How do you know if you really need a custom theme? Well, there are a few questions you can ask yourself to help determine which path to take.
- Does your business require a unique site design?
- Is your budget $5,000 or more?
- Does your site have more than four pages?
- Do you need more than simple content pages and blog posts (forms, integrations with external systems, interactive elements, online store, etc)?
If you answered yes to all of the questions above, you will most likely need a custom theme. If you answered yes to one or two of the questions above, a custom theme is worth exploring but might not be necessary. You can also start with a pre-built theme and make some changes depending on your goals and requirements. We should discuss both options and figure out what will work the best for your business and your budget.
Developing a custom theme takes 6-8 weeks and starts at $5000. Please note, this does not include website design. Luckily, I know some talented designers who are well-versed in WordPress.
