A great business website is one of those things that will always be valuable. Yes, social media is important, but a business shouldn’t rely on it. Social media can be fickle and misleading. On top fo that, social media can fall in and out of style. A great business website, though, is always there for you.

You might think that the only way to build a site for your business is to make one from scratch. That’s certainly a viable option, but it’s hardly the only option. As it turns out, WordPress is more than capable of supporting even the most robust business sites. It’s really just a matter of understanding what WordPress can (and can’t) do for you.

To help you with that, we’ve assembled this collection of tips that will help guide you towards creating the perfect WordPress business website. In order to ensure these tips apply to your situation, we’ve focused on more general tips that can aid just about anyone. That isn’t to say that they can’t help advanced sites but rather that ensuring your site adheres to these tips is the surest way to make sure you’re on the right path.

Blog themes are among the first themes that many WordPress users ever tried. After all, personal blogs were one of the early stars of the internet, and their popularity has only declined slightly over the years.

The blog may be one of the internet’s oldest content corners, but blogs have evolved quite a bit over the years. That’s why you need a theme that understands that a few posts and a catchy name won’t quite get it done these days. Thankfully, there are more than enough options out there that can help you get started in this exciting world.

Latest Download Speed Tests

In order to backup the claim of delivering the most responsive themes,  speed tests are run for all of our recently released themes.  As we optimize them in terms of SEO, we realize that a key factor is fast-load times (We also continually test our own site to optimize it with the most recent wordpress developments).  As the internet traffic continues to increase and more mobile-users are on-line, it is becoming vitally necessary to benchmark the speeds of our themes.    In the speed numbers presented below, please note that they are not constants.  There are several major factors beyond our control that could affect your site’s speed:  your host server, the content (especially the images), and the plug-ins that you are using with your themes.   In terms of hosting, we recommend WPX hosting.   We are very ecstatic about the speed of the servers as well as their customer service .   Their 24/7 on-line chat with a live customer support representative resolves problems within minutes.

If you’re looking for revenue tips, then you’ve probably realized what so many other WordPress site owners already have. It’s not easy to make money off a website.

While running a successful website can be an enjoyable and lucrative endeavor, a profitable website is part of a process.

Revenue tips alone will not result in instant cash flow. However, whenever you find yourself wavering during the difficult process of website creation, these tips can help ensure that you know you’re on the right track.

How to Speed Up Your Website

In other words, what are the ways to increase the traffic to my site?  A fast website translates to a better user experience, and increased traffic if a significant percentage of referrals come from the organic search engines.  And if your site generates income, this means increased profits.

Please keep in mind that content is king.   A fast website does not ultimately increase your viewership if it lacks interesting content.  

But please also realize that visitors want responsiveness.  A Google study indicates that 53% of mobile-based visitors will not wait for more than 3 seconds.  The same study finds that “sites loading within 5 seconds had 70% longer sessions, 35% lower bounce rates, and 25% higher ad view-ability than sites taking nearly four times longer at 19 seconds.”  Another study on ecommerce sites shows that 50% of visitors abandon ship after 5 seconds.  Therefore, as a site owner, it is imperative to serve a responsive website.  Responsiveness is a key design parameter in all of our themes as well as our own.
