Introduction

Using a WordPress Theme is a great way to get started on WP. WordPress themes let you enhance your site with cool, creative designs while keeping costs low. When choosing a theme, look for features like responsive design, plugin-friendliness, cross-browser capability, post formats, and, of course, a creative and beautiful design.

You should also choose a cost-effective WordPress theme. Using a custom theme can run anywhere from $500 to $2,500. Getting one developed just for you ranges from $3,000 to $60,000–possibly more for complex eCommerce sites. Using a Premium WordPress theme or a DIY site with plugins can keep costs at $50 to $200.
