Why I Love WordPress and the Astra Theme by Linda Butler of GGA Graphics

Why I Love WordPress and the Astra Theme…

WordPress is a popular and versatile content management system (CMS) that is used to create millions of websites around the world. There are many reasons why I choose to use WordPress to create your website, and you can find out why here.

One of the most important things to consider when using WordPress is the theme you pick. It determines the look and feel of your website and how the information is displayed to potential customers. I use Astra with the Astra Pro Addon to create my client websites and here are 10 reasons why…

1. Astra is one of the lightest and fastest themes available

Astra has many performance-enhancing features included that make it light and fast … and Google just loves speedy websites. The faster your website loads, the higher ranked it will be.

2. Astra is great for WooCommerce websites

Astra has a WooCommerce built-in module which makes it an excellent choice when you want to sell products online. You do need the Pro version to unlock WooCommerce’s full potential, but that is okay, I use the Astra Pro version at no extra cost to you.

3. Astra unlocks your website’s full potential with Elementor or Beaver Builder

I build my Astra Pro websites with either Elementor or Beaver Builder. Both page builders are easy to use and have ready-to-use page templates that make creating the pages on your website quickly and easily with a visually stunning result.

4. Astra allows you to empower your brand’s identity with a global colour palette

Having a global colour palette means that you take full control of your website’s colours for a truly unique online presence! You can easily change the colours of your chosen template to reflect the colours of your unique brand.

5. Astra self-hosts Google fonts

Self-hosting Google fonts allows for lightning-fast and custom typography on your website! You can pick from hundreds of fonts to perfectly reflect your logo and brand identity.

6. Astra uses optimised code and vanilla JavaScript for faster loading times and improved SEO

Astra’s optimised code and streamlined JavaScript significantly reduces the loading times of your web pages. This is crucial for retaining visitors and reducing bounce rates, as modern internet users expect instant access to information. It also contributes to a positive SEO impact, potentially boosting your site’s visibility in search results.
