Five Awesome Free WordPress Themes for Small Businesses

Besides the Enterprise theme that I’ve selected for Awesome DC website, I think the following are such a great theme for those of you running small businesses. They are free 🙂

1. Snapshot

Snapshot is another photo-heavy theme best used for showcasing your products. This theme provides an elegant solution to giving a product overview if you don’t feel like downloading a marketplace widget. There is ample room in each photo box for a detailed description but not enough for substantial news posts.

2. The Morning After

The Morning After is a classic for magazine style WordPress themes. Don’t let the moniker fool you, this theme comes packed with sleek navigation features and tons of space for brand headers, featured products, and thumbnails. If you’re looking for a sharp theme with lots of multimedia, this might be your cup of tea.

3. The Unstandard

While it initially looks suited for photogs, this WordPress theme is a great way to feature a set of hot-selling products. Each thumbnail on the homepage can be based around your products; the flashy design is a great way to draw readers in. Warning: Top-notch photography is a must with this scene as it dominates the user experience.

4. Bueno

Much like The Morning After, this theme’s bold, clean, graphics-heavy design is perfect for balancing news, brand, and product highlights. This is a great choice if you’re looking for a site design that can help you build community with enough features and flexibility to promote yourself and your goods.

5. TheSevenFive

This theme is best for small businesses looking to build communities and share information with its users. Posts can be organized in a variety of formats including collected photos, tweets, and straight-up news posts. The lack of a huge header image or brand-focused landing page, however, makes this theme less useful for showcasing products.
