Have you heard about the WordPress drag and drop themes that are available now? They are easy to use for both people looking to design their site on their own, or for people looking to hire a professional web developer to design the site for them.
Before I begin, I would like to thank Software Development Naples, a web design company in Naples, FL USA for contributing advice to this blog. You can find out more about this company run by a friend of mine, Andrew at the following link: softwaredevelopment.com.
Firstly, if you are designing your own site, then a drag and drop theme will save you tones of time. On the other hand, if you are hiring a web dev company to design the theme for you, then you will also be saving them time using a drag and drop theme.
Saving time on web design is incredibly important because time is money. You can concentrate on other important aspects of your website such as getting traffic, sales processes and other important aspects such as running your business!
Avoid Admin Fees
Buying a theme in advance or having at least a short list gives you another cost advantage. you can approach the web developer already with a theme in mind and avoid the admin fees a web development company would charge you for looking at themes on your behalf.
Remember that you may feel that selecting or buying a theme is not something that should be charged.
On the contrary. As with your own business, using resources comes with a chargeable cost. Whether you charge this at an hourly/daily rate or include this into the profit margins of your product/service, you will be looking to make a return on your services.
For web dev companies this is the same. Somehow in the costs, the time spent searching and even purchasing a theme will be somehow fathomed into the final cost. Therefore, being prepared with a drag and drop theme that you like will give you distinct cost advantage.
Can I get Responsive Themes?
If you come across a WordPress theme that is not responsive, then ignore it. In fact, there should not be any website templates out there for sale today that do not offer a responsive design. The reason for this is because in today’s mobile and the move crazy digital environment, a non responsive website is as near as dammit a dead website. This is the fact of life when it comes to web design in today’s modern digital era.
Where can I find out more?
You can check out this website for WordPress drag and drop themes. They are available at very good prices and you can save costs with your web developer by buying the theme yourself before they quote you. This is a great example of what is out there.
Make sure you decide upon a theme or a selection of themes. Make it easy for your web developer to help you make the right choice. If you start to change your mind all the time or you become indecisive, then this could end up costing you more time and money. On the other hand, as this is your company website, you do not want to rush things or choosing the wrong theme could cost you a lot of money in redesign later on. It is a bit of a catch 22.
Finally, you will have an easy to use and almost effortless website to design and maintain. This is where you want to be in the end. Something that does not take too much time, but gets across your brand image and services in such a way that it engages your visitors and brings in sales if making money from the site is in fact your final objective.
