Bespoke websites can drive sales and offer exceptional ROI!
Have you decided that it’s time for a flashy new website? Before you reach for an “off the shelf” option, have you considered what it would be like to own a bespoke website?
Of course, these websites cost more because they take a lot longer for designers and developers to plan, design and build, but they can be a wise investment with fantastic returns.
Discover what makes a bespoke website and its benefits, right here!
What is a bespoke website?
A bespoke website is a website that is designed from scratch, without using any pre-made templates or designs. Everything is customised to the client’s individual specification and business goals and therefore takes more time to plan, design and develop. The client will end up with exactly what they envisioned for their site, which makes it unique and sets them apart from other businesses, both within the same industry and on the web as a whole.
Bespoke websites vs WEBPRO semi-bespoke template websites
On the other hand, semi-bespoke template websites combine pre-made designs with aspects that can be made unique and tailored to the client’s needs. This is an option offered by WEBPRO and differs from traditional “off the shelf” template websites which we discuss in more detail below.
With a WEBPRO semi-bespoke template website, you have the option to choose between 3 different levels of functionality and then there are a selection of different designs to choose from within each level. Your new website is then built by one of our expert team, who customises it with your branding, images and company specific information. So how does this compare to a fully bespoke website?
You might want to think of a bespoke website as baking a cake and decorating it exactly as you wish with whatever you want. In contrast, a semi-bespoke website is like already having the pre-baked cake but then choosing the toppings to match your taste.
The benefits of a bespoke website
Bespoke websites have some obvious benefits to the business, such as a tailor-made design that sets you apart. But the benefits of a bespoke website go much further than that. They can have a direct impact on business success and growth.
Here are some reasons that bespoke websites can help you sell more:
- Consumers choose detail-orientated businesses
- It adds to your business reputation and credibility
- You can use industry-specific market research to plan the design
- Bespoke websites tend to have a better SEO ranking and receive more traffic
- The website can be scaled more easily in conjunction with any business growth or expansion
- You can find your own business website solutions rather than waiting for a plugin to be released, helping you stay ahead!
Is a self-build website a bespoke website?
This would be the more traditional website template route we mentioned above and it almost always requires you to build your own website using the content management system (CMS) of your chosen company.
When you build this type of website, you choose from a small range of pre-built website templates and then choose from a limited number of design features and plugins. This often seems like an easy task but users often find it is far more complicated than they imagined and they are often not able to add many of the features they would like without hiring a developer.
Another drawback of traditional template websites is that, because there are a limited number of designs to choose from and because it is difficult to customise them without expert help, everyone comes away with a site that looks the same. These sites are certainly not bespoke, and it would be a real stretch to call them semi-bespoke.
