Website design. Ecommerce design. Wordpress or Content management design. Template design.
The average person often has an idea of what they want, but not always what they need or how to go about getting a good site design in place. There are numerous options when it comes to a web site design. The option that works best for the client is determined by an information gathering process.
Custom web design
- this is the best choice if you do not want to upload, add images, code, or maintain any part of your website yourself. Custom design includes the full design, implementation, routine maintenance, and any additions made to the web site over time. All the work is done by the web designer or company, and the client merely supplies what is requested such as web copy, photos, existing logo designs, etc. A custom designed site can be created for any small business, commercial enterprise, charitable organization or personal need.
- if you plan to sell anything online, this is the kind of site you will need. Depending upon your budget and your needs, you might also need an SSL certificate, a payment processor and a shipping method. There are many ways to setup an online storefront, and again, how the designer goes about creating your storefront, is dependent upon the information gathered from the client. Storefronts can be created that fit every kind of budget.
Content management design
- if you would like to be able to do updates yourself and have a lot more control over your site, this is the best choice for you. There are many, many options for every size budget. One can go with a custom look or opt to license a premade design with the addition of web hosting.
- if you are comfortable working with CSS, HTML, XHTML, or HTML5 and can implement your own design, this is a great option for you. You get all the benefit of a custom design minus the price. Templates can be simple or complex, it all depends upon your budget.
