A custom website design is great, but anything will do! No matter what your business is, you MUST have an online presence. Even if it is as simple as having your logo, address and phone number. People WANT to find you. Don’t let potential visitors and/or sales slip through your fingers.
First impressions online matter more than ever. Engage your audience, increase sales, and make a lasting impression with a professional website designed and built specifically for your business and your customers. We plan, create and build beautiful websites on the latest technologies that help drive growth and improve visibility for businesses.
There are a lot of choices out there, and a Quik123 consultant can help you choose the correct one. Let’s take a look at some of your options.
Allow you to have the most flexibility in features and functionality. Get a custom website design, not a cookie cutter.
Creating and maintaining a 100% custom website requires highly skilled professionals experienced in HTML and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). There are places on the Internet that will let you build your own website. These “Do-It-Yourself” and cookie cutter designs do not compare to a professionally built HTML website design by Quik Website Design. Not only are these DIY programs hard to manage and customize, eventually you will need some functionality that the website building software does not allow. Then you are stuck with a site that you have poured hundreds of hours into that won’t do what you want. Since the DIY website builder program is proprietary to the company that is providing it, you will not be able to move the site elsewhere and continue your growth. You are at a dead end.
Why waste your valuable time and energy figuring out how to build it yourself when Quik123 will do it all for you at a very affordable price!

If custom website design is not in your budget or if you already know what you want, there are hundreds of websites on the internet that offer “templates” for you to purchase and use as the foundation of your new site. There is nothing wrong with this. Many of the website templates may be very close to what you are looking for and therefore only need a moderate amount of customization. This could save you a couple hundred dollars in design costs.
Be careful when shopping for website templates. Always ask a professional designer to review the template before you purchase it. Quik123 will be able to look at the template and provide you feedback as to whether or not it will be a good fit for what you are ultimately trying to accomplish.
WordPress is a Content Management System (CMS) that has become very popular over the past few years. CMS solutions allow website owners the ability to adjust and add/edit/remove content on their website from a backend administration panel. With some experience, you can become quite good at it.
WordPress also has tons of available templates to help you get started. Some are FREE, but most good ones are not. (FREE templates are also prone to having embedded viruses in them). Once the WordPress platform is installed, and the template is uploaded, you can begin editing the basic sections of the website and you are off and running!
A WordPress website might save you some money in the beginning if you do everything yourself, but if you require a website designer such as Quik to customize the complex portions of the template, you might not be saving very much since many templates are very sophisticated and will require the designer to analyze the code extensively to figure out the best way to make the change. Don’t worry though, there is still good news! The best thing about a CMS website is that you don’t have to pay for website updates in the future!.. so the savings continue!!
