Virtually Limitless Website Options

website optionsEach small business or organization has its own personality.  And this comes through in your website.  Or it should.  When you design your website, it is a reflection of you.  Or it should be.  Yet when the options you have to choose from are limited, you may not really be able to find a choice that correctly reflects who you are as a business.

This is why businesses often choose a custom website.  In this model, you make all the decisions.  You can have things just how you want them.  Best of all, someone will do it for you.  But you will pay for it.  Custom websites can be quite pricey, and the more complex your tastes are, the more you will pay.  Is there another way to get a website capable of expressing the essential character of your business without paying a premium for it?  Actually, there is.  Customizable websites provide options at a cost-conscious price.

Professionally Designed Templates

Customizable websites start with a template.  These templates are designed by professional web designers.  We know what works and what doesn’t.  We know what looks good and what doesn’t.  We’ve taken the knowledge we’ve gained from working on custom websites and put it to work in our templates.  This is our starting point.

Personalized Elements

But that is just where we start.  You shouldn’t think that since you start out with a template that every website built on that template looks the same.  Nothing could be farther from the truth.  This is where you can let your style show.  You can determine basic structural elements such as the number of focus boxes used and the size of the slider.  You can decide which fonts and colors best convey your brand.  Finally, express the individual character of your business or organization by adding icons and photos of your choice.

Expert Guidance

So how many possible combinations of these customizable websites exist?  Well, for you math geeks out there, taking just a couple of the variables yields the following equation:

8 templates x 140 colors x 6 fonts x 140 font colors = 940,800 possibilities

And this only takes a few of the variables into account.  This doesn’t even address structural elements, which can change your website’s look, as well as your photo and icon picks.  With all the choices available, you may need some guidance.  “Which picture would look best here?”  “How many focus boxes do I need?”  “Which colors go best with the rest of my design?”  If you find yourself unsure of design choices, that’s okay.  That’s what we’re here for.  We will give you our expert opinion to make your website look great.

As you can see, customizable websites are a great way to go.  They offer you tried and true templates, lots of options, and help from professional designers.  Whether you are in Carmel, Brownsburg, Fishers, Indianapolis, or anywhere within reach of the internet, our customizable websites will help you get your message out.  If you are ready to try one for yourself, go ahead – give us a Whirl!  Call us at 317-892-9435 today to get started.
