When you run a WordPress website you have the ability to run a platform that integrates well with your blog. This allows for simple integration of products, whether physical or digital, to sell to visitors of your website.
Acabado and WooCommerce make for a great pairing as WooCommerce is known for causing slow performance and Acabado is known for very fast and efficient loading of the pages. The combination gives you a fast store with a focus on blogging!
Now why would someone use a theme which is built only for blogs for the base of a eCommerce platform? Well there are a great many reasons we will jump into which hopefully will reinforce the decision that you will then agree with!
Acabado is built to provide excellent page speed results which is typically a bane for most eCommerce sites. This lean approach to a theme allows you to add only the core components needed to run your store while still achieving those higher scores which are favorable to Google and other search engines.
The one area where most eCommerce stores will fail to produce results is in the lack of a quality blog and Search Engine Optimization to get organic traffic from the search engines. This leads to you having a store but only being able to get traffic to the store via paid advertising, this means the store doesn’t make you money unless you are directly paying out money.
Having a platform with a very blog friendly and SEO based approach allows you the ability to have a store but also to get a blog and content to help bring in people to your store. This traffic can add up to an amazing amount of income potential that you would otherwise have to continually pay for to get the results.
A major issue for most stores is the inability to present an option before a bounce from the site. This can typically cause you to have a much higher bounce rate then the website would otherwise have if you could convince them to look at one more post or page.
Income School actually has a built in function within Acabado to catch people trying to bounce from your website means you have a lot more power on their departure.
For example, if you were to set this bounce container up correctly it could provide a coupon for a discount on a specific digital good which gets them to continue in and evaluate the purchase in most cases.
Acabado has a nice static homepage which features a hero section with a call to action, up to 6 blocks to direct traffic to specific features of your website and your recent blog content which means you have 3 well placed options to route your traffic from your home page. All of this while still maintaining a super high page speed result and allowing the site to load instantly in most cases!
There is a built in section to help you with your Google Analytics tracking, requiring no need to add tracking code to your header or use a plugin. You simply need to add your tracking UA-XXX-X code to the field provided to engage the tracking of your users and traffic data.
In addition you have a meta area in each post for the description which will be used by the search engine which means needing to add on a plugin like Rank Math or Yoast as totally unnecessary, again allowing you to focus on the content and products and the parts which can make you an income instead.
There are hundreds of themes and options available to run your website with, I love to use Acabado as the minimalist nature allows me to instead focus on the things which can bring in income instead of things which will consistently detract from the content creation process.
Instead, by choosing Acabado you are building yourself towards a platform perfectly oriented to make income, whether through advertising or through product sales, blending them both together can bring you to another level and allow for you to take the best from all worlds.
If you are interested in Acabado, please follow the link and I suggest always the $99 lifetime unlimited sites option. This will allow you to install it onto all your sites forever in a time of consistently charging year on year this means you pay once and are free from incurring continual costs to run your website.
If you have never run a website before or are interested in passive income then I highly suggest Project 24, while you are a part of Project 24 you get access to Acabado for free along with a course aimed to take you from a starter to replacing your daily income in 24 months.
For the links like the about button to function they pull content, sometimes hosting will detect this and block the functionality and this is meant to help ID.
Jquery within Acabado is disabled by default to maximize page speed, you can enable it with specific plugins that keep changing but include Elementor, etc.
The rating stars in Acabado have no ability to change within the controls. We cover how to use the Custom CSS option to modify and set the color manually.
Acabado has SEO functionality baked into the theme which can cause issues when you like to use Yoast, Rank Math, or other SEO plugins.
Issue for many with the homepage blogroll and sidebar having bold and or italic text is due to the way Acabado pulls in the excerpt to be used.
