A good WordPress theme is critical to your success!
Here are a couple of really good tips to take in prior to deciding on what theme your should look for and why.
- What is the purpose of your blog? There are several themes that can work for you out of the box (even free themes), however keep in mind that a free theme maybe a little difficult to do all of the things you want. Also Free does not always mean easy either.
- Who is your audience? Are they on mobile phones? Is this for your physical store?
Most of these are factors in choosing a couple of good themes.
I can tell you I have used several focus on simplicity.. WordPress has really good out of the box themes – take advantage of them.
Also I use WooThemes for ecommerce and also some themes from them. Overall, you can’t go wrong wit Woothemes and their eCommerce plugin is running 29% of all online shopping stores.
This concludes your three steps – make sure to experiment in off hours with WordPress. There are several videos on YouTube etc. that will help you along the way.
