WordPress Websites

Ready Made. Professionally Designed. Easy To Edit.

Does your business have a website yet? If not, what’s holding you back from having one? Time? Money? Lack of knowledge? What if you could have a website for your business quickly and inexpensively WITHOUT having to learn a bunch of new skills?

My ready-made WordPress websites will give you just that – an inexpensive website that doesn’t skimp on quality for the sake of price and requires ZERO coding knowledge on your part to set it up or maintain.

I’ve pre-built each of these ready-made websites to the exact same standards as the custom designed sites I create for my clients. The only difference is that, instead of starting from nothing and building the site around your specific content, I’ve built a beautiful site that’s all ready to have your content added to it.

Since the site framework is already built and waiting for your content, I can offer my best design work at a MUCH lower cost than custom and with a relatively quick turnaround from purchase to launch to boot.

What Are The Benefits Purchasing a Ready-Made Website?

You will save money!
Custom website design starts at $1000 CAD for a standard site (with no store) and $1400 CAD for an e-commerce site.

You will save time (and time is money too, right?).
The turnaround time for custom website design is generally 6 to 8 weeks. With my ready-made sites I can generally have a working website online for you to approve in about a week once you’ve provided your content.

You own it.
As with all of my websites, ready-made or custom, your new website is a stand-alone WordPress website. You own it. For example, if you have your own store, you don’t have to worry about someone changing rules or algorithms and negatively affecting your sales like you might with certain other selling websites. You aren’t tied to any one web developer or company so you are free to hire someone else down the line to work on your site if you choose to. You are in control of your content.

You will get premium design for less.
All of my ready-made websites are designed in the exact same way and with the exact same care and attention to detail as I use when creating custom websites for clients.

Websites for Makers + Online Shops

These e-commerce sites were created for the small business owner who wants to start selling online or who wants to make the move from Etsy to her own, branded (and 100% owned by her) store.

If you ship your products and you’d like to have your website automatically get shipping rates from Canada Post or USPS, you can purchase the Automatic Shipping Rates add-on found in my shop.

Websites for Service Based Businesses

Service based sites are perfect for service providers and other small business owners that don’t require an online store. They will also work great for the small business owner who already has an established shop on Etsy (or similar), and will continue to sell there, but wants to be able to provide customers with more information than they can in their existing store.

Please note:

Hosting
Hosting is NOT included with your purchase. Should you require hosting, I personally use and recommend DreamHost* to all of my clients.

Modifications To Themes
Please note that modifications to the theme beyond adding your content are not included in the purchase price and will be billed separately if required.

The time from purchase to launch depends a bit on my workload at the time of purchase but generally once I have all of the content for your website I can have a live preview of your site ready for you to check out and approve in about a week. Once that live preview is approved, I can generally upload the site to your hosting the same or next business day and you will be ready to put it to work for you.

Before I can get started customizing one of the ready made sites for your business I will need to have all of your content. This means that I will need you to provide me with the text you’d like on each page as well as any images you’d like to replace the example images with. I will also need your logo file if you have one and any existing branding elements or colors that your business uses.

If you don’t have the text for your site prepared already, I will provide you with totally free customized worksheets with prompts to help you write it. Also, if you don’t already have professional photographs for your site, I will provide you with a copy of my resource list where you can find free or inexpensive images to add to your site.

Please keep in mind that I will need all of the content that will be included on your site BEFORE I can start work on customizing it. If you happen to take a while creating and gathering content it will increase the time it takes to go from purchase to launch accordingly.

At this time, I do not offer website hosting. If you don’t already have hosting, I personally use DreamHost for all of my sites and I always recommend them to my clients.

They have an awesome DreamPress plan that’s made just for WordPress. DreamPress comes with a free pre-installed SSL certificate, has built in caching, offers free daily backups and on-demand backups of your website, and it includes a free domain and free email hosting. They even automatically update WordPress for you so that you always have the most up to date version and all of the important security patches. The WordPress folks themselves even recommend them!

The DreamPress Starter plan starts at $16.95/month (USD) at the time of writing this and their starter plan is likely sufficient for anyone reading this so don’t feel like you NEED to have the more expensive plans. The DreamPress Plus plan does add free Jetpack Professional (which has some amazing features) if that’s something you’re interested in. The price tag for Plus is a little more at $24.95/month (USD) though.

DreamHost also has shared hosting that’s even less expensive but in most cases I really don’t recommend that you go with shared hosting.

The only way I would recommend it is if you have a super tiny website or you’re not using your site to generate income. Shared hosting doesn’t like big sites and is less reliable performance wise than other options.

My own sites are on a virtual private server (VPS) with DreamHost but VPS requires a bit more attention than DreamPress does. I’d recommend VPS for advanced users only.

Bottom line, for the vast majority of people reading this, DreamPress Starter or Plus are your best bets.

Disclaimer: That link to DreamHost is an affiliate link. That means that I will get a few bucks off my own hosting fees with DreamHost if you happen to sign up using that link. (You won’t pay extra if you happen to sign up with them using my link, in fact, sometimes they will even offer you a deal!)

If you don’t want to use an affiliate link, I still highly recommend them so, just google “DreamHost” instead and check them out that way.
