A custom theme has many features compared to a
free theme. A custom theme is mainly used for the
business owner who needs a specific type of
features. A custom WordPress theme has a unique
design, layout and set of features.
There are many types of themes available in

A custom theme is not limited to pre-existing
template or layout. You have full access to
customize your website and get any specific
functionality built within your theme.

the individual client, the cost of the custom
theme depends on the project how client needs to
build their website.

  • Here are the facts that cost your WordPress
    theme-
  • Individual Freelancer vs Agency
  • You need to hire someone who can design
    (designer) and code your theme (developer).
  • You can find an individual who can do both
    designs and develop your site but there is very
    less individual whos excellent at both design
    and code.
  • You will also get one-stop shop which has
    full-service agency means they are having both
    designers and developers in their team. This is
    also the reason, agencies can be more expensive.
  • Or you can hire an individual freelance designer
    and developer and manage the project yourself.
    This will save your money compared to your
    agencies.

  • Experience and Expertise
  • If you want to create your custom WordPress
    theme, you will need an expert and experience who
    is a good designer, development and creative, so
    the project cost varies upon their expertise,
    experience in the field and creative.
  • Reputed WordPress development agencies may be
    expensive more than an individual developer or
    freelancer. Sometimes, a well-known WordPress
    developer can more than an agency.

8
  • Features, Functionality, and Expectations
  • If you want to add more features and
    functionality to your custom theme then it will
    also increase the development time and cost.
    Normally, clients have higher expectations than
    their budget allows.
  • This high-quality work with custom features takes
    more time and due to that cost increases.
  • Change orders and Revisions
  • In the middle of the process, if you change the
    scope of your custom WordPress then this can
    increase your cost. Minor changes can be done but
    often agencies and freelancers charge if
    change-order is major.

  • Hosting, Maintenance, Support
  • In a custom WordPress theme, you will not get
    WordPress hosting, website maintenance or any
    support after delivery of the project.
  • But some freelancers and agencies offer these
    services at an extra charge.

HOW TO AVOID OVERPAYING FOR A CUSTOM WORDPRESS

overpaying for a custom WordPress theme. Have a
Clear Scope of the Project When you start a new
like if you are building a house, you make a list
that you want such as 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms,
living room, etc.

  • So now, you need to make a similar list of
    website and list all the things you want your
    website to be done.
  • Home page with a slider and services list.
  • Gallery area to view your work.
  • Contact page with form and google map with
    ability to find directions.
  • Blog section with social media share buttons.
  • Have a full list of your project which will help
    you from overpaying of your custom WordPress
    theme and makes easier for someone to give an
    accurate quote for your theme. It helps
    change-order fees or limit revisions.

GO FOR LIVE WEBSITE EXAMPLES FOR INSPIRATION WHEN
POSSIBLE Going with the live website will help
you to know how you want your website to be
designed. Have a list of website which you like
and list out what you like each of them. This
also gives the designer a clear idea what you
need in your custom theme thus reduces the
revisions and overall cost.
16
USE PREMIUM PLUGINS VS CUSTOM BUILT
FUNCTIONALITY Reputed WordPress professionals
will always suggest you for WordPress plugin vs
build it out from scratch because its more
efficient and saves cost. However, we always
recommend you first do your research about that.
Some developer may have other suggestion but its
more important that you understand why they are
choosing one plugin over another.
17
CUSTOMIZE PREMIUM THEMES VS BUILD FROM
SCRATCH One of the cheapest way which can reduce
your cost that if find an existing theme that has
90 of what you want. It significantly reduces
overall cost. But this cheats the custom theme
concept. Professional website assemblers will use
existing WordPress plugins with a drag drop
page builder to build your custom theme at much
affordable price.
