WordPress Premium Theme Advantages

There are two main types of WordPress themes. The premium WordPress theme category used to lack popularity because of the cost associated with it, but now that people have realized that becoming successful online takes either a commitment of time or money within the WordPress themes category, it is starting to become more popular with each passing day. In any case, something has to have value in order to be popular and here are some advantages that WordPress premium themes bring to the table that might contribute towards their ever increasing sense of popularity on the internet.

Advantage #1: Time

One of the biggest advantages that WordPress premium themes have is their time factor. Because you are actually willing to pay for the theme, the person that has created the theme is generally able to put quite a bit more time into what they do. The end result of this extra time commitment is a higher quality. This might not be seen right away by your customers, but when you take a look at things like link placement, detailed color schemes and the logical placement of different elements on the page, what you are going to see is that the extra time that has been put into the premium WordPress themes ends up paying off in a way that very few people would have been able to imagine before these theme types became popular.

Advantage #2: Uniqueness

Another advantage that some premium WordPress themes bring to the table is their uniqueness. In other words, some WordPress themes will allow you to purchase them and in doing so remove that theme from consideration by anyone else. Not all do that however, but even those themes will have a lot less to do with the original creator of the theme. There will be fewer link requirements and fewer credit boxes to deal with.

Truly unique WordPress themes (custom themes) are quite expensive, but these top notch premium themes will also ensure that your blog is a unique one. Nobody else will have your particular theme and in an industry where branding is absolutely everything, that can be a huge contributing factor to your success.

Advantage #3: Seriousness

One final advantage worth considering from the premium WordPress themes is the sense of seriousness that they bring to the table. You have to pay for premium WordPress themes, but that extra cash incentive might be just what you need to get going on a blog project that could easily become a nice business for you in the long run.

    There is some truth to that. It may be worth paying a bit of money to avoid the hassle of having to spend hours tweaking the look of a free theme.
    On the other hand, there are soo many free themes out there that there is always a possibility of finding a good one there.
    Your Newspaper-style themes are very nice, though. :)

    the question is very simple IMO: in any case you will spend some time for searching tweaking and (re-design) and configuration, so the only question is what more profitable for you:

    do it yourself or get a premium one…that's will vary for each one.

    As I see it- sometimes it will take many hours just for looking around

    Sure it takes time Dror, just we need to get our decision on the right template to get familiar with. This way, when you intend to build another site, you will be having a theme under of your hand that you know how to tweak easily and proceed with it.

    I believe that you came across many great designs that is why it is taking time to make a decision for the right one..

    Exactly, at least then you can mess with the html a little and add on widgets.

    For me it has to be Time! But also if I am going to pay more for a premium theme it also needs ot provide extra functionality and style that I can't get anywhere else for free. Basically I don't mind paying if it helps me get my jobs done quicker and easier.

    Must say that today there are just so many great themes around and many free ones now have premium status imho!

      There is something what is not yet written above, but support is the most important part of a premium theme. Actually that is the thin line that separates free and paid themes

    Uniqueness. Above all of these is Uniqueness. Could you imagine competing with a site that looks exactly like yours? I had that problem with one of my sites.

    WordPress is the best blogging platform ever. It is much better than Typepad and blogspot.;-;

    I actually uploaded a free theme and thought…this isn't happening. I tried to design a theme myself and then thought…oh hell no.

    But I love your themes and I totally agree with what your saying. That time I could spend in research and development for my own theme can be spent populating my website after I purchase a premium theme.

    One question though…what is the difference between the standard and developer's pack?! Do developers essentially buy one and get three?

    Thanks!

      The only difference between standard and developers pack are the number of the themes that you get after the purchase. If you purchase standard, you get the theme. If you purchase developers, you get same theme, but plus you get 3 extra themes with it.

        Can the bonus themes be the same as the original purchase? For instance, if I purchase the Advance Newspaper Theme as the Developers Pack…can I get a total of (4) Advanced Newspaper themes?

        Another question: Do subdomains also require a separate theme purchase?

          Dear David, if you purchase a single copy of advanced newspaper theme, you can use it on as many domains as you like. You do not need to purchase it twice, so basically you get 4 themes with dev pack and you can use them all within multiple domains without any problem

    This is a lesson bloggers who want to earn money from blogging must learn early in life. I spun my wheels for months and months on end to try and make free themes work, but to no avail.

    When I purchased the current premium theme I now use about a month ago, I realized that I should have done it long ago. It makes life SO MUCH easier. One that I am very happy about is that I managed to get my site indexed within 6 hours, and on page one of Google (nr 4) within another 24 hours.

    Since them, I'm hooked on my premium theme (I think this is not the place to mention theme names).

    It works for me!

    One more advantage of premium themes is that they are designed keeping in mind the better SEO and coding.So, you can ultimately focus on content.
