Whether you have a unique product or distinct business processes, custom website development might be something for you to consider. While using a website template has its advantages, it also has its limitations – a one-size-fits-all approach might just not be right for your business.
Here are 3 advantages of a custom website development solution:
Be as unique as your business.
Whether you want to stand out from your competitors or you have a unique business model that requires unique website functionality and features, a custom website development approach allows you to stand out from the crowd. On the other hand, if you were to use a website template, other businesses (possibly even a direct competitor) could have the same website as you since the template is readily available for purchase by anyone. Custom website development also gives you the opportunity to be more professional in the sense that you can uniquely brand your website with distinct imagery, messaging and brand voice.
A custom website can grow with your business. Developers can add new features as your business evolves, whether its integrations or ecommerce, allowing your website to progress as your business advances. A custom website development solution can also take into consideration long-term growth as oppose to working within the limitations of a website template. In addition, consider on-going website support and maintenance that often comes with a custom solution (whereas support for templates may be limited or simply come to an end).
CMS tailored to your needs.
With a custom solution, web developers are able to customize the Content Management System (CMS) to make it easier for you to update your website content. For example, they can add specific features or shortcuts that will allow you to make updates more efficiently. Being able to easily update your website will help you keep your content current and fresh (vs. having a stale and outdated website).
