#SmallBusinessWeek Day 1: Spotlight on Jetpack’s Free Themes

As part of our #SmallBusinessWeek celebration, today the spotlight is on how Jetpack’s free themes enable small business owners to get going faster, professionally, and cheaply.

The Common Factor

Every site is different but there is one thing that every website, no matter what it’s for, needs: a design.

If you’re a small business owner, freelancer, or consultant choosing to create a WordPress site for your business this is most probably something you’ve been thinking about.

And possibly worrying about because themes don’t come cheap: you either pay good money for them or you pay a designer to build one for you.

The Jetpack Advantage

By installing Jetpack on your site you get immediate access to 165 multi-purpose, elegant, professionally built, and free WordPress themes.

More usefully, these are the benefits you will experience:

  1. You can get going.
    At no additional cost or waiting on third-parties you can pick a design, write some content, and have a first version of your site online in record time — and then get back to running your business.
  2. Hedge your bets.
    You don’t have to commit to one theme right away while you learn the ropes. You can try different ones and any settings or content you create are automatically applied to any theme you switch to.
  3. Understand what you really need.
    You might still choose to hire a designer (or purchase a premium theme) but, instead of doing that blindly, you will have hands-on experience of what you actually need.
  4. Expert support.
    All Jetpack users, free or paid, are able to get in touch with our support staff to receive assistance with any of the Jetpack features.

Reason #1: Free, Elegant, and Professional Designs

Whether you run a bookstore, cafe, restaurant, consulting firm, or are a freelancer, choosing a site design can be the hardest — and most expensive — first step.

Jetpack provides 165 free, professionally designed WordPress themes that you can then customize with Jetpack’s own design tools. Most small business owners find this is an easier way to get started than purchasing expensive themes and then hiring a designer or developer.

Reason #2: Cost-Effective and Affordable

The majority of Jetpack’s features are free. That’s already a great starting point for any business, especially since all our free features include most of what a typical website needs likes stats, related posts, an image CDN (saving you hosting costs), sharing tools, and email subscriptions.

And our paid plans start from an affordable $39 per year: less than 11 cents a day.

Reason #3: Bulletproof Security

If you’re like most small business owners you don’t have the time — or the expertise — to be taking backups and auditing your site daily for hackers, malware, and spam.

Our free security tools — including brute force attack protection and uptime monitoring — make sure you never miss out on traffic and business leads because your site is hacked or being overrun by spam.

Our paid plans provide expert security support, automated backups (so if your site goes down you can get back up and running quickly), and security scanning to identify hacks and intrusions.

Reason #4: SEO and Marketing Tools

Out-of-the-box and for free Jetpack gets you going with making sure your site has a sitemap so that Google can list your site accurately. You also get social media sharing tools, automatic promotion to Facebook, Twitter and other sites, email subscriptions, and related posts so that readers stick around your site for longer.

The main benefit most of our business users see here is not requiring a multitude of plugins to achieve these simple things and, just as importantly, not having to pay for them.

Reason #5: World-Class Support

If you asked our customers what they rave about, most of them will mention our support. At last count we have thirty WordPress experts all over the globe ready to provide assistance — even to free users.

Paying customers get priority which, when you compare the $39 minimum yearly cost to what a developer might charge, is significantly more affordable.
