Wordpress Business Themes

The best WordPress themes for your business should do the following;

  1. The theme should create pages that effectively work well as landing pages
  2. Should drive customers to interact with your company.
  3. Well designed websites can reduce your bounce rate and increase your revenue.

The final theme you choose should have the following attributes;Widgets on the right, or the option to put them there.
You want your call to action to be on the right of the page. You want your best, most customisable, content to be in the middle or the left. This is because you want the sales proposition to be the first thing that the user sees. When they use Google to search for your product you want them to see that first. Their eye will naturally track to the right, where you put your call to action button. This should says something like “buy now!” or “try me”.

Menu bar across the top.
Some themes allow a menu on the left of the page. Again you want this area to be reserved for your sales copy. Also you want to maximise the space in the middle for pictures and text.

Two Column Layout
Again this is because you want the left and central part of the theme to have the largest space to fill with sales copy and images.

Space for your logo in the top left hand corner.
The top left hand corner of the page is prime real estate. You want customers to know they have landed on your page the second they get there. This projects confidence.

Background colour of the body is white.
This is for readability. Large areas of text that are white on black, or rather light text on a dark background are harder to read. It also makes it difficult to use any other colours in your body if the background is not white. Also a white background gives you the widest possible range of call to action colours.

Stretchable side areas (outside of the body)
Some themes have a right hand side justified theme, or one that is fixed width. This can make it difficult to read your website on the hundreds of other screen sizes and browsers available. Either you need to find ones that are 800px across with stretchable side areas, or one that fills the whole page.

CSS menu (not images)
This is for SEO purposes. Make sure that you can highlight all the text on your webpage, otherwise it makes it difficult for search engines to read your website. Most wordpress themes have this function, but don’t be tempted to change the theme to include images as menu buttons.

The best WordPress themes are also customisable and have features in the administration section that allow you to easily add CSS or Google Anlytics.
