Affordable designs such as logo design, web design and general graphic design sometimes seem like a myth. Most of you that own a website has gone through a lot of struggles to get online. Some of you have definitely overpaid and been lied to. See, at Quality Designs, we’re here to deliver honest services and products. That is why, we will be upfront and honest in telling you we use WordPress, the leading industry standard platform for more than 35% of all websites online today. Let us make that even clearer, at the time of writing this article, it is estimated that more than 455,000,000 websites use WordPress today. A lot of web designers hide how much simpler this makes our job. Why? If they can get the same amount of money from years ago when everything was built from scratch, but do it a lot faster, they’re going to do it.
Quality Designs will be honest and tell you that all websites are different, and most can be built in a week. Our competitors will tell you it can take months. And that is simply because they take too many projects on at once. Now think of this, have you ever had a ball that you’ve thrown in the air and caught? Then tried to see how many times you can do this without dropping it? I bet you’ve been pretty good at that. But what happens when you start adding a second and third ball and you are now juggling between them? You end up dropping them, meaning you can’t do as good a job of throwing and catching when you introduce more to focus on. This is exactly the same with websites. The more you build at the same time, the more likely you are to forget things, make avoidable mistakes and the slower you are going to work.
We use WordPress, like most of our competition, but we’re different. We’ll take one job and focus all our energy and time on that one project from start to finish. Sure we’ll take on more work, but we queue it up so nothing new is started until the last project is completed. So what is the point in telling you this? Well, we are faster to work with, we don’t pretend there is more work involved than there really is. Wait, so if it doesn’t take as long as the competitors may say compared to how it used to be starting from scratch, why is the pricing still the same? The answer is simple, it really shouldn’t be. You may get more additional service for the same cost such as attention to graphical detail and such, but realistically, a lot of companies do a few days work and charge a few weeks. Bear this in mind when you’re looking for web design services in the future.
Affordable Designs without reinventing the wheel.
There is an old saying ‘Reinventing the wheel’, this saying more or less means you are wasting time making something that already exists. The wheel is the perfect design that is incredibly unlikely to ever change since it works so well, everyone adopts the same wheel. So how does this relate to other design-related aspects such as web design, logo design or even print design? Templates! For people with a limited budget, we don’t need to reinvent the wheel, we can simply re-use a design we are already familiar with and have sitting on the shelf ready to go. Some people don’t like this idea as it’s not unique, but did you know, most web designers will have a limited few designs they will reuse time and time again and change the logo, colours and content? Let’s be honest, no two websites are usually ever the same (excluding scam websites for obvious reasons). Generally, a website will have a unique logo, branded colour scheme, and content. These are the three main elements of a website. So if page structures and layouts can be saved as a template, which they can, why would the client be charged for setting out these layouts and structures? Here at Quality Designs, we offer templates as a sensible and effective way to keep costs affordable. We offer stock imagery so we don’t have to charge more for creating unique photoshoots. However, for customers that want to go the extra mile and aim for something more unique, we do offer a complete 100% bespoke design.
