Why do you use templates?

We actually don't, depending on your definition of "template".  We use 3 party design layouts because they are fast, inexpensive, and of far better quality than anything we could come up with from scratch. Far too often we see web design firms denigrating the use of templates. They imply that template based websites are somehow inferior to their totally custom designs.  They are not wrong... a template based website such as what you get from intuit or website tonight is certainly not what you want... nor is it what Your-Web-Guys do. However if they think that what we do is the same as that then they are absolutely wrong. It is very rare to find a design firm which produces a completely custom product at a price anywhere near the rates we can offer because most of the work is already done. The labor you pay is almost non-existent because of the speed with which we can have a template customized compared to how long it takes someone to make everything from scratch.

Isn't it better to have a totally original site?

Sure, if the two were of the same caliber design. Unfortunately it is very cost prohibitive to get an original design of the same quality and professional level of a design layout from our database. Original designs of the same quality of the layouts we use cost literally two to three thousand dollars, if not more. Why would you want to pay that amount of money when you can get a design of the same quality at a fraction of the cost. The only drawback is that a couple other companies may have similar site designs. That doesn't mean your site will be the same as anyone else's though. Quite the contrary. While working with you, our customization process will make your site totally unique and indistinguishable from the few other companies' sites which are made from the same layout.  And we never use the same layout for two of our clients.

Very good first impression followed by a clean site and helpful support. Richard continues to be informative and adaptive to our wants and to tend to our needs. I believe in the weeks to follow we’ll meet our goals, then exceed them.

When the site crashed this afternoon (as all websites occasionally do), my phone call was answered outside regular business hours. They were already aware of the problem and were working on it. The site was down for a little over half an hour– not a bad response time imo.

And it has nothing to do with their competence or professionalism, but their office building is very zen

I have worked with several different web design companies just because of the line of work I am in, I can say without a doubt that YourWebGuys is the best! I have been working with them now for well over a year and have never second guessed their ideas, motive for the betterment of the company I work for, nor their pricing!

If I call Richard, he answers directly. And if I do have to leave a message, I get a callback within the day. An email sent to support is answered within hours!

I have learned so much from his team, and look forward to working with them for many more years.

When the Mansfield ISD Education Foundation needed a fast turn-around and professional service Your-Web-Guys delivered!! Your-Web-Guys helped our foundation design and launch a new and creative way for our parents and community to help us fund more terrific projects and get much needed resources into our classrooms to benefit children! This dynamic addition to our website seemed imposssible at first, but Your-Web-Guys made it a reality and now anyone in our community or the world can donate or contribute towards our innovative teaching grants. We agree that there are many other website design companies out there but we strongly recommend Your-Web-Guys for your website design and implementation.

I have found Your-Web-Guys to be professional, creative and very, very accessible when it comes to making sure my website is functioning just as it should. I strongly recommend this company for your website design and implementation.

There are many other website design companies out there and they promise a lot. But after talking with some of them I understood that their objectives did not include taking care of, or focusing on, small business. In contrast to that, I’ve found Your-Web-Guys to be geared to work with small and growing businesses

We needed a bold, effective and usable web page that attracted the customers we were seeking for our wedding and events venue. The process was easy and flexible and Your-Web-Guys was outstanding.

They were very knowledgeable and extremely patient. We have used web designers in the past, but Your-Web-Guys will be our designers from now on. And the page was done ON TIME!

Your-Web-Guys carefully listened to our corporation representatives as we discussed every element that we needed to incorporate into a web site. We had used other web designers, but none ever addressed future as well as present needs.

Your-Web-Guys accomplished a very successful design and we were VERY pleased with our experience and the end result.
