The number one question I get is 'how much?'How much to build a WordPress website? How much to add a single feature? How much for consulting?
This is most comparable to asking a building contractor ‘how much does it cost to build a house’ or ‘how much to remodel a kitchen’.
Website costs do vary widely based on dozens of factors. Here are the other most commonly asked questions:
IS THERE A PRICE RANGE?
Yes, there is. On average most custom WordPress sites we do typically range between $1,500 and $3,000. We also work on projects that cost much less and much more. Basic websites (with limited customization) that are highly scalable start at $600 including personalized training.
WHO ARE YOUR TYPICAL CLIENTS?
Our typical clients are small businesses, entrepreneurs, and solopreneurs. They represent just about every type of business you can imagine including writers, psychologists, financial advisors, artists, consultants, designers, pet care takers and real estate brokers.
Our clients needs range from 5 page to 50 page websites. Many of our clients have their in-house graphic designer or an outside designer create the site design. Others rely on our help to come up with the right look.
WHAT HOSTING COMPANY DO YOU PREFER FOR A WORDPRESS SITE?
There are a handful of hosting companies that do a fantastic job supporting WordPress with their technology and customer support.
The one we continue to recommend is SiteGround. Not only are their people there 24/7, but they are incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to WordPress.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO BUILD A WEBSITE?
A timeline can only be quoted based on the requirements of a specific website. Factors include the complexity of the design, the number of pages, and the site functions.
There are currently 50,000 WordPress plugins, so almost any functionality you can imagine can now be incorporated into a WordPress website.
With that said, the most complex sites we've built have taken up to 8 weeks and the simplest have taken a just a few days.
