Why to prefer Premium WordPress themes over Free themes?
WordPress has evolved as a gigantic platform to create websites. It sounds pretty interesting that almost 11 million developers prefer WordPress to create website of their dreams.
What makes WordPress themes this much popular? You will get your answer here.
WordPress has come forth as a largest CMS platform for various purposes including blogging, web development and much more. It provides lots of functionalities and features to create anything of your choice.
Over the globe, the themes at WordPress are divided into two categories – FREE & PREMIUM. People with fresh startup often ask the reason to invest on premium source when they can have a free unpaid option available to them. It is obvious but not strategic.
With unpaid option, there come certain functionalities with lots of limitations. With premium option, flexibility and customization comes at the cost of money.
If you need a complete control over your website, you need premium WordPress theme. If you neither want to create a website for long strategic terms nor want to blow your money, Free plan is for you.
This is not just it.
Premium theme developers resolve every expected bug in an effective way which other developers may have left out.
There are many reasons to prefer Premium WordPress themes over free ones, out of which few are mentioned below.
1- The Ranking factor
Every website has a sheer desire to recognized by the search engines. Ranking on SERPs depends upon various factors and algos defined by the search engines.
The more factors a website follows, the more chances it grabs to get appeared on the front pages.
With WordPress, you do not have to worry about the ranking aspect as it is beautified with every important element to fulfil SEO responsibilities. WordPress is an amazing platform when it comes to search engine optimzation.
From sitemap submission to loading speed, navigation to user expereince, image optimization to coding standard – WordPress has covered every parameter to cater SEO needs.
Moreover, the free & premium plugins (Yoast SEO etc.) are delicious treats for those who purchase the premium themes. These plugins make it super easy to perform on-page & off-page SEO. Our personal favorite plugin is Yoast SEO which optimizes content through meta description, snippet optimization, meta keywords and much much more.
Free themes which are available in a gazillion amount over the web, are not optimized to rank. This is why the blogs or websites which are created over free themes take time & efforts to rank.
If you want your business or blog to appear at the top spot, you must grab your premium package right now.
2- Customer support & free updates – ALWAYS!
WordPress is constantly updating.
To make it more secure, one must need to update WordPress to the latest version.
WordPress has a large number of users and developers contributing to make it a massive platform. The paid themes at WordPress offers regular updates and professional customer support team to tackle the issues.
Free themes do not promise you to resolve every issue you may have while setting up. You need to hire the third party to make out the problem.
Extra expense, you see.
Premium theme troubleshoots issues with the help of its support forum which is available 24/7 to its customers. You are never alone with your premium themes, a professional team is always there to provide you the A-1 support. Submit your query to them and you get a reply back with the best possible solution. There are various themes available which offer free customer support for lifetime.
Also these themes come up with regular updates so the users do not have to care about upgrading the theme’s version.
3- Customization in hands
WordPress themes have this amazing feature of customizing elements to your choice. A great theme gives a complete hand to customzie its colors, fonts, images, slider – EVERYTHING easily.
Even beginners or non-coders are able to customize their themes like a pro.
WordPress has made customization flexible without bouncing into coding knowledge.
With free themes, there comes limited customization options. There comes no uniqueness by using these options because everyone would be using the same color patterns.
Uniqueness scores high which is why the color and fonts must be unique so they could grab attention even at first visit.
Premium themes allow you to do more than customization through playing with everything in the theme. From colors to images, you can play with every single element to make website entirely of your choice. You can personalize your theme as much as you want.
Also the link to developer is always there at the footer area if you are using free theme. Although it looks disturbing but you cannot make it disappear.
4- Extensive Documentation for every premium user
Premium themes comes along with detailed documentation to make the whole theme setting process easy. Also the video tutorials are there to provide a complete insight to how a theme works.
The developers at WordPress provide a detailed and descriptive documentation with paid themes as a MUST.
It includes explanation to every element, theme’s features in detail and instructions to set up the theme. The documentation actually works, without wasting time or accessing an expert to understand theme’s working.
It makes the whole working process easy to understand. Without struggling into functionalities, this material extensively explains you how to set up a website.
Free themes do not provide any explanation to any of the element. If you get stuck at some point, there is nothing to help you, no explanation to its functionality – NOTHING. You may end up spending your time & efforts to resolve an ordinary error.
5- Up-to-the mark Quality
Premium themes are of premium quality, you cannot deny that.
The developers of these themes provide a manageable code so the theme does not get collapsed. Also they make sure that every element is placed at its specified spot and does not collide with the rest of the elements.
These themes are optimized according to SEO algos and coded well so the search engines consider them while ranking. Premium themes follow the genuine coding standards so you would not run into some coding errors.
WordPress is improving its quality with every update. The premium themes are designed to fulfill every requirement of the user. You exactly get what you pay for. The designs are created according to latest standards.
With free theme, one has to follow the regular design and no uniqueness. You are restricted to introduce designs, headers, footers and sidebars of your choice.
Due to high competition rate among the premium developers, everyone is trying to introduce advance and better features at low rates. You can find the desired elements at low rates which makes premium themes a better option.
