Themes are one of the “killer” features of using WordPress to power your website. Unlike drag and drop website builders, you start with a defined, beautiful template with built-in features. While some themes come with feature over-kill (or a blank slate), there is a whole universe of themes customized for every type of business imaginable.
In fact, there are hundreds and hundreds of “off-the-shelf” WordPress themes for small, local businesses that have stunning design and amazing functionality like beautiful galleries to display your services and products, map features, search functions and more.
And, even better, WordPress themes are (supposed to be) open-source & GPL licensed so you gain access to a wide community of resources and help…which means you’ll never be left high and dry by a design firm. Some require a learning curve, and some are super-simple, but all have the versatility for a local small business that wants an active online presence.
