WordPress Themes – Importance
The WordPress Themes you choose could make or break your online business. The look of your site is paramount on how your visitors view your business.
WordPress Themes are really a plugins that work within the WordPress Platform. Therefore when you find a theme you wish to use or try out, download the zip file and add it from your computer or through the WP plugin/theme library.
The WordPress Themes you choose should allow you maximum creativity in design. It should be easy to manipulate sections. It should allow you to design on a page by page individual basis. It should allow you to add videos, photo carousels, individual images from separate storage servers. The theme should be SEO friendly. The theme should work with all WordPress Plugins.
Most website creators will tell Internet Marketers to have a clean layout. If you are including a blog on your site, it should be the landing page for SEO purposes (most changed and new content for robots to find easily). In most cases you should include a sidebar with key information.
WordPress Themes – Landing Page Key Information
Key information for the sidebar should include things you want people to see and access simply. I suggest that you include:
- A widget Opt-In or Pop-Up to gain your visitors name and email list (The Money is in Your List).
- Widgets such as Post Categories and Recent Posts are simple ways your visitors can view eye catching content that you’ve created with one click.
- Widget Ads like the WP125 plugin are helpful if you choose related Ads to your site and can help you earn a small bit of cash.
- Other Ads in widgets can also be valuable, but remember you do not want to clutter this up especially on this first page.
WordPress Themes – Your Other Pages
If you are lucky enough to find a Theme Platform that allows you to individually design any and all of your pages you will have an extraordinary advantage over your competition.
By having an individual page design you can build Squeeze pages to sell individual products, have photo sales pages that include galleries, carousels, and slideshows.
Different page layouts allow you to maximize the design to greatest extent you desire instead of just trying to fit what you have onto a lack luster theme page.

This site and some of my others will have this new framework by late spring. I am buying the Developer/Business Edition with the Plus package.
My Making Money on the Inter.net website is a Paglines Theme (White House Pro) from about 3 or 4 years ago. Trust me it was the best theme on the market as far as what you could do with the site. But the new framework that PageLines has come up with is like nothing out there. I can’t wait to have the time to implement it.
My wife and I are moving to our retirement home half way across the U.S. and we will be quite busy moving things and fixing things and selling our current home. I’m not sure how much time I’ll have to get my sites redesigned. Heck I don’t even have internet in the new house yet. YIKES!
