The 2013 calendar year has started off with a proverbial “bang” as premium theme companies work to release new products that keep pace with growing market demands. Social sharing and small screen device usage have quickly become cornerstones of the WordPress industry, and theme firms have taken notice and reacted accordingly.
The upcoming release of Agency Pro by FrogsThemes promises to be a popular download for premium members who are able to enjoy full access to all of the company’s themes for a yearly subscription price.
Agency Pro Description
FrogsThemes put out a statement recently which describes how the new business theme will function, saying that “web agencies all around the world invest thousands of dollars each year developing their own website to attract new business. It’s a big expense to recoup even for the biggest of companies out there but now they can get a new website for a fraction of the cost and in a tenth of the time thanks to themes like ours. Our WordPress themes, coupled with the power and flexibility of WordPress, make a winner combination.”
It is indeed true that a growing number of brick & mortar agencies are looking for a way to develop a successful, sleek website without throwing a huge budget at set up and maintenance. Programming costs for a customized, from-scratch site with advanced features can quickly run into the tens of thousands, but the invention of pre-packaged themes have drastically reduced the learning curve (and overhead cost) of taking on such a task.
The upcoming Agency Pro theme will go one step further by including a fully responsive design that will automatically cater to mobile device and tablet computer users. Long gone are the days when small screen users would impatiently thumb-scroll and pinch their way through a single page because of a lack of options. Themes nowadays normally provide a customized view for iPhones, Android, iPads, etc. This means that visitors can easily navigate a site through simple taps rather than being consumed by simply viewing an entire section manually.
Advertising has also been taken into consideration for the anticipated download. According to FrogsThemes’ blog post, Agency Pro “includes a full width homepage banner that gives designers and developers the flexibility they need to create a high impact web presence with professional photography or something a bit different. The age of standard hero images with generic headings is over and the new trend is to bring awareness to new products, services and important announcements. Why not highlight the fact that you’ve moved offices, or the company is expanding and you have a bunch of new faces that have joined the team? How about highlighting a case study on a recent client project or how about you make a big announcement? Do it! Agency Pro makes it all possible and it’s so easy to do.”
FrogsThemes Subscription Plans
In a nutshell, FrogsThemes offers two types of premium subscriptions: Standard and Developer. The difference in yearly price is the addition of layered PSD Files. Both plans grant full access to all themes currently in the firm’s catalog (over a dozen in all). Some downloads focus on blogging while others service niches (photography, sales, petitions, and more).
The back-end Options Panel is a cinch to manipulate thanks to the simple point-and-click commands; meaning webmasters can focus the vast majority of their time on actual content generation rather than website maintenance and coding.
All of the downloads offered by FrogsThemes are compatible with WordPress and will function on the Internet Explorer, Firefox and Google Chrome web browsers.
