10 Epic WordPress Themes for Infopreneurs (Under $50 Each)

by Regina

10 epic WordPress themes for infopreneurs--all for under $50.
As I’ve been creating some new secret brands and helping both clients and friends build more clarity and profitability into their businesses and websites, I’ve noticed something major. It’s HARD to find good WordPress themes for infopreneurs.

As someone creating valuable content and selling your knowledge as information products, it’s extremely important to have a website that is attractive, functional, and organized in a way that helps direct your audience to what you need. And if you’re like me, in love with WordPress and all its capabilities (not that I don’t frequently build Squarespace sites too), then you may be lost on what themes best suit your needs.

And I wouldn’t be a proper co-host of #InfopreneurMonth (P.S. it’s free; check it out and register here) without putting together a list of amazing themes that you can use for your information business.

Hey, did I mention that it’s #InfopreneurMonth?

Infopreneur Month is a set of free workshops, lessons, and resources all about creating content that you can monetize ethically.

Okay, now that we know all about the exciting content of this month, let me introduce you to my 10 favorite themes for infopreneurs . . . all available for under $50 from Creative Market . . . one of my favorite sites to get business goods from.


A great WordPress theme for infopreneurs

1. Wildfire

I love the intelligent design of Wildfire. It brings in the popular trend to highlight one main call to action (CTA) at the top of your site with a large hero image, but it also allows you to highlight other content and resources quite nicely on the home page (in the 3 boxes below the hero image).

As an infopreneur, you could use the top CTA to direct people to your newest, best free resource that serves as an opt-in for your email list. Perhaps it could be something like:

2. Maryanne

The Maryanne theme is perfect for infopreneurs who want to highlight both key blog posts and an email signup area. This is a great theme for when you’re first building up the amount of content you’re creating as an infopreneur. Perhaps you don’t have a major opt-in you want to highlight, or perhaps you don’t have amazing photos other than stock photography yet and thus don’t want a huge hero image of yourself at the top of your site . . . perhaps you only have a handful of blog posts and want them to be the center of attention. This theme is great for that.

Another thing I love about Maryanne is the fact that the author realized the value of multiple page templates. There are tons of way to style your home page, landing pages, and even your primary blog page. Go check out Maryanne’s preview site and click around to all the pages in the top menu to see what I’m talking about.

P.S. This theme also adds an extra layer of epic for those of you who really want to highlight the different categories of information/posts on your site, because it has the second menu where you can help your audience navigate only to the topics they want (ex: beginner’s yoga sequences, advanced yoga sequences, yoga for your back, etc.).

3. Boss Lady

The Boss Lady theme does an amazing job of highlighting your email list signup box well, while still allowing for a separate call to action with the very top bar, an optional compelling message in your hero image, and a blogroll loaded underneath with an attractive sidebar.

This theme definitely strikes me as something you can both start with AND grow with as your information product business expands.

4. Lucie Grasso

The Lucie Grasso theme is beautiful, clean, and helps you get straight to the point. Not only can you epically highlight your blog posts at the top of your site, but you can also develop three attractive info boxes to draw people towards your most important resources, events, or products.

The Lucie Grasso sidebar is very attractive, but the theme author also fives you a full-width home page option without the sidebar. This theme is definitely worth exploring, especially if it already fits with the aesthetic you’re going for.

5. Penryn

I love the Penryn theme for almost all the same reasons I love the Lucie Grasso above. Penryn gives you the unique space to highlight recent blog posts up top, but it also has many options for how you can display blog posts on the rest of your main page.

#Epic.


The Sophie WordPress theme for infoprenurs

6. Sophie

The Sophie theme has so many amazing options.

  • You can style your home page with or without a slider.
  • You can highlight blog posts or you can highlight resources and a primary call to action.
  • It looks great with a shop (where you can sell your infoproducts) integrated in.

Check out the Sophie demo for a better idea of all you can do to highlight your information, content, and passions.


The Fowey WordPress theme for infopreneurs and bloggers

7. Fowey

The Fowey theme is most ideal for an infopreneur who is focused heavily on epic, free content and who desires to get amazing photos to accompany each resource. The unique design of this site will help your content stand out–and the highlighting of the social links up top makes this theme great for infopreneurs who plan to have other platforms be major parts of their brand (ex: a vegan blogger + infopreneur who is mainly building his audience on Instagram but needs a great website to back it up).

8. Monsterra

Monsterra is one of my favorite themes on earth right now. There is a lot to love about this theme as someone who is monetizing information (and the presentation of that information) for a living.

  • The archive page is a beautiful beast of a page. Check it out on the Monsterra demo site.
  • The home page is super smart. You can highlight key blog posts, then include three info boxes that take your audience wherever you first need them to go, but then you can also include a simple, clean message about who you are as a brand or what you provide, followed by more blog posts and a beautiful footer. #WINNING.
  • It’s simple to integrate a beautiful shop–for all your eBooks and email courses.
  • The prominent social media menu up top is killer, but you can also switch out those links for something else.

Bam. That’s a powerful theme.

9. Minimal Chic

Minimal Chic can work well as your infopreneur theme because of its clean layout, simple yet attractive sidebar, and its great use of space (the menu and logo don’t take up a lot of room so it allows you to get directly into your content).

If you like a black + white aesthetic and want to build simple pages that allow your content to take center stage, this could be a great them to check out.

10. Chanel

The Chanel theme has multiple options for how to use your home page, but I’ve chosen to display one of my favorite (in the image above) with the three promo boxes that you can use. If you are an infopreneur with multiple free courses and resources, you might want to consider a theme that allows you to highlight your options clearly so first-time visitors know where to go and can get obsessed with your brand, fast.

