Conversion is one of the main objectives for creating a website — if not the main objective.
Whether you’re trying to convert visitors into members, blog subscribers, or paying customers on your WordPress site, the goal is the same: get more leads.
The theme you choose can have a major impact on your lead generation efforts. While most WordPress themes come with conversion features like a built-in email subscription option and contact forms, there are themes that offer even more features and layouts specifically designed for conversion. These are known as landing page themes.
Below we'll look at some of the most highly rated landing page themes so you can find the best one for your business.
Your unique business goals and needs as well as your budget will determine which theme is right for you.
The selection below contains free and premium themes available either in the WordPress directory or third-party marketplaces. All of them will help you create effective landing pages faster and easier than you could if you built them from scratch.
