Best WordPress Theme for Amazon Site

by 60 comments
Hello,

I have good exact match product domain where I am planning to start a Review style blog using ReviewAzon Plugin and Possibly Adsense.

Does anyone know of any good converting(Premium or Free) WordPress Theme for this review style blog?

If you know of any good example of existing similar site, please provide me that.

Thanks.

    I have multiple sites promoting Amazon and really like the Flexsqueeze theme.

    Thanks.

    I have heard that Amazon coverts well only around Christmas time.
    Is that true?

    What have others found. Let me know.

    Amazon converts well at any time of the year. Christmas is always going to be better because more people are in a buying mood.

    Amazon knows how to sell so you will find conversions are so much better than with most other merchants.

    Thanks Paula.

    I looked at the FlexSqueeze Theme but that looks like its made for sales pages only.

    They have some Theme skins which I will research. Do you like any specific skin for Amazon sites?

    Same here. I use Flexsqueeze regularly especially if I cannot find a theme that really matches the niche.

    Do you use ReviewAzon plugin or any other plugin?

    I use those types of plugins and I really like them BUT I have had better success with just writing product reviews in Wordpress. The problem with those types of plugins is that people use them to duplicate exactly what is on Amazon onto their own site. It's hard work competing with Amazon when you have the exact same content.

    If you are going to use these plugins then make sure you change the content that comes over. They work beautifully that way.

    It really depends on your niche, right? There are so many wordpress themes made around small niches, that just googling your niche followed by "wordpress theme" may actually give you something to work with.

    I just use Twenty Ten with WP Weaver which allows you to customize the whole thing as you want it.

    A great theme that I've recently discovered is the Socrates theme by Joel Comm. It's got a custom header generator, including tons of background graphics for almost any niche.

    I use it on my blog here: Socrates Theme | Traffic and Conversion

    That page is also a full description of the theme, and explains more about why I use it there.

    There's also a link on that page to a video about how to customize the them for whatever niche you're in.

    Enjoy.

    I think what theme you use depends very much on what type of site you want. For me its either a site that is very blog orientated or one that is a pure shopping site. Ive gone for the ecommerce/shopping type design for my main sites but but difficult to find a suitable shopping style theme that hasnt got all the fancy shopping cart functionality.

    I took a premium theme and edited out all the shopping card funtions in php (which wasn’t easy) and Ive ended up with an e-hop type theme. All without all the shop cart stuff that you use if you ship physical products but with all the stock and product functionality at the
    back /admin end. See my signature below for the resulting sites.

    If I go for a more blogging feel I use solostream themes

    I just feel so many sites go for the typical blog design so i wanted sthg different. I also use the Amaniche mmcommerce theme – although the plugin is ****** problematic. Im trying to wade through all the bugs and come up with solutions to the problems im having with it. Anyway, you can see what Ive done with this theme at buycardvdplayers.net

    I like that theme as well as the ones for studiopress. I use a customized version because they have a professional feel. I have also found some killer deals on themeforest for some beautiful looking themes for only a few bucks.

    Check out my amazon review site in my signature. It was made from all free themes and plugins. How do you like it?
  • Profile picture of the author sickbaomei
    Free ones like Inove and Intrepidity are good ..

    My conversions to Amazon increased when I started using the ReviewAZON plugin alongside quality unique review content. Having the product image and price information right at the top of the page is important, and ReviewAZON saves so much time and effort to get that done at the click of a button.

    I've just come across this one and am about to start working with it on a couple of sites. The video and the comments appear very convincing.

    One of the theme I like best is : Penthesilea Theme.
    Its just above me under Mrs S. signature.

    If you want something easier , try WP Shop Builder.
