For this collection, we’ve assembled some of the best small business themes available for WordPress in 2017. New entrepreneurs looking to build a WordPress-based site for their venture, or seasoned business owners who want to give their existing site a makeover, will find some excellent options on this list.
The themes we’ve gathered feature contemporary designs and are meticulously coded to be fast and SEO friendly. They’re fully responsive and mobile-friendly, an essential feature of any modern, small business website. It would be difficult to understate the importance of providing a consistent, user-friendly experience to your visitors across the spectrum of devices–from smartphones, to high-end desktops, and everything in between.
The themes we selected for this roundup will adapt well to a variety of different niches and industries. Most of these are large, multipurpose products that offer pre-built homepages and presets, in addition to their large option sets. You’ll be able to do an endless amount of tweaking and customization to really make the theme your own.
However, we know that some of our readers could be looking for something a little more turn-key, and don’t want to dig in deep and fiddle with options and layouts. For that reason, we’ve also assembled a few companion roundups tailored toward common small business niches. Check ’em out:
