Socrates WordPress Theme for Internet Marketers

Posted by on 20th Jan 2011 | 5 comments

When it comes to WordPress themes, you have countless options. You can shop around for all the different free themes out there. You could hire a freelance designer and coder to custom create a new theme for you. Or, you can buy one of the several premium themes that populate the web.

One such premium product is Socrates Theme. No, it’s not really meant to be philosophical in any particular way, but this WordPress theme has certainly been on the receiving end of a fair bit of thought. The developers really have loaded it up with a lot of features.

Socrates: A Smarter Way to Theme?

Socrates Theme was created through the combined efforts of Joel Comm and Dan Nickerson. You likely already know about Joel Comm and his online money-making success. The theme, not surprisingly, was built by marketers, for marketers.

Shown above is just one example of what you can do with this premium WordPress theme. Socrates comes pre-loaded with five main layouts, including left sidebar, right sidebar, and two sidebars.

Since the theme was developed with Internet marketing in mind, many of the features focus on this area. There is extensive AdSense and Clickbank integration, for example, as well as a wide range of options for ad banners, sales page templates, squeeze page templates, and so on.

One of the more fascinating features is the rotating 768×90 banner near the top of the page. You can enter several ad codes for this space and rather than rotating with each page load, the ad banner will rotate every four or five seconds.

Adjusting the Theme Without Coding

Here is another example of how Socrates Theme can look.

When you upload and activate the theme on your WordPress blog, you gain an extra set of options pages in the WordPress dashboard. These allow you to adjust a number of different theme options without having to dive into the hard code.

For example, there is a useful header generator that is built into the theme. You can choose from a number of header images or upload your own, define the site title and tagline, and adjust the font style, color, and size of the words. It’s all quite useful and easy to use.

To get a better sense of what you can do with Socrates Theme (without ever touching the hard code), check out the demo video available on the main page for the theme.

How Much Does It Cost?

There are three licenses for Socrates Theme.

The cheapest is $47 for a single site, but the $77 unlimited license is a much better value. This way, you can use the theme on as many of your own websites as you’d like. If you’re a web developer or consulting firm, you might want the $197 developer license instead.

All in all, Socrates looks like it could be very powerful (especially for Internet marketers) without being too daunting or complicated. All licenses come with a 60-day money back guarantee too, and a 7 day free trial.

    I've been using this theme for a while now. It's really great for throwing mini sites together, while monetizing them with content. Once your mini sites index and start getting traffic, you can work on better monetization. Lots of customization and options available with this theme. I recommend it!

    Seems like a great theme worth trying. I particularly like the Clickbank integration that comes with the theme.
