The quality of the design of your website is as important as the quality of the content and products you offer. The design of your website makes a big difference in the perceived value of your brand’s offerings. If your website is poorly designed, it will not only hurt your brand’s credibility but will also repel potential customers and users.

So, if you are serious about growing your business and care about your brand’s credibility, you need a beautifully designed, professional-looking website. But here’s the catch: Good Design Costs Good Money. And if you are just starting out or if this is the first time you are trying your hand in the online business game, I am sure you aren’t interested in spending thousands of bucks just to test the waters.

If you are using WordPress, which I assume you are if you are reading this article, you are in luck. There are thousands of free beautiful themes available for WordPress. A nicely designed theme will not only help you achieve a better conversion rate but will also help you build trust with your customers and audience.

While there are thousands of free themes available for WordPress, most of the themes, well, don’t offer much functionality or aren’t easy to customize. When looking for a theme for your WordPress website, here are a few things you should look for:

  • Responsive Design: Most of the people who will visit your website will be mobile users. And if your website isn’t optimized for mobile devices, guess what? you will lose all those prospective customers and subscribers. A good theme will offer a beautiful design that easily adapts to any screen size.
  • Minimal Design: The more distracting elements there are on your website, the less likely are your visitors to notice your offer (products/services) and buy what you are selling. If you run a blog and want people to actually read your content, it’s really important that you stick to a clean, minimal design.
  • Customization Options: If the theme doesn’t offer much (or any) customization options, you won’t be able to customize the design of your website to suit your branding needs. And if the design of your website doesn’t suit your brand, it really doesn’t matter how great it looks or how fast it loads up.
