    I want to offer my clients a website design service but the problem is

    I use moonfruit and Wix to design my sites and their templates are all online how to i get my client to select a template for his business without giving away the websites that i will use to create their site?? :confused:

    i could use artisteer or xsite pro but they are kinda basic and bloggy looking

    Artisteer is great, only the standard template "suggestions" look basic and bloggy looking. You can make pretty much anything you want with it once you get a handle on how the tool works. There are many many websdiesgn companies out there that are now using artisteer to create "custom" websites and you would never know it.

    Not to be rude, but for someone selling ahem professional websites artisteer would be the equivalent of using microsoft paint to touch up snooki's disgusting body for a photo spread.

    The sites simply dont look good....Invest a straight 3 weeks of learning photoshop and dreamweaver and you will make sites that impress :)

    Yeah, lying to your clients about your design skills is going to hurt your credibility with them.

    Save yourself the embarrassment and just send them the moonfruit link.

    Select 3 or 4 templates yourself, and take screenshots of them, then crop out the bits that identify them as moonfruit or wixx, and just show them to the customer as JPGs?
