Templates vs. custom design
So, what should you use? A ready template or a custom design? This will mainly depend on your scope and what you need your website for. Try to answer those questions for yourself first. Using a template makes things simpler and saves development time, but it will limit how original and special your website can be.
Also, one thing to keep in mind is that a WordPress template can be of good or bad quality (This usually depends on whether it is a free one or if you have to pay for it). Most of the times we recommend a custom design solution, for this is the only way to build a website that represents your organization or personal identity and to help you achieve your goals.
A website has to keep up with the times. These days, websites aren’t exclusively visited by PCs or laptops anymore. Visitors come from tablets, smartphones, and all kinds of other mobile devices. All of those have a different size, which causes websites to be displayed differently on each different device. Sometimes, a web design gets scrambled in this process, which is of course not desirable.
Because of the vast development of mobile devices, the last years have made responsive web design a core concept in the internetworld. Its significance is huge, because people increasingly visit websites via (small) mobile devices. Simultaneously, computer and television screens are generally increasing in size. Thus, in their design of a website, designers cannot just keep standard screen resolutions in mind, but have to create designs that are responsive to each type of screen.
Plugins: pro’s and con’s
As we just mentioned, WordPress has a very rich library of plugins, virtually for any need you might have. Similar to the templates, there are paid and free plugins. Using plugins is inevitable when building a WordPress website, which is why you need somebody who actually knows how to work with them. Plugins are meant to save time and offer an easy way to expand a website, but the downside is the maintenance that comes with it.
WordPress releases regular updates, and for security reasons it is very important to always keep your system up to date. Plugins, however, update less regularly and in some cases this can lead to incompatibility issues. This is why we always recommend our testing and maintenance packages for WordPress websites, so we can make sure that your website always functions optimally.
There are many facets to optimizing a website: technical optimization, conversion oriented designing, and of course Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Search Engine Advertising (SEA). How do we at Rocket Minds go about this and how do we lead your website or webshop to success? Click underneath to read all about it!.
SEO and SEA
Search engine marketing is a process that progresses slowly. However, when you choose to involve our SEO and SEA specialists, then you can be sure that you will reap the benefits of increased website traffic over time.
Google's search results are not just indexed by algorithms, but also paid for as online ads. Google AdWords – also known as Search Engine Advertising (SEA) – allows you to directly attract visitors from Google's first page without having a completely optimized website.
After you attract website visitors, these have to be converted to leads, clients or customers. At Rocket Minds we create conversion oriented designs: geared towards a clear goal, with tactical implementations of Call to Actions, buttons, and other functionalities.
When the technical optimization is done, we can focus us on the other element of SEO, namely content optimization. In this, we analyze keywords to optimize the content (texts, titles, images, videos) of your website.
