This website is described as Hybrid because it sits in-between a Pre-Designed website and a totally Custom Designed website (which requires a quotation with investment from $8,000 +GST).
Pricing however, is much closer to the Pre-Designed website (ie the lower priced end of websites).
How it works:
- Your website is built using ThriveSuite by ThriveThemes (click link to find out more).
- You will need to purchase a licence for ThriveSuite here which currently costs US$299 per year. This provides access to a comprehensive list of website tools including Thrive Theme Builder and Thrive Architect which we then use to build your website.
- The ThriveSuite licence gives you access to all of ThriveThemes website software tools and tutorial videos that show you how to use the tools (if you ever choose to). Plus you have full control over the technology in your website.
- These tools allow us to develop a much more customised website for your business, but without the need to pay a designer to come up with a customised design and then pay a developer to code the design to create your website theme.
- As a result, this method of website development is cost effective compared to a custom design, but with the flexibility to make the website truly unique to your business when compared with using a standard Pre-Designed template website.
- One other key feature is that you do not need to be a programmer yourself to make edits to the website. It is something you can learn (with many video tutorials to guide you) if you ever choose to become more DIY with the website in the future.
