Your budget is real. What we can accomplish when developing your website depends on how we allocate it.
What this means for you: You can spend your website development budget on your customer's experience and not the backend.
You no longer have to spend monies on something that your website's users and clients will never see, don't interact with, and can't appreciate. Instead, you are free to focus solely on what they can perceive and appreciate...their experience. That is precisely why we once spent money on the backend - the customer experience. If you wanted a video on your site, which is the medium most preferred by users, you had to host and serve it from a server, store it in a database, and encode it. That was all done in a language frontend developers didn't understand. To create a great experience for our users we had to pay a backend engineer to code it all. Then pay for the monthly fees and data charges. Seeing that the most common pay structure was data usage, just one video on a page got expensive fast, especially if your web page was successful. This was expensive and most business website owners opted out. Thus denying the users a great experience.
The money saved in backend salaries, server maintenance, and monthly hosting fees can now be spent on video, large media, better design, security, brand building, and actual web design and development. That is great for you and your users.
