So you’ve started your journey into the wonderful world of WordPress, and maybe you’re wondering “What’s next?”
The beauty of the full WordPress platform is the infinite possibilities for customization and designing a professional website without having to be an expert web developer, thanks to the power of premium WordPress themes and templates.
However, with literally thousands of themes to choose from, it can be quite overwhelming.
You’re probably asking yourself:
“What’s the BEST WordPress theme for MY website?”
Lucky for you, I’ve been professionally developing WordPress websites and blogs for YEARS and have purchased and tested pretty much all the most popular WordPress themes and templates out there.
Purchasing and installing a premium WordPress theme or template is the FIRST thing I do on any new WordPress installation because the theme controls the overall design of your website and makes by far the biggest difference in any website.
One important note is that the themes I’m about to share with you are actually more than just themes, they’re actually considered “Frameworks”.
Question: What is a “Framework”?
Answer: A framework differs from a theme in the sense that it changes how you are able to edit your website. Many of these frameworks allow you to edit your website VISUALLY through Drag-and-Drop. (Yes!)
For ANYONE who’s tried customizing a free theme, you KNOW that WordPress is not drag-and-drop. By default, WordPress is a BLOGGING platform so it isn’t tailored for creating business websites with fancy homepages and multiple featured sections, images, sliders, etc.
With all that being said, it’s time for me to share with you the absolute BEST WordPress themes and frameworks for your new website.
OptimizePress – Best for Marketers! Drag and Drop
OptimizePress is one of my personal favorites, and is an all-around great choice for someone who wants a Drag and Drop visual page builder (like Divi 3.0) but is more focused on internet marketing and selling products or services.
OptimizePress is absolutely made for internet marketers in mind, with a TON of included templates for beautiful Landing Pages, Opt-in and Squeeze pages, Webinar signups, Online Courses, Membership Websites, and much more.
The beauty of OptimizePress is its no-fuss visual page builder that allows you to easily create any website you can think of.
Like Divi 3.0, OptimizePress has a list of “elements” such as buttons, images with text, video player, featured section, image slideshow, and much more. You can incorporate any of these elements to your web pages and customize them as well by changing the fonts and colors of the text, background, and more.
If you do ANYTHING with online business or internet marketing, go ahead and click that button below to get started!
That wraps up our top WordPress themes and templates!
I hope you found this information useful, and I’m confident that if you decide to upgrade to one of these premium themes, then editing and designing your WordPress website is going to be a LOT easier and more intuitive.
