Those of you who have read our "Madezi"
series of books may be wondering why I've created
some free website templates on this site after giving
warnings about using them ... and that's exactly what
we gave - "warnings" - we
have never ever said "don't use them!"
Templates can be brilliant for anyone who lacks
time, design ability or the inclination to
build their own site - and Mini-Site Templates
can be really useful for testing a new product,
creating individual websites for each of your
products, promoting Affiliate
products or for using as a
"leader" to your main website.
For those of you who have not read our "Madezi"
books, the reason we give a "warning"
about using "FREE" website templates
is to draw to your attention that, in reality,
nothing is ever "free" - there is
always a cost somewhere!
Creating a website can be very time consuming
so, rightfully, the designers of the "free
websites" need to re-coup
the cost of the time spent and be "paid" for their

template back to the designers own website in a bid to attract
new customers for their designs. I think you'll agree
that's a fair exchange for giving you their time and
expertise - right?
OK - and this is where the warning comes in - some designers
are not that subtle and carry several references to
their own design website - even to the point of embedding
their links so you cannot remove them. The person
(could be you) who's trying to build their business with the
"free template" is compromised (sometimes without
even knowing it) - that's not really playing the game fairly
Sometimes the designer link reads something like this "Free
Website provided by XYZCompany.com" -
this doesn't do much for the user's credibility in the eyes of
That's not the worst though - sometimes a
"free" website template carries actual advertising -
not just a subtle link - but some blatant, in your face,
advertising - and not always from the designers own company.
What the designer has done in this instance is "sold an
advertising spot" on their template to an outsider
company. If your visitor clicks on the
advertisement, the browser will then show the advertisers
website - and your visitor will have forgotten all
