Pros & Cons

With Zerif theme’s one-page layout, your site visitors can easily find their way around your website. The Homepage itself is segmented to highlight all the necessary information that a user is looking for. The homepage section of the Pro version includes:

  • Header and hero image
  • Service/Product features
  • Call to action
  • Portfolio
  • About section with skill graphs and client logos
  • Team member profiles with social media links
  • Testimonials
  • Pricing table, package comparison section
  • Ribbon buttons
  • Blogs/latest news
  • Contact form
  • Google Maps section
  • Contact details and social media links

You can reorder the sections, customize the content of each section, and change the colors. Except for the customizable contents, Zerif Lite doesn’t have access to these other options as well as the Google Maps and Pricing sections.

For the background, you can either download a video or use images – tick the Parallax effect to add more depth and a 3D touch to the page.

However, some sections like the client and team profile sections can only be customized through widgets, which is available on the WordPress dashboard.

Nevertheless, the editing interface is intuitive and easy to use with a live preview of your website. It is well-documented.

If you prefer Zerif Pro, you can purchase the theme at a starting price of $89, which also allows you to have access to 30+ themes for 12 months.

Conclusion

Zerif theme creates an awesome website that fulfills your brand, business or service requirements without compromising the UX. For a free WordPress theme, Zerif Lite is surprisingly loaded with features that premium ones have. You can have a beautiful one-page website without shelling out a dollar.

If this theme doesn’t seem to align with your goal, there are good alternatives, such as Avada and Mesmerize. They’re premium themes with out-of-the-box features, too, but more budget-friendly.

    Zerif is fine. I installed it when I first set up my blog. It’s simple but elegant. Try Avada also.
