14 Dec Why You Should Choose Quality Over Cost For Your New Website
You may have heard the sayings “if you pay peanuts, you get monkeys” or “if you pay low, you pay twice” and this absolutely rings true when it comes to professional website development and marketing services as far as the GeoBots are concerned. Your website is a huge part of your business – it is your digital shop window – and not only does it showcase your products and services, it represents who you are as a business and seamlessly incorporates your ethos and values. If you are wanting to showcase your business as the best in the game, a cheap and cheerful website is never going to give your visitors the right first impression and we all know you only get one chance to make that.
Quite often when we receive initial enquiries at Geonet, one of the first questions is: “how much will it cost?”. We pride ourselves in providing quality, bespoke website solutions that are completely tailored to each client’s individual requirements, and more than often our enquirers are at the stage in their website life where they are ready to do web ‘properly’ and make the investment that is required, safe in the knowledge that they are getting a premium website and top-level service from everyone involved.
We understand all too well that on some occasions, budget restrictions will impact what is possible on a new website project, but our clients can be assured, whether we are producing a brochure website with minimal functionality or an e-commerce platform with integrated CMS development, that they are always getting the same level of quality from Geonet Solutions.
With this in mind, we ask the question – why choose quality over cost when it comes to websites?
You’ve been browsing the internet looking for something in particular and have lost count of how many websites you have been on, but then you notice something obvious – the website you are on now has exactly the same design as a website you have been on a few clicks ago! These websites have been built using a theme and with a few clicks here and there and an upload of a different logo, companies can produce websites on mass for very little investment. Sounds great, doesn’t it? Nope? Good, we are in agreement! At Geonet Solutions we produce bespoke website solutions from scratch without a theme or off-the-shelf template in site. The design team create stunning mockups which are then converted by the studio and developed into the websites you will see over on our portfolio. These websites are unique, there isn’t another one of them in the world and if you want your brand and website to stand out above all the copied websites out there, you’d best speak to the team at Geonet Solutions first!
It’s great when you have a beautiful website that everyone loves and uses, but what isn’t great is having a website you have zero control over. You might have paid less for your new template-based website but here is where some of the development companies will make big bucks out of you — you will have very little freedom to update your website once it’s launched! Scandalous… Don’t worry though, a website from Geonet Solutions comes with the ability for you to add new content, images and blogs, and we also run training sessions for all of our clients on their new websites so they are completely in-the-know.
A website is only as good as its security. What’s the point in having your website hosted by a company with poor hosting options that don’t carry SSL (which will also impact your SEO by the way)? All Geonet Solutions’ websites come with the most secure hosting packages and SSL certificates. Remember those nasty template websites we spoke about earlier? Well due to being built on using a theme, over time they will fall out of date, their plugins will age and will be vulnerable to all types of digital dangers! Not at Geonet, we make sure that all of our websites are built on platforms with the future in mind so as your website grows you can be happy in the knowledge that it will be nice and secure.
Any business out there started from a single idea and then grew from there. Sometimes a company takes baby steps and grows gradually, bit by bit, and sometimes a company will expand at an accelerated rate. You’ll want a website that can handle both types of growth so that when your business is ready to take the next step, so is your website. What a lot of clients who come to us after a bad experience elsewhere realise is that no matter their growth speed, they needed a website solution that could support them. With the correct investment into the right platform from the start, they might have not wasted time and money in the first place.
Just remember when you are thinking about your next website project, do you really want a subpar product and service? Do you want to be getting a new design sooner than you thought due to an outdated design or system? We strongly advise that you make a decent investment in your website project with an agency you can trust, as this will provide the long-term, secure and flexible solution that your successful business needs.
If you are looking for a bespoke website, get in touch with the team at Geonet Solutions and we can help make your dreams a reality.
