The drawbacks when using WordPress templates.

WordPress is a great user friendly content management system packed with useful features in a easy to use framework. Themes are at the heart of WordPress and quite often its easier to buy a ready made template theme off the shelf with little customisation. There a number of reasons why this approach is preferred than a custom build process which comes down to things like speed, cost and pre-built functions. We certainly won’t knock this approach however our process is completely tailored and bespoke. All our projects start from a blank canvas.

It’s important to note while templates can provide a quick and cost-effective solution for some projects, they may not be suitable for businesses who value a unique and tailored online presence, advanced functionality, and long-term scalability. Careful consideration should be given to whether a template or custom design approach is the right fit for your specific needs.
