Choosing a Magento theme can, at first, seem like a bit of an expedition. Each one luring you in like a genie beckoning you make a wish to only discover that theme is not quite what you’d wished for. Stumbling upon ‘the one’ only to discover it’s already taken by a rival. We’ve all been there.
Finding and selecting the right design template is integral because if you get it wrong, your Magento site could be failing at the first hurdle. Failing to identify a theme or a template’s strengths and weaknesses can often lead to potential problems further down the line. Therefore, ensuring the theme you choose is fully flexible will enable you to make sudden changes or fixes without hindering too much else along the way.
It must also be flexible in terms of the responsiveness of the site. If the design is not responsive, all of your hard work will be pretty much lost. Remember, just because it looks pretty on your screen, it doesn’t mean that it will necessarily look the same on someone else’s smaller tablet, for instance.
The more modules your Magento theme possesses will allow your site to be more extendable, offering up infinite adaptations. Although this expands your Magento store to new dizzy heights, make sure you employ small resources on those new pages. Make sure your images are optimised and videos are compressed, in other words.
Finally, ensure the template you select has a professional layout. Make certain its right for your business and reflects your brand accordingly. And check that it’s geared up to be more SEO friendly whilst you’re at it.
