Templates are easy to use. You can find paid and free templates that let you customize the design without knowing a single line of code. Note that not all templates offer this. If you want easy customization, be sure that your intended template purchase has this feature.
For anyone that's involved in business, documentation and invoicing especially can become a real tedious part of being self employed. For the the most part, unless you have the luxury of a hired assistant, having to do constant invoicing and book-work, can really slow you down. This is why it makes perfect sense to use a remade invoice template. Not only can you save a great deal of time, by using one, but it allows you to formalize the process and apply a more uniform framework to your invoicing format. This not only makes your invoices easier to understand, but it helps at tax time also, as your tax agent will have a better understanding of your paperwork.
No matter how much you and your office manager love to play with your computers, you will save a great deal of time and money, and you will get far better results from downloading templates instead of creating your own.
These days, more and more templates such as WordPress themes, Joomla templates, and website builders include search engine optimization configuration options. This is incredibly helpful so that you can optimize your website from the start. Many website developers and designers build nice sites, but don't pay any attention to search engine optimization (I know from personal experience - my first website I hired out had no SEO work done on it at all. Yet I assumed when the site would be built that it would be built so that it would get search engine traffic).
Then there are the checklists. It may seem superficial, but entire businesses have collapsed because there wasn't a checklist handy when needed. Collect checklists for everything from franchising to trademarks and dealing with the taxman, customer lawsuit or a subpoena. The only option to not having checklists is to keep an expert for each crucial issue close at hand and ready to offer advice, if the business can afford it.
There are no barriers to entry for web developers - anyone can put up a website and get business. When hiring a web developer, you get what you pay for. Besides, unless you instruct otherwise, chances are your developer will use a template - something you can do and save the hundreds or thousands of dollars you pay simply for a template set up by a website developer.
