Selecting Themes according to Industry

When you first open your EKM online shop account, you're invited to select a Theme according to your industry and the Products that you plan to sell. This part of the process is designed in this way so that those who perhaps haven't owned an online shop and are not sure what features they would like to have been guided towards Themes that will suit them best.

However, there are plenty of cases where the suggested industries don't match up with what you're planning to sell, or you're already familiar with running an online shop so already have a good idea of the kind of features and functionality you would like from your Theme.

What to look for when selecting your Theme

Essentially, it's the Design Images and some of the features which define what Theme is best for what industry. With this in mind, you can technically customise any Theme to display your Products by changing the Design Images and amending the colour scheme to suit your brand. If you wish to do this, then there's a couple of things you need to consider before you select your Theme to make sure that it the best fit for you and guarantee the most longevity.

Selecting a Menu

To begin with, you need to decide what kind of Menu will best suit your Products. If you have a lot of Products divided into lots of different Categories, then you may be best suited to a Mega Menu. However, if you have seven Categories or less, you might find a Pop-out Menu or Hamburger Menu suits you better. 

[remember]Although our Tweaks Team can add specific elements onto your Theme for you if need be, they cannot amend a Menu, as this is unique to the Theme itself. With this mind, select the kind of Menu you would like as a priority when selecting the best Theme for you and your EKM online shop. [/remember]

Design Images

If the appearance of your Products is paramount - like if you sell clothing, footwear, jewellery or similar - then a Theme with plenty of large Design Images will serve you well. However, if you sell items where the appearance is not as important - such as machine components, plumbing supplies or similar, then Design Images aren't as important and you would benefit more from a Theme where the Product Attributes are listed alongside the Product itself. 

[tips]Don't forget that even after you have applied a Theme to your EKM online shop, you can still experiment with different Themes within your Test Shop without interrupting the activities of your live shop. [/tips]

FAQs

What is a Header?

A header is an area at the top of your EKM online shop which remains the same regardless of which page you're looking at. The headers contain different elements, such as your Logo, Contact Number, Menu and Search Bar, and the design of these varies from Theme to Theme.

What is a Footer?

The footer is like the Header, but this area remains at the bottom of the page and includes elements like Webpages, Contact Details, Card Logos and Social Plugins:

What is a Call To Action?

A Call To Action is a small element which features a short message to encourage customers to buy from you, so they can see at a glance why they should make a purchase on your EKM online shop. Some Themes have just one Call To Action whilst other Themes have three, like this one:

What does 'Contact Number in Header' mean?

A Theme that has this feature means that you can add your phone number into the Header of your EKM online shop so customers can quickly contact you without scrolling to the Footer or locating your Contact Us Webpage.

What is a Site Map Webpage?

This is a Webpage that lists all of the Webpages, Category Pages and Product Pages on your EKM online shop. Customers can refer to this if they're trying to locate a particular page quickly or to view all of your content at a glance.
