What’s Wrong With Using Website Design Templates?
Posted on 31st July 2017 at 16:56
You’ve decided to get a new website. Maybe your current site is getting a bit dated or it’s not responsive and you’re losing customers. You’ve worked out what pages you want and you’ve got your content all organised.
So, the next step is finding the best option. Template websites are really popular – they’re cheap, and simple to set up – so they appear to be a good option if you want to save money and do it yourself. But is it really a good idea? Are you a professional web designer? Do you know how a site should be structured? Have you got design qualifications? What about optimising your site for SEO? Are you happy for your site to look like someone else’s? How important is your image to you – or more importantly, your customers? Have you got the time to devote to building a really good site?
Here are a few reasons why I’d recommend you avoid template websites.
