Ready Website Templates Vs Original.
One of the difficulties I face as a web designer is to explain the significance of having a custom website over a template from website like, monster template etc. When dealing with price conscious customers, it becomes a hurdle to explain them the importance of a unique custom website. Although I do it successfully, by informing that other business will likely be using the same template. I would like to know what other arguments can be used. Please elaborate and your experiences as well. Thank you.

In the long run, if they want to add to a pre made template, it could be more costly, particularly if you're dealing with something like a WP template. Some templates are very poorly written and become unstable etc.

> price conscious customers
What is their price range:
If it's a $50 website, tell them you are out of their price range but Square Space might be able to help. If it's a $500 website, make a template or 2 you use such customers and then theme them for each customer.
