It creates an image in the mind of the visitor(potential customer). If they see this image somewhere else(especially if the other site is in the same business as you) it could lead them to do business with that site because of a mistaken identity. Which means a lost client for you.
Ok, say you don't have a high budget and have to purchase a template(just make sure you include in your future budget savings for a custom website). Remember just because the preview of the template looks good doesn't mean it will work good. Each designer and coder will develop their template differently, so you may get into a bit of a mess when you start adding your content. Some things you may want to check on before purchasing a template is:
1. Refund Policy.
2. Does the website offer support for their templates and is it free?
3. Try to do a search on google and see if there are any reviews about using templates from this site. If there are good or bad reviews out there, then you will be able to find them.
After doing this also make sure that you are going to be able to edit the template without anyone's help. When I say this I mean to make sure the template doesn't have something like flash on it. If it does then you will either have to know how to edit flash(including having the program) or pay someone to make the changes for you. This can add onto as an additional price and raise the cost of your website.
