The Optimizepress theme caters for the needs of just about anyone who needs a website.

Whether you are setting up a website to go blogging, or to market your products or services online, you will struggle to find a WordPress theme that delivers on so many fronts.

Personally, I tried loads of different themes, but every time I ended up pulling my hair out, either because of the complexity of getting them to do what I wanted… or because they were incapable of doing it!

I must admit initially it was quite an adjustment moving away from the original Optimizepress Theme and onto the new 2.0 platform. I'd gotten used to the older version so it was a real pain having to figure things out all over again.

Like most things though, if you stick at it, everything starts to fit into place and the same happened for me with Optimizepress 2.0.

Optimizepress ThemeThe Optimizepress Theme has become a way of life now and I couldn't imagine being without it.

There is such a wide range of Optimizepress templates that I have never not been able to find a template to meet my needs… and the tutorials in the members area are excellent.

If I have ever found myself struggling I have always been pleasantly surprised at the speed of response from the support team. They really are helpful and I think that speaks volumes for the brand, and adds incredible value.

The Optimizepress theme is something of a chameleon, it can be whatever you want it to be. If you just want a really great blog platform, it can do that, and being able to add Optimizepress theme elements into your blog posts, really adds something to your content.

If you are a marketer, Optimizepress theme can save you fortunes. You can create just about any landing page, lead capture page, sales page, thankyou page or download page in minutes using the templates provided, or from scratch, whichever suits you, it's really simple and incredibly intuitive.

Similarly if you are looking to build a membership site. The Optimizepress theme has it's own excellent Membership site plugin, which allows you to easily control who has access to the content on your site.

Optimizepress Theme Membership Sites

The first site I built with Optimizepress Theme was my ISN Coins team site and I am really pleased with that, it's packed full of content and I know it adds massive value to all the team at the International Silver Network.

This is one of the capture pages I created there with Optimizepress templates to share the International Silver Network.
