Features you should look for in a free one page WordPress theme

by SKT Themes SKT Themes
One page WordPress themes have come up a lot lately because of the reason that many people do not need a large website and many start ups and many simple 
businesses just need a website for showcasing info and contact form and location info.

Also they just need to showcase a few items only just to show their services and contact info to people who are interested.

Local businesses need not have a heavy website which have no ecommerce or online shop or have any dealer network etc. 
Thus a one page free WordPress theme best suits these kind of website.
We are going to discuss about the features one may find in these free one page WordPress themes:

1. Responsive: Of course with the evolution of smart phones everyone is holding onto one and if someone is searching for say a local salon or a local restaurant they can quickly Google and find your website and info.

Thus they will open your website on their cell phones and thus your website should be mobile friendly or responsive because this has become more of a necessity rather than a feature so search only for free responsive one page WordPress themes and do not have a non mobile friendly website because that defeats the cause of having a simple website then.

2. Call to action: Call to action is essential because if someone comes from cellphone or mobile phone then a call us button should be available and they 
should be able to click to call instantly from your website.

Also contact form or email id should be displayed in case the person prefers to email you for some sales related enquiry.

3. Custom logo: Custom logo upload option will be very good if present in the free theme option then what will happen is that people can be able to add their brand image that is logo on the top and can specifically showcase their details nicely.

4. Custom Slider: Custom Slider option isn’t that essential. Even if the theme has an option to have a banner then its fine. But few people prefer fancy sliders and video sliders. If the free one page WordPress theme has this option then it will be one of the best themes available.

5. Color scheme: Color scheme is another option which is not fully required but is important if given then what will happen is one can have their brand colors as per their logo colors and can showcase the site nicely.

6. Parallax Effect: If parallax is present then it will be great because a fancy parallax section can put a lasting impression on your visitors. A nicely done website will bring in more leads.

7. Contact form compatibility: Contact form compatibility with good plugins like contact form 7 or ninja forms or other plugins of similar nature is very very essential. If the free theme doesn’t provide this option then one should consider it unless you are planning to not have a contact form. One page themes used as a landing page definitely need this feature.

8. Translation ready: Translation ready would mean that you can create your website in your own language and have your own language properly without 
worrying about English or other foreign language buttons or anything else shown on your website.

Conclusion: Nowadays one page free WordPress templates are becoming more and more popular and people prefer to download these free ones and use them for 
their start up or simple local businesses because of the above features and ease of use. Plus they prefer WordPress CMS because it is easy to use and they can use several plugins along with it and can update the site at their own behest.
