The time it takes to build a WordPress website can vary based on several factors, such as the complexity of the site, the number of pages and unique page templates, and the specific functionalities required.
For a custom-build marketing website build with your designs, I typically estimate about 30 to 40 hours, while a more complicated site with custom integrations, member accounts, etc, can be 60+ hours.
Building a custom-designed website is a collaborative effort and will often require input from you and your team/partners. Generally, the more people involved in decision-making, the longer the process can take.
I typically estimate 4-6 weeks for a new custom-built marketing website, but this can vary depending on factors outside my control. If you’re not sure, I’d recommend that you Book an Intro Call to discuss it.
I offer flexible pricing options, either hourly, daily, or fixed-rate. This is down to your personal preference and my availability. For a basic marketing website my prices are usually around £2,250 to £3,000, which equates to 30-40 hours of my time.
Once we have a call, I’ll be able to provide you with a rough estimate of how long I think your project will take, as well as point out any unknowns that may affect the final costs.
WordPress has existed for over 20 years and has evolved from a blogging platform to a fully-fledged content management system (CMS) powering over 40% of all of the websites on the Internet.
The WordPress admin panel has a user-friendly interface that’s familiar to many people, which allows for website managers to create and customise content without having to understand or get involved with any of the underlying code or design.
WordPress has a number of powerful features like the new Block Editor, the REST API, and community plugins that extend it to support almost any functionality you can think of.
Absolutely! All websites I build are responsive across the full range of device widths, meaning they will work seamlessly on all device types and screen sizes.
I have a background in IT security - in fact I worked as a web application security tester prior to starting my own company building WordPress websites.
I’m fully aware of the attack surfaces of a WordPress website and I know how to build a new site securely to reduce the likelihood of a breach.
If you’re really concerned about security, I recommend signing up to my Hosting Package, which includes regular website checkups, updates, security monitoring, backups, and more.
WordPress continues to be my go-to for all website development, allowing me to offer my clients an infinitely scalable and practical solution for fully integrated and sales-focused website designs.
It's open-source, which means I can do anything I like with it without being restricted to a particular vendor (e.g. Shopify, Wix, Squarespace).
It has a rich community and lots of plugins, allowing you to extend common functionality (e.g. event management, ecommerce, CRM integration) without having to write it from scratch.
It's low barrier to entry means clients often already have experience using it and don't need to reskill to learn a new platform.
It's very flexible, it can be used for almost any type of website, from a small blog, to eCommerce shops, to large scale international news/media sites, to multi-vendor marketplaces, etc.
It's cheap to host and maintain, meaning less overhead for clients and myself.
