Professionals around the world try to offer a good looking website to their clients at very low prices because of competition. In the development process professionals usually use templates to save their time and money as there are myriad of templates available on the internet these days. Some templates are free and some are paid where as some are custom made templates which are designed to meet specific requirement of client. So question arises whether paid templates are better or free templates. These questions are legitimate and deserve a separate article below.
Free website templates can actually be relied upon to create your whole website around, but you need to know if they are good as a long-term option. What you need to do is examine the benefits and the negatives. Now some of these are going to be quite obvious, but other aspects are going to get overlooked. Let's start with the number one benefit, and that would be money. When you decide to go with free website templates you will not have to spend so much money on website design and development.
As mentioned earlier, web themes are the better options for building an attractive website within just two days and the expenses associated with themes are also lesser. Rather than hiring a professional website designer, which costs more, it is better to go for paid themes, which is a one-time investment. However, if a person searches for premium website templates with some layouts and formats in his mind, he might not be able to get the required format since different templates follow different formats. In this case, a designer can help the person, rather than a template.
Procure: This is where you go out there and get the best Joomla templates that you can get for your website. There are technically 3 types of Joomla templates that are available to you, going by the cost of getting them and the resulting quality. (Yes, the old 'you get what you pay for' saying applies here, too). These templates are: a. Free Joomla Templates: These are the ones that are out there that anyone can install and use on their sites. They mostly come with strings attached. They are either ad-supported, require live links to the template designer's website or a combination of both. b. Commercial Joomla Templates: These are for sale and have none of the strings associated with free Joomla templates attached. You can buy commercial (or premium) Joomla templates one at a time, in packages or through monthly subscriptions to Joomla Template Clubs. The commercial ones also have more template customization options than the free ones and usually look and feel far more professional than the free ones for obvious reasons: you paid money for these ones. c. Custom-Designed Joomla Templates: This is when you approach a template designer, give them information about the what you need and have them make a Joomla template just for you. This usually costs a little higher than the commercial templates as they are tailored to your particular needs and custom-made for your delight and ego, so to say.
Free Joomla templates are available for those who need to make websites or blogs. These templates works in way that they guide the user on how to go about the whole process effectively. In fact, it is believed that you can be able to create your website or blog in less than an hour as long as you have relevant information on how to go about it.
A purchased template must be edited in order to fill in your own content, images, logo, contact information, etc. Custom flash or HTML coding should also be done in order to make the template truly match the theme of your website. Many of the web templates you found on different sites might look similar to a certain point, and are often overwhelmingly corporate feel. Also remember you are not the only custom who purchase the web template unless you buy an exclusive license of the template (costs thousands!). And even if you do, prior to your purchase other customers might have already purchased that web template and have used it. This might not be a great problem for a personal home page. But many corporate or serious Internet business websites would need template customization beyond just replacing text and images.
