Minimal portfolio WordPress theme
Web design can be an expensive part of building a website, especially if you are not familiar with the whole idea and is getting a professional web designer to do the job for you. You will soon realize that it can come up to thousands of dollars just to get the website up and running.
We are not even talking about the time it will take to have the website completed or the cost of managing the website. Until your website goes live on the Internet, it does not earn your any money!
Fortunately, there are ways that you can reduce the web design cost and one of the ways is to use ready-made WordPress themes. Now, before you start to hyper-ventilate, let me assure you (especially the beginners) that building a website with a ready-made theme is not difficult at all. With a little help, even a newbie can create his own professional website!
You can certainly find lots of help on the Internet where there are many resources and information are easily available. For this purpose today, we will look at a great theme from ThemeTrust.
Being established in 2010, ThemeTrust is comparatively new. Nevertheless, their themes are pretty impressive and are very well received among WordPress users. In fact, ThemeTrust is a great source of lovely premium WordPress themes that are very much affordable. They currently have 20 themes and all of them are easy to use and easy to customize.
Their themes range from the vibrant business theme, Quantum to the sleek news theme, Oracle to the minimalist responsive theme, Clean, so you are bound to find one that fits your requirements.
But what I like most about ThemeTrust is their attention to simplicity. Beginners will definitely appreciate the fact that ThemeTrust designs their themes without including all the complications that one can find in many theme providers today.
The other thing that I like about ThemeTrust is that they are quick to update their themes whenever WordPress announces any updates. All users have lifetime access to the updated version of the themes they purchased.
Let’s take a look at one of ThemeTrust’s portfolio WordPress theme – the Clarity WordPress Theme.
Clarity WordPress Theme
As mentioned, the Clarity WordPress theme is one clean and straight-forward portfolio theme. A portfolio theme is a theme with a grid layout that is suitable to be used to showcase your photography images or artworks or even products (as in a business website). For Clarity, the effect is pretty unique. Some of its features include:
This filtering process is animated and thus, makes the entire webpage look more engaging and interesting.
This is great feature to add call-to-actions as you can easily and quickly create catchy buttons to create a more unique website.
Page Templates and Web Fonts
The theme comes with many pre-prepared page templates that you can just take and modify to suit your projects.
If you have videos uploaded into video sharing sites like YouTube and Vimeo, you can now easily embed them into your website.
Fast & Friendly Support
ThemeTrust’s customer service used to be pretty slow in the beginning. But when their customer base started growing rapidly especially in 2013, the company decided that they should invest in customer service. Today, I’m glad to report that their customer service is fast and friendly.
You can even translate the theme into different languages. This would come in handy since ThemeTrust has quite a large number of international users.
A great tool on the homepage for you to display your main work or products. The slider images is easily customizable from your control panel.
Social Network integration
You can always integrate your website with your Facebook, Twitter and Flickr. In this technology age, it is important to reach out to your customers and visitors via these popular social networking sites.
How much does Clarity Theme cost?
Only a one-time payment of $49. This is actually a pretty good price to pay for a theme of this quality. Don’t forget that you will also be getting free lifetime updates and support. So, is this a good deal? Yes, I certainly think so, especially if you need a good theme to easily show off your work and highlight your services!
But wait, that’s not all. Here’s another piece of awesome tip. ThemeTrust is currently running a “Buy 1 Free 1” offer. This means that when you buy the Clarity theme, you will also be getting another one of their themes for free! Another ThemeTrust theme absolutely free! So, that makes it $24.50 per theme only!
Once you have made your purchase, you will then receive an email with a download link. Follow the instructions to download the theme. I would also encourage you to sign-up for support.
ThemeTrust’s Clarity WordPress theme is a cool portfolio theme. It has great functionality and lots of useful features but at the same time, easy to use. And it’s so flexible that you are able to customize it to suit your website requirements whether you are a blogger, freelancer or business owner.
