Henry Ford once said, “You can have any colour, so long as it is black!”
Most things that we buy these days are mass-produced – “out of the box”.
What that means is, they come in a box and what you . . . see in the box is what you get. There are no options or variations.
It is the basis of all mass production.
So what are the pros and cons of this? How does it impact you . . .
Well, the big positive is that by having things mass-produced, the manufacturer is able to offer much better prices.
And in most cases, the product is available immediately, (although not always).
But mass-produced items do not always meet your needs.
That’s why car manufacturers provide some variations, like colour, and have optional accessories available for extra money.
There is still a big demand for customisation, both before purchase and after purchase of a vehicle.
Some car owners need powerful, V8 engines while others need only small, four cylinder engines.
Some want leather seats, while others are happy with velour.
Wheels and tyres, stereos, cup holders, bling and gadgets. You name it . . . someone will provide it.
It’s pretty clear that while mass-produced products serve a purpose and are suitable for some people, they definitely do not meet everyone’s requirements.
There is always a demand for something more than “out of the box”!
Websites are the same
There is a proliferation of DIY, “out of the box”, standard website packages available for a very low price.
And some for a not-so-low price as well.
But nonetheless, some people do use these cheap “out of the box” website packages, and they do serve a purpose for start-up and low-budget businesses.
Unfortunately, though, it often shows !
And while they are cheap to buy and set up, some of the less attractive features include:
- limited ability to customise the design
- difficult to use and edit
- very limited functions
- expensive to add extra features
- bugs and problems along with . . .
- limited technical support
- no marketing advice
- locked in to contracts
- and you pretty much have to do it all yourself
On the other hand . . .
A custom designed website from Hotpink Websites has all of these things positively taken care of, and more.
We don’t do “out of the box” because we know that you will need much more than that.
Time to upgrade
There always comes a time in the life of the business when the cheap or initial website is no longer adequate.
The business needs to present a more professional image.
The website is showing its age – looking old-fashioned and out of date.
It needs more functions in the website to help the business grow and operate online.
The business owner is embarrassed to send clients to the site.
That is why . . .
