Pros and Cons of using Avada
Many users of the Avada WordPress theme choose Avada for it’s powerful features and ease of use, especially those who generally make use of the default pages that comes available with the package. Little do they realise just how powerful Avada really is. Avada is like a Rolls Royce with a V8 engine. You can’t expect to win a Formula 1 race with a light weight vehicle. If you looking for a light weight WordPress theme, Avada is not the theme to use. Under the hood is a massive engine, Avada has a large CSS file and many Javascript files which fuels the many features of Avada. The plethora of settings can be overwhelming for first time users of Avada especially if they wanting to have their web site setup as quickly as possible. It takes a fair amount of time to aquaint yourself with all the settings. It’s not something that is done in a day or even a month. Considering the tens of thousands of people who have purchased Avada, its humanly impossible to create a theme which is strictly ideal for one customer, unless it is created from scratch and even then some, it will cost tens of thousands to have a theme that is remotely anything like Avada – For the developers of Avada it had to a general purpose theme which can satisfy a broad audience and I think the numbers speak for themselves. Avada is suitable for personal blogs, online stores, forums, church web sites, schools, photographers and many more and highly recommended by us for use on any company web site. It’s the most cost effective WordPress theme to use.

We have been working with Avada since it was launched in 2012, we know this theme through and through. We know the server resources this theme needs in order to run well and have created a hosting plan tailoured for Avada. I can honestly say that Avada is the one and only theme to use, the one theme you’ll ever need that does it all and it’s the one and only theme I personally recommend and will work on. And believe me, we tried very many themes, they just dont cut it!

If you’ve read this far, I’m sure you must be wondering if there is a demo available. The Avada Classic theme demo is available at the following URL, and is available to purchase for the sum of $60.00 USD which roughly translates into approximately R900.00. All potential clients who choose to use Avada and our services must purchase a licence. Purchasing a licence entitles you to further free updates which often includes new features, they also address any bugs, if any, and you get access to the ever growing portfolio of 1-click-themes. We don’t mind purchasing on your behalf and will provide you with the licence after purchase. We do not charge a markup on the purchase price of Avada.

And finally, without sounding like a Verimark advertisement, I have to say, “But that’s not all” you get with purchasing Avada – you get the original Avada Classic, and included with your purchase of Avada you get ALL 45 of the demos. This makes this theme the perfect theme for Design Agencies designing web sites for clients. You won’t easily find a sweeter deal than this! These demos can easily be installed through the admin interface at the click of a button. After installation, if you decide you don’t want to use it anymore, you simply uninstall it and try another, or you can simply contact us, request a quote from us and we will get you up and running fast.
