Today’s Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and other individuals who offer financial planning services not only have to ensure enough customers are coming into the firm’s brick & mortar establishment, but also need to find an innovative way to cater to the growing online audience that spends the bulk of their time navigating the virtual realm. Thankfully, there are several quality WordPress themes out there that are capable of carrying the load, including the all new Augustus premium download from Web Savvy Marketing.
On Tuesday, May 28th, Web Savvy Chief Executive Officer Rebecca Gill posted about the latest commercial release form the company on the official blog by saying, “We are happy to announce the release of Augustus, one of our newest Genesis child themes. Augustus is an ideal solution for financial advisors, planners, and firms who need a DIY option for WordPress website design. Augusts is a premium WordPress theme that overlays on the Genesis Framework so it is feature rich, functionally robust, and very secure. WordPress is a perfect solution for financial planners and advisors, because it allows tech savvy financial professionals to manage their own websites and online presence.”
Augustus Financial Services Theme
The Augustus homepage is busy yet remains clean thanks to its effective layout that gives a “live” feel while retaining the traditional layout that most WordPress users have come to expect. First, the company’s logo and brief description are slotted on the left-hand side, with the top-right dedicated to the firm’s telephone number (or email address) along with social media icons for followers and fans on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.
The top navigation bar is capable of highlighting any section that is currently being moused over (plus there are drop down menus for sub categories), which leads us to the Featured Content Slider. Here, the webmaster can insert a title, sub-heading and description which will appear within the confines of the module along with the image itself. Of course, you can select whether to automatically rotate your entries via the back end and there are icons for manual manipulation of the slides from the front end as well.
The three column blurb section covers the entire width of the slider and is laid out effectively with icons, headings and text along with the all important Call To Action button at the bottom. Add extra enhancement to your homepage by inserting a newsletter sign-up module, testimonial or other information such as a news feed, or simply publish your blog independently on a separate page by using the custom page templates.
Augustus Child Theme Is Responsive
According to the company’s product page for this theme, this “Genesis child theme has five color options, lots of features, and it is SEO friendly. Augustus comes with multiple sidebars, widgetized home page, flexible rotator, call to action boxes, and author boxes for single or multiple bloggers. This responsive WordPress theme is mobile friendly and will automatically adapt to optimize the user experience on mobile devices.”
Augustus is fitted with a responsive design from the moment you download it and activate this theme onto your WordPress website. Visitors who use an iPhone, Android, iPad, or other similar device will have no problem navigating the content due to this customized view which will eliminate much of the unnecessary pinching and thumb scrolling that comes with non-responsive products.
In all, the Augustus theme is highly flexible and will work well with just about any financial services business that would like to create or improve an existing website that uses the WordPress platform. To see how this theme responds in real time, take a look at the Augustus Theme Demo.
