Custom Website

Brand New Website

WordPress Installation

I will create for you a brand new web site based on WordPress. This involves installing WordPress for you on your web hosting provider, and then installing your WordPress theme. The WordPress theme is a collection of files that cause WordPress to render your website design exactly the way you want it to look and feel. If you don’t have a WordPress theme, I can recommend several creative Website designers who you can hire to create for you a website design to your liking. From the website design, I would create the WordPress theme which I would then install. A basic no frills site starts at $1000. Please see the notes below regarding some exceptions to this process.

Why WordPress?

WordPress now powers almost 20% of all websites on the internet. From small websites to large industrial strength sites. There are many reasons why it is so popular. The main reason, for you as a web site owner, is that WordPress makes it easy to go in and make changes, without hiring an expensive web developer. With a WordPress based site, you can easily do things such as change content, add pages, add items to menus, and change the styling. WordPress is the way to go!

Security

This package also includes having me install some WordPress plugins that make your site more secure. While there is no absolute guarantee that your site could not be hacked, with the plugins I install, you can sleep at night knowing that your site is virtually impenetrable.

SEO, Google Analytics

This package also includes plugins to enable google analytics on your site and to enable you to provide Search Engine Optimization, and to make the web pages of your site load really fast. You should know that Google now factors in the load time of your web pages into how high in the search results your pages are listed.

Training

I will spend an hour with you via either a telephone call or via Skype to show you the basics of the WordPress Dashboard. What is the Dashboard? It is where you log into to add pages, change content, add menu items, or make many other changes to your site.

Exceptions

There are certain web hosting providers that are not recommended to host a WordPress site. They are, but not limited to, Godaddy, OneAndOne, and NetworkSolutions. Unfortunately, I can not offer this package if you are planning on hosting your site with one of these providers.

I recommend BlueHost or Hostgator as inexpensive web host providers. For added security and speed, I recommend WPEngine. Please click on the tab above marked “WPEngine” to learn about this provider.

If you decide to get your web hosting from WPEngine and you get your account through my affiliate link, I will give you $100 off this package.

If your site requires additional functionality such as a shopping cart or a widget to capture name and email address for your mailing list, I can quote you a reasonable fee to include the additional functionality.
