WordPress

We specialise in building beautiful and effective websites, using the world-leading open source content management system, WordPress.

We love using WordPress because it enables us to build feature-rich bespoke websites that perform well. Our clients not only love how their websites look, but how the performance and capabilities within the platform have helped to grow their online businesses.

There’s a reason some of the biggest brands in the world trust WordPress. Powering over 40% of websites globally, we’re confident that your new website will be in good company with the 455 million websites currently using the platform.

Having a WordPress website is beneficial for many reasons:

  • It’s loved by search engines
  • It’s easy to use
  • There’s an extensive network of support available for it
  • It’s highly scalable so it can grow with you
  • It’s highly functional and incredibly secure
  • It works well with custom plugins (and because it’s Open Source, there’s lots available)

Our team of web developers have decades of combined experience in WordPress. We’ve never wanted to be one of those agencies that builds you a bespoke website on an obscure or complex platform that means you’re forever tied to us, so we work in the industry-recognised best platform that empowers you to take control of your own website.

We want our clients to feel happy and secure with us, so once we’ve made your WordPress website you can choose to stay with us or we can give you free training so you can continue to update and host your own website. There’s no pressure, no hidden fees or waiting times for amendments.

Your website, your way…

Building your website in WordPress allows us to tap into countless additional plugins that seamlessly integrate to enhance the user experience and the capabilities of your site.

WordPress has over 54,000 free plugins, and our team will advise you on the best solution for your needs, and also make recommendations on which plug-ins to use based on our previous experience.

If you’re not sure what a plug-in is, it’s a bolt-on piece of software that enables us to enhance the features and functionality of your website. We use plug-ins for services such as online shopping or reporting, but they can support you in many other ways too.

WordPress works with a range of plug-ins suitable for:

  • SEO
  • Third-party integrations
  • CRM integration
  • E-commerce, such as WooCommerce
  • Calendars and booking systems
  • Reporting 
  • Customised forms

Hosting with WordPress

At Browndog, we’re fully committed to providing you with the most secure hosting environment to guarantee the success of your website.

Securely hosting your website not only keeps your business safe, but it also looks after your customers and your reputation. Additionally, security is an important part of your SEO strategy, as an unsecured website can negatively impact your search engine rankings.

How long does it take to build a WordPress website?

Building your WordPress website will typically take 12-16 weeks, depending on the availability of high quality content, the intricacies of your requirements and other factors, including your own time constraints. We’ll work with you to establish a project timeline before we begin and keep you updated at every stage.

How much does it cost to build a WordPress website?

We understand that it can be difficult to budget for a new website, particularly if this is your first one. That’s why we try to be as transparent and up front as possible with our pricing.

As with project timescales, there can be lots of factors to consider when quoting for your website. We’ll work with you to understand your requirements and build you a proposal that includes everything you will need.

Typically, we estimate that a brochure-style WordPress website that showcases your product/service information will cost between £6,000 – £12,000 depending on your design, functionality and volume of pages.

If you’re looking to build an eCommerce website (a place where people can buy your products/services), we’ll build WooCommerce into your WordPress website to give you the best functionality. Our eCommerce website development starts at £10,000 and will also be affected by the number of products and services you offer and the complexity of your requirements.
