Of course, many businesses have to operate within budget constraints and everything comes at a price. However website design is not something which should be skimped on.
Choosing a website design on price alone would be the equivalent of choosing an important outfit on the same basis. Would your customers and business partners be impressed if you attended an important meeting dressed in a raggedy outfit made from a cheap material? You may have saved money but it would be at the expense of your reputation and customer relationship.
If your website is unable to promote and support your business, saving money on a website design can be a false economy. Websites should be considered as an investment for your future and as essential to your business as shop premises would have been in the past.
Many years ago having a web presence would have been enough to impress your customers but this is no longer the case. Today’s users are internet savvy and want sleek, stylish and sophisticated designs.
