Weighing Your Options: Templates or Customization

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – You’ll find just about anything and everything in the internet. In order to reach out to a wider market, companies are developing websites; the virtual space where people can easily access information. Having a website also increases a company’s success rate especially if it has proven to be a helpful tool for customers who are looking for quick answers. Before building your site, it is best to know the options available. The question is: how much are you willing to spend? Budget plays a factor when it comes to website building but the good news is that you can make a choice: go for the ready-made web templates or invest on building a customized website.

Website Templates

Web design and development companies offer web templates that can be purchased and immediately use. This is an ideal choice for businesses that aims to provide information and do not intend to establish a site that will engage in e-commerce. Ready-made designs are already pro forma and good to go. It is simple, easy to build and requires little maintenance. If you are on a time crunch and needs to launch your site right away, then this is the option for you.

Looking at its disadvantages, a ready made template is not unique; chances are hundreds of companies out there are also using the same template. This limits your capabilities when it comes to maximizing your website’s profit making potential. Another downside of a pre made web design is that you’ll need to always contact its developer if you wish to make additions or changes to the website.

Customized Website

Utilizing the services of professional website builders and designers will provide you company with a competitive edge. With a custom made website, developers can transform you ideas and give you a website that adheres to your standards and specifications. Upgrading and making the necessary changes in order to meet the demands of the market is also easier because you have the capabilities to manage your own website.

Two things that are considered as the downside of a customized website are money and time. A lot of time is spent in developing a custom made website, making it not ideal for businesses that are looking to launch their website in a day or two. Also, enough resources and funding should be allotted while the site is still on the development stage.

The decision on whether to opt for a website template or custom made one should depend on your budget, specifications and the needs of you target market.
