Like most online marketers my end goal is to make a living online. That being said, there are a few aspects to working online that I love as much as using WordPress! Unlike most online marketers, I love to create unique websites that look different from the other countless markers online. Artiseer is my favorite tool to do that with.
Using WordPress is surprisingly easy; however, I have found a secret that very few people seem to know about. Most folks spend many hours looking through WordPress themes; only to find something that does really fit their purposes and is difficult to alter. The alternative is to pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars for a premium theme. In my frustration I started to teach myself how to build my own themes and ran across something that I honestly thought was too good to be true; a program call Artiseer! This article will give you the scoop on this amazingly simple program.
Artiseer has a relatively low cost of $125. You can sign up to the program as affiliate and pay for it by referring a few others. Unlike some more expensive programs this is a one-time cost and then you can use the program to create as many themes as you want. Here is why I think it is more than worth the price:
- 1) Artiseer allows you go choose to create a theme for WordPress, Joomla, Drupla or an HTML page. Although I use it for WordPress, I know some folks who like Joomla.
- 2) The program is very easy to use. It took me a few hours to master it.
- 3) It starts out by giving you countless themes to choose from. These themes are just starting points. I usually go through 10 or 20 to see something close to what I want. This actually saves a ton of time and is great way to get ideas.
- 4) Then you can alter the theme you choose. You can change literally EVERYTHING! You can change the structure, color, texture, background, and any other visual aspect of your site.
- 5) When your theme is done, you simple export it as a zip file to your computer. Then you can use WordPress to upload the theme. I can make a perfect theme from scratch in less than 20 minutes using Artiseer.
To be honest I spent a lot time looking into this program before buying it because I thought is looked too good to be true. It really does allow anyone to build themes in a matter of minutes. I believe it is well worth the money. My sites look exactly like I want them to and I can get a new site up and one within an hour of purchasing the domain.
The biggest con of Artiseer is that it does not allow a person to create a website that is way outside the box. For my purposes it is great, but I can imagine that someone who is used to building sites from scratch may find the templates a little confining.
