How long does it take to build a website?

Excerpts from Bill Erickson:

“The short answer is: longer than you would expect, but don’t rush it. There are three main factors in a project’s timeline:

  1. How soon can they start?
    High quality WordPress developers are usually booked, so can’t start on your website immediately. There could be some delay from when you first hire the developer to when they actually get started.
  2. How long before a website is ready for review?
    Most designers and developers have a clear process for building a website, and can describe roughly how long it will take to get a website in your hands.
  3. How long before you can launch?
    This final factor is the biggest variable and depends largely on you, the client. It involves reviewing the website, making change requests, and finalizing content.

This information applies to the creation of a custom WordPress website. If you don’t need a custom website, there are faster and more affordable options. Here’s how to setup a WordPress website yourself. With a few hours of work you could have a basic website up and running.”
