popularity, etc…

Click on any theme to open it, you can even click on LIVE PREVIEW from there to really test it out.

Pay attention to your very initial feeling/reaction: “Do I like the looks of this?” From there, take a glance at the total number of sales, ratings, etc…

The higher the sales & ratings, the better!
With 75,000,000 WordPress websites, it is extremely doubtful that you’ll come across the same theme on another website. You want more sales & ratings on your new potential theme, because that means the company or developer who built the theme is actually supporting it. If there are any issues moving forward we now have an additional support line, and even more so if we are paying for their theme… And at $19-$49 for a theme? That is extremely cheap for additional support now on our side.

Now if we find something that we are starting to like, save a link to it. Start collecting half a dozen themes that you are starting to really like the thought of for your new website.

If you are having trouble finding something you like, try going to Google and search the following:

Responsive WordPress Themes

All you need to do is start collecting links to some themes that you like.

It doesn’t matter where on the internet that they are located. From there we will dive into each theme and decide what is best for you based on the requirements needed for your website. Please reach out if you have any questions!

How often should I write a blog post?

Until you cannot stand it! You can never have too much content. Having said that, you want to make sure that you are creating quality content. Many websites post daily, weekly, monthly, and some even only annually if that! Some content creators even post multiple times every single day. Think of the news media website. Can they really be creating too much content? Think about the search results that they are now potentially creating with all of these daily posts…

Writing content however is no quick task, some companies specifically hire people full time to write all of their content. Great content takes great time.

When it comes down to it, it is all up to the website owner and your goals with the website. It daily content is something you want to provide, then go for it! However if you have your own travel blog website and only post when you do great trips every so often, no problem at all! It is all up to you.

Please reach out to our team if you ever have any questions about writing content, we would love to hear from you.

Is My Website Old? Do I Need a New Website? How do I know?

The first question to ask yourself or your company is…

When did we last do anything to our website?

A few more questions to ask yourself include:

  • Is someone maintaining our website? The content? The software updates? The hosting environment?
  • Where is our website being hosted?
  • Who and what are we paying for our website?

Typically the web evolves at a rate where even after a couple years, your website can easily start to become outdated, especially if you have not updated any of the software. You are more open to hacks and issues moving forward, even if your website still looks good.

What The @#&$ is SEO ? Search Engine Optimization Explained

SEO stands for “Search Engine Optimization.” The process of fine tuning a website and getting more traffic from the free, organic, or natural search engine results on search engines.

SEO means scanning all areas of your website, every single page, every single post, every single product, and slightly modifying content specifically with search engines in mind, to target more visitors and customers. And moving forward, continuing to create content that is even more intended for the mind of a new customer… How would a brand new customer of yours think? What would they be thinking about when they start searching for a business like yours? What would they specifically be searching to find a product or service like yours? That is the exact mindset you and/or your content writer and web developer need to think moving forward.
