Most of the time, the first contact a customer will have with your business is through your website. Consequently, the website could make or break your business. To ensure that the website makes it, having it be both aesthetically pleasing and user friendly is imperative.
Look for five main features in a corporate WordPress theme before purchasing it: responsive design, colorization capabilities, browser compatibility, an advanced options panel, and support.
First, a responsive design will allow your users to view the website from any device (smartphone, tablet, laptop, etc). Colorization capabilities free you to select any colors you like for the website. This is important because you want to match your brand’s colors. Hence, choose only a WordPress theme that offers unlimited colors. The theme should be supported by most internet browsers, including Firefox, internet Explorer, Safari, Opera and Chrome. Nowadays, many theme developers sell their themes with an advanced options panel, which enables you to set a myriad of preferences without the hassle of learning code. Don’t go for a theme that doesn’t offer support into the future, including periodic updates and email support.
