The Average Cost of WordPress Websites
When we’re approached by new clients, we’re often asked how much it will cost to build a website from scratch, or how much it will cost to migrate an existing site to the WordPress platform. In short,the cost of WordPress websites depends on the unique requirements of the specific business and their long-term goals.
There is no fixed price because there are various factors involved in the development process that will determine how much a web development company will charge. However, we can look at some averages to give you an idea of what you can expect to pay, and what kind of service you will get.
Cost of WordPress Websites: Location
Where your company is based should influence your choice of a Tampa web design company. For example, if you live in the US, it’s best to go with a US-based web designer. Having website designers that know your country and can speak your language fluently is always an important consideration.
It’s true that you could find a designer in another continent that will design your WordPress website for around $300 or less, but the design and language style will probably not be what you’re after.
Paying For Quality WordPress Websites
For a custom-designed, five to eight-page website from a reputable designer in the US, you can expect to pay around $2000 to $5000 for a decent website, depending on their experience. For a website that will represent your business for a number of years, paying this much more for a full website design is necessary if you want a site that will help your business, not hinder it.
When you pay for a quality designer, they’ll work with you more closely on the development of the site, they’ll care more about the finished product, and will continue to work with you after the website is up and running.
For a standard business website, you can usually expect the following pages to be included:
- Home Page
- About Us
The web design firm should also set up your Google Analytics page, offer various hosting packages, set up your email, write content, optimize your website for search engines, and add various plugins to suit your marketing requirements.
The above price guide is based on industry averages. For more complex designs and functionality, you may have to pay more. For more detailed information about the cost of WordPress websites, maintenance plans, and marketing strategies, contact us for a free quote.
