Win a Free Premium Theme Courtesy of WooThemes
Chances are you’ve heard about WooThemes in the past few weeks or seen their advertisements on design-related sites and blogs that you visit. Well, here is your chance to grab one of their high-quality premium themes for free. They have kindly offered to give away a free theme to one of our readers.
Here’s how it’s going to work. If you would like to get your hands on a single-user license to your choice of three popular themes (ProudFolio, Vibrant CMS, or Fresh News) leave a comment on this post stating why you would like to win the theme or what you would do with it (please, something more than “I want it.”). On Sunday (August 3rd) I’ll use Random.org to choose a random comment number as the winner. Please leave a valid email address where you can be reached so I can get in touch with you if you win.
The Themes that are Up for Grabs:
This theme was created especially for aspiring designers and anyone else needing to display a portfolio. It has plenty of cool features, including the separation of your portfolio and your blog.
If you’re looking for a theme for a full website rather than a blog, Vibrant CMS may be just the right option. It has 20 different color schemes to choose from and it’s created specifically for small business owners.
Fresh News is the most popular theme at WooThemes. It has three different home page layouts to choose from and the ability to display it as a traditional blog rather than a magazine-style.
What is WooThemes?
If you’re not familiar with WooThemes, it is a recently launched premium theme marketplace that sells themes from four excellent designers: Adii, Magnus Jepson, Mark Forrester and Elliot Jay Stocks. They sell themes in a few different ways. Each theme can be purchased individually with a single-user license or a developers license to use the theme on multiple client sites. Additionally, they have a theme club that you can join for 3 or 6 months at a time, either for an individual user license or a developers license. As a club member you get access to all of the current themes and any future themes that are realized (they commit to releasing at least one new theme per month).
My Opinion of WooThemes:
To start with, the designers behind WooThemes are well-know and respected designers that you can count on for excellent work. I feel that the look of their themes is on par with the higher end of premium themes available today, and the price is very comparable as well. All of the current themes are available for $70 (for a single-user license).
A few weeks ago I wrote a post about what separates a premium theme from a free theme, and I think you’ll see when you look at WooThemes. Each one has a number of options and features that you won’t find on free themes that can make life easier for the user and make the site/blog more customizable. Many of them offer different choices for layouts and color schemes as well as some other options.
Ok, leave your comment – good luck! Thanks to Adii and the guys for the giveaway.
The contest has just ended. The winner is Adam from Devjargon. Congratulations Adam! Enjoy the new theme!
