Website designs typically fall in to one of the following three categories: Brochure, Dynamic, and Shopping Carts/eCommerce
Brochure: Very similar to paper brochures, allows you to provide information to your visitors regarding your products, services, contact information, etc. This type of website is usually the most affordable.
Dynamic: These websites may contain brochure type information, but are mostly driven by data/content stored in a database. New or updated data in the database is immediately reflected on the website, giving your user a richer, more dynamic experience. Examples includes weather websites, homes for sale websites, etc.
Shopping Carts/eCommerce: These types of websites are usually the most advanced and include all the elements of Brochure and Dynamic websites. These sites allow for visitors to purchase products, and depending on your banking arrangements, for those funds to be deposited to your bank account directly.
What is SEO?
Search Engine Optimization, or SEO, are the techniques used to help your website rank higher with search engines. The higher ranking they have, the more likely you'll be found by visitors searching for your content. This is essentially making your website search engine friendly and helping your site appear on the first pages of a visitors search.
Templates or Custom Design?
Websites can be created using templates or custom designed.
Templates are pre-designed websites that you custom tailor to your needs. They can be found for free or purchased for a small fee and will take some work to customize to your needs. Website builders are tools that allow you to easily customize a template. Templates are ideal for a do-it-yourselfer or if you have a tight budget.
Custom designed sites are just that, custom to your desires and needs and can be as simple or as elaborate as you desire. The cost for a custom designed site ranges from a couple hundred dollars for a simple site to thousands of dollars for complex and/or database driven sites. Most, if not all, high end, popular sites are custom designed.
