Hey entrepreneurs, listen up! If you don’t have a website yet, you need one. End of story. But if web development isn’t your thing, you might feel like you’re floundering a bit trying to find the right solution. Do you opt for a Wix site? Do you hire a designer? Both of those options can work for some but I’m much more of an advocate of using WordPress to get the job done.
In fact, business WordPress themes are flexible enough to create any kind of site you could ever want but provide enough of a framework so delving into the site’s code is totally optional. I tried to put together a good balance here of themes for entrepreneurs, startups, and small businesses that offer drag-and-drop layouts and code-based customization options. Some provide more wriggle room than others but the common denominator here is simple: quality.
Enjoy our latest collection, this time including over 20 business WordPress themes for people looking to get into business for themselves.
