Keep It Basic, Baby!

I just got this incredible email from Basic Templates, and couldnt agree with them more! I just had to share it:

Internet Marketer's Dream

When you think of a dream, the first thing that comes to mind is something which is not real, but that's not the case with the good news we have for you today. The content in this email is real. It's honest, and it's blunt. It's necessary to say. Some of you may be shocked. Some of you may be enraged, because we let the cat out of the bag. Some of you may disagree on the surface but deep down you know it is true.

If you are serious about your online business or have been operating a website for some time, you know that designing your site is the easiest part of all. And it should be. You have far more serious business development activities that need your attention, time and energy.

If you are one of the lucky few, after owning and operating a website for awhile, a light bulb goes off in your head. One day you realize that the design of the website is not as important as the message you are conveying. After all, you want to communicate with your customers through your website. You don't want to decorate for your customers through your website.

Then many of those few who "get it" become angry. They are angry at the web designer or template designer who sold them a graphic intensive design when in fact it was the last thing they needed to ensure their website's effectiveness.

They bite the bullet and dig in their heels while they crack open that dusty do-it-yourself HTML software manual. After a couple of short hours, they get even angier. Why? Because they discovered that not only were the sold the absolute last type of design they needed, they were overcharged by 15X or more what they should have been charged. Web design isn't rocket science or brain surgey. You don't need a college degree in website design to "get it". Oh Uh ... some designer just lost another customer - forever.

Then with this newly found knowledge, they discover the simple truth that any marketing student already knows. Marketing their website is far more important and brings in the real m0ney. To prove it, visit any successful Internet Marketer's website. You'll instantly wonder why it was designed so basic - so simple. If you visited it before you acquired your newly found knowledge, you might have thought that this marketer didn't "get it". When in fact, the opposite is true. He/she was happily raking in heaps of cold cash while you were trying to decide which graphics you wanted.

That's when your reality changes - permanently. Someone tells you about a different type of template designer called You are reluctant because you were burned pretty badly, but the price is right and so you try it. Within minutes you realize that there really are web template designers that "get it" too. You have found your dream - or so you thought it couldn't get any better ... until today ...

Today has put together an Internet Marketer's Dream package of templates that will likely be the only designs you will need for a very long time. And if $5.00-each wasn't low enough before, they are 0ffering it at a reduced licensing fee for a limited time.

Does this scenario sound familiar to you? If you are one of many 1000s of happy's customers in the past 11 years, it should. If you are a potential customer scoping us out because you were burnt by another template designer, your day just got better and there is lots of hope at the end of your cash tunnel.

For the next 16 hours you can take advantage of our Internet Marketer's Dream package and/or 11 other special 0ffers we have developed just for you during this Sales.Event. Quite frankly you too will soon discover what 1000s of return customers have found out years before you. We "get it" and we are happy to serve you and help you "get it" too.
