What to Choose: Custom Web Design or Template

October 4, 2019 by kidd

For various reasons, a lot of customers tend to have a hard time deciding whether to purchase a template or build a customized website. They both have their merits and demerits.

Getting a template will surely cut on the time the website needs to be delivered, but on the other hand, it doesn't give the client the best of experiences. Named below are some of the reasons as to why a custom web design is the best way forward.

  1. Adaptability

One of the best pros of a custom design is its capability to suit your business needs and requirements. Unlike templates, there will be no need of purchasing plug-ins hence incurring more costs. This is because all key factors will be considered during the development of the website.

Branding can also be incorporated better with a custom design as it's considered before the start of the job. The testing of the site on multiple browsers will also make the website work excellently on all the search engines.

  1. Unique Web Design

Templates are free for purchase by anyone. It, therefore, becomes easy to have a site with similarities to yours. The best way to avoid this issue is by customizing your website.

Your site will be unique and separated from the rest due to the implementation of your ideas. Your personality and company culture can, therefore, be projected on the final product once the website is complete.

  1. Manageability

Managing the website is also another significant point of interest. You may require the services of the template provider to manage their site. It's because they have more knowledge than you regarding the site.

It is therefore advisable to do a custom web design for your site for easy management. It's because you have the documentation and full information about it.

Choosing the best method to use is still a matter of considerable debate, but should you decide to put the client's interest first, then a custom design will be the best method to use. Please contact us for more information on this & to hire us for your website design and development.
