And the first thing I ask them is “do you know what you want or don't want for your website?” It is important to know this before you begin your search for a theme. If you haven't created a list of “must haves” for your theme, I recommend taking a few moments to do so. If you're not sure what you must have, make a list of things you know you don't want. Trust me, this will keep you from wasting your valuable time.
Now the next thing to think about is whether you want to go with a Free or Premiumtheme. What's the difference – well you get what you pay for. Now I'm not knocking Free themes, they're great but if you are building a business website I recommend going with a Premium theme. Premium themes are usually well supported, have detailed documentation and provide an online support site for Q&A and specific issues. It is easy to jump on to the support site and get your questions answered or issues resolved quickly.
Ok, if you're feeling ambitious you could start by Googling “simple Word Press themes“. But then you would spend an afternoon searching through pages and pages of choices! I don't know about you but I don't have an afternoon to spend looking at themes!
