    Website design: Which is better, Web templates or Custom design?

    Having a website is a must for every business, no matter whether it is operating online or not. Given the great competition in every industry, you have to have a site that will stand out in the crowd and attract more visitors that can be turned into more customers. The main question in front of every business is whether to use a readymade website design template or get a custom web design by a website design studio.

    The first factors to assess, when comparing the two options, are their features. In general, there are many different types of ready templates that you can use to create a site by yourself. In most cases, these ready to use website builders come with a content management system (CMS) which you can use without technical knowledge. They have customizable layouts as well. It is also standard for these templates to be search engine optimized.

    A custom web design would be easy to manage and easy to change according your needs and requirements. The main additional feature that you will get, when opting for such a product, is a unique theme. Basically, the website design will reflect its purpose and your business goals. For example, if you have a tourism website, you would want it to have a theme that allows a lot of pictures images to be added on the pages. Even though templates are customizable, you might not be able to get the theme you want.

    Another important factor to consider is the quality. Not all templates are of the same quality. Similarly, even if you get a custom web design, this does not guarantee that it will be better than a template. For this reason, you should judge every particular product and service on its own merits. Web templates need not be inferior to custom made products. In many cases, they have similar or even better quality, especially when they are developed by professional web designers and developers.
