Want a high-quality WordPress site but don’t have a big budget? Most websites are built using themes and plugins. From a development efficiency perspective, it’s hard to beat the value.
First, go to ThemeForest.net and look for a website theme that you like. The trick to picking out a theme is to only look at the TOP SELLING theme that are ranked 4 stars and higher. Click here to view a page with these filters already selected.
The top-selling theme on ThemeForest is Avada. It has 21,500 five-star reviews. And 490,000 purchases at $60 each. That’s 29 MILLION in sales for this one theme. I’d bet that by now, the design firm behind Avada has invested at least a million into their top-selling theme. And assuming they have at least one full-time support person to support the theme, then at this point they have spent thousands of hours on customer support, collecting user feedback and improving the design of the theme to be user friendly on the back end, while also looking good enough on the front end to appeal to hundreds of thousands of purchasers. And you can buy it for $60.
Avada is just ONE of over eight hundred top-selling themes with more than 4 stars. There are a lot of themes out there.
Any web development agency who thinks they can provide anything comparable from scratch is lying either lying to themselves or lying to you. That’s not to say that there is no place for custom design, there is. Web development agencies aren’t going out of business anytime soon. But the way websites we build websites is changing.
Buy the .com domain you want. You can buy one from GoDaddy, BlueHost, or wpHarbor. I recommend using our service because we include domain privacy and unlimited DNS updates.
