    A little bit more expensive but there are some companies who will do bespoke themes - unique to you :)

    When I build for clients, I always use a premiu theme, i use divi by elegant themes, well worth it, as you can build anything using the builders.

    You only get one chance to showcase your services - if visitors see a poor website they will simply leave and not come back. It is a false economy to go cheap and cheerful as opposed to classy and professional.

    agreed, the issue with the webdev market just now is, people are killing the industry with cheap poor websites with a race to the bottom on pricing.

    I have found a designer and coder for my sites and while not the cheapest I know his work is always going to be top class. At the end of the day you get what you pay for :)

    Let's turn that one on its head...

    'I have my own web design business and badly need some photography done. I discovered Tescos were selling cameras for fifty quid. Are they worth the money?'

    The point being that there is rather more to credible, professional, commercial photography than taking a picture. Buyers of creative services tend to be quite 'savvy' and will spot a template site a mile off. It won't necessarily 'kill' your sale, but it will 'place' your services in the buyer's mind. It would be better to find and work with a competent web designer who;

    i) Doesn't undermine other CI professionals by pretending to be a 'Jack of all trades' (the classic mark of the charlatan)
    ii) Doesn't want you to sell your house to pay their fees
    iii) Will probably collaborate with you on future projects
    iv) Will keep you up to speed on all the hidden pitfalls of having/managing a website

    Well, if you want to find responsive html free templates, I'd recommend you this site. It has many nice examples of themes that can be used in your personal site's design. No matter what you want to do, advertsie something, or write your blog, or post yout researches, I guess they have themes for everyone's taste.
