For many of our customers, using a theme or template for their website just doesn’t offer enough flexibility to allow them to achieve their vision for their website identity, but the cost of a fully custom website may be beyond their current budget.
If that sounds like you, a Semi-Custom Website Design may be the answer you’re looking for.
Instead of starting from scratch, MIS can start with a website theme or template, and then customize the website to suit your needs and taste.
Even though website themes and templates are the least expensive option for developing a new site, or revamping an existing one, many customers feel restricted by the limitations of a using fixed design.
Some are concerned that their site will look too similar to a lot of other sites. (A very minor concern, in our opinion.) Others simply have difficulty finding a theme design that they like.
Whatever their reason, having the option of adding custom changes to an existing theme gives them the flexibility and individuality they are looking for.
If you’re concerned about cost (and who isn’t?), a Semi-Custom Website strikes a happy medium between the more expensive custom sites and the more economical theme-based designs. They usually tend to be closer to the less expensive end of the cost spectrum, but exactly where any given site falls is up to the individual customer.
The amount of customization may be minor, limited to design changes like color, font and picture placement, or it may be structural, incorporating major changes. An analogy would be buying an existing home. You may just want to change the paint, carpet, landscaping and cabinets, or you may want to add a room, or even a second story!
