I’ve been developing WordPress websites since the first WordCamp back in 2006! More than 60 million people have chosen WordPress to power the place on the web they call “home.” WordPress Content Management Software (CMS) offers beautiful designs, powerful features, and the freedom to build anything you want. As they say, WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time.
Both Old and New Technology
While I started building HTML websites and still offer maintenance for those old sites, I can also create Wix and Squarespace hosted websites if this will serve your needs. The bottom line is that I’ve put in my 10,000 hours+ building various kinds of websites so you can be sure I can help you make the right choice for your business.
I discuss in detail various hosting companies in this article from my blog but the short answer is: SiteGround’s StartUp plan is simply the best, low-cost hosting for small businesses and nonprofits. Check them out. And here’s a Link to complete instructions to set up hosting at SiteGround.

Join Our Monthly WordPress Meetup group here. New to Meetup? It’s a really cool technology and it’s free to join. Our Santa Cruz WordPress meetup provides you with an opportunity to network with more than 600 other local WordPress fans and developers. We cover the cost for the group and usually charge $5 per meeting to help with event overhead and room rental.
Not sure what to do? While I don’t charge new clients for our initial meeting, I’m happy to provide advice at my usual rate of $75 per hour. Deciding which way to get your business online is a big, frequently expensive step, so it’s a good idea to understand all your options before you take the plunge.
How much does it cost?
I charge my clients by the hour for the simple reason that some people are well-organized and know what they want while others like to have options and make changes until they have exactly what they envision. Simple WordPress sites take between 5 and 10 hours; many take 10 to 25 hours or more. I charge $75 per hour for businesses; $60 per hour for nonprofits with 501c3 status.
