Did you know you can host a powerful and versatile company website on the WordPress.org platform? Frequently we find our clients confused about WordPress sites – they’re not just for blogs. In fact, lots of businesses use WordPress for their static sites because a designated web administrator from within the company can easily edit pages through the Content Management System (or CMS – which we have a whole post about right here). He or she doesn’t even need to know HTML or any programming language because the backend is as easy as a few menus and a word processor.
What you will need for your new site is a great design, and luckily for you, there are seemingly endless pre-made WordPress themes to suit your needs. Some are premium; some are free. For a new business with a limited time-frame or budget, one option is to try to find a free or low-cost theme, and then hire a designer to help you personalize it. It’s a little known fact that once you’ve downloaded a theme, you own all the files, so you can edit it however you want!
Here are 10 awesome and totally free themes. Maybe you’ll love them as is, or if not, you can always add a few tweaks here and there and no one will know you didn’t build it from scratch!
