Generic WordPress Template Theme and Bespoke WordPress Template Theme

Template theme

Firstly the template option.  With this option your site is created using a pre-designed template which has already been created to supply as many users as possible the options needed to facilitate their potential site requirements. It is a ‘one size fits all’ approach.


Main advantage is that it is initially more affordable as you can choose a template theme which best fits your needs, however it does have disadvantages as it loads all the template options whether you need it or not so it can lead to slow load times and you are limited by the template design.

Bespoke theme

Secondly the Bespoke theme option. With this option a WordPress custom site is tailored from the very beginning for your business.

Advantages of a Bespoke Theme

This offers the advantage that it is not restricted by any template and often includes more in depth search engine optimisation (SEO) so your site can be found. It also means a cleaner and quicker load speed of your site as it is not having to include sections which are not relevant or used in your site compared to the template option. As a WordPress website developer this is the option that I can help you explore your business requirements with to help create a clean responsive website for you.
