Two years ago I migrated my content to WordPress. Since then, I haven’t stopped learning the in’s and out’s of this amazing platform. Let’s face it, WordPress is flexible, stylish and there are tons of plugins to customise your website. Best of all, you don’t have to be a developer to put your brand out there. WordPress has everything sorted for you.
According to Wired magazine WordPress powers 24% of all websites in the online world. Besides, the recent partnership with Woo-Commerce and the new video features, added more value to this already valuable platform. Now, it’s super easy for online business and freelancers build their online presence.
Not surprise, every new company has a WordPress website. The costs are also very accessible, themes prices go from $40 to $69 . If you are starting out I’d recommend trying these free themes first, before, jumping into something more sophisticated.
I’ve updated this list with few more themes. Have fun, looking around!
