I started up a business recently, and one of the first things I needed to do was get my name out there.
With a professional, sharp looking website more people will be attracted to your product. Wordpress themes offer the best combination of ease of use and customization. In my case, showcasing my website would lead to other work related to website creation and support. I gained self taught knowledge while creating something I needed.
When I began to look for a clean and official looking theme, I got swamped down with either free themes with spam and custom ads preinstalled. Then I started to look for something made by the pros. There are many template sites out there charging $50 to $70 just for a single theme. Some sites even charge over $100 for just one theme if you include installation.
So I kept searching. Something wasn't quite right about the price. Until I found Elegant Themes. Recommended by many on a few well known wordpress user forums, I was eager to check it out. Just $39 for literally dozens of themes, no spam, and you can download them all over the course of a year.
The support is great too. Multiple moderators check their support forums frequently. I got responses within minutes, with kind and informative replies. Granted, some questions might go outside the scope of their services, but they are efficient at helping with all the ins and outs in regards to customizing their themes.
For example, I tried out the Chameleon theme. As the name implies, it is good for a wide range of potential websites and a snap to modify for whatever may be the goal of your website. Their support forum folder for this theme in particular already has over 6,000 threads: a wealth of information at your fingertips.
They offer more specific themes as well. I've been using their theme 'InReview' for my ratings and user review site. Perfectly adaptable to any product or place you may want to have reviewed, the theme has been set up to do alot of the dirty work for you.
I am truly grateful to have come upon this bargain. At this price, for many high quality themes and expert theme support, it is easily one of the best deals I have ever come across in my years as an internet user and professional.
