WordPress Theme & Page Builder Deals
Once you’ve got hosting selected and out of the way, the next thing you need to think about with your WordPress site is what it’s going to look like to your customers. You want to know everything from making sure it’s responsive to making sure that you can quickly and easily make changes to your site.
We have selected a few options for you as you begin to look at what you might need to make the site design you want.
If you are looking for some really great blog themes that are pretty much built and ready to go, then check out iThemes Builder.
iThemes Builder is one of our older products that is still around. There’s a number of great child themes that give you either a great starting place or a great design to start building your site with.
Here are a couple of our favorites iThemes Builder child themes.
Starting tomorrow, Nov. 25, 2020, you can save 40% off iThemes Builder this week with coupon code DEAL40 through Monday 11/30/2020.
If you are just starting a site this winter, you will want to use all that WordPress can give you. That means embracing the Block Editor. We’ve written extensively about the Block Editor and what you can do with it. We think you’ll like it and we want you to have the very best possible experience when starting a new site in 2021.
For that to be possible, we want to introduce you to our favorite theme, Kadence. Several of us at iThemes met Ben (the developer behind Kadence) last year at WordCamp US. We were impressed with what he was doing with Kadence Blocks and were excited to see that he pushed out the first version of the Kadence theme in April.
The Kadence Theme is one of our favorite themes we like to recommend over in iThemes Training and at Restrict Content Pro due to how feature rich the free version is. Kadence has a revolutionary header and footer builder that makes building sites effortlessly all right within your browser.
Lifetime memberships are hard to come by in WordPress space, so you might want to pick that up if you are looking at using the block editor moving forward.
Right now, you can save 25% off Kadence Theme (or any other Kadence products) and you could save 33% off the Kadence Lifetime Membership.
There’s no question that we’re smitten with Beaver Builder. Over the last 3 years, we’ve run a Beaver Builder developer course every year and have used themes and plugins that fit in this ecosystem for several years.
Beaver Builder is our favorite non-Block Editor page builder. Beaver Builder allows you to drag-n-drop any page layout you want. It features the ability to make responsive layouts a breeze. You can even create layouts that show different content types based on whether you are logged into the site and your user role. It’s that powerful.
Beaver Builder and Beaver Themer are 25% off this week. The discount will automatically be applied at checkout. Good through Friday, November 27th (12:00 am PST) thru Monday, November 30th (11:59 pm PST).

We couldn’t leave our 2nd favorite theme out, Astra. Astra has been our go-to theme when it comes to teaching our Beaver Builder Developer course. The number of features, how well it works with Beaver Builder, and the ability to have some starter templates give this theme two thumbs up in helping you get started.
Now through November 30, 2020, you can save 30% – 40% off Astra. The discount will be automatically applied when you go through the cart.
