Do you need a web presence but don't have time to add your own content?
A static website is the ideal option for clients who don't have time to add their own content, who need a brochure style website to showcase their services or are selling a few products using PayPal buy now buttons. However, if you need a blog attached to your website, we recommend using WordPress for your website, even if you don't plan to add or update the content yourself.
A static website is designed and built offline, usually in HTML and CSS , and is uploaded to a web server using a file manager or FTP. Unless you know HTML and/or CSS, we will need to add, remove or alter any content for you, so you need to budget for ongoing regular updates.
A static website design or redesign may be as simple as using a single page temlate with a one column layout, minimal background imagery and only one editable region, and may only have a few pages with basic information in paragraph and bulleted format and a few static images. A basic static website is ideal for start-ups and home based businesses with limited budgets and small, local target markets, and who just need a professional web presence to display information about their product or service.
A static website, however, could be as complex as you need it to be. A complex static website may require multiple page templates, a multi-column layout with numerous editable regions, complex background imagery and/or a variety of interactive features, such as drop down menus, image sliders and photo galleries, tabbed, accordian or collapsible panels, videos, flip books, Google maps and other third party add-ons. A complex static website is ideal for larger companies with various departments, a wide range of services and/or multiple product lines to display and who are trying to capture a larger target market.
