I operate a simple pricing system for WordPress powered sites as they can work on a modular system. The base price for a WordPress website is just £495.00 (vat not applicable).
There are literally thousands of add-ons available for WordPress, most of which have a free and paid version. I charge a flat fee of £25.00 to install and configure each plugin, although I will install free plugins for you to test at no charge unless you decide to use them. Many plugins such as the free SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) plugin from Yoast are considered essential and are installed and fully configured free of charge (free version) with each website.
Types of plugin include:
- Booking Engines
- Restaurant & Food Management Systems
- Media Players & Viewers (Galleries & Streaming)
- E-Commerce Platforms
- Jobs Boards
- Bulletin Boards & Chat Forums
- Social Media Interactivity Systems
- Security and Firewall Systems
and many, many more……….
All WordPress sites are mobile and tablet friendly, which effectively give you two websites for the price of one. Many of my sites when viewed on a mobile device can be used as “apps” when saved to the home screen.
Whether or not your site is e-commerce driven, I strongly recommend that you invest in an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificate as these are becoming much more attractive to search engines. Your site will then be located via https:// instead of the usual http://. SSL certificates usually last from 3 to 5 years and cost as little as £59 per year, including installation.
E-Commerce websites are priced individually according to requirements.
Hosting & Support
All prototype and test sites may take a while to load as they are located on a low power server. Once you have confirmed that your site is ready for launch I will transfer it to a very fast and high powered server to ensure 99.9% uptime. The cost of hosting and ongoing maintenance (plugin & security updates and installs) is £195.00 per annum which can be paid in monthly installments of £16.25 per month via Direct Debit if required.
SEO (Search Engine Optimisation)
I do not offer a dedicated SEO service due to time constraints. If I am unable to do the job properly I will not offer the service. However, with WordPress powered sites the Yoast SEO plugin does a magnificent job and I would strongly advise you upgrade to the premium version which is excellent value for money.
