Some Guy's Franchise

Paid hosting with out of-the-box templates

This is a lot like buying into a franchise like McDonald's or Mr. Fish Taco.





  • Lots of templates to choose from
  • Things look pretty good
  • No advertising
  • Proven systems that work
  • You get all their strengths


  • It's still not exactly your space
  • You need to follow their rules
  • Tough to change in fundamental ways
  • All the good looking pizazz and features sometimes costs more than making something custom
  • If they go out of business you may lose all your hard work
  • You get all their weaknesses
