    Do u guys still make moolah of templates by saying to the customer to choose a template and u redesign it a lil bit?

    If so, do u just send the people to monstertemplate and tell them to report the templatenumber back at ya?

    No, I dont tend to use them often. If a customer really wants to use a template I might from time to time. But generally there is no money in it, because they see the cheep price of the template and dont understand the work involved in setting it up.

    What I may do occasionally is use a flash animation or specific element from a template that I like in a design of my own...

    Cause i am going to target people that have no knowledge, time, and giving them a site for like 250usd. There is good money in it if you u can flip it like 10 times a month.

    I am trying to build a portfolio of templates to use, what I am looking for is like a turnkey site already full of templates.
    But I cannot find it.

    I end up trying to say away from them In the long run you end up spending more time making the changes the customer wants. Its just faster for me to do a mock up send it over get the approval and be done with the site.

    To take on a customer when they sign the contract they have to turn in the number of pages they want, content and any pics. when I have all that is when i will start the project. this stops all the going back and saying i need this and that.
