How much is a wordpress website worth these days?


If there are some good website designers in here that make a money out of website designing, I would like to have some help in here. I actually just recently got into web design and started a web design business. I've been selling websites to businesses, mainly service based local businesses who have an outdated website / no website, and its been going ok, but some people have been telling me a few hundred bucks is too cheap and I've gotten some clues it is, too.

1. my first client was my dad, he asked me why I was only charging a couple hundred. He brought in a guy he used to sell to (he's a flower wholesaler) that's been trying to sell him a website. He came in with his laptop, portfolio, pre-printed invoice for $2000, and actually had 2 or 3, 1 with a large down-payment, 1 with a financed plan, and one with some sort of website rental plan. I talked to him and he showed me his websites and he was just selling altered templates. For ex, I googled "wordpress florist template" and the first URL was the one he was trying to sell my father, he just very slightly altered him. anyways, my dad told me he had been doing good, and early in the day, he just goes out to businesses physical locations, makes calls and has a partner send e-mails. Then in the evening he goes home, smokes some weed and makes the websites. He had a pretty nice BMW. It have me the impression that I was undercharging, targeting the wrong market, or maybe everything altogether. I thought about it and changed some things, and did a little better.

2. I got a lead for a bricklayer, Had ended up asking him why his business (of 20+ years) has never had a website, and he told me because he doesn't have the technical knowledge and companies overcharge. I told him I'd get it done for $399, we talked it over, and worked out a plan for the website right there in FB chat. A few minutes after the convo about what he wanted on his website ended, he asked me when he starts the monthly payments. I was like, wait.. what? And he was asking me when he starts paying the $399 a month.. hmm? From $400 to $4800 a year...

3. I got a lead and they emailed me, not too sure from where, maybe CL, some classified ads, or CPC ads, asking me to replicate a website for an antiques store. I told the lady $499 since it wasn't e-commerce and she was literally asking me to replicate a website and that she had all her content. She later emailed me saying $4999 is okay, YES $4999, but "$5500 is doable if I need you to do something extra".

Re: How much is a wordpress website worth these days?


Nowadays specifically at the entry level – word-press website worth is becoming increasingly commodified and pressure is very much in the downward direction.

Working out how much you should be paying for a website remains a pain point for many small businesses though, as does finding someone reliable to build it for you in WordPress.

Why Choose WordPress Development

- User friendly
- Faster implementation
- Ease of maintenance
- Customized well and easy
- Affordable cost

WordPress is the most popular Content Management System nowadays. It's simple to use and very flexible in working. Here are a few reasons for WordPress popularity:
1. It is free.
2. Quick install
3. Easy use
4. Multi-functionality
5. Mobile access
6. Easy navigation
7. Image optimization
8. Social media integration
9. Tight security
10. Support websites of any size.
If you like to hire any for your website development services I strongly suggest Dotz Web Technologies, one of the best company for dotzweb.com

Re: How much is a wordpress website worth these days?


Hello, Web Designers! I in reality just as of late got into website composition and began a website architecture business. I've been pitching sites to organizations, principally benefit based neighborhood organizations who have an obsolete site/no site, and its been going alright, however a few people have been disclosing to me a couple of hundred bucks is excessively shabby and I've gotten a few pieces of information it is, as well.

my first customer was my father, he asked me for what valid reason I was just charging two or three hundred. He got a person he used to pitch to (he's a blossom distributer) that has been attempting to offer him a site. He came in with his tablet, portfolio, pre-printed receipt for $2000, and really had 2 or 3, 1 with an expansive up front installment, 1 with a financed plan, and one with some kind of site rental arrangement. I conversed with him and he demonstrated to me his sites and he was simply offering adjusted layouts. For ex, I googled "wordpress flower vendor format" and the main URL was the one he was attempting to offer my dad, he simply marginally adjusted him. in any case, my father disclosed to me he had been doing great, and at a young hour in the day, he just goes out to organizations physical areas, makes calls and has an accomplice send messages. At that point at night he goes home, smokes some weed and makes the sites. He had an entirely pleasant BMW. It have me the feeling that I was undercharging, focusing on the wrong market, or perhaps everything inside and out. I contemplated it and changed a few things, and improved.

I got a lead for a bricklayer, Had wound up asking him for what valid reason his business (of 20+ years) has never had a site, and he let me know since he doesn't have the specialized learning and organizations cheat. I let him know I'd complete it for $399, we talked it over, and worked out an arrangement for the site in that spot in FB visit. A couple of minutes after the convo about what he needed on his site finished, he asked me when he begins the regularly scheduled installments. I resembled, hold up.. what? What's more, he was asking me when he begins paying the $399 a month.. gee? From $400 to $4800 a year...

I got a lead and they messaged me, not very beyond any doubt from where, perhaps CL, some characterized advertisements, or CPC promotions, approaching me to repeat a site for a collectibles store. I told the woman $499 since it wasn't web based business and she was truly requesting that I repeat a site and that she had all her substance. She later messaged me saying $4999 is alright, YES $4999, however "$5500 is feasible on the off chance that I require you to accomplish something additional".

Re: How much is a wordpress website worth these days?


The only one case matters that, how much a website is actually worth to a client. Does the client rely want to generate business through online medium? If so, then first thing we think is the revenue, how much revenue ther client wants to make with brand new website.
Nobody can demand of 5k for a website that just states the business hours, in case if client is generating 250k in revenue every single year through your website then 5k is nothing for him.

Re: How much is a wordpress website worth these days?


It really depends on the level of complexity not only of the site but the sophistication of the end user.
