Every time I begin building a new website, I always begin with Avada – the #1 selling theme of all-time. No, I am not affiliated with them in any way, and receive no royalties for mentioning them in this article. Nevertheless, Avada is most definitely my favorite theme because of how easy they make it to build a website.
Above, you see 3 different images. These images represent Avada’s theme elements, columns and containers.
When I begin building any page or post using Avada, I get to choose from 34 different container pre-sets. Once I’ve chosen my preset, I can then choose from 28 different column variations. Then, I choose from 64 different elements: the type of content I’ll be adding into the column(s). It’s truly amazing!
From the 64 elements, I have the option to choose between Audio, Contact Forms, Checklists, Coding, Flip Boxes, Image, Separators, Carousals, YouTube or Vimeo Videos, Social Sharing, Pricing Tables, Toggles, WooCommerce Products… just to name a few. Point being, in just a few clicks, I can create one of the most dynamic pages you’ve ever seen. But it gets even better!
Once having created a specific Element, Column and/or Container, I can then save it in a library and use it at any time on any page I wish – with just a few clicks. I can even save an entire Page or Post Template to use and re-use at any given time; cutting my design time in half… if not more.
CONCLUSION: Everything we’ve covered in this entire article is wrapped up in Avada. I never have to worry about shopping around for templates or anything else, because I can make virtually any style of template I want with the Avada Theme. Then, once having built the perfect template, I can re-use it time and again! But there is yet another reason I always suggest Avada. It comes with the WooCommerce plugin already attached.
Therefore, it’s perfect for small business owners who only sell a few products. It’s also perfect for an author who is just selling a book, or even 100 books.
Now, what does it cost…?
Avada by Theme-fusion costs $60, and there’s an option to pay an additional (I believe) $30 fee for customer support. Which can be handy when just getting started with the theme.
However, there is more than one reason I “Purchase” this theme instead of using a free WordPress theme.
When it comes to using free themes, does free really mean “Free?” It absolutely does. However, there is one thing I discovered about free themes when I first began building websites.
Building a website with a free theme can be great, because, well… it’s free. But what I’ve discovered (and this is just my opinion) is that as your business and/or blog begins to grow, you realize that you want to make your site look better with design techniques – whether it’s better colors or better looking page template layouts. That is when you discover you can have a whole lot more website building options if you “Upgrade” the theme.
Now, by all means, it isn’t that the theme owner has done anything misleading in any way.
Nevertheless, when you wish to make your website more dynamic, user friendly, and even more professional looking… at some point you’ll be upgrading. And this is why I always suggest purchasing a very popular and responsive website them from the start.
