WordPress – How Easy on a Scale of 1 to 10?
On a scale of 1-10 with 1 being easy and 10 being difficult, WordPress is probably a 3-4 in terms of difficulty building a website.
It’s fast and easy to use for those familiar with it, but if you’re brand new to using WordPress, it will take some time and education to get to the point of customizing your own website on the WordPress platform.
Lucikly, there are some great WordPress themes that you can install to make the WordPress platform much easier to use if you are a beginner to building websites.
SmallBiz WordPress Theme by Expand2Web
There are many free WordPress themes but if you are new to WordPress, it will be worth it to pay a bit extra to get a premium theme that will allow you to set up a WordPress site with much less effort. Expand2Web has developed a WordPress theme designed specifically for small businesses. You can learn more about it by watching the video below:
How Much Will It Cost??
Ok – so you can see from the video that the SmallBiz WordPress theme from Expand2Web has everything you need to create small business website easily. So what will this cost you? If you have done any research on the cost to get a website created for you, you probably know that many web designers charge $1,000+ for a simple small business website. That’s probably why you’re looking to build the website on your own. $99 is a small price to pay but you’ll need more than just a theme to get a WordPress site.
You Will Need Website Hosting
You may miss it on the Expand2Web website but if you want to buy the Expand2Web SmallBiz WordPress theme, you will need website hosting to install WordPress and the theme. For website hosting, I recommend HostGator. I’ve used HostGator for 10+ years for many sites and also host all my clients’ sites with HostGator. They consistently ranked one of the top web hosts in the world and they are US-based.
You can get web hosting from HostGator for only a few dollars per month. Just go to HostGator.com and purchase their cheapest plan called the Baby plan. It will be enough to host your WordPress site.

All you will have to do is login to WordPress to build and customize your site. If you’re interested in my help, just follow the steps above and then Contact Me for info on the next steps.
Need A Better Website?
The one downside to the SmallBiz Theme from Expande2Web is that it has a very plain and basic look. You can spruce it up with your logo and pictures but it’s still very basic. This may be plenty for you but if you are looking for a more unique and impressive design, you may be interested in my Complete Website Package. You can read about it here.