I love that the Chanel theme not only has a very attractive sidebar, but that it also presents your blog posts in a great way underneath the top content on the home page.


Soooo, any other great themes for infopreneurs you’d like to suggest? What did you think about some of the ones above? And hey, don’t forget to join us for all the free workshops and resources happening during #InfopreneurMonth.

  1. I love every single one of these themes. They are so clean and functional. I actually just purchased a new theme and redesigned my blog. I didn’t purchase any of these themes, but mine is very similar to some of these. Redesigning your blog is always so much fun!

  2. Stephanie says:

    I’ve been thinking about Boss Lady a lot- wondering if I can remove the header from all of the pages, though. So much to think about- I need to decide already! The theme I originally bought isn’t really what I want, so now I’m restrategizing. Thanks for all of the inspiration!

    • Hi Stephanie
      I’m just a reader but I purchased Boss Lady like 2 days before Regina came out with this list. (lol) You do have the option of not having a header on your pages.

      • Stephanie says:

        Hi Nicole! I went ahead and purchased Boss Lady, but I don’t think I can remove the header without getting crazy into code. I did like the fact that I can change the header for each page- a big plus and made the not being able to remove it completely not that big of a deal!
        Hope this helps!

        • Hmm. Perhaps I don’t understand clearly what you mean. You should definitely reach out to Mel for some help. She’s really responsive and helpful. Good luck.

          I’m really enjoying the theme so far.

  3. Scrivs says:

    Hi Regina,

    Definitely some great looking themes here.

    Interesting to see that most of them still place a big emphasis on having actual blog posts on the homepage as opposed to making the homepage a gateway like you do with your own site.

    I think that will probably be the next evolution of theme design for infopreneurs. Ones that cater specifically to CTAs and guiding readers through a journey as opposed to mixing those elements with a traditional blog homepage.

    • Regina says:

      Yes. I agree with you! I’m definitely waiting for people to develop more of those. They’re hard to find, so I tried to include ones that at least made it somewhat simple to include multiple boxes on the home page instead of just blog posts.

      Please let me know if you find some good ones.

  4. Veronika says:

    Hi Regina,

    I’m using Boss Lady and I can only recommend it. It’s easy to customize and it looks great. Mel (the author) has also done a great job with her explainer videos to make it even easier for those of us who aren’t that tech-savvy. I’m glad you’ve included this theme!

  5. Allie says:

    Ugh. I want them all but would love to pick between Wildfire, Boss Lady or Monstera. Decisions. Decisions…

  6. Tahir Taous says:

    I really like the BossLady theme for for Women Entrepreneurs.

  7. Perfect timing Regina. I’m currently in the process( I’m always in the process lol) of revamping my site for the best user experience. I love Maryanne as I’m working on an offer to grow my mailing list. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Heather L. says:

    Hi, Regina! Heather from Georgia Lou Studios here. So flattered that you included not 1 but 2 of our themes in your list! You made my month!

    I’ve been following your blog for a while and I’m always excited to see your newsletter in my mail and share your articles with our customers in Pinterest.

    I also love the new Wildfire theme! It’s a really great example of a targeted theme style.

    Thanks for all the great content you produce and inspiration your provide for others seeking to create their own dreams!

  9. You’d have saved me some time if you’d written this a month ago! Just teasing. I ended up with a theme by the same designer who made the Maryanne and Sophie themes above (#2 and #6), and am thrilled with the theme and the documentation. Just a footnote: I didn’t want the top of my homepage to feature only my blog posts, and Georgia Lou Studios gives you that option by allowing you to substitute a landing page with widgets. I’m then able to drop in any sliders I want using the slider widget, so I’m able to feature my products there too.

  10. All beautiful themes. I noticed the Montserrat font is common to quite a few of your selections. It’s a lovely elegant font for headings.

  11. Sofie says:

    Maaaaan, I wish I found this post before purchasing Avada. Wildfire looks exactly like what I need right now and so much simpler to put together. Might need to get it anyway.

  12. Erin says:

    You know what’s a bummer? I LOVE the Wildfire theme, but the mobile version is pretty messed up. A lot of cut off text that doesn’t scale to the screen.

    I emailed the author because I’d really love to use it and he said a fix was forthcoming, but still nada has been fixed in the demo.

    • Leslie says:

      You’re right. I bought the Wildfire theme weeks ago, and I still haven’t been able to make anything work on my site. Although the developer was helpful, the backend customization lacks alot. It’s so spread out and hard to work with, especially for beginners like me. I kinda wish I would have bought the boss lady theme, since it’s similar to Wildfire, but better demo’d.

  13. natasha says:

    thnx Regina i like BossLady theme i used that’s nice theme.

  14. I am excited to see this post. I purchased Boss Lady a few weeks ago (just a couple of days before this post came out) and I’m currently working on building my site now. I’m a wordpress novice; it’s always seemed way too cumbersome for me but this has been really pretty easy to work with. I’m more challenged with how I want things to look and to flow, than I am with how to make it work. Which is exactly the kind of problem I would rather have. Mel is really helpful if you have questions too.
    For those who are wondering, she does have a video tutorial that shows you how to create a static homepage and you don’t have to include your blog posts at all if that’s what you prefer. Good luck to everyone.

    Thanks for including my theme in round-up !!! Great list all-around 🙂

  16. Alejandra says:

    Do you guys know if in Boss Lady’s theme homepage you can include a video instead of a picture?

  17. I really like the BossLady theme for for Women Entrepreneurs.. Thank for sharing
