MyThemeShop, our unique takeaway for the WordPress developer

Welcome to IMS product / service reviews,

In this blog post, I would like to recommend to you this premium WordPress developer company known as MyThemeShop. The company has been around for more than 6 years and this WordPress website is currently using one of its PREMIUM THEME known as Socially Viral Pro.

I first discovered about the company a.k.a. WP developer when I was trying to search for the “best” WordPress theme that’s well-coded & search engine optimized in order for me to deliver my “messages” (my content) that I’m delivering through IMS as my website is pretty new & I need to search for the best ways to get my content (blog posts) discoverable by my site visitors.

After searching for a while, I’ve discovered a few WordPress developer companies that’s well-known for providing well-coded yet “light” in terms of its loading speed & able to perform well in major search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo.

So I’ve come across several famous companies like ThemeIsle, StudioPress, Thrive Themes, MyThemeShop, Elegant Themes, etc.

And I’ve discovered that Genesis Framework by StudioPress is the veteran in terms of WordPress premium themes (paid version for WP themes). It is still one of the most well-known WP developer in the market & we have rising & competing companies like Thrive Themes & MyThemeShop that’s performing equally well like StudioPress but these companies provide its users with much more AFFORDABLE rates.

Then, we have WordPress developers like ThemeIsle & Elegant themes that’s well-known in the market for coding beautifully looking wordpress websites but its overall site performance doesn’t meet my expectations.

In terms of, the sitespeed which is one of the MAJOR factors for ranking our website / content on search engines. There’s a list I’ve found on the internet listed out “unofficial” ranking factors for search engine giant, Google.

After diving deep into a lot of reviews and personally using the themes & plugins provided by MyThemeShop, I believe now is the BEST TIME for me to create an in-depth review about MyThemeShop WordPress themes & plugins.

MyThemeShop theme selections (based on popularity & usage experience)

Socially Viral Pro

Socially Viral Pro theme outlook

SociallyViral pro has one of the KEY FAVOURITE feature that I like, don’t you think that the theme design looks like Facebook’s newsfeed?

Yeah, perhaps it’s not the LATEST VERSION of Facebook’s timeline looks but I believe the MTS theme has created it to mimic the looks of viral social media platforms such as Facebook.

Apart from that the theme is also designed based upon one of the VIRAL website on the internet known as ViralNova.

Schema

Schema Mythemeshop default theme settings

Schema is another theme that I would like to recommend to bloggers / vloggers is the schema blog theme by MTS. The WordPress theme developer claimed the theme to be blazing fast and comparable to Genesis Framework themes by StudioPress.

With that said, a quicker theme also means higher chances of ranking your content high on search engines. Especially Google 😉 If you do notice, MyThemeShop focuses a lot on a well coded, light in weight, clean-cut designs that doesn’t practice over-complexion in terms of its theme design presentation.

Mission statement for MyThemeShop

Mission statement for MyThemeShop (2)

As you can see here, the mission statement that’s found on MyThemeShop’s about me page stated clearly about their code of conduct which is clean code, optimum performance, improving productivity and compatibility with WordPress CMS users.

I’ve tried the free version for schema lite and I do notice the speed to fully load the entire page takes less than 1 second which is superbly good. As compared to many poorly coded themes available within the WordPress repository. Not to mention the potential harmful effects that those free themes would affect the overall performance of your website.

Here’s the presentation video I’ve found on YouTube for Schema theme:

Mythemeshop schema theme vs genesis framework (by Studiopress)

The comparison chart clearly shows that the Schema theme is superior over Genesis framework by studiopress in terms of YSlow grade, page speed grade, page load time and total page size.

That’s so important as users start to build content on the blog theme as feeding more content into the site usually means “heavier” in terms of total file size and the amount of time needed to fully load the entire page.

Some of the other KEY FEATURES include:

  • 100% responsive (compatible across all devices with non-to-zero issues in displaying on different screen sizes)
  • Ad management dedicated tab to manage ad campaigns
  • Built-in review system that’ll boost the compelling factor for each product / service review post, not to mention the click through rate as well
  • Easy import feature to the schema theme from other wordpress themes
  • Industry leading all-in-one control panel to manage all the theme’s settings
  • Rich snippet feature built-in to help increase the captivity of each content published on the site
  • Custom CSS that comes with the redesign and restyle schema, providing users with ULTIMATE CONTROL
  • Unlimited range of backgrounds to choose from
  • SEO-ready with the latest tricks to keep the Google crawl bots dive deeper into the user’s site (increase chances of making it standout beautifully in search results)
  • A theme that’s fully secure and coded in a lightweight manner
  • Includes translation mode by adding translation files
