Starter Website – WordPress

If you need a small WordPress website and you want to get it “Launched already!” the collaborative website build is a great way to go. We will get together at your office or ours and in one afternoon, we will start the website right in front of you, and build it out with your input and direction. We will complete the website off-site, then call you to walk through a review and updates before launching. Setting up in WordPress gives you a foundation for a site you can build out in the future.

We will coach you in how to make updates and follow up a week after launch with a call to fix any small issues.

Put “having a business but not a website” behind you! No more apologizing to potential clients for not having a website. No more awkwardness when people ask how to contact you. Put “having a business but not a website” behind you!

FAQs

Who is a typical client for the Starter Website?

  1. Businesses that  need a small professional website now, and are planning to expand that site in the future
  2. Businesses that plan to  maintain and expand the site themselves, but want help getting it set up.
  3. Businesses on a complete time crunch. We can get the website built just as soon as both parties can schedule a 5 hour window.
  4. Businesses that see the need for a full SEO investment in the future and want WordPress to make that possible

How soon can we get a website built?

Call us on (415) 305 6050. we can do it as soon as we can both find a

  1. A five hour opening on both our schedules 🙂
  2. Two days for the review and updates

Can I update the website myself after we build it?

Yes. We will coach you as part of the process.

Can we add more pages to the website later?

Yes. This is one of many strengths of WordPress. Future pages will inherit the design of current pages.

Couldn’t I just build the website myself?

If you are digitally confident then ‘yes’. If Hosting & FTP & XML & Child themes are familiar to you. But the majority of our clients are business owners whose expertise is in something other than creating a website. Building a website seems to take them  take 5 months, 5 days, 5 minutes and 5 hours:

  • 5 months of saying they will get around to it on your own,
  • 5 days of trying to build a website and being overwhelmed by the choices
  • 5 minutes to call us
  • 5 hours of getting the website built with us.

Why wouldn’t everyone build their website this way?

Well… That’s a good question for the other web developers. Let us know if they tell you.

What are the pros and cons of building the website this way?

Upside:

  • You will come out of this with a GREAT looking 6 page website
  • If you happen to be in a completely niche business with a unique name, your site may do well in Google.
  • Your site is in WordPress so you are perfectly positioned to expand the site when you are ready

Downside:

  • 6-page websites are not going to be competitive on Google.
  • 6-page websites put all of your services on one page with a paragraph each. Better to give them a page each
  • People who search for your services without knowing your name will probably not find you.

What is the Cost?

There are 3 parts to the cost – Time, Money and Energy

  • Time: We will need your time for about 9 hours in this process.
  • $1500 – 6 pages, 12 images, 1 slideshow
  • Energy – we believe this is the lowest stress way  for you to get your website built.
