16 Jul / The Many Faces of Website Development
When it comes to website development, you may be faced with several options. Do you go with an independent designer? Maybe a do-it-yourself template? Or is it best to hire a web development firm? It’s important to fully weigh your options before making this pivotal decision.
If you are going the route of a DIY template, keep in mind the importance of brand image maintenance. Your company brand should not only reside in the website header, but should be carried throughout the entire page design (navigation, color palette, typography, etc.). Most site templates limit the amount of customizations available to those without web programming knowledge, making it difficult to customize without the help of a professional coder. An even bigger issue to consider is how that template will grow with your company. It may require further work by an experienced coder in order to stay up-to-date and relevant in the ever-changing world of technology we live and do business within.
Although they may be less expensive, independent designers do not always have the resources to get the job done right and on time. What’s worse is they can often disappear when new opportunities become available to them. If a higher-paying client or full-time job offer comes along, you may find yourself designer-less and starting from scratch.
