As a blogger/online marketer we all want to convert at the highest rate possible and sometimes the basics is just not enough.
This then leads to installing of many other plugins and more money coming out of your wallet which is probably not the best thing for anyone who is just starting out in the industry.
Although this might be a hassle, I’m sure you know that investing into your online business is very much needed and a solid theme that can convert your visitors into buyers is probably a great idea.
Some people would like the best theme for SEO, while others want the best theme for conversions but is it actually possible to have both?
It is kind of tricky but if you were to ask me what I would go with, it would probably be any theme on the Genesis Framework (although I still don’t think they are the best for conversions) as they will make up for it in every other department.
Now if you are running a site that might not be doing any organic traffic and you are doing some advertising and/or in need of some awesome landing pages and whatnot, then I have the theme for you.
Do remember that what will be best for conversions can be dependent on many things like your niche and audience for example.

So What is the Best Theme For Conversions?
I would have to go with Thrive Themes for this one.
Not a huge fan of the coding that is put into creating their pages but if you want to make people take action and click here and click there due to the overall flow of the theme then Thrive is where it’s at.
I ran the Thrive Focus theme for a simple test and they have actually helped me convert a whole lot better than with all the add ons I had with other themes.
Didn’t have to do much comparing to the other premium themes I’ve purchased because as a marketer, you can already see how appealing this theme looks.
There are many reasons as to why I would use these guys for conversions but I guess I can break them down separately.
they do lack in some areas but I will get into that later.
For now, let’s see why I think they will work best for conversions.
Thrive Knows Focus
The team behind Thrive Themes have a very strong focus on well, focus.
First, the font is very much clear and easy to read.
With a lot of themes out there you will usually have to change the font due to it being too light or too small or in a lot of cases, both.
I can’t think of a more easy to read font and I like how their themes are ready to go.
Being the non-coder I am, I don’t want to mess around with that type of stuff and ruin my whole site just because I wanted a different font.
If you’re like me then I’m sure you can appreciate this benefit alone.
Buttons, All Kinds of Buttons
Most themes don’t come with buttons and you usually have to download a plugin or do what I did in my early affiliate marketing days and use an actual image to act as a button on my site.
Well those days are gone as there are plugins or they can be built in just like Thrives does.
It is super easy to make and they absolutely look stunning with the different colors and definitely will help with conversions.
With a left and right button for that added touch, this alone will help greatly with conversions.
Better Landing Pages
I am a huge fan of the landing page and once again, most themes don’t come with one.
If they do come with one, it usually comes with only a wide width option and I am personally not a fan of that look.
With Thrive Themes, you can have that full width look but they also have a narrow option that is absolutely perfect for your readers.
In other instances, you will have to do more spending and get Lead Pages or another landing page provider, which is great but at the very least, a standard theme should come with a solid landing page and that’s just not the case.
Back in the day I would literally buy a theme just for its landing page and if it wasn’t for the Mai Lifestyle Pro theme (the one I’m using on this site) I wouldn’t have everything I need in one theme.
Not a huge deal with converting visitors into buyers but the overall theme is really simple to use and it is also very customizable without having to deal with code.
If you’ve done any type of website design you will know that simple changes like a header background and whatnot is not the easiest thing to do, let alone be built into an actual theme.
Well guess what?
Thrive allows you to customize that type of stuff right from your theme’s settings.
Just like the buttons, there are over 20 added features that you are able to use and I find that to be pretty awesome.
What I have gone over are the very basics of Thrive Themes.
There are several things that they have in their arsenal that will have you wanting and although it is some clever marketing, I find it to add value to your site.
I mean, who doesn’t want better landing pages or a way to build your email list faster?
Well with Thrive architect and Thrive leads, all of that is possible and then some.
Now with all this good stuff there has to be some bad.
At least that’s how things usually are in life and that is why I had to give you some of the stuff that didn’t please me with this theme.
What I Didn’t Like
With a theme designed to convert, there are so many upgrades that could’ve easily been put into the theme.
You will most likely need those plugins as they are that much better but you should still be able to convert better with the theme alone.
Another thing that I didn’t like was all the coding that goes on behind the scenes.
I guess that’s how it has to be if you want something pretty and that is what you get here.
Also, if you plan on switching themes in the future (which I don’t recommend), please understand that all that coding that just happened will not leave your site.
So when you do go with another theme, you will see a block of code instead of that nice little button you created when you had Thrive.
I think Thrive Themes is great for anyone looking to have your readers focus on your content and ultimately take some kind of action that you are wanting them to take.
If you are already an established blogger or you are thinking about upgrading an aged site, I highly recommend you not.
Now if your site is new and you are planning to stick with this theme then now is the time.
Don’t go changing your theme later on down the road or you will be setting yourself up for failure.
Well that’s my two cents on what I think is the best theme for conversions but I’m sure some of you might have your preference so please do share them in the comments section below.
