WordPress Template Websites
WordPress is a website platform upon which you have complete access to customize a website yourself. Unlike CT Graphics’ Standard “By-the-Page” websites, these sites are not custom designed, but rather template-based. Thousands of different templates are available to make your site look the way you want it to. CT Graphics can help you pick out an appropriate template, create the site, and populate content on a minimum of five pages for you. Anything beyond that (additional pages, premium templates, customizing the template, creating special graphics, finding and installing plug-ins for the site, etc.) will be billed at an hourly rate.
- $100 per page (minimum 5 pages) WordPress basic as-is template installation, design, and setup
- $100 one-time in-person one-hour WordPress dashboard training (depending on location)
- $45 per any additional consecutive training hours needed
- $100 annual internet hosting fee
- $25 annual domain registration fee
Bottom Line (Pros:)
WordPress is a cheaper alternative to custom-built sites, and there are thousands of templates to choose from. WordPress blogs are the industry standard, and once completed, you have complete autonomy over your website.
Bottom Line (Cons:)
WordPress has somewhat of a learning curve to operate, and you are mostly locked-in to the template and plug-ins you choose. Customization is very difficult, and most WordPress sites look exactly like every other WordPress site.
