    Webmaster's Dilemma: Ready Made Templates or Start from Scratch?

    hi guys,
    im in doubt if any of you webmasters here who are in real business use ready made downloaded templates and mod it OR you guys do them from scratch for your clients? the web platform that i am referring to is sites that uses Wordpress or Joomla as CMS.

    im torn between ethics and convenience regarding this issue. please advice.
    thanks

    Well, if you found any nice template and MOD it to your own design, there is nothing wrong about it. If you can design from scratch, then it is the best. If can't, you can try to look out others' design and try to get inspiration from it. Talking about ethics, erm.... just copy some small parts of others' design will do. No one ask you to take others' design and name it under you.

    Just my two cents

    thats the thing. the question i arise here is due to the fact that if im gonna kick start my own business i have to make sure that this practise is ok. i agree to an extent that a web project can be time consuming and building everything from scratch is very time consuming.

    i would welcome more replies on this tackling the issues of ethics.
    thanks for the replies

    Either one are less important. Look at the values of conversion this website can deliver

    I normally design a website from scratch. However, nothing is wrong to use ready made template if you are such in hurry to establish your website or your client.

    It's up to you on either you want to invent the wheel or reinvent it! If the template(either from scratch or mod) superior in term of SEO, go for it.

    Either one are less important. Look at the values of conversion this website can deliver
    Commercial website is all about conversion, I agree with that one.

    Generally:

    Excellence SEO>Good traffic>better conversion
