WordPress is an awesome solution for a business website. It’s one of the most flexible and affordable options available for companies looking for a dynamic web presence. WordPress is the most popular content management system used today. It’s the platform of choice for over 58% of websites using content management systems. One of the biggest perks of using WordPress is the number of themes available, both free and premium. This huge selection of themes can be both good and bad. It’s good in terms of variety, but bad in that it can be an absolute nightmare finding that perfect theme for your business. So what the heck is a business owner to do? Here are some features that business owners should look for in their quest for the perfect WordPress theme.

Responsiveness

Having a website that can adapt to any device is crucial. You want your business website to look awesome no matter what device is being used to view it.

SEO (Search Engine Optimization) Friendly

A great website theme is developed and updated with current web standards to ensure maximum search engine optimization. If you need advanced SEO solutions, there are tons of plugins available.

Flexibility

The theme you choose needs to be flexible. Does it allow you the ability to customize it to fit your business needs? Does the theme have the ability to adapt as your business model changes? You want a theme that allows you to add new features as needed.

Is there a live demo available?

Themes that have a live demo allow prospective users to test the waters, so to speak. You get to see how it really looks in action. Is it compatible with all browsers? Is it user-friendly? How is the loading time?
