Most WordPress sites I work on start around $3,800 and go up from there, depending on the size of the site. Though each site is a custom project based on your specific needs, the following list shows what is usually included in that price.

Projects usually include:

  • Website hosting setup
  • Base installation and configuration of latest version of WordPress
  • Installation, setup, and customization of one premium WordPress theme using your branding, color scheme, copy and imagery
  • Installation and configuration of assorted plugins, including WordPress SEO (for search engine optimization and indexing)
  • Setup and design of home page with slider and widgets
  • Setup and design of 6-8 interior pages
  • Blog setup (if desired) with 1-3 initial posts
  • Google Analytics account creation
  • Google Search Console account creation

Optional add-ons

  • Contact forms
  • Portfolios, galleries or case-studies
  • Event calendars
  • Training

Projects usually do not include:

  • Domain registration (usually $15/yr or less, it is recommended that the domain name be in YOUR name for your protection so that you retain complete ownership)
  • Website Hosting (usually $15-$30/mo, it is also recommended that this be in YOUR name for the same reasons as above)
  • Email setup and configuration (I recommend Google Apps and I know some awesome and affordable folks who can do this for you)
  • Photography (If you are local, I know some great photographers. You can also take your own photos or we can purchase inexpensive stock photography)
  • Logo Design
  • Copywriting (I know a copywriter, too! Inquire within)
  • E-commerce or custom portals for restricted access areas
  • Ongoing site maintenance (I do offer a no-strings-attached maintenance plan, though!)
  • Extensive customization beyond what is featured in the selected theme options panel (I can provide additional CSS customization at an hourly rate)

If the site is exceptionally tiny or simple, I can sometimes make accommodations to fit your budget. Contact me and we can discuss your unique needs. In the spirit of philanthropy, I also offer a nonprofit discount. And if you do need assistance with some of the above items not normally included, I can usually help with those, too! I just bill them separately.

Please note that I do not develop e-commerce websites development or websites requiring custom portals or other special functionality.
