Why You Should Think Long Term with Web Design. A website is a long-term investment, and if you get the design and programming work done correctly from day one you will save time, stress and money in the long term.

Many business owners think of their website as being like a virtual shop window. They appreciate that the website has to look good, but struggle to justify to themselves, or their accountants, why they need a powerful content management system.

A few years ago, it was possible to get by with a simple static web page built using nothing but HTML, but those days are long gone. Today's consumers expect websites to be sophisticated and interactive, as well as updated regularly with the latest news from your business. In addition, they want to be able to access those pages using any device they own, from their desktop PC to their iPad or their Android phone.

Responsive Websites Are a Must

Updating a static website is a labour-intensive task, and if you make a mistake updating your site, you could break the layout, making your company look unprofessional. Database-driven websites, such as the ones we create at WYSI, can be updated using a powerful but easy to use content management system or CMS. This means that you can post news about special offers or give updates about holiday opening hours and other things your customers need to know, without needing to worry about accidentally breaking something.

In addition to being easy to update, our websites are also responsive. This means that they look good on all devices. There's no need to get separate desktop and mobile web design quotes and run two different versions of your site at the same time because our sophisticated CMS templates will handle any screen size and any browser with ease.

Design That Grows with You

When we provide mobile web design quotes, we are offering you a package that can be extended and built upon as your business grows. Whether you are looking for the simplest blog or a fully featured shopping cart, the design that we give you is one that will last your company for many years. We consider SEO, loading times, flexibility and aesthetics to make a site that will grow with your business.

A website is a long-term investment, and if you get the design and programming work done correctly from day one you will save time, stress and money in the long term. Don't try to cut corners on your website design, because doing so just makes it harder to upgrade when the need arises.
