Custom WordPress Website Design
Deciding to use WordPress for your business website is a great decision. WordPress may have started as a platform for bloggers, but it has become an increasingly popular and cost-effective solution for small-business websites.
WordPress sites now account for over half of the one million most-visited websites running on a content management system (CMS). However, it can be difficult for a business to stand out from its competition when many others may be using the same templates or themes. Having a unique look and functioning properly on any device are critical. A custom wordpress design is the answer.
How important is your website’s theme?
Choosing the right wordpress website design is crucial to your business. A lot more is involved than simply looking at the aesthetics of one theme vs. another.
Page load time has never been more important. Mobile users, in particular, decide in a scant few seconds whether to stay or abandon a website. If your website isn’t fast enough, they will hit the back button and visit your competitor’s website. The source code of the WordPress theme is significant to load speed. For example, a WordPress theme with many links to external scripts may take too long to load to be viable for a business.
Standing out from the crowd with a distinct brand is essential. Whether you’re just opening the doors or have been established for many years, your website’s design needs to express what is unique about your business.
Your website needs to function reliably on multiple devices, including laptops, tablets, smartphones and, now, even watches. The website must also function on not only today’s browsers, but on the next generation of browsers as they continue to be updated. A quick design check is to see how well the website operates on Internet Explorer, as this browser has traditionally been the least compatible with newer design features.
