Why to Use Premium WordPress Theme – 5 Good Reasons
Why to Use Premium Wordpress Theme – 5 Good Reasons. Here I will explain some benefits of premium themes and why to use a premium wordpress theme.
I have already discussed about Premium WordPress Theme VS Free WordPress theme. Just to recall back the summary, free WordPress themes are good during the initial Blogging period. Once the blog starts getting traffic and gets successful, it is time to switch to any good premium WordPress theme.
Here I will explain some benefits of premium themes and why to use premium wordpress theme.
Why to Use Premium WordPress Theme
Regular Update and Support
Any WordPress theme or Plugin must be compatible with the latest version of WordPress. Premium theme developers release regular update so that their themes and plugins are compatible with the latest WordPress version. If there is any mismatch between your theme and the latest WordPress software version, then chances are that you will have a broken theme and plugins which might break down your blog. Whenever you buy any premium WordPress theme or even use a free theme, make sure they release updates regularly.
Another good reason to use premium themes is support. All websites selling premium themes have a members area and a forum to discuss issues, problems and solutions. Good support will be very handy and useful for non-techie people who do not want to create a mess out of faulty coding or custom CSS. You just have to explore their forum area and you will surely find an answer or solution to your question or problem. In case you don’t find a satisfying answer or solution to your question in the forum, you can mail them your question and they get back to you in 24 hours with the best possible solution.
Almost all premium theme sellers offer about 30 day’s money back guarantee. If you are not satisfied with a theme then you can either replace it with another theme or get your money back. I have got my money back several times. Do they really return back the money? Yes, they really return back the money, very politely. The best part is that you still have the already bought and downloaded premium theme even after getting back the refund. I personally have several of them.
Theme Custom Options Panel
All premium themes have a panel with options to change the design and layout of your blog. Most of them offer drag and drop feature. There is no need of any coding. Not eve a single line of coding. With few clicks, you can change layout, sidebars, widgets, styling, font, colour, header image, add or remove sliders, menu options, footer options etc.
Search Engine Optimization
All premium themes are SEO optimized. You don’t have to worry if your blog will rank high in search engine result pages or not. You just have to follow some of the basic guidelines. That’s all. The theme that you see on this blog is custom designed by me with the help of one of my friend. It is has an SEO optimized framework and uses minimum plugins to increase loading time. Quality content combined with SEO can skyrocket your blog. Some good SEO optimized premium themes are Themify, Elegant themes, Themes Kingdom and Genesis.
Design and Layout
Good framework, elegant professional looks and customizable layout are features to look for in any premium theme. Most premium themes offer all these features. You can select the skin colour, font size, type and colour, link colour, sidebar and widget selection and almost everything that any Blogger might need to adjust his or her blog to their own needs. These options are rarely available in free themes.
All free WordPress themes have encrypted footer links linking back to the website or blog of the theme developer. Some of then even provide paid links at the footer. This is bad for SEO. Sometimes they even have hidden codes that you can’t imagine even in your wildest dream. Some of them even hide malicious codes in the footer. They will ask you to buy the pro version of the theme just to remove the footer link. If you dare to remove the footer link on your own, be prepared for crash landing of your blog.
This is not the case with premium themes. You can always be assured that there will not be any hidden code encrypted in the footer. You can add your own HTML, link or text to the footer. This is a good reason to trust a theme.
