The first website that was ever launched into cyberspace was done by a developer named Berners-Lee in 1991 from a lab in the Swiss Alps. In the last 27 years, we’ve seen it evolve along with technology and become the websites we love to visit every day.
There is a lot of conflicting information when it comes to websites. One thing that a lot of people tend to differ about is whether you should use templates or opt for a custom WordPress design. Now there are many design platforms to use but WordPress is a definite favourite. Around 30% of all websites are hosted on the WordPress platform.
To get back to the template vs custom debate, below are some myths we would like to debunk so you can make an informed decision.
1. Custom Websites Are Expensive
It’s no secret that custom website designs will need an investment on your part. But when you hire a professional it software development company, you get value for money. A design that will knock your socks off and after sales support that won’t make you want to pull out your hair out of frustration.
2. A Template Works Fine
There are many templates available, even on WordPress. And depending on your budget and your end goal, a template might be fine for a while. But if your goal is success we recommend you spend a few extra rands and get the website that will impress your visitors and bring in sales. Plus, how will you dazzle your audience if your website looks the same as every other website they visit?
