Because a bespoke website isn’t right for everyone. Let’s take a look at the difference between bespoke web design services and website design packages.
A bespoke web design service is one that’s been designed and built from scratch so you get 100% of what you want without any constraints, as opposed to a pre-built template that anyone can buy. Another way of putting it, it is like asking a carpenter to make wardrobes that fit the exact dimensions of your bedroom as opposed to buying some from Ikea that is already “pre-made” and can be put in your bedroom easily.
Bespoke websites give you a unique, one of a kind design and – providing your web designer knows their stuff (I promise we do) – gives you a higher quality finish. They’re great when you need fine control over how everything looks or some specific functionality such as custom orders, online design tools, or possible user login access through a different dashboard and also for sites with many pages and information where you really need to manage your content as time-efficiently as possible.
This may be the ideal solution but because bespoke sites are created from scratch, they do take more time and can cost a lot more compared to templates. Whether this represents a good return on investment all depends on the nature and age of your business, who your customers are, and what you want to do on your website. You’ll notice across our website we do mention our aim is to get your website design online to bring you results. That’s because it’s so important that our clients profit from our work. If we fail to do that, we could harm our own reputation.
In some cases, a good quality template can be a better value for money. Other times, it just won’t cut it. It’s simply like the old saying “having the right tool for the right job”.
It’s not always easy to figure out what is right for you and your business especially as the online website world changes on a regular basis. Our general rule of thumb at Bemunchie Online is as follows.
If your budget is under £1000 then you’re probably best to go with a templated website (see our package deals below). As you’ve probably noticed there are many web designers/ companies out there but finding a website design company to provide you the right service as well as understanding your business goals are hard to find.
If your budget is over £1000 then you should get a website that’s built from scratch, and to your specifications.
If you’re still unsure of what is right for your business simply give us a call and we’d be happy to help along with answering any questions you may have.
