Should I Use a WordPress Theme for my Site Redesign? TREW Answers
November 3, 2015 Are you considering a redesign to improve your website’s effectiveness and modernize its look? Have you thought about your budget and your must-have requirements that will make your site the marketing and sales engine you’re aiming for? Anytime we embark on a web redesign for a TREW client, we consider the variables that affect the project’s size and scope. This includes business goals, branding and positioning needs, budget, and other key factors. These can guide us in determining if the site is a good candidate for a WordPress theme redesign or if it would be more suited to a fully custom redesign (which can also reside in the WordPress CMS). A WordPress “theme” is essentially a prebuilt website with a defined home page template and lower level page templates or elements that can be placed together to build simple lower level page templates. Premium WordPress themes are a fast way to a beautiful, impressive website. Usually within the $30 – $200 price range, these themes follow up-to-date design trends and are tested to work well in all browsers. WordPress themes allow you to get your new website up and running fairly quickly with some customization of colors, fonts, and content. Sounds great, right?
