The first thing someone notices when they land on your blog/site is your WordPress theme. While post people will not realize it’s a theme, they will subconsciously judge the appearance of your site in seconds – and what they’re really judging is the theme you’re using.
People always judge a book by its cover. You could have the most informative and engaging content on your site, but if it looks cluttered, clunky or messy, you can bet that your visitors will click off your page and go to another site.
Your site’s bounce rate will be high and it’ll affect your posts’ rankings in the search engine. That’s just how it is.
This is why it’s imperative that you choose a reliable and attractive WordPress theme that’s customizable, mobile-responsive, free of bugs, and loads fast. These are just some of the requirements.
If you blindly went searching for WordPress themes, you’d be overwhelmed by the sheer variety of choices you have. Many themes will look great, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they work great.
A theme is about more than just aesthetics. It shouldn’t be bloated with code and needs to be supported too. You MUST get your themes from a reputable vendor.
Over the past 2 years, a new WordPress theme by the name of Kadence has surged in popularity and one can’t deny that it’s one of the coolest looking themes around.
Because of its almost neutral concept, you can shape this theme so that your website looks exactly the way you want it to.
Let’s see why Kadence is so popular…
- Excellent free version
Whenever a theme or software offers a free version, there are often limitations that can hamper your progress, which then makes you want to pay and upgrade.
With Kadence, however, the free version is excellent on its own. You only need to upgrade if you want to get the block editor and add contact elements, customized 404 pages and so on.
The upgrade has more fantastic features and you’ll be upgrading because you want to… and NOT because you need to. That puts Kadence in a very positive light.
It’s great for marketers on a tight budget who can’t afford a premium theme yet. The free version is just as good.
- Lightweight and fast loading
The coding in the Kadence theme is clean and not bloated. Pages created with this theme will load extremely fast and this is favorable for SEO purposes.
- Global color palette
You can change the entire look of your site just by changing the colors in your palette. You won’t need to go to each page individually and change the appearance, because it’s all done at one go. This is a massive time-saver.
- Can be used for e-commerce too
- Menu icons
This is a unique feature that you rarely find with most themes… but Kadence has it. You can add menu icons to your navigation to make it look cooler.
- Membership sites too!
Yes, you can create a membership site with Kadence. By combining it with the Restrict Content Pro plugin and creating all the necessary pages your membership will need, you’ll have a profitable recurring income from your site in no time at all.
- Customization options
The flexibility you have when it comes to customizing your headers, footers, etc. is unparalleled. Kadence uses blocks. So, you can make your header look exactly like how you want it to.
With the page settings, you can even customize individual pages/posts despite having global settings in place.
Kadence even provides you with starter templates for your site if you prefer to hit the ground running rather than creating a site from scratch. This is another time-saver.
- 1-year support and updates
Your Kadence purchase has 1 year of support included with it. Your theme will also be updated regularly as and when needed.
- 30-day money back guarantee
The paid version of Kadence is backed by a 30-day money back guarantee. If you’re not satisfied with your purchase, you can always get a refund.
There are very few cons with Kadence. It does everything a WordPress theme should do and more. The only issue we found was that you couldn’t add a search bar with the free theme. If you upgrade to the pro version, you’ll get the search bar feature and a bunch of other cool addons.
Should You Get It?
We’re going to have to shout, “YES!” here.
This is an incredibly cool theme that’s way ahead of its time. We see the rest of the WordPress themes innovating to keep up with the features in Kadence in future.
Your blog/site will not only look great with Kadence, but will also load fast and be easy to use. You’ll enjoy blogging with this theme.
Definitely one of the best we’ve seen!
