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 I've been selling websites to businesses, mainly service based local businesses who have an outdated website / no website, and its been going ok, but some people have been telling me a few hundred bucks is too cheap and I've gotten some clues it is, too.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".

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
