WordPress website design + build

website design that converts

Your website should work for you, not against you.
I focus on User Experience(UX) and User Interface(UI), to ensure that your website is easy to use, visually appealing, and engaging for visitors.

90%

of users leave a site because of a bad design.

72%

of users judge credibility based on design alone.

created with users + you in mind

No cookie cutter solutions here.
Every website and design is completely custom and built from scratch, to fit each business.

No templates. No pre designed themes.

Though no two sites are alike, I do make sure each site follows SEO best practice and UX/UI design principles. Each site comes with the following:

  • One year’s access to agency’s design, functionality & security plugins.
  • Coming Soon page and/or staging site
  • Site documentation and training
  • Standard SEO optimization
  • Google Search Console submission & business page
  • High fidelity mockup and prototype
  • 2 Rounds of refinement & revisions
  • Mobile Responsiveness

Frequently asked questions

I build websites exclusively with WordPress. It’s powerful, flexible and allows for growth.

I use Elementor Pro to cut costs on development and it has a great user friendly interface, for you to take over and feel confident doing so. 

Absolutely, I believe a website is never complete. In fact, I make changes to mine at least once a week!

I provide my clients with a website owners manual upon handover along with an hour training session on ways to keep your site up to date, and make changes or additions as needed.

This is a tough question to answer without scope. Which is why you’ll notice there’s not many prices on agency sites.

At Kultivate, our typical project prices range from $3,500 to $20,000.

For a rough estimate, you can schedule a free consult or shoot me an email with some details on what you’re looking for.

Your domain and hosting are NOT covered in the cost of the website design and build. 

A domain typically costs around $24 for a yearly renewal and a good hosting package around $300 a year.

When I say “good”, I mean a package that comes with an SSL certificate, daily backups and a private server that is beneficial for SEO, speed, security and performance optimizaions.

In addition to this, I use Elementor Pro to build a user friendly website that isn’t intimidating to update. As well as a paid security plugin to protect your investment. These are included in the first year, and then will incur an annual fee of $160.

Lastly, plugins that allow additional functionality of your website can also have some additional costs. The great thing about WordPress is you can find great free plugins, but if you like the comfort of a paid plugin, that can also be an additional yearly cost.

In short, be prepared for about $40/mo after the first year, to keep your website functioning and well maintained.

This varies from project to project and on the scope of work. A small project can be around 4 weeks for design & build, larger projects can take up to 12 weeks.

Response times, feedback and content, also have an effect on the overall time of completion.

Availability and communication are the biggest things. I’ll need you to make this process a priority and provide timely feedback.

In addition, I’ll need some insight and company assets such as logo, copy/text and imagery. 

Don’t worry, we’ll go over everything during onboarding and the discovery stage to make this as easy as possible for you.

In short, no. 

Due to the nature of my work, I only provide custom solutions that are suited for your business through our discovery process. 

It also ensures that everything provided is ethically sourced.

Sure do! I offer a variety of options to fit your needs. 

You’re website is an important investment that requires management and maintenance. But as a business owner, or operations manager you already have your hands full. 

Depending on your needs, I offer support at an hourly rate or as a monthly retainer.
