What more would you expect if their websites are only worth $699?
Selling websites built on purchased templates is not uncommon.

I’d even say it’s the smarter option. There are tons of resources already available on the internet and if you know your way around you can save yourself ‘re-inventing the wheel’ so many times just buying little pieces of IT resources for a small cost here and there as opposed to spending the time creating it all over again.

I do agree though that as a web design company, these resources should be used as a base to save doing a great chunk of the work but then adding in your own flavours to suit the customer needs is what will set your web design service apart.

So I wasn’t really sure why someone posted html from the website of the original poster saying that they’ve used a readymade template. It doesn’t prove the point that they’re not capable of doing custom development.

And to be in line with the topic of discussion, in my opinion I’d say the poster’s website is modern (whether it’s professional or not is a point of comparison).
– Clearly laid out menu and call to actions
– Mobile friendly

Facebook is great too as it provides the quick and informal way of connecting with your potential or existing customer base.

Those would be my thoughts in the discussion.
