I would highly recommend Brett and the team at Stone Digital. They assisted us with building a new website which now allows for easier setup and customisation of pages and products which had been a pain point of ours for some time. The new site now loads very fast and overall is easier for our team to use. We specifically wanted custom, advanced integration with Hero Travel platform allowing for multi product bookings. Our new website uses custom designs to suit our brand whilst still being able to index well with Google. Brett and the team have been a pleasure to work with and are always on point. Would highly recommend.

I was introduced to Brett by an acquaintance. Brett was a very credible developer with excellent website, XML and CMS knowledge. When I went to Sydney, he came to the hotel cafe and had a very good meeting. In particular, my request was a multilingual EC site, but the development went smoothly. He always says “Feel free to get in touch if any questions throughout the process.” And he cares for me and follows up.

FAQ

How much does it cost to hire a WordPress developer?

The cost of hiring a WordPress developer will vary depending on:

  1. Developer’s Experience: More experienced developers typically command higher rates.
  2. Developer’s Location: Geographic location can impact pricing.
  3. Project Complexity: More complex projects generally cost more.

Hourly Rates and Project-Based Fees

  • Hourly Rates: Freelance WordPress developers and agencies might charge anywhere between $15 to $250 AUD per hour.
  • Fixed Fees: Both agencies and freelancers may offer project-based pricing. These can range from a few hundred dollars to significant five-figure sums, again showing a wide spectrum.

Stone Digital’s Approach

At Stone Digital, we position ourselves in the ‘sweet middle’ of this spectrum. We offer high-quality services at reasonable rates, avoiding both the excessive prices of premium agencies and the low-quality pitfalls of budget outsourcers. We believe this balance offers the best value for many businesses.

Transparent Pricing and Consultation

  • Package Pricing: We provide clear, package-based pricing for our services.
  • Initial Consultation: Schedule a consultation with us to find the right package for your project.

Further Resources

We’ve also created an extensive blog post that elaborates on the key factors affecting the cost of a WordPress website project. Additionally, we offer another insightful post featuring 28 real-world examples of specific website project costs.

How long does it take to build a WordPress website?

We generally estimate that a new WordPress project will take between 1.5 to 4 months to complete. This timeline is influenced by several key factors:

  1. Website Complexity: More complex websites require more time to develop.
  2. Information Delivery: The speed at which we receive essential materials like content and images.
  3. Feedback Process: The efficiency of our interactions during the feedback stage.

How do I choose a good WordPress developer?

When selecting a WordPress developer, look for a combination of technical expertise, a strong portfolio of previous work, and positive client testimonials. Ensure they have a clear understanding of your project needs and offer reliable communication. It’s also beneficial to choose a developer who stays updated with the latest WordPress trends and technologies.

What kind of support and maintenance do you provide?

We offer various support and maintenance packages tailored to your specific project needs:

  1. Monthly Security and Maintenance Packages
  • What’s Included: Regular WordPress updates, website health monitoring.
  • Pricing: Starting from $480 AUD ex. GST per month.
  1. Monthly Advanced Support Packages
  • What’s Included: This comprehensive package includes unlimited support requests and the addition of unlimited new features to your website.
  • Custom Tailoring: Each package is custom-designed for your website, with a digital roadmap to guide the development of upcoming projects and features.
  1. Hour Bundles
  • Description: This option allows for the pre-purchase of a set number of hours.

Note: We generally advise against this approach as it tends to be reactive rather than proactive in managing your website’s needs.

How much does a Custom WordPress website cost?

Pricing is tailored to your specific requirements, but as a reference point, our custom WordPress website projects typically start at $8,000 AUD. Additionally, we offer monthly Support and Maintenance Plans starting from $480 AUD per month.

What is WordPress custom development, and why do I need it?

WordPress custom development is the process of creating a custom website just for you / your business.

The alternative to custom WordPress development is using off-the-shelf WordPress templates or using do-it-yourself tools like Squarespace or Wix.

Custom development means your site is tailored to your exact needs and branding, setting you apart from those using generic templates.

It’s important to note that custom WordPress development is not suitable for everyone. It typically requires a higher budget and is more suited for businesses with a premium brand and specific, complex requirements.

At Stone Digital, we specialise in creating bespoke WordPress websites. Our expertise lies not in merely installing pre-made templates, but in developing custom, high-quality websites. Each site is carefully tailored to the unique needs of your business, ensuring a standout online presence.

Can you provide examples of custom WordPress websites you've developed?

Absolutely! Check out this page to view our portfolio of custom WordPress websites.

Otherwise you’re also welcome to view our overall portfolio page to see the wide variety of experience we have with all kinds of custom web development projects.
