Our WordPress Web Design Services

The next step is figuring out how your WordPress web design services will start – through a template, or custom design.

1.) Template-based WordPress website design

The most cost-effective way to build a new WordPress site is to start with a pre-made website template.

There are thousands of WordPress themes available. Most even have an online demo to let you see the design before making your choice. Don’t worry though, we’ll help you find one that fits your brand!

There are a few downsides to using a pre-made website template, which include:

  • Templates are often developed to include dozens of style and layout options, of which you’ll only ever use one. This leads to a bloated codebase, which could negatively impact page speed and your ability to pass Google’s Core Web Vitals.
  • Templates are often maintained by their original developers, who may eventually stop releasing security fixes or feature improvements to the packages within the theme.
  • Templates are often hastily designed and developed, leading to mobile layout issues or browser compatibility issues that must be addressed by your WordPress web design company.

The starting price of a customized, template-based WordPress website is $3,750 and has a 2-3 week turnaround.

2.) Custom WordPress website design

If you aren’t interested in a website template, we can build you a custom theme within WordPress, instead. This is a common service offering of any custom WordPress web design agency.

This involves going through the process of creating design mockups that fit the unique look and feel of your branding.

Taking this approach allows you to see the design come together before our web developers build out your website.

However, this process is time consuming and results in a higher cost for your website design service.

The starting price of a from-scratch, custom WordPress website is $9,500 and has a 2-3 month turnaround.

Types of WordPress Website Projects

We have a large, onsite team of WordPress experts ready to help build out your future WordPress design.

Let’s go over how our team can help you start a new WordPress websiteredesign your current WordPress theme, or migrate an existing website into WordPress.

We can even provide basic website training to help you learn how to manage your website, create or edit web pages, update the navigation menu, and more!

When you start a new WordPress website design project with us, you can rest assured we’ll help you from start to finish!

Our team would be happy to show you examples of recent website redesign projects we’ve completed. You can also check out our best WordPress websites blog article for inspiration on your upcoming web design service!

3.) Migrating an existing website into WordPress

We have extensive experience migrating websites into the WordPress content management system.

Here are some of the website conversion projects we’ve worked on in the past:

  • Joomla to WordPress Migrations
  • Wix to WordPress Migrations
  • Weebly to WordPress Migrations
  • HTML to WordPress Migrations
  • Drupal to WordPress Migrations
  • Squarespace to WordPress Migrations
  • GoDaddy Builder to WordPress Migrations

These often become complex projects when the existing website has extensive content or custom functionality.

For example, if your current website has hundreds of web pages, we’ll need to plan for the migration of all that content into the new WordPress site. This often requires manually copying over all those pages, fixing image and PDF links, modifying internal linking structures, improving the HTML markup, and setting up 301 redirects.

Alternatively, your current website may have custom functionality that isn’t native to WordPress. If that is your situation, we’ll need to help you find WordPress plugins that provide similar functionality.

Our WordPress website design company can help you understand the scope of your website migration project before you make any decisions.

Our web development team is highly skilled in WordPress design, not to mention other CMS platforms, allowing us to provide an unbiased opinion for your project.

Here are some of the factors that our WordPress experts might consider:

  • How many pages need to be migrated into the new website?
  • What functionality does your existing website have that is missing from WordPress CMS?
  • How prepared are you for URL changes and 301 redirects?
  • Do you have experience utilizing the WordPress admin area?
  • How will the launch of your new website be coordinated, and will you need access to the old website afterward?

Custom WordPress Functionality

Our WordPress website design company has considerable experience extending the core functionality of the WordPress CMS. If you can clearly explain your required custom WordPress development needs, our web programmers can build it for you!

WordPress development services

Here are some of the custom WordPress web development services we’ve completed in the past:

  • We’ve built custom product builders using Vue.js and native WordPress functionality.
  • We’ve greatly improved page speed on databases with enormous wp_posts tables.
  • We’ve built out API integrations to handle data transfers.
  • We’ve designed custom themes and developed custom plugins.

WordPress performance improvements

We have a lot of experience improving the performance and page speed of WordPress websites, too! This especially applies to those websites with incredibly large databases due to wp_posts table sizes getting out of hand.

Our web developers can review your entire website architecture, from your WordPress theme and plugin choices, to the configuration of your web hosting service.

Here are some of our web designers’ capabilities, visible in our portfolio, within the WordPress platform:

  • Creation of custom post types for unique functionality.
  • Integration with Vue.js for dynamic web applications.
  • Intimate understanding of WordPress database structure for speed improvements.
  • Ability to help websites pass Google’s Core Web Vitals.

WordPress FAQs


How does a custom WordPress design differ from a template-based design?

A custom WordPress design is crafted from the ground up, tailored to your brand’s unique requirements and vision. A template-based design utilizes a pre-existing WordPress theme, which is then customized to suit your branding and content. Developing a website from a template is typically quicker and more cost-effective.


Why should I use WordPress?

