What do you include in your WordPress Setup Packages?
You can read about my WordPress setup packages here. Based on your inquiry and the information you provide I will create a custom tailored package just for you.
My packages are turnkey WordPress sites that are constructed from the input you provide. Packages are based on what clients have asked for most combined with what I know are the features you need to compete based on your specific needs and stated goals.
I outline in detail what features, functionality and support are included. Adding of content and products is easily accomplished by you through the WordPress Dashboard without having to know any code or have any programming skills.
Each new WordPress site package includes my exclusive WordPress 101 eBook that I customize based on your new site and plugin setup so that you can hit the ground running. This eBook will also includes other important topics that I will coach and guide you on so you are aware of all the variables necessary to your long-term success.
The addition of all your content or products is at additional charge if you prefer to have me do that for you.
Additional charges will also be incurred by requesting features, functionality or customizations beyond that which is detailed in each package offering.
Charges are not incurred without your approval in advance on integration/implementation.
How much will my project cost?
That depends on what features and functionality you want, combined with any additional work you may commission. Rarely do clients incur additional charges beyond that of their site package and if they do, they approve those charges in advance before they are incurred. I treat your wallet as if it were my own!
What my WordPress Setup packages do not include is the migration of your current non-WordPress content as that is a simple task you can handle yourself by copy-n-pasting from your old site into your new WordPress site once everything is set up for you. This methodology caters to site owners who are on a budget and want to be involved. WordPress’ popularity is due to being user-friendly which allows you to enter your information without having to know any code.
Do you just offer WordPress help and support?
You bet! My WordPress Girl Friday “WordPress Help When You Need It” Support system was setup specifically to help folks on a case by case basis with each task as they arise. My WPGF service is an e-mail only support ticket based help service.

Site reviews are not offered en gratis.

How much of a deposit will be required?
New site projects require a $500 new site deposit to reserve a spot in my production schedule and begin the brainstorming process.
Being new project opportunities are limited, your deposit or retainer ensures your placement on my active client list. By getting your deposit in place, your account is then in queue to receive priority status.
Being I offer superior personalized support to each of my clients, it is critical for time-management purposes and customer service levels that I be able to identify those potential clients who have committed to their project as well as our partnership.

How do we begin working on my Web site project?
After reviewing this page in its entirety contact me with your project details.
How long does it take for my project to launch?
From my side, your project will be ready within 30 days! Delays will only be due to you not providing the information I need to develop your project per your guidance.
IMPORTANT: Once you send your project deposit, your project’s package balance will be due once my job is completed or 30 days from the date of your deposit submission — whichever occurs first.
Can you help me learn how to set up, use and modify WordPress and it’s features?
Sure can – that’s what I specialize in! With my WordPress Girl Friday Support site, you too can have WordPress help as needed! I also now work with a diverse group of Web developers who put me on retainer for WordPress help and troubleshooting knowing I am only a phone call or e-mail away when they need help.
Can you give examples of other WordPress sites you’ve worked on?
I’ve been a successful online consultant for over 19 years, concentrating exclusively on WordPress since it was born for over 9 years — so it is difficult to list all the sites I’ve worked on.
First and foremost, this very site is all WordPress for over 9 years now — so you can get a comprehensive idea of what can be done and how I am using the WordPress platform and a Premium WordPress theme for my business. And of course my WordPress Girl Friday WordPress Support site is all WordPress using customized plugins and a Premium Child Theme also on the StudioPress Genesis Framework.
Here are a couple of my pet projects on WordPress:
- WPVets.org: Free WordPress Hep for U.S. Military Veterans
I am also pleased to offer you a sampling of some of my favorite projects I am proud to have partnered with site owners on:
- Northern Illinois Conservation Club
What are all the Muse and Coach references about?
I am concerned about your success and want to empower you with the knowledge, skills and understanding you will need to succeed. (Sometimes whether you like it or not!) This goes above and beyond the technical aspects of putting your site together.
- A person who gives private instruction
- To give instruction or advice.
Those smarties who choose to work with me literally have my 19 years of online experience at their disposal. Many comment shortly after we begin working together on how the “muse” tag fits my style and personality in guiding them to feel confident and comfortable with technology.
I’ll coach you on the issues and specific variables you probably don’t even know you have to consider! You’ll also have the added benefit of having your own personal “WordPress Coach” on call on the necessary skill building and knowledge acquisition that separates the winners from the wannabes online.
I’ve “been there; done that” with most things online and that experience is invaluable in being able to guide you properly right out of the gate. Not only does that save you time; it saves you money!
- A guiding spirit.
- A source of inspiration.
When you get frustrated, or are unclear about how to proceed, as your WordPress Muse, I am only a phone call or e-mail away for you to get the inspiration, information and encouragement you need to be as successful as you want to be.
Where can I get an idea of what I can expect?
Simply review my site! One thing I do not do is hide information from you, sugar-coat issues or cater to all the online hype you’ll find elsewhere. Online business is not for the weak of heart. If you are up to the challenge that technology demands of each of us; I’m here for you. Taking the time to check my site is time well spent!
After reviewing the information above, what if I still have questions?
I thank you for taking the time to review this important information! Please include your questions when you send your project’s details. I’m here to help!
