WordPress is open-source code that powers 25% of all websites on the internet (including this one). It requires a hosting company to host the files but is not technology owned by any one specific company. Some eCommerce options require a WordPress website to run best, including Commerce7.
Squarespace is a third party company that has a proprietary software solution to build websites. They are both the website creation platform as well as the host of the files, for which you pay a monthly fee. Squarespace has its own set of ecommerce solutions, including their in-house Squarespace Commerce. You can view Vinbound’s Squarespace packages here.
From a development standpoint, it simply takes more time to create WordPress websites. However, this extra development time means a more customizable interface than SquareSpace. WordPress can handle much larger websites (great for established wineries or AVAs) and comes equipped with powerful plugins to boost search engine rankings.
WordPress websites take an average 4-8 weeks to build after receiving your signed contract, deposit (50% of quoted total), and content. Smaller sites will be ready sooner and larger sites will be on the later end of the spectrum. Your ability to promptly provide content and input on each round will vastly speed up the process.
WordPress websites do require an ongoing Hosting and Tech Support plan from Vinbound Marketing to ensure site security, uptime and ongoing functionality. These plans range in price from $50 – $250 per month.
We will provide a checklist at the beginning of the process so you know what to provide. You will be an active participant in the design process by providing images, text, bottle shots, videos, thoughts on website structure, etc. Access to your existing domain, server, and analytics programs will be requested.
Yes! We have built the websites for many AVAs and DMOs, including Alexander Valley Winegrowers, Eola-Amity Hills, McMinnville AVA, Visit Carlton and more. We also can build websites for wine importers, distributors, and other organizations needing advanced website functionality.
