Enkode encourages the use of website templates in professional web design. To understand the templates role we can compare it as a blue print for a house. One option is to pay for many expensive man hours alongside an architect to design a house to your specifications to create the blue prints. Another option would be to search the web for digital blue prints and have them altered by an architect to your specifications. Both solutions will get you to the same end result, one will be much more expesive in both your time and money. We are willing to take either route in developing your site.

Although entire Flash Sites are quite sexy they are more costly to build and they are not SEO compatible. It take much longer to edit, design, and maintain a flash site because it is based on movies and symbols versus an HTML web site designed with ASP.Net.
