WordPress Business Themes in 2014 – 60 of the Best, All Free

WordPress now powers almost 20% of the web. And though it’s hard to say exactly how much of that is attributed to exactly what types of users, there’s no question that businesses have been turning to WordPress at a greater and greater rate.

As you might expect, that increased demand has led theme developers to increase choices. And these 60 free responsive business themes below attest to that.

Exactly What is a “Business Theme”?

A WordPress business theme is a theme that generally doesn’t put a blog front and center.

It might certainly have a blog element to it, but you won’t see the “latest posts” taking up much (if any) of the screen space on the front page of a business theme — at least not above the fold (i.e. the top part of the site you can see without scrolling down).

Instead, a business theme typically has a large area at the top that can act as a billboard of sorts.

Many of these themes also use a slider in that top area. This bold space at the top lets a business get their main message across in a way that’s hard to miss.

The goal is to let the visitor know right away what the business is about.

And so without further ado, here are the 60 free themes – and as mentioned, all responsive.
