We get to know your business to create a custom site that aligns with your brand and supports your objectives.
We specialize in custom WordPress websites that are user-friendly, responsive, SEO-optimized, and secure.
Our powerful hosting platform includes nightly backups, monthly theme/plugin updates, and a free SSL.
Website Launch & Beyond
Once your new website is live, we can continue to help with ongoing SEO support, fresh content development, secure hosting, affordable retainer packages for ongoing updates, and more. Or we can train you to ensure you manage your site with confidence!
Inclusive, Accessible, Compliant.
Accessibility is good for business, and compliance is required for everyone. Noncompliant and inaccessible websites can face legal consequences. We partner with accessiBe to help our website clients take an inclusive approach and comply with web accessibility guidelines.
How Much Does It Cost to Build a Custom WordPress Website?
Many factors can swing the pricing pendulum for your new website! They include size (number of pages), site complexity, desired functionality, content creation needs, integration requirements, ongoing maintenance, and more. Generally, a custom WordPress website can cost between $5,000-$20,000, depending on various factors.
We offer a no-obligation discovery call to discuss your vision and provide a personalized proposal tailored to your needs and objectives. Learn more about the factors that impact website pricing in this blog post.
How Long Does It Take to Build a Custom WordPress Website?
Developing an average-sized custom website with Higher Information Group can take anywhere from two to six months, provided the client is responsive. Clients play a critical role in project timelines! Along with client responsiveness, the size and complexity of the website also affect the timeline. Our team has an established and very efficient process in place, and we’re faithful to it. The steps are clearly outlined when we kick off each project, and clients understand what is expected of them to ensure the process moves along smoothly.
What About a Domain?
If you are just getting started and don’t currently have a domain for your website, we can help with that. Want to explore domain availability? Check out GoDaddy.
Will You Provide Website Hosting?
You bet! Although it is not a requirement, we highly recommend you host with HIG! We offer the gold standard of WordPress hosting through Flywheel. A standard website hosting fee runs about $35 per month and includes nightly backups, monthly theme and plugin updates, and SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) security technology.
Do You Use Website Templates or Themes?
If you are interested in the cookie-cutter approach, you’re out of luck! Our websites are designed from scratch based on each client’s needs and objectives. Our intention is to understand your business and your objectives and build a website that aligns with your values and resonates with your target audience. Your new website will be 100% unique and in alignment with your brand identity.
Will You Manage My Site?
We’d be happy to manage your site for as long as you need us. Much like our overall custom approach, our website clients have options based on their needs. We offer different retainer packages for ongoing content and design updates, depending on the size of your site and how often you’ll need changes or additions. If you believe that your need for changes will be rare, we can always just invoice you based on how long the work takes. Of course, if you’d like to make your own updates, we offer training that will teach you how to perform the functions that matter to you and provide step-by-step instructions via custom videos for reference.
Will My Website Be Mobile-Friendly?
Absolutely. All our websites are designed to be responsive and adapt to different screen sizes and devices. With the increased use of smartphones and tablets, this is a critical component of today’s websites. Responsiveness also impacts user experience (UX), and search engines like Google prioritize mobile-friendly websites in their search rankings!
Can I Update My Site Myself?
You sure can! Although our sites are custom-designed, our WordPress websites are easy to update and maintain. If you’ve ever needed to make a simple change or add to your website but can’t because it’s too complicated or the developers are holding you hostage and have things too locked down, we feel you. At HIG, many website clients prefer that we manage their sites and make changes and updates on their behalf. However, most of our clients want to update their websites easily if the situation calls for it, and with WordPress, they have the flexibility to do just that. Users can easily update content, add new blog posts, etc. Plus, if they choose, we’ll even train you to perform the functions that matter to you and provide step-by-step instructions via custom videos for handy reference.
(We highly recommend keeping your site updated with fresh content after launch, especially if you want to gain authority with search engines.) Check out our blog post on 5 Reasons Why Regularly Updating Your Website with Fresh Content is Vital.
Do You Build E-Commerce Websites?
We don’t build e-commerce websites. We believe in leaning into what we do well, and e-commerce sites are not an area we choose to specialize in. Our skills, experience, and passion focus on responsive WordPress websites that elevate brands through strong design, great user experiences, and content that drives conversions. There are many agencies and developers with expertise in the area of e-commerce, and we leave this fine work to them.
Why Clients Choose Us
At the heart of our service is a consultative approach. We’re fueled by our passion for what we do and that same enthusiasm loves making our clients shine! We get to know your business and understand what you’re about, so that we can craft an innovative website that conveys the intangible value your brand delivers and provide positive experiences for your visitors.
