Let’s face it, everyday more and more of these “template website distributors” are popping up all over the place that basically have the same templates for sale at different prices. Is there something wrong with this picture? Don’t get me wrong, the templates themselves look great and all, but what customers don’t realize is there is a catch to these “templates”.
– The price. Yeah is says “Only $65 for this template!” but what people don’t realize is that there is still a lot of work involved. I myself have seen a few of these “flash templates” in my time and I will tell you first hand, they aren’t as easy as they look!…
– Are they Unique? NO! They are exactly what they are called: Templates. Woulnd’t you image that if the template was such a great design, that you aren’t the only one who purchased it? There is no real way to tell how many people before you really have the template.
– “It says Unique/Custom Template for $2500” – What that really means is that they will stop selling it on “Their” site. Who knows what other websites will continue to sell it.
– “So now I bought my Zipped up Template, now what?” – Now the fun begins! First you need a domain name, then hosting (which if you are doing any sort of credit card processing or merchant account, now you will an SSL Certificate on top of hosting), next you will need to either learn how to design, programming, CSS, CMS, etc…. or hire a website development company.
