7 Free WordPress Themes for Your Solo Business

7 Free WordPress Themes for Your Business

Does your blog need a makeover?

The best place to start is with a great WordPress theme. But with so many options, it can be hard to know where to even begin. We can help with that! A few questions we keep in mind while selecting a theme:

  • Is this mobile responsive? Having a website that looks great on a phone or tablet is more important than ever as many people use their mobile devices to browse the internet. A theme that is mobile responsive resizes images and reformats menus to fit the mobile screen.
  • Does this have theme have the right look and feel? While you can change a lot about a theme with code, it's best to start with one that is close to what you'd like to end up with anyway. Even if you change all of the colors and upload a custom header, making sure the theme is easy to navigate and makes sense with the feel of your brand will save you time (and money, if you've got someone helping you get it setup).
  • Does this allow me to do everything I want to do? This will vary from blog to blog, but if you'll want to sell products, you'll need a theme that is e-commerce ready. If you enjoy using certain widgets or plug-ins, you'll want to make sure your new theme supports them. Do your homework!

If your blog or business is going for a chic and feminine look and you want a theme that boasts great features, well, we've got you covered with some free (that's right -- free!) themes that might just do the trick.
