A custom website includes the design and programming of the front end (what the user sees and interacts with), as well as the development of a content management system (CMS). Businesses that implement an original website design increase their overall market trust and credibility. A website with original front end design and custom CMS will make the process and structure for editing and implementing of content elements suited to your specific needs and wants.
WordPress templates are great and their templated CMS has decent performance. However, using WordPress templates will leave you at the mercy of whoever designed it and programmed it.
Building high-performance informational websites or e-commerce sites requires more work than a typical 5-page website. Bending another CMS into working how you need and want it would take longer than building it from scratch. This ultimately impacts your bottom line.
There are millions of internet users with special needs and impairments, and not all websites provide ADA accommodations. This can make it difficult or even impossible for them to navigate the majority of websites out there. By designing your site with these challenges in mind, you can ensure that it’s welcoming to as many users as possible… Plus, you would be minimizing your risk for a potential lawsuit that can cost you an arm and a leg.
When we talk about WordPress, you should know that there are some accessibility-ready themes that can be used, however, after you input your content and do your own customizations, there is no guarantee that the theme will remain compliant. If you have created and installed your own theme, you still need to make sure that you take the appropriate steps to be compliant.
A custom website design and CMS can fully match your business, your needs and your workflow. It is not a template that includes things that others think are important. At Kulture Konnect, we build websites that offer you more than pre-packaged solutions.
In a nutshell, our goal is to provide you with solutions we feel work best for what you need.
