Frequently Asked Questions
What is your pricing structure?

Because every project is unique, I prefer to give individual price estimates to each client. Pricing is based on the complexity and needs of the site, number of pages, content, and so on. These starting prices are for development only. Total website cost will depend on the designer that you choose to work with and their design fees. Need a designer? I’d be happy to share my list of super-talented ladies!

Typical Starting rates for WordPress development:

Blog Only: $1000
Website Only: $1400
Website w/Blog: $1600



What platform & framework do you work with?

All of my sites are custom built using the WordPress platform, which is an easy-to-manage, SEO-friendly, secure, open-source CMS. It has the functionality and capability to handle any type of website.

I develop WordPress themes using the Genesis framework (Read more about why I do that here). Basically it’s how I can guarantee clients that their websites are going to last and continue to function properly as WordPress grows and changes.



Can you give me an overview of the design process?

1. Contact us for estimate and timeline details.
2. Sign contract, make 1st payment, and get on the schedule.
3. Send completed proofs, content, and files prior to start date.
4. Make 2nd payment and then theme development begins on private test site.
5. Site testing, final revisions, and 3rd (final) payment.
6. Site installation on client’s domain and video tutorial sent.
7. Project completion!



Do you have any hosting recommendations?

Oh I sure do! My recommendation will always be SiteGround.com. They are amazing! Their sites are blazing fast and they have the best, most knowledge customer service of any host I’ve worked with. Don’t just take my word for it, this unbiased article shows how SiteGround stacks up against the competition.

For a full breakdown on how to choose the right webhost for you, read my blog post here.



Is content entry for my site included?

Yes and no… I insert as much content as necessary to test the layout and functionality of the site. If your content is not ready by the time the website is coded, I will insert dummy text as a placeholder and you can switch it out with your content when you’re ready.

If you’d rather have me input your content site-wide, I am happy to offer those services for an additional fee.



Will I be able to make site changes on my own?

Yes! WordPress is an extremely easy to use system and you will have the full ability to update your content as much as you’d like, without needing any knowledge of web coding. I will provide you with a customized video detailing step-by-step how to make your site updates.

Revisions outside the scope of the content may require additional fees. Contact your web designer for details.



I need tweaks done on my current site. Can you help?

Because every developer has their own unique way of coding a site, I can only offer revisions on sites developed by Hello Monday.
