Custom web design makes your site STAND out!
When it comes to web design, ONE size DOES NOT fit all!
With so many options made available for designing your own web site, why chose custom web design? The benefits of having a web site custom tailored to your business are not limited to having someone else do the work for you. You will end up with something built from the ground up to your specifications and designed to showcase your business on the web.
STAND out from the crowd!
Custom web design is really the best option for any business, large or small. But all too often small business owners cannot afford the high fees that web design firms charge for their services. I can offer the small business owner the same custom design and high level of service you would get at a large web design firm, minus that usually exorbitant price tag.
Doing business on the web has evolved.
The average person no longer uses the big desktop computer. Most people want the mobility offered by laptops or smaller devices such as tablets and smart phones.
There are two types of web design techniques to accommodate all these devices;
Adaptive Design and Responsive Design.
Adaptive designs have multiple templates that are created for a specific device, e.g., a smart phone adaptive template is different from the desktop adaptive template. This allows for faster load times for smaller devices, but it does have its drawbacks; like a much higher price tag for the design.
Responsive design is a fluid web site which accommodates a multitude of media devices. It does not use multiple templates of content optimized to specific devices. Responsive website designs automatically scale up or down to accomadate the device being used to browse your website. It becomes very easy to view the content or navigate a responsive site no matter what device is being used.
Responsive sites automatically scale up or down.
Which is the better choice for you?
Should I choose Responsive Design or Adaptive Design for my site?
As a small business owner, you need to pay close attention to your bottom line. Investing $12,000 - $15,000 or more into a site design for your business is a luxury most small business owners cannot afford. Adaptive design is nice if you can afford to spend those extra $$$ for a designer to create multiple templates of content for different devices. But for most small business sites, a custom made Responsive Web Design is the better, more affordable choice. It's a great way to have a mobile friendly website without having to spend a lot of money.
Whether you choose a Responsive Design or an Adaptive Design, mobile friendly is an absolute must for any small business owner looking for ways to increase the flow of traffic to their website.
