Choosing a website that is right for your business requires careful consideration.
Website Design is just one half of the process however – the other half is website development, which will differ greatly depending on what functions you need your website to achieve. “Brochure” websites for example, are generally small, static websites, which do not need to be updated regularly with new information. Content Management System (CMS) websites however, are designed to accommodate larger website or websites that require more frequent updating of content. Ecommerce will then give you the ability to sell products online through your website, often with features such as online inventory, invoicing and promotions. As the process of choosing the right website can often be confusing, we have put together this section to help you make the right choice about the functionality you need from your website and choose which type you will need.
A static website performs no complex programmed tasks; it acts simply as an online brochure. The content can only be updated by a web designer and its main purpose is as a research and reference tool for customers to find out more about your business services or products. Static websites may include features such as galleries and contact forms and animations if required.
CMS stands for Content Management System. CMS websites are built on frameworks such as WordPress and allow website owners to update text and images whenever they need to, without needing any programming knowledge. A CMS can be used for small sites that comprise of only a few pages, or for larger directory-style websites or Blogs that store large amounts of information.
E-commerce websites are designed for selling products or services online. E-commerce websites can process transactions and track sales.
