When you begin migrating, there can be many factors to consider and various different routes to take. Below, we'll outline three common migration methods you can use to streamline a migration and deliver the best result for both you and your client.

Like for Like - Migrate a site as-is with minimal changes and build time
Studio - An opportunity to future-proof design, code and functionality
Bespoke - Fully re-build a site with all new design, code and functionality

The like-for-like method approaches the migration by importing as much of the existing site as possible without rebuilding or redesigning.

Like-for-like - low budget
