WPNow: Affordable WordPress Themes
Today's Editor's Picks
WordPress is an important part of the business for most affiliates. It is true that some prefer other website management systems, but the great majority have found WordPress as the best possible solution for website management. And not without a reason.
With WordPress you can launch a well-built affiliate site in a matter of minutes (yes, no joke). However, in order for your site to be truly quality you need a great theme. And those don’t come without a price tag. Thankfully, there are many theme stores on the market that offer professional solutions for very affordable prices.
Today, we want to take a look at one of those stores – WPNow.
At the time of writing, WPNow offers 10 custom-made WordPress themes.
Each theme is carefully coded to meet the high standards of the industry. They’re all search engine optimized and widget ready, which gives you many possibilities in terms of tweaking your theme to fit your niche perfectly.
Some other important characteristics of WPNow themes are:
- unique designs,
- proper use of CSS and HTML tags,
- support and documentation for every theme,
- easy-to-use settings panel (one-click settings),
- social media ready,
- editable Photoshop source files (PSD).
Price / Plans
WPNow sells their themes in two basic models. You can either get a single theme, or a whole package of all themes.
There are four main licenses available:
- Bloom Basic – $49. Buy one theme, get one theme free. Also, installation tutorials, support through a private forum, unlimited future updates.
- Bloom Developer – $69. Same as the above, plus additional PSD files.
- WPNow Theme Club – $99 per year. Access to the entire theme collection.
- WPNow Developer Theme Club – $149 per year. Same as the above, plus additional PSD files.
As mentioned above, WPNow offers support through a private forum, which should be enough to get every issue solved.
Plus, there are also sections containing WordPress tutorials and theme instructions.
The themes at WPNow surely seem interesting and well-built. They’re optimized for WordPress 3, and have some SEO capabilities built-in.
What’s also great is their affordable pricing. Getting access to the whole gallery of themes for just $99 is surely a bargain.
The site offers only 10 themes now (9 paid ones and 1 free). This isn’t much if we take a look at other stores like ThemeForest, for example.
Also, their own site is not that stunning itself, which gives us second thoughts regarding the overall quality of their work.
The Bottom Line
If you’re an affiliate running a number of sites in different niches, and you need a cheap supplier of WordPress themes then consider signing up to WPNow under one of their Theme Club licenses. Otherwise, you’re probably better off going with companies like DIYthemes or ThemeFuse.
