As a small business owner, having a custom designed website for your business might not make sense for you to do at this point in time.
Between having a very high cost, and requiring a lot of time to go back and forth with a designer, it can be a bigger headache than you imagined.
At the same time, you might be wanting to have something a little more professional than a free WordPress theme. While there are some great free themes out there, they often aren’t updated and offer almost no assistance or instructions on installing.
While there are times where it makes sense to use a free theme, as well as times it makes sense to have a custom built theme, many small businesses appreciate the benefits of purchasing a pre-made WordPress theme.
You’ve decided on installing a new WordPress theme (perhaps a Bluchic theme!), but making the switch can seem like daunting task.
Was it easy to switch WordPress themes? Will all of my content still be there? Will I lose any information? How do I know my site is ready to switch over to a new theme?

You will not lose any of that information and you do not need to do anything to move the content, as they will remain intact in your dashboard.
Although switching WordPress themes can be very easy, there are precautions you should take before starting the switch to make sure your site is ready. We’ve broken down everything you need to do before, during, and after the switch to keep your website running smoothly.
