When it comes to creating or redesigning websites we look out for the best available and affordable options.

It’s obvious we want an affordable option and save some money.

However, while saving money we are most likely compromising our online needs. Understanding that having a good online presence will help you lay down a good impression for your business/clinic that leverages your efficiency is very important.

 

Do you think that a template based website can be a successful model for your business?

Just because it looks like it fits in your budget does not mean that it fits your online goals. A website has to serve a purpose to the company by giving relevant and useful information to its visitors framed in good design and graphics.

A template website is like buying a ready-made suit. You can wear it but it won’t look or feel elegant. Having a suit just made for you has a great comfort level and it is same with the website.
