3 Best Sites to Find Premium WordPress Themes
Whether you are an experienced web developer or just a guy (or girl) who wants to build a website, you need themes to help you out.
Because it is the best. According to www.builtwith.com there are nearly 4.5 million websites using WordPress and this number is growing. Using WordPress in comparison to other CMS (content managment systems) platforms means better themes, safer sites, less confusing admin panel, more developers available for advanced development. Out of the box WordPress is a great option for your new site…. but you want it to look great.
A better question to ask is why design from scratch. It is always in the best interest of your time to find a theme that will give you a visual and functional starting point. Most themes cost around $30 or less depending on the subscription service you sign up for. $30 is a small price to pay to save yourself hours of work. And yes… I use it, Higher Edge Web is using WordPress with the Elegant Themes’ Nova Theme.
