How much does a WordPress site cost?

This is a question we get at m2media all the time, and there is no real set answer. It is much like asking “how long is a piece of string?”. We like to compare building a WordPress site to building a house. Both have many variables that influence the final cost. Do you want 2 or 4 bedrooms can be compared to whether you want 10 pages or 100 pages.

Our basic WordPress websites start at around $2,400 and increase depending on additional features. Ecommerce WordPress sites for example average around $5.000

All packages include the following as standard:

  • initial consulting
  • multiple layout designs with revisions based on an existing theme
  • conversion of design into a working WordPress theme
  • responsive layout viewable of mobiles and tablets
  • installation and setup of plugins for contact forms, Google Maps, SEO
  • setup of menu structures
  • setup of all pages and addition of content (within reason)
  • testing

  4. Do you have a sitemap of all pages planned out?
  5. What special features are required? These could be an online store, document management, members only area
  6. Does your site require any online forms? If so, have the fields you wish to include ready

  8. Are there websites that you like the look and feel of?
  9. Have you got any existing marketing material/branding that the website should match?
  10. Are you able to provide logos and other graphics/photos
