Lesson 2:

How lucrative is the WordPress website design business?

 

Basically, the cost of a WordPress site can be broken down into the following categories:

 

+ WordPress hosting

+ Domain Name

+ Design

+ Plugins and Extensions (Apps)

 

Hosting:

To create a self-hosted WordPress site, you need web hosting to store your files.

 

Every website on the internet needs hosting.

 

This is your website’s home on the internet.

 

Domain name:

Next, you will need a domain name.

 

This will be your website’s address on the internet, and this is what your users will type in the browser to reach your website (example, facebook.com, or, google.com).

 

Designing your site:

With WordPress, there are tons of free website templates available that you can use (to design your website).

 

However, if you want something more advanced/custom, then you can purchase a premium template or have one custom-made, which will raise the cost.

 

Plugins:

There are 40,000+ free plugins for WordPress.

 

These are apps and extensions for your websites.

 

Think of features like contact form, gallery, etc.

 

So, while you can build a website with just the hosting and domain cost, based on your situation, you may end up paying for additional tools and services.

 

That’s why it’s often confusing for people to find out the real cost of a WordPress website.

 

So, depending on the needs of your clients, your cost to start a WordPress website can range from $100 (#36,000), to $500 (#180,000), to $3,000 (#1,080,000), to even as high as $30,000 (#10,800,00), or more.

 

It’s important to know what type of website you are building, and what you’ll need for it, because, that will directly affect your cost.

 

Now, given the fact – according to some sources – that not less than 140,000 websites are built everyday… you can see the huge market out there for you in the website design business!

 

Now, the website designing business is good…

 

But, why WordPress?
