Hi,

I have received some requests from some of my friends to build websites for them. Can you please give me the range?
I understand that for bigger organisations, one charges more.
Thanks.
Anthony.

I have done this and I took a look on line and some people are charging $2000.0 for a Wordpress site
I built a ten page website for £650.0 that's about $900.0

Than means that it has to take time. Are you the one giving the website content or what are you charging for?

It took very little time and I did not provide the content I provided the platform and a small amount of training 4 hours in total
I host the site on my servers and keep the software, i.e plugins updated
I can build a 10 page site in less than a day

You build the platform then you show them how to use the platform that's what you get paid for
The content has to be from them, its their site

Wow, that is pretty awesome Barry. So my role will be just training them after building it for them?
That is what we call profession, you are one!

Hi, Kindly clarify further. By $ 900, what exactly makes up the amount. What does it include? Do you also hand the website over to the client or?

It all depends what services you are going to offer, it's not just about building a site. You need to think about how many pages, backups, proofreading, image optimisation, keyword research, updates etc. What kind of support, will you be teaching them to use WordPress. It takes more time than you think!
This is a screenshot from one place that provides packages depending on requirements.

Do a Google search and see what others are charging. I know some members here have used what they've learnt here to develop a website building business rather than niche sites.

Thanks Kathy for your feedback. I understand that it has some technicalities. One of the best option is to refer them to WA. That is what I have come to learn.

Yes you can build websites for anyone if you know what you are doing. But that will have nothing to do with WA. The value of the website depends on how big and complex it is and the level of technical skill you have to use. The range for business websites here in the UK runs from a basic one pager at £400 up to many £1,000's.

We don't! Why don't you suggest each sign up with WA. You earn commissions for each referral! You, personally, can charge them, on the side. You can be your own Fiverr! LOL!

You mean you build websites for your clients for Free?

WA doesn't allow selling here...that would be SPAMMING. You, on your own, can do what you want. I don't charge others.

It actually depends on the client. Some do not want to do it themselves. Those who seem interested that am working with Wa, I refer them.
