I’ll start with the most sought-after section for creating beautiful and functional — WordPress.
Everything for WordPress
- WordPress themes and templates. Here you will find quite a large library for more than 20 niches. Almost 1000 WordPress themes will help to create a website from scratch from blogs to business portfolio.
- Plugins. Additional modules and extensions will help add new functionality to the site, make it more convenient and profitable. The subscription also includes plugins for PrestaShop CMS.
- WooCommerce templates. These products can be used to organize an online store of any goods: from clothes and gadgets to furniture and cars. Select and edit a ready-made directory page structure or create it yourself, without delving into the HTML-layout. Then simply fill out the relevant pages and product cards with your original content.
- Elementor templates. Elementor is ideal for creating and editing original pages by easy dragging and dropping. Most of all, it works great for landing pages, corporate web projects, etc.
CMS and HTML templates
Content management systems make it easy to administer websites even for beginners. ONE membership by TemplateMonster includes layouts not only for WordPress but also for such CMS as:
All of them are also popular in the eCommerce business. Each of them has its pros and cons in creating online stores. ONE membership offers hundreds of templates for each CMS and any taste.
And many users still love to use HTML-based website themes for websites and webpages. They do a good job of creating landing pages. Besides, there are beautiful HTML templates in Russian, that are easy to adapt to almost any task. In addition, in this section, you will find HTML layouts for mailing lists and admin dashboard.
High-quality thematic photos are always necessary to fill the slides. ONE subscription has a photo bank available, which includes almost 2 million excellent stock photos. You can easily find the one you need by keyword.
Such an opportunity really makes life easier. Especially when you consider that in photo banks the price for 1 photo varies from $1 to $5.
For example, at Depositphotos the cheapest option is 10 photos per month for $10. For each next photo, you need to pay an extra $1. If you need more photos, then you will have to pay more. So, for 75 images per month, you will have to pay $69.
With ONE subscription per month, you will spend only $14.5 and at the same time, you can upload an unlimited number of photos.
For presentation creators, the subscription includes slide templates for PowerPoint, Keynote, and Google Slides. The total number of developments exceeds 4600 copies. There are slides for all occasions. Using the filter, you can select templates for a specific topic: business services, photography, electronics, food, and restaurant, etc. All presentations are easy to edit and customize to fit your needs.
Each presentation includes:
- 30+ slides 16: 9;
- 2+ color schemes;

- Free fonts;
Other Graphic Elements
This is the most creative section. It contains a lot of visual materials for solving various problems on sites, in social networks, printing and more. All solutions are created by professionals in the field of design and look very modern.
For those who are engaged in presentations on an ongoing basis, the presence of graphic packages with icons, patterns, infographics, and illustrations will not be out of place. With their help, you can decorate your slides, add dynamics, show imagination and creativity.
Here you can find:
- Thousands of PSD Templates and Icon sets;
- Hundreds of Certificates, Illustrations, UI elements, and After Effects Intros;
- Dozens of Fonts, Resume Template, Logo Templates, Social Media templates, and other infographic elements.
What License Do All Products Have?
Here is another advantage of ONE subscription. All products have an unlimited annual license. This means that you can use all website themes and templates for multiple projects as often as you like for a year. So, there is no need to buy eCommerce website templates for example, which is very convenient.
The good news is that the website will still work even after the “unlimited license period” has expired. All website themes and templates downloaded under unlimited licenses are valid and will be updated regularly in any case.

Who needs ONE? Examples of Using a Subscription
Two examples of people who will benefit from the ONE membership.
For freelancers, developers, designers. If you provide digital types of services, then you can select a certain number of high-quality products from ONE. So, you can use them to provide services for website creation, business cards, banner ads, logos, etc. using these templates.
For bloggers and business owners. The possibilities are not limited to website creation. There is still something to do:
- Business cards;
- Covers for social networks (FB, YouTube, Twitter, etc.);
- Banners for social networks;
- Template for the site’s posts, etc.
By the way, any of these tools can be a great idea to work full-time on the internet. If without experience collecting all this material on the Internet or ordering from freelancers, then it will take a lot of time and effort.
So, ONE service is when you pay once a year or once and for a lifetime, and you don’t worry at all about website design, social networks, presentations, and other design elements. And if something went wrong and help is needed, there is where to turn and you can be sure that you will get an answer.
With this service, you can download a ready-made solution and free yourself from what there is no time to do, and be inspired to create something of your own. And thanks to the service, there is a chance to see the use of familiar tools, elements in an original way. So, you can pleasantly surprise the customer.
Is it worth buying?
It is only up to you. The easiest way to see what products you need, whether they are included in the subscription, and if the total amount of the products is less than $229. Thus, the subscription will be a profitable investment for you. Besides, you will get access to the ONE product database for the whole year and you will certainly download something else.
This offer will be useful to almost everyone whose professional activity is related to online — whether it is custom-made website development, web design or even Internet marketing. For instance, I plan to use it for blogging.
