Need an Official Site for Your Business? Want to Start a Blog About Your Favorite Hobby?
I Can Help You With That!
How Can You Help Me?
For a one-time fee, I will build your WordPress website from the ground up. I will set the pages, insert links, and add your pre-written content. I handle all of the details to create a unique, easy-to-handle website that meets your personal or professional needs. If you do not have a web presence and need to build one, or if you have a business but no website to go with it, this is a good place to start.
What is Your Experience?
Quite simply, my experience is 10+ years of working with WordPress creating my own business websites. I provide services in a variety of professional arenas and have a website for each one, the majority of which being built with WordPress. WordPress has changed over the years and continues to evolve its interface, so I actively work hard to stay on top of new updates and offerings. Due to this familiarity and skill level with the platform, I now offer website building services.
How Much is the Service?
The one-time fee is $555. This pays for my time and expertise in creating your basic WordPress website. The fee includes a video consultation to discuss your needs, the website build itself, and a post-build feedback session to review the site together and teach you the basics of maintaining it. Fifty percent of the fee, paid via electronic invoice, is due as a non-refundable retainer to start work, and the other half is due upon completion.
Isn’t WordPress Free? Can’t I Build a Website Myself?
Yes and yes. WordPress is specifically made to be accessible by anyone and does have a free account option. And if you have the time to explore and learn WordPress, I highly encourage you to do so. But for those who do not have the time or desire, what I offer is a service of convenience.
Do You Do Any Coding or Web Design Outside of WordPress?
No, I do not. I am not a coder or a trained web designer. The skill set being offered here is my high proficiency at utilizing WordPress.com to create professional, fully functional websites (there is also WordPress.org, a service for those who do coding and host their sites elsewhere, which I do not use). If you are interested in more detailed and customized web design outside of what WordPress.com offers, I encourage you to seek a professional web designer.
Will You Write My Site Content For Me?
At present, I do not provide copy writing services. You will need to provide me with the text and the specific images that you want on your site. While I do minor editing if I see obvious spelling or grammar errors, I do not adjust your content. You are solely responsibility for the content on your website.
Will My Site Have Ads? Do I Get My Own Web Address?
If you keep your WordPress account at the free level, ads will eventually pop up and your web address will be “customname.wordpress.com.” For personal and hobby websites, this may not be a big deal. But for professional websites, you’ll want to upgrade your WordPress account to remove ads and have your own domain. The process to do this can be discussed at your feedback session. There is a cost to upgrade your account, but that is paid directly to WordPress, not to me.
What is the Turnaround Time?
In general, turnaround time is approximately three weeks. This may be shorter or longer based on my project load. An express turnaround time can be requested with an additional fee.
What If I Need to Make Site Changes in the Future?
During our feedback session, I will give you guidance on how to make simple changes to your site for information updates. If you take the time to learn the basic functionality of WordPress, you’ll be able to handle any site changes yourself, which is why WordPress is a great option for DIY web design. However, if you prefer that I perform that service for you, there is a fee for future site updates.
Where Can I See Samples of Your Work?
This very website itself is an example of one of my WordPress builds. The list below are more sites I’ve built, which will give you a strong sense of what I can provide you. Most of my sites are done with free WordPress templates (there are also paid templates if you prefer those). Some sites are at the free level and have ads, while others have been upgraded to have a distinct domain and no ads.
