It seems obvious to say that the sole factor which will dictate whether or not any blogger, freelancer or small business will opt for a custom WordPress theme design is cost. After all, there are free themes, premium themes and custom themes. And custom themes cost cash.
But money isn’t the only factor you should take into consideration when deciding whether or not a custom design WordPress theme really is for you. Let’s have a look at what you should pay attention when you consider creating your own WordPress theme.
Pros and cons of creating custom WordPress theme design
When you’re operating on a budget, it’s natural to try as hard as you can to keep costs down. You want good stuff, but you certainly can’t pay through the nose for it – even if you could afford to.
A theme’s price tag does matter. A custom design WordPress theme can cost from as little (wince) as $50 to $200+. They’re not cheap. Free themes, on the other hand, are, well, FREE!
But they’re not always as good.
The thing with costs, though, is that you’ve got to be sure that the custom theme is worth it.
So, while paying lots of cash for a custom WordPress theme design can definitely be a con, you have to take into a few other consideration that will influence your decision:
There will invariably be times when you run into trouble with your design. Perhaps you want to tweak it or make sweeping changes.
When this happens, you need to know that you can rely on the folk who provided the theme in the first place for their support. Otherwise, what will you do when things go wrong? You could lose time and money. You might even have to look for a brand new theme!
At Theme Development, we provide 24/7 support. When you purchase a custom design from us, we are with you every step of the way. Whatever query you might have, and whatever time you need to ask it, we are ready to take your call and provide a solution.
Okay, so you’ve got your lovely, shiny new custom WordPress theme design.
After 6 months, though, you’re kinda bored of it. You’ve seen that your competitors have all upped their games by tweaking theirs to bring it up to date, while yours is still stuck in 2015.
Naturally, you’d like some updates so that you can keep on improving the look of your website. But what if there aren’t any?!
At Theme Developer, our custom made theme designs always come with updates. Our theme’s never run their course, but instead always raise the bar for the competition. Moreover, we provide expert security that is always one step ahead of hackers.
When you’re outlaying a substantial amount of money on a theme, you’d probably prefer it if the theme developer had a solid amount of experience with creating themes.
Don’t get us wrong; newbie theme developers can sometimes create the most marvellous of all theme designs.
But it helps when the guys behind your custom-made themes are experts who have been doing this for years.
At Theme Developer, we are home to such a team of expert professionals who collectively have years of experience with creating custom-made themes for our clients.
