I was speaking with someone today about WordPress themes and how they struggle to know what to pick when looking for a new theme. They said that every time they’ve purchased a WordPress Theme it is hard to know exactly how to set it up as they are all a little bit different.
WordPress Themes are everywhere and it can be very difficult to know whether the theme is good or not prior to purchasing – whether it’s something that will be easy to customize, easy to update, manage, and use. Especially if you’ve ever purchased from Theme Forest, you’ll know that reviews aren’t always accurate and you can’t always trust what people are saying there because of potentially falsified reviews. I’ve also spoken to people who have purchased a theme from Theme Forest, had a bad experience, and never had time to give it a bad rating – thus not preventing others from falling into the same problem.
So my question is, what do you find to be the hardest part about looking for a new WordPress Theme for your website? Is it just finding the right design? Are you fearful about how it will work? Are you just overwhelmed by the sheer number of themes available? Have you had a bad experience with a theme in the past? Let me know in the comments below and let’s have a discussion that will hopefully lead us all to a better way of shopping for WordPress themes in the future!
P.S. Before I go, I just want to describe one thing that we do here at Mint Plugins to try and alleviate some of those worries. Before you purchase, you are able to watch an in-depth installation video so you can see all of the things required for setup. You’ll also get an idea of how easy it is to customize our themes. Also, our Themes are mostly powered by free plugins we’ve created. You can download those plugins for free from our website and try them out for yourself before you purchase one of our designs built on those plugins. This way you can get a feel for how it works and decide if it’s right for you or not.
