So, I no longer offer WordPress freelance services or consultancy. If you want to work with me get in touch with us over at the Make Do WordPress Agency.
Back in 2005 I discovered a little CMS called WordPress while searching for tools to make my life as a freelance web designer easier.
After using WordPress to build a couple of sites I was hooked and have been using it to power my own website and client websites ever since.
Looking for what I charge and how to hire me for WordPress work? Skip to the bottom…
Experienced consultancy services
Over the years I have honed my WordPress knowledge and experience down to a few key services which have been tried and tested with clients all over the world. Using these skills I have helped businesses and individuals build amazing things with WordPress.
Custom Theme Design
Theme design and development is at the core of most WordPress projects. If you need a fully custom theme which is designed and built from scratch then I can help.
Premium Theme Customisations
I specialise in customising off-the-shelf premium themes – adding custom logos, images and colours that will transform any theme so it look less like an out-of-the-box product and more like a fully custom design.
PSD/HTML/etc to WordPress
If you are a designer, agency or freelancer or someone who needs to convert your existing website designs or sites to run on WordPress then I can help make that happen.
Fixes, Support, Upgrades & Migration
Need help with all-things-WordPress? Something broken? Something not right? Maybe you’ve been hacked? Can’t find the right plugin or theme for your needs? Let me know, I can find an on-demand solution for any WordPress problems you have.
Training & Workshops
I offer ready-made training courses in ‘WordPress theme design and development’, ‘Installing and maintaining WordPress’ and a workshop that covers the ‘Basic use of WordPress to run your website’. These can be done in-house at your offices. I also run classroom-style courses with Make Do. Bespoke training packages are available on request.
Installation & Hosting
I can install WordPress for you and help you get set up with the right kind of secure and cost-effective hosting for your needs. If you need a more robust hosting package you can hire MKDO Ltd to help set up a customised service.
WordPress Project Management
Too often users can dive into WordPress too soon and things can go a bit wrong. Are you using WordPress and is everything going haywire? You probably need the sort of help I can provide.
Site advice & Peer reviews
I’ve been using WordPress professionally since 2008 and before then I was a web designer working with large enterprise and small businesses. If you need a second opinion or help finishing a project then get in touch. I can often be found giving away this advice for free.
What do I charge?
Like most things, it depends on the job. But a normal WordPress website project for a business, product or individual would start at around £1500. Anything more advanced than that rises to £2000/£2500 and depends on the predefined specification. These are fixed cost projects and are the sort of things I work on all the time so I have a good system to judge how much a certain project will cost based on a basic specification and time-frame.
Daily rates, weekly contracts, travel & expenses
Day and week rates are negotiable and do not include expenses. If you’d like to know more then we need to talk so I can give you a price.
If you are in the UK and would like to discuss hiring me for a WordPress project then get in touch. I can work remotely but prefer a face-to-face at the start, middle and end of all projects.
