Custom WordPress Website Development

Walking you through each step of the process, I’ll leave you saying “that was easy,” AND I won’t break your budget in the process.

Custom WordPress Website Design

Are you tired of cookie cutter template-based websites that look like everyone else's? So am I!

I specialize in custom designed WordPress websites that communicate your style. Design is my favorite part, so don't worry - your website will be unique to you and the style of your organization. I'll also give you options. Many website developers create one look and suggest that's the design for your site. I like to create 2 to 4 options for you to choose from - and then you get to select your favorite parts.

I then take this design and set it up as a website, using the VERY flexible Beaver Builder theme to set up your custom site with a design made just for you.


Website Timeline

Most projects I build take 2-3 months to complete. Rush projects are considered when needed.

Example website timeline

  • Weeks 1-2: Design Phase
    • Blue Lake Websites provides you with 2-4 homepage design mockups to select the style of your homepage and website.
  • Week 3: Design Revisions
    • I take your feedback and revise the designs with any changes.
  • Weeks 4-5: Site Development
    • Blue Lake Websites programs the website, installing WordPress and necessary plugins, building pages and turning the design files into a clickable website
  • Weeks 6-7: Content
    • I work with the client to populate the content of the website.
  • Weeks 8-12: Final Content & Launch
    • With the client, I continue to tweak content and to add any remaining content.
    • Site testing
    • Launch
    • WordPress Tutorial Session on making edits to the website

Beaver Builder Pagebuilder

I have fallen in love with the Beaver Builder page builder, an on-page intuitive WordPress plugin/theme that makes building and editing websites easy. Beaver Builder is a drag and drop interface featuring content modules for every task you may need: photos, text, slideshows, countdowns, icon sets, and much more.

I love how easy it is for my clients to edit their websites after the build and I provide one-on-one tutoring on how to make these website updates shortly after website launch.


Learn WordPress

Once the website build is complete, I will be your WordPress tutor to help you learn WordPress, Beaver Builder, and the features of your website. If you're within an hour of Sioux Center, Iowa I will come to you. If not, we can video conference to do the lesson.

How long will it take to learn WordPress?

Most of my tutorial sessions take just 1-2 hours based on the complexity of the website.

How hard is WordPress to learn?

Thanks to the intuitive nature of the Beaver Builder page builder, I'd call it "easy." And so would most of my clients. Almost every client I teach says the words "That was easy" or "That was easier than I thought it would be" as we wrap up the lesson.

Custom WordPress Website Costs

Since every website is unique, pricing is different for every project. I'd love to schedule a discovery call to learn about your project and get you a custom quote.
