WordPress, Squarespace, Shopify and Wix – from a custom build to development & management of your existing site

Some of my clients have no idea where to start and others have got to the point where they need some professional help to finish the job!

Many are looking to improve the site speed, add a shop or they need monthly help to manage their site.

Starting From Scratch?

If you’re just starting out, as well as building a website for you I can also help you with all or any of the following:

– advice on which platform to choose (WordPress, Squarespace, Shopify etc)

– domain and hosting set-up

– sourcing stock or professional photography

– setting up e-commerce

– setting up & writing a blog

– setting up & integrating a newsletter

Site Development

If you need a monthly management package or simply want some help moving your site forward, I can help by:

– creating new pages

– adding a shop

– integrating your newsletter sign up

– improving your site speed

– managing plugins & updates

Laura worked on my Squarespace website and did some SEO work for my Google My Business. I would recommend her to anyone setting up or that already has a website but wants to increase engagement and content.

Laura made navigating the production of a website very straight forward with excellent suggestions and ideas that I hadn’t thought about.  I really valued her input and feel I have ended up with the website that I want projecting the qualities that are important to me.

What will it cost?

Until I speak with you and understand better exactly how I can help, it’s impossible to give you an accurate quote. However, I understand that it is helpful to have a general idea of costs and so I will try to break down some of my pricing principles below.

I am always happy to split payments over a few weeks or months to make things more affordable for you.

All my site designs, across all 4 platforms (WordPress, Wix, Shopify & Squarespace) are mobile responsive & can include a blog facility if needed.

I also provide you with training on how to edit & manage your site (in person or via Skype), including a PDF & some instructional videos.

My hourly rate is £55; I use this when doing ad hoc work on a client’s site (e.g: helping sort out a technical problem, adding & setting up a plugin, adding new content to an existing page).


The cost of a from-scratch website build can vary quite a lot depending on the platform you use & what you want from your build. Generally speaking, full, custom builds start at £1500 for WordPress & £950 for Wix, Shopify & Squarespace.

These are some elements which may increase the cost:

the scale of the build – number of pages)

the nature of the build – is it a straight-forward words & images website or will you need ecommerce, a membership area, a booking system etc?)

the process – do you want to send me all the content, some style guidelines & let me get on with it, or would you prefer a more in depth process, where you get the chance to give lots of feedback & we spend time pre-build looking at options for very element of the build?
