The best free WordPress themes for businesses – 2017 edition

Gone are the days when business owners had to rely solely on their mouth-to-mouth and other traditional marketing means. Having a successful business in 2017 means having a modern, eye-catching, and converting website. You don’t have to worry, however, neither if you are not a tech-savvy person, nor if you don’t have the budget to afford professional website designer services. The WordPress community has got you covered. In fact, combining WordPress with some of the best free themes that are available for businesses will allow you to create an astonishing website that will captivate your customers’ attention in a couple of hours. We do not exaggerate on this statement. You just have to choose the theme that’s most suitable for your needs, upload it to your WordPress website, customize it a bit, and boom! Your brand-new business website is ready to ramble.

OK!  But how can I select the best free WordPress theme for my business?

Just like all people are not the same; similarly, their businesses and their WordPress experience are not the same either. There are business owners who have spent some hours “playing” with WordPress, and at the same time, there are business owners who know little or nothing on WordPress and its themes. Also, some companies require a top-notch website or e-shop, whereas others need only a simple yet efficient website just to promote their products or services.
The above are only some of the criteria we’ve used while scouring the Internet to find the best free WordPress themes for businesses. To be more specific, we will be showcasing WordPress themes that meet the following criteria:
•    Mobile responsiveness (the theme will work flawlessly on mobile devices).
•    Customization options and features (portfolios, different sidebars, drag ‘n’ drop builder).
•    Ease of use (drag n drop builder, easy setup process).
•    Social Integration (connecting your new site to your social media should be a piece of cake).
•    The theme is not heavy (It shouldn’t take huge loading times for your site to load; good for user experience and SEO purposes as well).
