If you are someone who wants a sales and conversion-focused theme, you'll want to pick Shopify themes that has marketing features already designed into the theme. Marketing themes are one of the best ways to save money on a ton of marketing apps down the road.

Though, that doesn't mean these themes are perfect.

In this post, I'll share with you the benefits and disadvantages of using Shopify marketing themes as well as share four of the best marketing themes in the market.

Let's get into it!


Benefits of Using Shopify Marketing Themes

1. Save money on marketing apps

The biggest benefit of using marketing themes is that they have marketing features designed into their theme so you can do without popular marketing apps on Shopify that can cost a hefty monthly fee. Marketing themes can usually shave off 10 - 20 external marketing apps installations.

2. Customisable, conversion-focused design

Most marketing themes are designed with conversions as the end goal. They also offer more customisation options than most paid and free themes that are not conversions focused.

3. Fast loading

While these marketing themes come pack with features, they are usually light. And since you won't need to install too many extra marketing apps on your site, it will load even faster.

Loading speed is one of the most important factors in converting a visitor into a customer. If your website loads too slowly, the visitor may leave before even considering to make a purchase.


Disadvantages of Using Shopify Marketing Themes

1. Too many features may result in over-optimisation

Having a lot of options to pick sometimes means people will try to take advantage of all the features available. However, this can at times lead to over-optimisation that can lower, instead of improve sales.

To have the best results using marketing themes, it is best to test a few features at a time and activate only the ones which give you the best results.

2. Design

While these marketing themes are designed for conversions, they may not be the most beautiful ones in the market. Though, the designs are usually clean enough to look professional and trustworthy. Just don't expect them to win design awards!
