First of all, it’s true that theme demo site is usually the best way a theme can work or look. Theme providers put their optimum efforts to make the demo site look appealing by making the best use of the provided features. It is because the demo site is a major selling point for WordPress themes as users generally pick a theme based on how demo site looks.
But to their disappointment, users find a web page almost blank which looks nothing like the theme demo after activating the theme. It is quite frustrating, especially for the beginners who now have to start with looking for documentation file or theme tutorials. This is when theme demo import option comes handy.
