Both options have very different price points for specific reasons. A web design template is usually very affordable, even when you add in the costs of extra plug-ins or if you choose one of the more intricate options. You can expect a custom web design to cost a lot more than a web design template purchased online.
Custom web designs take a lot longer to develop. Our team will meet with you, determine your needs, trends in your industry and work with you to develop a custom web design that incorporates all the features that you want. This takes time, energy and the labour of more than one person, which is why it costs more than a template that’s used by several businesses.
Uniqueness and memorability
With a custom web design, even though the price is higher, you pay for uniqueness and memorability. With this option, your design doesn’t exist. It is created in consultation with you and after our researchers and brand experts determine what’s effective for your industry and brand. You’ll never find a website that is similar to your. It is built with the idea that customers should be impressed with our brand’s reflectivity in the design and its uniqueness. This is what keeps your brand awareness consistent, and your base loyal.
A web design template was created, not with your business in mind, but with the goal of appealing to several businesses so that the supplier can make a profit. This alone signifies the lack of creativity and uniqueness in the ensign.
The development cycle of both mirrors what we’ve discussed in our previous points. A custom web design, because of its research and development approach, has a much longer cycle than a web design template which can be downloaded for your business almost instantly.
While you may have to input the content and code some of the website yourself using a template, it is much faster than a custom web design’s cycle. However, the results are not as effective due to a template’s one-size-fits-all approach.
Though there is certainly room for some customisation with a web design template – usually in the form of plug-ins and added features – you are severely limited. Some features may not be compatible with your template or simply can’t work with your web design’s structure. This is the risk you take with a template.
However, a custom web design is just that – customised. Any feature, structure or effect you’d like for your design is incorporated by our team once we believe that it is effective for your business.
We hope that this makes your decision a bit easier. If you think that a custom web design is the way for you, then contact Adcreators.
