In this article, we discuss about online stores based on store builders like Prestashop, Shopify, BigCommerce,… and the reason why the store owners should ask for Website Custom work instead of coding the store website by themselves.
What is Custom work?
Custom work, in general, it means a work for a certain customer that is designed, carried out specifically for that user. No other user will have the same work and this work will not be republished to sell to anyone else. Examples for custom work are a wood table designed and made for you by your request, a copy of a painting with modification according to your likings, etc.
What is Website custom work?
Website custom work shares the same meaning. Designing and making a website according to your preferences. A pre-made template often satisfies the need of major of users. But if you want something different on it that is not yet available, for example, using a peculiar font for your website, or inserting a logo onto your footer,… it’s when you ask for a custom work.
Why do you need Website Custom work?
Not everyone knows the codes
Yes, the main headline of this article is about it. To know coding or HTML/CSS, you need a certain time to acquire the knowledge, and a certain experience to apply it to your products. No one finds success overnight. And especially if you’re a store owner with many other chores to do, that is not less important and complicated, such as managing your products, handling the costs and fees, dealing with shipping services, manufacturers, merchants, etc, customer services, taxes, legal works, hostings,… It is not possible to spend time trying to tweak HTML/CSS. However, if you are strongly willing to, you can always take out some time to learn. You can even take up an online course that wouldn’t require you to attend a school or travel to attend its classes in order to learn. In addition, if you want to learn from the basics, you can also enroll in a coding for kids course, so that even a tough subject like coding can feel like a cakewalk.
Website Custom work makes your website unique
Why is it? Because custom work, in its own definition, is a work carried out for a certain customer, no-one will receive the same result and the final product will not be republished to sell to anyone else. Your website’s custom order will bring you a result that no other website will have. It all depends on your creativeness. And your choice of custom service provider, too. The horizon is limitless, the uniqueness of your website design is only a matter of your imagination.
Website Custom work saves your time and energy
If you already know something about coding, HTML/CSS, you might want to give it a try onto your own website. But the problem is, is it worth it? For a coder, they should be coding, because that’s their job and they’re making money from it. But for you, a store owner, are you sure the time you invest onto your coding will bring worthwhile benefit for you and for your business? It doesn’t hurt to try doing something new sometimes. But only if it gives the worthy result. Imagine the profit gained if you spend your time doing something that coders can’t help or even no-one else can help you, such as looking for a new wholesaler, or developing your customer network.
Website Custom work creates new functions
Each website platform such as Prestashop, Shopify, BigCommerce, WooCommerce, Magento, OpenCart,… all have many functions for your store website. Such as language changing, currency changing, shipping fee calculation, multiple skins, subscriptions, glossary, feature products, enlarge images,… For an average user, these might be enough. But for advance users, they often come up with new functions to help managing the store better or to support the customers better, as well as bringing fresh impression on visitors. For example, they want a poll to appear in the sidebar of their website, to explore customers’ thoughts and opinions about a new product, an upcoming sale program. Poll is not available in all e-commerce store builder. So it’s time to call for Website Custom work. In a blink of an eye, your poll is there, ready to discover customers’ mind.
Conclusion: Unless you’re trying to challenge yourself and feel good about it, when it comes to your website’s design and building, you should call for Custom Work when you need it, to save your time and also to give your website a better service. Asking for external help or service is a natural and obvious act in human evolution.
