Give Some Time For Changes
Nevertheless, on the other hand, if a web template you buy is something that is suitable but their are some changes that must be made to fit in your website’s theme, then you will need to give some time to make the necessary changes.

You can put images of your own business persons or some product and replace the original header for your business site. However, do only change the necessary changes and don’t redesign the whole template.
