The IM Free Website Templates

Without a doubt, the IM Free website templates are beautiful. They are streamlined and packed with visuals. Many professional images are available, but users can also upload their own photos to further customize their website. Best of all, IM Free's templates are available without any charge. So, if you want to build a website for you wedding or if you're an entrepreneur with little capital, IM Free is right up your alley.

Many website builders are available. While some of them allow users to create a website for a fee, others do so without charge. On any of these website builders, it's easy for novices to feel overwhelmed. Sometimes, there are too many choices. People also may feel lost if they have too many tools and options that could be added to their website. While someone more experienced with website building might appreciate these options, it can all seem like too much for someone who is creating their first website.

That is where IM Free really excels. Even someone who didn't imagine they could build a website when they rolled out of bed this morning can finish and publish a sophisticated-looking website before they get back into bed tonight. Using IM Free really is that easy.

Pricing and Packages

Of course, that simplicity does come with a price. IM Free just doesn't have all of the bells and whistles that are basic components of other website-building services. If you're looking to publish a basic website that looks like you spent a fortune on having it designed, IM Free is perfect for you. However, if you're looking for a website that has any kind of advanced functionality, then you may be better off with another website builder.

For instance, one of IM Free's biggest problems is that it does not provide functionality for ecommerce. In other words, if you're looking to sell products online, this probably isn't the website builder for you. You may be able to embed an external widget from PayPal or Shopify in order to gain this functionality on an IM Free-designed website. However, it's important to keep in mind that these widgets may have to be purchased, and it may require some more advanced expertise to get them installed on the website.

Features and Functionality

Nonetheless, IM Free is a great choice for several reasons. Its templates are gorgeous. More than 70 styles are available, and the preview of each style on the IM Free website shows how the page would look on a computer screen and on a smartphone. All of the templates are rich with imagery and guaranteed to impress any visitors. Although the existing templates are wonderful, you don't have to be locked into them. You also have the option to start from a blank template.

IM Free classifies their templates by categories like "Law & Finance," "Weddings," "Health-Wellness" and "Tech," among others. This makes it easy for users to locate templates that are likely to satisfy their requirements. Of course, users may be able to shape a template from one category to fit into another with a bit of effort.

IM Free's templates are pre-populated with sample content, which makes it easy for users to create their own text to replace what's already there. Users can also upload their own pictures or change the colors to suit their preferences. Within a remarkably short time, the website can be published and active. Clearly, this process is not going to result in the most original, highly customized website of all time, but it may still be an ideal solution for someone who is in a rush and doesn't have a sizable budget for web design. The templates at IM Free are so visually sophisticated that visitors may very well think that a website created with this service was actually custom built by a web designer.

People who are new to website building will appreciate how easy to use IM Free is. Editing the pre-populated content is as easy as clicking on the text with a mouse and typing in the new text. Similar point-and-click functionality is available for changing the pictures. However, it's important to realize that this is not a drag-and-drop website builder. This means that if the user wants to move an element from one place to another, they can't simply drag and drop it. They may have to completely remove it, and then re-insert it in the desired location. This may result in a loss of text or other data.

It's also important to note that if a user ever decides that they'd like to try a different template, there is no way to simply switch between templates without having to start over from scratch. Similarly, all websites created from the free templates include a highly visible advertisement for IM Free at the bottom of each page.

For providing a remarkably quick and easy way to publish a visually striking website, IM Free is hard to beat. It may have limited features, but its affordability and ease of use make it a prime choice for budget-conscious users.
