Coding a WordPress website from scratch. This takes anywhere from 5 to 12 weeks. A good freelance developer would charge up to $60/hr, so custom development alone would cost anywhere between $12k to $50k. Design takes anywhere between 2 weeks to 6 weeks, strategy and planning about 3-4 weeks so adding it all up a custom website would be between $18k to $80k.
Buying a WordPress, Squarespace or Wix template online and customize it. Design and development for this solution would be any where from 1 to 4 weeks, so it would cost $4k - $16k. The designer would work closely with the developer to make it look custom. This is a good option for companies who do not have the resources to pay for custom design & development expertise. Anyone who asks for a price in this range will use a template.
