When you’re busy launching a new online business you don’t have a lot of spare time to design and build a website from scratch. That’s why so many online entrepreneurs turn to website templates to build a website for their services, courses, blog, biz info, and more. Website templates give you the ability to customize a strategic website in a shorter amount of time and with no coding required.
What are website templates?

They give you the ability to customize the brand elements (colors, fonts, imagery, copy…) but skip the coding and design work. Website templates are typically drag and drop so you can easily build a professional website that is optimized for conversion.

Websites and landing pages are very different functionally and we’ll get to that, but first let’s go over the basics.
What is a website?

So let’s talk about a big one: marketing vs branding.
You’ve probably been hit with a lot of buzzwords like ROI, synergy, retargeting… and so many others that by now you’ve created your own little biz-lingo dictionary. And it’s also likely that marketing and branding are the two words you see and hear most often.
Marketing and branding often get lumped together, but they are very different.
Think of it like this: marketing is how you attract your audience and branding is how you convert them into loyal clients.
Which comes first?
Some entrepreneurs believe that the first step to building a successful business is to immediately start marketing their offers… but, without a solid branding strategy, it’s very difficult...
