In today’s age of web development, customers looking for a website have a lot of decisions to make when it comes to the best choices available for their business. There are numerous avenues for getting a website developed, everything from having one custom designed & developed, choosing an already-designed theme, or choosing to build your own website either from scratch, or from a “do it yourself site like Wix, Squarespace, etc.
Why Custom Web Design will Always be Appealing
Although on occasion we’ll create a website for a client who requests a template-driven theme like WordPress, the majority of our work and what has helped us stand out when delivering our service is custom web design.
Custom design equates to us taking a completely blank canvas and designing the mockup of what your website will look like. Colors, menu and page layout, etc.
Once the design is approved, we then build the site out by hand ensuring that we have full control of the page’s code for optimal use of basic SEO practices and layout changes as needed.
Unlike WordPress or other template-driven sites, our clients never have to be concerned with security issues or updates that could potentially tank the site, as going the custom route is usually a lesser risk.
Custom web design also will give you a more custom look and while it does on average cost more for a custom designed website, you can really tell the difference when it comes to quality & detail when compared to a pre-made theme.
If the client’s budget aligns for a custom site, then it is almost always worth the investment to help create the best marketing experience for their customers as possible.
