WordPress Web Design

As a WordPress website design company, I get a lot of questions about WordPress. People want to know if it’s the right platform for their business, what the benefits are, and how much it will cost. In this blog post, we’re going to answer some of those questions so you can make an informed decision about whether WordPress is the right platform for you.

Why I choose WordPress

WordPress is a content management system (CMS) that enables you to create a website or blog from scratch or to improve an existing website. It’s estimated that WordPress powers 34% of all websites on the internet, which means there’s a good chance you’ve already visited a WordPress site without even knowing it!

 

One of the reasons WordPress is so popular is because it’s free to use. That doesn’t mean there are no costs associated with using WordPress – you will still need to pay for things like hosting, a domain name, and any plugins which you may need along the way – but the software itself is free, unlike other software like WIX or Squarespace which have monthly subscriptions.

 

Another reason I choose WordPress over other platforms and is a good choice for many businesses is that it’s easy to use. I build all of my websites using a visual builder, this allows you to take full control after the website is built, so if theres any tweaks or changes you’d like to make down the line you can do so without having to worry about being too techy!

How much do your websites cost?

When it comes time to create a website, one of the first questions that often comes up is “how much does it cost?” It’s a valid question, and one that doesn’t have a single answer. The cost of a website can vary greatly, depending on a number of factors.

Some of the factors that can affect website cost are:

– The size and complexity of the website

– The amount of content (text, images, videos)

– The number of pages

– The use of audio or video

– The need for ecommerce functionality

– Ongoing maintenance and updates

In general, simple website designs with minimal content can cost as little as £300 if you’re looking for a 1-page website. More complex websites with more content, for example, a 5-8 page website will cost roughly £800 then if you’re looking for a larger website with eCommerce functionality and around 20 products will cost around £2500.

On top of the website cost, you will need to take hosting into account, there are some great deals around, I tend to recommend 1&1 ionos who have plans as litle as £1/month, if you’re looking to set up your own plan, they provide great support and fast servers, there are always other options like Bluehost and GoDaddy too who are great options also.

Why choose me to build your website over a website builder like WIX or Squarespace?

When it comes to building a website yourself, it can often take a long time to learn how to use the software on sites such as WIX or Squarespace, they also have a monthly cost of around £30/month normally which all adds up!

Having a bespoke website built by myself, you’ll end up with a website that looks amazing, is easy to manage, and is able to grow with your business. Not to mention, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your website is 100% yours, rather than being held captive.
