๐Ÿ˜  Haters

โ€œTemplates have limitations. Itโ€™s better to find a SaaS for your needs.โ€
Most SaaS are closed-source businesses. They too have limitations. But you canโ€™t tailor their interface to your needs.

โ€œItโ€™s hard to differentiate.โ€
While the core is the same. You can add a โ€œserviceโ€ to stand out. Itโ€™s harder to copy a 1:1 call, cohort-based course or community.

โ€œThese templates are easy to clone.โ€
Second Brain is a popular template type. Easlo sold 4,640 copies. Thomas Frank made $760,000 with Ultimate Brain. Simon sold 1,902 copies of the Life OS bundle. Do not fear the competition. Distribution is what matters.
