Magento is one of the most advanced ecommerce platforms available today. While not exactly easy to use or cheap to run, Magento allows for enterprise-grade implementations of ecommerce websites. Also, it’s completely open-source so developers can customize it to their heart’s extent. Due to this, Magento enjoys tremendous support from third-party developers and designers, making it one of the most popular ecommerce platforms in the world.
For merchants who want to build a new online shop using Magento, a key decision lies in the kind of design they want. Design is always going to be a crucial part of the store’s business strategy, as it plays a major role in persuading customers that the store can be trusted. Bad design has the potential to hurt an ecommerce business in a really severe manner. So, merchants need to make sure that the theme they choose for their Magento store will be attractive, user-friendly as well as responsive (a major portion of website traffic these days comes from mobile devices). The theme can also have a direct affect ton the SERP rankings of a website, as a better theme will make the customers stay longer and as a result Google will have a favorable view of the website.
To help merchants choose the right theme design for their store, Logic Inbound, a digital marketing agency in Seattle, has recently published an article that lists some of the best free and premium Magento themes available for a variety of store niches.
Free themes can help merchants who’re operating with a small budge to launch their store faster and at a reduced startup cost. Some may decry the decision to go for a free theme, as they’re often not updated regularly by the developers and don’t come with customer support either. These are very valid points for a professional store that has to have a great theme in order to be successful. A one-time cost that premium themes command is more than justified when compared to the risks involved with buying a free theme. However, sometimes the starting budget simply cannot accommodate a premium theme, especially considering that Magento themes tend to be quite a bit more expensive that those of competing platforms’.
The article goes on to list 10 free themes that cover a variety of ecommerce business niches. The variety of themes listed in the article can help merchants decide which design will go better according to their product lineup. There are certain site designs that look better for stores with small product lineups. For stores that carry a diverse range of products (typically electronics and grocery stores), the theme needs to be able to display different categories in an efficient manner.
When it comes to premium themes, there are plenty to choose from. The market for Magento themes is significant and as a result there are many web developers and agencies out there who create themes they hope will attract the attention of lots of Magento users. Premium themes have some inherent advantages over their free counter parts, since they mostly come with free updates (fixing security issues, optimizing code etc.) and customer support.
