Template vs Custom

In this post we will be looking at the template built website and the custom built website and the benefits of each one.

The first thing a potential customer or even an investor is going to reach is the website, so the look of your website is a massive key ingredient to land the investment or draw in new clients or customers.

There is generally two common types of website which is the custom built and the template built so it is important that you understand both types.

Template built

There are some well known template builders such as wix.com, vistaprint.com and one.com. Having a template built website do come with some advantage such as

  • Easy usage for non professionals.
  • No need to hire a web designer.
  • Cost Friendly.
  • Faster to setup.
  • Update it when needed.

But like a custom built the template built also comes with its disadvantages

  • Restrictions and Limitations on functionality.
  • Lack of flexibility.
  • Prebuilt templates that are not unique.

We hope that this post was easy and helpful to understand some of the benefits to a custom and template built website.
