What is common between sports and travel WordPress themes? It’s the adrenaline and excitement which is caused by the design. In order to illustrate the similarity of top sports and travel WordPress themes, let’s imagine that YOU are the customer. Case number one: let’s assume you’re looking for a tour to… Norway, for example. What can make you convert when you visit an agency website?

First, it’s an intuitive layout. If you can’t figure out how you can find a necessary tour, that website probably doesn’t care about their customers too much. Logically, you wouldn’t care about them either. So, you need to be able to find a desirable search in first several seconds. What’s next that would incline you to convert? The price, the route, the duration and the dates when this tour is available.

In other words, the details. Thus, the website designer needed to set out these details to you. On this stage, you already start envisioning on how great it could be to get this tour, especially if you like the route and the price. Perhaps, simultaneously with checking out the price, you’d start checking out the images that that tour offers. Clearly, powerful imagery means a lot, and this is the stage where your imagination may go wild, visualizing how great it would be to see these picturesque views yourself.

Allow me to sum it up: in order for you to convert, the website you’re visiting needs to have an intuitive layout, all the details of the tour and powerful imagery. Furthermore, case number two: you’re on a gym website. It has very similar stages, where the layout of the website is great, you start envisioning yourself working out in this particular gym with these particular coaches, and finally the images and the video which you see on the website gives you some adrenaline.

In the end, both web designs need to make you dream further, while still being on the website. Basically, the right web design controls your way of thinking. Hypnotic marketing. And to achieve this effect, you don’t even need to hire a programmer. You may just get a ready-made template.
