Do you use templates? Yes, we do. Many website designers state, as an advantage, they don’t use templates. Great, but we’ve found that templates offer a wonderful starting point to build a site tailored for you. There are thousands of excellent graphic designers whose sole job it is to build and create templates. Why not start with some of these designs? Using a template doesn’t mean that you’ll see your exact same site around the Internet. At Spongy Donuts, we often start with a template based on your company’s colors and needs. Then, we customize it and shape it to make it unique for you. You might stumble across another website in your Internet adventures based on the same template we might use for you, but you probably won’t even recognize it as the same. That’s the point. Some large companies hire a team of graphic designers and programmers to create a hundred percent unique site for them. That’s nice, but they’re also paying thousands of dollars to do so. And even then, they’re also sometimes getting a site based on an existing CMS and template. We only charge $350 one time, if you host with us, for a website. That’s a steal if you shop around. But don’t trust us on that, please shop around–just be sure to read the fine print on those other companies’ sites.
