This question always comes up. How much time does it really take to build a WordPress based website?
Sample site – www.yorbalindapropertylistings.com
Thank you for the use of images and text.
Buy and Setup hosting account
Time: 1 hour
Setup Email (if needed) Using Google Apps
Time depends on how many accounts and if teaching needs to happen
Minimum time: 1 hour
Initial Setup of WordPress and Theme:
Iinstall AgentPress 2 ChildTheme
More settings needed updating but not done
Time: 1 hour
Install and setup Plugins:
Genesis Simple Sidebars
Genesis Simple Slider
These are just what I installed and not all that should be there
Time: 2 hours
Now the hard part and the most time intensive
Starting out with the initial page structure. I built 5 pages for the site.
Vista del Verde
Need about page (not done)
Area pages took longer because I also created a custom sidebar (with plugin) for each page (3 total). Then for those pages I also created a custom IDX property widget
Time for those pages: 5 hours (approx)
CSS color and design changes mostly
Time: 3 hours (approx)
Write a few posts:
Find pictures for posts and featured image and generic content.
Time: 2 hours (approx)
Total Time = 15 hours
Is the site done?
Not even close. But at this point it is a good starting point for a Real Estate agent to start blogging and driving traffic.
How much does this cost?
