WordPress Website Setup


Why is this a “Bargain” Setup?

It’s a bargain in two ways:

  1. It’s a basic setup without any fancy bells and whistles, but it’ll get you started
  2. When you take advantage of my affiliate links you get a big savings. (Scroll down for that deal.)

Affiliate Links? What?

After spending years building websites, I’ve zeroed in on a few providers I feel confident in recommending. I’ve also agreed with them that, when I refer customers to them, they pay me a commission.

Their services don’t cost you anything extra, and they provide me with some revenue so I can charge you a lot less to set up your WordPress website.

Here’s what freelance writer Misty Suggs said after I helped her with a Basic WordPress Setup for her freelance site:

Susanna is extremely knowledgeable about the WordPress platform and has sharp insight into which themes to use. Her step-by-step instructions really make setting up a WordPress site fast and painless.I appreciated her friendly attitude and willingness to help me quickly find a theme I like. She went above and beyond what I expected.

Her WordPress Bulding Blocks system is easy to understand and follow. I highly recommend her!

It includes everything you need to get WordPress installed and running, without any fancy bells and whistles:

Communications Manager Shawn Vincent really enjoyed the process of working with me.

Here’s the deal with Susanna: she gets it.

As a business owner, the thing I value most about Susanna is that she manages up, helping me line up the resources I need for her to do the job. As a result, work gets done quickly, with a minimum effort from me.


Everything in the Bargain Package, Plus. . .

Choosing a Theme

Choosing a theme is one of the most challenging steps in setting up your website. There are so many to pick from — where do you begin?

Recently, freelance copywriter Shea McNaughton needed some help getting her professional website up and running. Here’s what she said:

“Susanna took the reins and built a fantastic website, leaving me to the business of creating my business. Never having built a website, I knew NOTHING about it and constantly asked her opinion. Being the pro, her opinion was extremely valuable, and I have a beautiful website to show for it.”

The Silver Package gives you personalized theme recommendations. I’ll ask you some questions about the look and feel you want, how you plan to use the site, and ask you for some links to sites that you like and dislike the look of.

Based on what you tell me, I’ll narrow down your theme choices to three.

The Silver Package gets you everything that’s included in the Bargain Package plus:

  • Giving you personalized recommendations for appropriate themes
  • Adding up to five widgets to your sidebar and/or footer areas
  • Setting up two additional Custom Menus
  • Setting up two email addresses for your domain

Price Without Affiliate Links

If you’ve not purchased your domain name, hosting or theme through the affiliate links, Silver Package price is $349.95.

Jackie Lange runs a business called Panama Relocation Tours. After I helped her redesign and modernize her website, she stated:

Susanna Perkins, of WordPress Building Blocks, helped to redesign my web site This is a wordpress web site which had the same look for more than 3 years so it was time for a facelift.

Susanna helped me identify a good word press theme, installed it and got it all configured. She has a keen eye for the little details that make a site look more professional and run more efficiently.

Good communications are essential during a web site project, whether it is a new design or a rebuild. This is the only way the “vision” for the site can come together. Susanna took time to understand what I wanted to accomplish with the site and made it happen seamlessly. She kept me informed via email during every phase of the redesign process. She made excellent recommendations for plugins which made the site look and work better.

I am very pleased with the results and with Susanna Perkins. My redesign came in on time and on budget. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a web site built or redesigned. She knows what she’s doing!
