6 Quick steps to your
brand-new website
  • 1. Consultation

    Consultation: I determine by telephone or on site which products are suitable for you and what I can offer you.

  • 2. Proposal

    After the consultation I will prepare an offer tailored to your needs. Up to this point my service is free of charge for you.

  • 3. Layout draft

    I will send you a layout suggestion and I will continue to develop it with your continuous feedback until you are satisfied.

  • 4. Implementation

    If the layout meets your expectations, I will start coding the pages in HTML, CSS and PHP. I create the layout and fill them with your content.

  • 6. Updates

    You can send me your change requests at any time. Especially convenient is my update package, with which I can take over your changes of content at any time, for a reasonable flat rate.

What does it cost to create a WordPress website?

The cost of creating the website depends mainly on the following factors:


  • Scope of the web presentation

How extensive is the web presence? How many individual pages are there? Should the web presence become multilingual?


  • Functions of the website

Do you need special functions, for example a catalogue, to present your products? Or would you like to be able to update your web site yourself?


  • Desired additional services

If required, I can create texts for you or purchase image material from photo agencies so that you can concentrate on the essentials. If you wish, I can supplement your Google company listing, check your external links or set up a web analytics service so that you can see what’s happening on your website.

The small print

Framework conditions and term definition

At the beginning of the project, I work out a schedule together with the customer that provides realistic processing times for the individual project steps. Together, both the customer and I make every effort to meet the schedule. If there are delays on the part of the customer, these cause a postponement of the schedule, the time period of which does not necessarily have to correspond to the delay. The customer will provide a project manager who will bundle the customer’s information and feedback and pass it on to me. A correction loop contains the customer’s information to me about collected correction requests for a project status (e.g. manuscript, design). I implement the collected correction requests and submit the new status for the next correction loop or for release. If the customer wishes to have services performed that go beyond those described in the offer, I will invoice these services additionally and according to time and effort.


The first half of the project amount is due for payment after completion of a major project milestone (e.g. concept, first online screen design, manuscript). The second half is due for payment at the end of the project (before the project is delivered).

Cost effective solutions

For start-ups and self-employed people with a small budget, a purchased theme is a good solution. There are many nice design templates which I can use as a base for your WordPress website. A modern website costs less than you think.


Compliant with data protection

Of course your website must also be DSVGO compliant and meet the new guidelines. I check your existing website and give you feedback on which errors you should definitely correct. I will also be happy to create an imprint and data protection for you.

*In accordance with paragraphs 1 and 3 of the Value Added Tax Act 1994, the invoice amount shown does not include VAT.
