Yesterday, I showed you how easy it is to find and load new WordPress themes.
Today I’ll answer the question “Which WordPress theme should you use?”
(Note: f you want to watch a quick 6 minute video about this new WordPress theme instead of reading about it, go here: WordPress Theme Customization Video )
This question is one that has always stumped me when I wanted to start a new blog, because without fail, each theme I looked at had SOMETHING WRONG with it.
I mean, they were lots that were NEARLY perfect, but there was always that one thing.
For example, it could be perfect except for
- That goofy header graphic
- The header text wasn’t big enough for the title of my blog, or the wrong color, or the wrong font
- Or maybe the background color was just horrible.
- It could be that I needed the sidebar on the left, and it had the sidebar on the right.
- Maybe it had no easy way to put ads on the site
Or maybe it was just plain ugly.
I dunno, it just seems that there’s always something wrong, and it was usually a deal breaker.
My friend Joel Comm just introduced a blog theme that pretty much eliminates all those problems, and lots more. Joel is the guy who is best known for showing people how to make big money with Adsense ads on their websites, and has now written several best selling books on making money online.
He knows a bit about this, and has incorporated almost all of his online smarts into this product.
Here’s what I think is most cool about this new theme: It’s got a built in header generator.
That means that you can totally customize how the header of your blog looks — without being a photoshop expert! You just click a few buttons to pick any one of the 160 header graphics that come with the theme, then type in your text, click a few buttons to put it where you want, change the font, size, color — anything — and you’re done.
It’s really THAT easy. And like I said earlier, it’s like buying one theme and getting thousands, because you can do just about anything with this system.
Here’s a video that teaches you, in 6 minutes, how to customize your blog: WordPress Theme Customization Video
By the way, it’s called “Socrates” — I think because the theme is so smart. Here’s what else is built into the theme:
- Built in Header Generator
- 160+ Niche Header Designs
- Custom Navigation Bars
- Optional Built In Adsense and Clickbank Ad Bar
- Social Media Slider
- Choose from Dozens of Backgrounds On The Fly
- Custom Styling and Color Options
- Affiliate Program Integration
- Custom HTML Rotator
- Multiple Sidebar Layouts
- Internet Marketing and WordPress Training
- And More.
Needless to say, the theme is designed to make setting up your blog EASY, and to make customizing the blog EASY and to make “making money” from your blog EASY.
Joel gave me a copy and I’ll be using it on some of my blogs, too.
I’ve already played around with it, and it is amazing how well and how easily it works.
At the very least, go watch this video to see how it works.
