How To Find The Best WordPress Themes

If you have a blog or webpage, you want to get noticed.  It’s one of the keys to home business success.  I’ve discussed how to attract readers and keep them on your site and using YouTube to brand yourself in your pages.  But just as important is choosing a WordPress theme design for your site.  Specifically in my case, an eye-catching WordPress theme.

As I’ve discussed in the past, you have about 3-5 seconds to get the readers attention and keep them on your site.  Many web surfers have the attention span of a 3-year old, so you need to make an instant impression so they want to continue looking at the rest of the site.

To date, the most common question I have been asked on this site is, “Where did you get your theme?”.  I love getting asked that question because it tells me I’ve chosen something that generates enough interest to keep people around and want to look further.

So before I go any further…the wordpress theme I use is called “Business Corp”.  When I was first developing this blog, I wanted to choose a theme which related to the subject matter I was going to write about AND have a nice appearance.  Doing a Google search on ‘WordPress themes’ will give you plenty of results to choose from.  I ended up finding this theme on newwpthemes.com, and they have other great themes to choose from.

When you first start-up a blog or website, you need to envision what it is you want your site to look like.  Get a rough idea in your head, and then just start looking around until you find something that catches your eye.  But don’t stop there…keep looking.  You may find something even better.

Personally, I had narrowed it down to 4 or 5 themes before finally selecting this one.  And it came down to not only how it looked, but what features were included in the theme.  This particular one makes it very easy to insert affiliate ads in the right-side box, and adding items such as Google analytics or banners in the header or footer just as easy.  Terrific options and features, combined with plug-ins have helped make this site what it is.

Another theme site I had found during my search was this one, which has some very good themes as well.  But again, it just comes down to what you are looking for and how much you are willing to search for that one special theme.