There are many reasons why WordPress is a good choice for building and managing a website or blog. Here are some of the main benefits of using WordPress include:

  • It’s free and open-source: WordPress is a free and open-source content management system (CMS), which means that you can use it to create and manage a website without incurring any upfront costs, other than web hosting and a domain name.
  • It’s easy to use: WordPress has a user-friendly admin area that makes it simple to create and manage content, even for users with little or no technical experience.
  • It’s flexible and customizable: WordPress has a wide range of themes and plugins that allow you to customize the appearance and functionality of your website. This makes it easy to create a website that is tailored to your specific needs and goals, such as selling online, offering memberships, adding contact forms, and much more!
  • It has a large and active community: WordPress has a vast community of users, developers, and designers who contribute to the project and create resources and support for WordPress users. This makes it easy to find help and guidance when you need it.
  • It’s SEO-friendly: WordPress is designed with search engine optimization (SEO) in mind, and includes features such as clean URLs and the ability to easily add metadata and titles to your content. This can help to improve the visibility of your website in search engine results. We also like to recommend the Yoast SEO plugin for WordPress sites.

Will my template-based WordPress site look like many others on the web?

The customization of the template to match your branding (logo, colors, content, images, etc) often results in a unique look and feel, specific to your company.


How much input can I have in the design process?

Your input is invaluable to us. Whether you opt for a custom design or a template-based approach, we collaborate closely with you to ensure the final site aligns with your expectations and goals. Please understand a template-based approach will have limitations, both from working within the confines of the theme and a reduced development budget.


How long does the WordPress design and development process usually take?

Template-based WordPress designs can be completed within a few weeks, depending on the extent of theme customization and additional functionality. Custom WordPress designs generally take a few weeks to a few months, depending on the project’s complexity.


Are the WordPress sites you design mobile-friendly?

Absolutely! Every WordPress site we design is responsive, ensuring a seamless browsing experience on tablets, smartphones, and desktops. For the most part, custom designed WordPress sites have better responsiveness across a wider range of screen sizes.


Will my WordPress website be search engine friendly?

Yes, we integrate several SEO best practices throughout our design and development process. Plus, WordPress has a wide range of SEO plugins that can further optimize your site for search engines. SEO is not a one-time service though. If ranking in search results is important to you, please be prepared to have a monthly budget available for technical, on-page, and off-page WordPress SEO services.


Do you offer ongoing support and maintenance post-launch?

Yes, we offer WordPress maintenance and management services to ensure your WordPress site remains updated, secure, and optimized. This includes regular updates, backups, and technical support!


Can you showcase some WordPress sites you’ve previously designed for small businesses?

Certainly! We’re proud of our portfolio and can show you a variety of WordPress sites we’ve designed across different industries, catering to both custom and template-based requirements.


What’s the difference between WordPress.org and WordPress.com?

WordPress.org and WordPress.com are two different platforms that are both powered by WordPress software. There are some key differences that you should be aware of, though.

WordPress.org is a self-hosted platform that allows you to download and install the WordPress software on your own web hosting account. This gives you complete control over your website, including the ability to install custom themes and plugins, or even modify the source code.

WordPress.com is a hosted platform that provides a turnkey solution for creating and managing a WordPress website. It includes hosting, a customizable website builder, and a variety of themes and plugins. However, it does not allow you to modify the source code.

Here is a summary of the main differences between WordPress.org and WordPress.com:

  • Ownership: With WordPress.org, you own your own website and have complete control over it. With WordPress.com, you do not own your website and are subject to the terms of service of the platform.
  • Hosting: With WordPress.org, you are responsible for finding your own web hosting and installing the WordPress software. With WordPress.com, hosting is included and you do not need to worry about installation.
  • Customization: With WordPress.org, you have complete control over the customization of your website, including the ability to install custom themes and plugins. With WordPress.com, you are limited to the themes and plugins that are provided by the platform.
  • Cost: WordPress.org is free to use, but you will need to pay for hosting and any additional themes or plugins that you use. WordPress.com has a range of pricing plans that vary based on the features and services that you choose.

Overall, WordPress.org is a good choice for users who want complete control over their website and are comfortable with the technical aspects of managing a self-hosted website. WordPress.com is a good choice for users who want a turnkey solution for creating and managing a website and are willing to trade some flexibility for the convenience of a hosted platform. We recommend you choose WordPress.org.

Incredibly responsive, fast, and professional. They quickly understood the issue we were having with our site, which was fairly complicated, and were able to resolve it. They kept us updated in lay terms along the way so that we could understand how the issue was progressing.

Corey was absolutely amazing in helping me with my issue. He was encouraging as we worked through things that to me were huge, but he made them seem small. Will definitely use WebCitz again!!!

WebCitz helped the Oshkosh Area Humane Society with our new website and they were great to work with. Responsive, professional and affordable. I think the biggest perk for us was having someone local we could talk to for assistance instead of long wait times. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking to start up or revamp their website.
