You need a classified template and now the hard part; which one to choose.  Colors, styles and layouts galore!  Choosing the right classified template for your business can be fun if you are armed with the right information.


Colors have so many emotions and effect people psychologically.  How they affect your visitors, or what they mean to your visitors, is as important as choosing the right classified template.

Red: Red is one of the most powerful and attention-getting colors. Red symbolizes passion and fire, love and lust. It has been proven to raise blood pressure and cause perspiration. Red reflects energy and can motivate an individual to take action.

Pink is the softer side of red. Pink is romantic, calming and feminine.

Orange: Vibrant and warm, orange is associated with autumn, pumpkins and Halloween. It inherits many of the traits of red, but is less passionate.

Green: Green signifies health and growth (vegetation) and wealth (money). Green symbolizes spring, renewal, and fertility.

Blue: Blue is one of the most calming colors and is associated with the sky and the sea. It is considered to be a “safe” color and signifies intelligence, reassurance, and trust.

Purple: Purple is spiritual and mysterious. Deep purple is associated with royalty and richness while lavender is associated with romance and nostalgia.

Black: Black can represent power, elegance, and sophistication.

White: White represents cleanliness, purity, and spirituality

Grey: Grey can symbolize security, maturity and reliability.

Choosing colors for your website should be a fun undertaking.  Don’t get bogged down in the color meanings as much as what color works for your product.  You want your website to be pleasing to the eye as well as the mind.

Combing colors on your classified template is a good idea as well.  Take blue and red.  The soft blue gives off a peaceful glow while the red says your site has passion.  When combined you are making your website give a statement.
