There is a great number of blog and site owners who are using free WordPress themes on their websites. There are in all 1,574 free enticing themes available in WordPress Library in today’s date. The demand is raising at quite high pace for free themes from WordPress day by day and also WordPress is fulfilling it to the best extent by adding more free themes frequently.
So when there is such a vast database of WordPress themes available for free then why someone would agree to get paid for getting premium ones? But you would be very surprised on hearing that those ones going for the premium versions are not actually fools but acting wisely for a lot of reasons and the number of these premium themes using customers is quite big to count.
Let me disclose top reasons for opting for paid Premium WordPress Themes, But before moving on I would like a small description about Premium themes.
What Is A Premium WordPress Theme?
In most simple and basic words a theme is Premium if it requires you to pay money to use it. So the one which is not free to use from WordPress themes library, is Premium.
Most precisely a Premium Theme is designed by expert designers and basically targets the market which believes in even paying for a theme which is better rather than compromising with a free one. Keeping this point in mind I have compiled the list framing top reasons to opt for a premium WordPress theme over free one.
1. Quality Standards
Paid themes provide you uniqueness and quality in many terms over the free versions. First of all if you are using a premium theme then there is better uniqueness as a very less number of users would be using it being a paid one as compared to an eye-catching free theme which is used by thousands of users. Moreover as a premium theme is designed with extra care and are generally more capable and compatible to the latest platforms, so it will add an extra advantage over free one.
2. Technical Functionality
As anyone can submit a free or premium theme to WordPress, so taking it in mind suppose you are going to use a free theme which is designed by a person who is not technically sound then it can prove really dreadful for your site or blog if got stuck with any technical issue in future.
As premium themes are designed by professionals and as they are to be used for making money so they are extremely good in functionality and also technically strong. These themes have advanced features like advanced& interactive user interface so as to make it easy for you to perform changes to your blog or website at any later stage.
3. Higher Security
In recent past many people have got security issues with free themes as some of them were containing suspicious, malicious and corrupted code. But the paid versions prevent these security issues to a better extent. You always get better security guarantee while choosing a paid theme.
4. Get Updated Frequently
One more vital add-on for Premium WordPress themes is their feature to get updated on periodically basis which is not a case with free themes. This add to a very big advantage from future perspective like if in nearly future the WordPress gets upgraded to some other version and your free theme got un-compatible with it then either you won’t be able to upgrade your site to new version of WordPress and will surely have to let the new features slip out of your site or you must have to start from choosing a totally new theme.
If you are using a free theme and suppose at any point of time it got some issue which is out of your knowledge, then you would have to keep searching here and there, especially on the web, for the solution as there is generally no assistance or support system provided from free templates. Moreover even after wasting quite a lot of time in browsing through web for a solution, there is no guarantee of getting a reliable answer.
Whereas the case is totally different when it comes to the premium ones. The premium themes designers provide necessary support and assistance which saves a lot of your time and gives quick solution to the problem as well.
