How long does it take to create a new WordPress website from scratch?
WordPress development isn’t a simple and linear process. To get it right, it takes time and effort to be sure that the final result will deliver on your expectations.
The complexity of the WordPress development is also a factor in how long the website will take to develop. A basic website with minimal content and pages might only take six weeks. However, a more complex website with a well-planned user journey backed by strategy and research will take longer. You should expect a timeline of approximately 12-16 weeks.
At Rysen, we follow a clear process to ensure we dot every i and cross every t as we build your WordPress website. Our thorough approach means that you get a website that is absolutely aligned to your business goals.
In the early stages of your website build we dive deep into research and analysis. We want to understand your brand and what makes you tick as well as what your competitors are doing and who your customers are. It’s really important that we address your customer pain points through the website and position you at the right level in the market. Our process includes market research and persona audits to get all the information we can to make smart and informed decisions.
With that information we build a strategy and a plan to give your website project clarity and direction. It’s so tempting to jump straight from research into design but the strategic part of the process is one of the most important elements so it can’t be overlooked. At this stage we also map your user journey and create intensive user personas. We resolve technical, design and UX concerns and considerations within the strategy to ensure we don’t hit any hurdles when we reach these milestones in the process.
At the design stage, we are designing for a number of elements - namely, user experience, user interface, functionality and responsiveness. These elements don’t happen in a vacuum, they go hand-in-hand with our design team working as a cohesive unit to create an optimum design that will deliver conversions. We ensure that your website will work across different devices and screen sizes and we always keep the end user at the front of our minds.
One we have pinned down all the elements of design, we start to build your WordPress website with a simple and flexible CMS, with both optimum front-end and back-end development.
Building custom WordPress websites takes time because we are designing and developing the website as a bespoke solution for your business. We take care to do the planning and lay the foundation so you get the result you are looking for.
When we provide you with a project proposal, we can give you a more accurate idea of the timelines for your website based on the complexity or the functionality and design you require. It’s our style to be very open and transparent with our clients so we will keep you updated at every step along the way as to how your project is progressing and if we can foresee any delays or bumps in the road. Rest assured, your WordPress website is in very good hands.
How can this new website help us achieve our business goals and KPIs?
The WordPress website we build for you will be designed with your goals and KPIs in mind. That’s why we know that it will align with your business and meet your expectations.
Unfortunately, many businesses are tempted by the pull of the low-cost off-the-shelf website options that can be implemented in a matter of weeks. They are cheap and fast but the ROI simply isn’t there. A template website limits how much you can customise the website to suit your goals and direction.
With a custom WordPress website we start with a blank canvas and build your goals into the website as we go. We are focussed on the detail to get every little thing right but we also look at the big picture. It’s not enough to have a beautifully designed website if the design doesn’t factor in the user journey or doesn’t represent your business how you need it for growth.
For our clients, we become an extension of their business. We build an open and transparent relationship so we can design and develop a WordPress website that absolutely meets your needs. We dive deep into your business to understand your goals, your customers and where your business is headed and then we formulate that into a strategic plan for your WordPress website.
When we understand your customers and what problems they need to solve we can shine the light on your products and services as the solution. We build websites for conversion so you get maximum ROI.
Our process goes into the depth it does for a reason and that is because we want to be sure that the work we do for you is meaningful for your business and takes you closer to your goals.

Why should I use WordPress for developing a website?
WordPress is without a doubt the most widely used website platform around the world. However, just because everyone else is using it for their business doesn’t necessarily mean you should be too. Having said that, WordPress is a powerful platform that is ideal for many businesses.
WordPress is an open source platform that is flexible and robust. For those who want to use a simple to install template, they can get their WordPress website up and running in a very short time. For businesses like yours, where a customised website is more important, WordPress can also deliver.
One of the great benefits of WordPress being an open source platform is that there are endless plugins available for WordPress built by developers all around the world. If you need additional functionality, we can also build a custom solution.
In terms of the WordPress CMS, it is incredibly user-friendly and easy to use. Uploading content is an efficient process, as is managing updates and changes to your website.
When you build a website, you want it to be secure and WordPress is certainly a very safe and secure platform. You can add additional plugins to boost your security but it is also important that the code of your website is hack proof. Not all developers will offer the same level of security in their code so this is something you will need to check in the process of deciding which agency to choose.
Another crucial factor for a business website is SEO and WordPress is a highly SEO friendly platform. The search engines love WordPress because of the code and semantic markup that sit behind it that make it easy to analyse and index your content. You can easily adjust the metadata for your website pages to ensure you are optimising the content for the search engines.
WordPress is also flexible to allow you to create different types of websites. While it is synonymous with blog sites, WordPress is a powerful option for eCommerce sites, membership sites and many other types of sites. If you can dream it, there is a good chance that WordPress can do it.
The other large benefit of WordPress is that you can scale your website as your business grows. Whatever website you end up building, it needs to be aligned to your business goals and support those goals. If the website can’t be scaled, you will be back to square one when it comes time to upgrade your website.
Overall, WordPress is a platform that will support most types of businesses and the sky's the limit in terms of what we can do. Get in touch and we can discuss your requirements and help you determine whether a WordPress website is right for your business or if we can help you with an alternative custom website solution.
