It will make sense to go ahead and create some content (posts, pages, products, menus, etc.) before you begin configuring the theme, so you can see the impact your changes have.

You can also start with demo content if you don’t want to create any actual content just yet.

WooCommerce offers shop demo content you can simply import. We also offer demo content for your blog and for the widgets in our Theme Frankfurt Demo.
