At Weblinx, we are big fans of ASP.net as a programming platform. While most of our new clients have heard of it, however, it’s understandable that many of them don’t really get the benefits, or even why they should bother paying attention to programming platforms and languages at all. After all, shouldn’t your design and development team take care of these details for you? Isn’t learning about .net about as useful to business owners and executives as learning Klingon?
While it’s true that you probably won’t have much reason to get into the details of .net, there are some basic ideas you should understand, if only because they can help you make the right choices for the future of your business website:
.Net is a great tool for developing versatile web apps. Custom web applications are one of the easiest tools for making your site more useful to visitors, and more profitable over the long run. By hiring a web development team that works in .net, you can ensure that they build something that is stable and compatible with lots of different platforms.
Working with .net makes your site a better long-term value. Ultimately, the more functionality you have in your custom business website (that is, the more buyers can do from your pages), the longer it’s going to last, and the more it’s going to be able to increase sales or decrease costs for you. In other words, hiring a web design and development team that works with .net is a great way to get better long-term value for your investment.
.Net makes your website scalable. One of the biggest mistakes business owners and executives tend to make, when getting a new business website, is to think only of their present needs. Just as your website is growing, so will your company, its products, and your goals. By working with .net, you increase the odds that your site will be able to keep up with you for years to come, meaning you won’t have to replace it (and spend even more on web design) in the near future.
If you have different types of users and information, .net is a valuable resource. Because .net is a great tool for building customer areas into your site (like pages to place orders online, or see account details), it becomes more valuable as you grow your customer lists, or add new types of buyers. That’s something to keep in mind, especially at a time when economic realities are forcing more businesses to look for new revenue streams.
