Make Sure Your Business Benefits From Your Website by Using a WordPress Theme Made for Consultants
The WordPress theme you use for marketing your consulting business should support both your short and long-term goals. In the short term, you need a website that integrates features aimed at generating leads. Long term, you need a website that can be easily maintained and updated as your consulting business grows.
In order to help you create a website that will meet those goals, we have rounded up five of the best WordPress themes for consultants. All of these themes include helpful and innovative features that will legitimize your business and promote your services online.
This is one of the most popular themes for consultants. It’s actually what we use for our website. It also was one of five winners of an Envato Market contest for Best Business Themes. With the Consulting theme, you get 20 different layouts that you can use to start building your website. It also includes the Slider Revolution plugin, the Visual Composer page builder, as well as the Booked plugin that’s used for setting up appointments.
On top of those plugins, the Consulting theme is integrated for use with WooCommerce, Gravity, WPML.org, Contact Form, bbPress and MailChimp. The Consulting theme was built with Sass, a CSS extension language that’s commonly used by web developers and designers. Although you don’t need coding skills to build a website using this theme, the fact it’s made using one of the most commonly used languages in the industry means it should be easy for any developer to jump in and work on your site.
The Consulting theme also offers:
- Two blog and news layouts
- FontAwesome icons
- 800+ Google Fonts
This theme is tailored specifically for females, but it should work for any professional consultant – the unlimited number of colors and variety of fonts can be customized to align with your existing brand. The Motivate theme focuses on creating credibility using testimonials. There’s also a heavy emphasis on call to action blocks, and there’s a “As Featured In…” tool that you can use to highlight publications that have written about your business.
Another notable feature is fully customizable opt-in blocks, which put lead generation at the forefront of your site. You can customize opt-in blocks for the homepage, for article pages and for sidebars. And with the included drag and drop Elementor Page Builder plugin to design page layouts, you don’t need to know how to code to customize every detail of your site.
The Motivate theme also offers:
- Four blog layouts
- Direct link to MailChimp
- 600+ Google Fonts
UniTheme includes the ultimate collection of building blocks needed to create a great website. You can start with one of 14 pre-made layouts – all of which are designed with businesses in mind – or build your site from the ground up. And, whereas lots of WordPress themes are designed as either one-page websites or multi-page websites, UniTheme offers both.
UniTheme also includes the Contact Form 7 plugin, and easily integrates with several other online services, such as MailChimp. If you want to have control over every aspect of your theme, UniTheme allows you to make all necessary design adjustments using the included Visual Composer plugin, which doesn’t require any coding knowledge or experience to use.
The UniTheme theme also offers:
- Multiple blog layouts
- Multiple portfolio layouts
- 860+ IcoMoon icons

The Success theme is made specifically for business and professional services websites, making it a great fit for all types of consultants. Although it has only one premade layout, you still have the ability to change colors and fonts so they align with your own brand. You also can customize the layout of every page using the drag-and-drop Visual Composer and LayerSlider plugins. Plus, the fact there’s only layout makes the design process more manageable for consultants who don’t have coding experience, and it allows you to get your website up and running faster.
The Success theme also offers:
- Custom CommerceGurus Toolkit WordPress plugin
- Multiple blog layouts
- 650+ Google Fonts
The crux of the Entrepreneur theme is a system that automates booking and scheduling for you, making this theme especially valuable for consultants that set up a lot of meetings. That feature syncs with your Google Calendar, Apple Calendar or Outlook Calendar – whichever one you like to use. The forms for booking appointments can also be customized using a drag-and-drop editor. All users see your calendar in real time, and booking an appointment takes them straight to the checkout page so they can pay for their appointment right away.
The Entrepreneur theme includes several additional features that will help you easily communicate with users and generate leads. You can add testimonials, details on the services you offer, pricing information and more. In terms of design options, it offers eight pre-made layouts to choose from – including one that’s specifically for consultants.
The Entrepreneur theme also offers:
- One-page and multi-page layouts
- Portfolio layout
- 1000+ Google Fonts
As the online “face” of your consulting business, your website should be a top priority. These five themes will help your website reach its full potential. Each one offers a wide selection of tools that can be used to target potential customers and clients, while making it easy to maintain and update all of your content. If you are a consultant looking to get your business online or improve your online presence, consider one of these themes to jump start your new website.
