Using Paid WordPress Themes for Variety
I’ve been teaching a few clients how to use custom wordpress themes for their online businesses.
For this reason, I’ve temporarily changed the “look” of Moller Marketing to match the Halloween & Autumn colors.
Wouldn’t you LOVE to live in Utah right now?

As a teaching tool, I wanted to show all Moller Marketing readers that yes, it is really easy to change the look of a Woo Theme.
Step by Step Guide on Changing WordPress Themes
Step 1: Purchase a Woo Theme and Download it to your Desktop.
Step 2: Upload the extracted file to your “Themes” folder using FTP (Filezilla is what I use).
Things you’ll need to know:
- Your host username.
- Your host password.
Once you log in, you’ll first locate the new theme file on the left side of the screen. (Don’t open the file, just locate it.)
Then, follow this path on the right side of the screen:
public_html > your site folder > wp-content > Drag new theme to the Themes Folder
Step 3: Once you have the Woo Theme uploaded, click on the Appearance Tab, then the Themes link in the side navigation of your wordpress blog.
It will look something like this:
You’ll need to select “Activate” for the new theme to work.
Step 4: Time to make adjustments to the color of your theme.
Depending on the theme you purchased, there should be options on changing the Theme Stylesheet. Pick the color you’d like to use. (I’m using the Flash News for one blog and the Busy Bee for the Moller Marketing Blog)
Step 5: Open your site in a new window, test it out, and start making sales 🙂
