If you search for a new WordPress theme, then it’s highly recommended to keep in your mind that the respective theme should be bought because you need it and not because you like it. Many people show no respect to this idea and sometimes the consequences are disastrous. Undoubtedly, it’s a big difference between what is needed and what is liked. Therefore, a WordPress theme should be selected by taking into account the necessities. As the great Roman orator Cicero said, the power of example is amazing: let’s suppose that someone should select a WordPress theme for a financial institution, but he/she is madly in love with a theme very suitable for a blog. Could the last theme be the most awesome one, but would it be a good solution? I am in doubt about…
Maybe some readers consider that the respective theme may be customized. Well, customization process supposes the making of some fine tunings, while adapting a blog theme to one suitable for banking websites is another complete story.
The conclusion: choose a theme that is appropriate for what you need!

2.Don’t ever ignore the visitors

It’s not enough to select a theme that is suitable to the owner activity field. Every website is created and launched for visitors, so you can’t ignore them. The selected theme must be usable and accessible, else the users will encounter various issues and they will instantly abandon the website. A very good approach is to try as much as possible to imitate the behavior of the common user. Apparently, it seems difficult to realize this “transformation”, but it’s not rocket science! Imagine why an individual will would visit the website and what he needs more.

3.Check the anterior activities of the seller

Selecting a WordPress theme is a very time consuming activity, but none allows wasting time. Sooner or later, few themes are selected in the final phase and choosing the winning one is very close. Before choosing the theme, it’s a good idea to check the previous activities of the seller. How to check the seller? It’s simple, send an email to NSA and they will provide his full resume!!!

Many themes marketplaces have a very good system of rating the WordPress theme providers. The past clients have the possibility of rating the theme bought and of course, they are free to comment regarding the product or the seller. These are precious indicators of the quality level of the product to buy. If you buy the theme directly from the creator, you may check the portfolio testimonials. Anyway, checking the seller isn’t a facultative activity if you care about your money!
