Premium Themes1:37 with Zac Gordon
The term premium applies to WordPress themes that you have to pay for. A lot of themes are free, like WordPress itself, however a great community of themes exists built by developers who charge not for building you a WordPress site, but just for the theme.
The term premium in relation to WordPress themes
means that it's a theme that you pay for.
It doesn't necessarily mean that it's better than a free theme,
though that tends to be the case.
A huge number of individuals, businesses, and
marketplaces exist that sell WordPress themes as premium themes.
One great example of the WordPress marketplace for
premium themes is themeforest.net.
On this site, we could view all of their WordPress themes.
We could then hover over it to get an idea of what that theme will look like.
And if it's a theme that we really like we could click on it to view more
information about it, preview a demo or purchase the theme.
Another premium theme provider is the company Woo Themes.
Their model is a little bit different though in that they provide the option to
not to sell individual themes, but have what's called a club
where you could pay a fixed membership and have access to more than one theme.
If you find a company whose premium themes you really like
you may find that a monthly membership fee
is a better economic choice than buying individual themes.
Most of the time, though, the membership theme is from a company that provides only
their premium themes for sale, not multiple themes for multiple authors.
