Why You Should Avoid Avada WordPress Theme? | Next Earning

Avada is best selling WordPress theme in themeforest- the most popular theme marketplace with more than 180,000 over sales ( when I am writing this). Everyone prefer avada because it is user friendly, easy to use, offers lots of features, regular update and the popularity. Avada is being used by around 20 million people and that leads to believe other people avada is the best one. But it is not true in reality. There are other leaders of WordPress themes  offering better than avada in various marketplace and even in themeforest itself.
Only offering a lot of features doesn’t make a theme perfect if another developer is required to make a website or if it takes few days only to understand the documentation. A perfect theme should load faster, be SEO and mobile friendly, easy to use and understand, secured and flexible. In this article, I am going to explain some of the defects of Avada theme and give you some alternatives for Avada.

Disadvantages of Avada WordPress Theme.

Avada offers a lot of features and you will use only few of them but to make your website up and running, everything need to upload on the server.

5. Dependency

Are you a WordPress Developer ? A Web Development Company ? or a Businessman ? You know about business portfolio better than me. Being dependent on one product may lead to loss one day that’s why we invest in different products and services to secure profit for long term. Same as business portfolio, we should not use only one theme for all the websites or for all the clients. Specially for developers, you should create better than Avada or other themes don’t limit your skills from a wordpress developer to theme customizer.
