WordPress.com Business: Get a professional website without a professional price tag

Are you a small business owner who wants an interactive website with demo videos? A pro blogger who wants to try out a bunch of premium themes before committing? A non-profit building its first website, and in need of a little extra support? Say goodbye to sky-high web development costs and hello to WordPress.com Business.

Everything a growing business needs, at a price a growing business can handle.

Our users already know how easy it is to build great websites on WordPress.com: we’re flexible, powerful, and scale along with you. WordPress.com Business makes it even easier to build a site that supports your growing business long-term by giving you every tool you need up front and for only $299/year:

  • Live support from friendly people, so you can get one-on-one help from a real human when you need it.
  • Unlimited premium themes, so you can find the perfect look for your site without worrying about costs.
  • Unlimited storage, so you can have all the video or audio content you want without dealing with YouTube or Vimeo.

Now, your site can hit the ground running, no upgrades or add-ons needed. WordPress.com Business also includes everything we already offer with our Premium Bundle:

  • A custom web address your customers will remember.
  • Advanced design tools and web fonts so your site reflects your brand.
  • Video and audio uploads, to wow your clients with demos and testimonials.
  • No Ads, so people who visit your site are 100% focused on you.

And of course, the free features that make WordPress.com the choice for so many businesses and bloggers — the security, unlimited bandwidth, one-click integration with social networks, and mobile apps — are part of the deal, too.

A professional website without a professional price tag.

Want to change up the look of your site? Try a premium theme or two (try four or five, and you’ve already made up the cost of WordPress.com Business). Trying to build a brand? Use Custom Design to match colors and fonts. Need a little hand-holding? A Happiness Engineer will walk you through whatever you don’t know.

With premium themes starting at $50/each and our largest storage upgrade coming in at $290/year, WordPress.com Business starts saving you money from the moment you sign up. And anyone who’s ever had a website crisis knows that expert live support is priceless. At $299/year, WordPress.com Business saves you much more in developer, designer, and support costs, making it a great choice for your business and your bottom line.

Unlimited choice from our selection of private themes

Get unlimited choice from our selection of free and premium themes with WordPress.com Business

Take your business and your brand online with a few clicks.

Start with choosing a theme — our favorite part — and then use Custom Design to tweak it to your needs. Upload your logo. Change the colors and fonts. Get your hands dirty by tweaking the CSS. You have unlimited choice from our collection of free and premium themes, which include themes designed for specific users like restaurants, musicians, or magazines as well as elegant, flexible themes suitable for a variety of sites. Try one premium theme, or try them all. All our current premium themes and every premium theme we will ever launch will be available to you for no extra cost, and you can switch between them at will.

If you’re setting up a new online journal, try Mimbo Pro or Further; both include a rich home page and advanced customization options to help organize your publications. Use our Soundcheck theme for your wedding band and upload videos of your gigs, or show off your restaurant’s new seasonal menu with Confit. Setting up an online portfolio? Check out Blocco or Shelf, each with its own unique approach to showcasing your work. None of the above? Highly configurable Oxygen can create a site to support any kind of organization.

Next up, add your own web address: one domain is included with the purchase, so you can extend your brand even further (you can also use an existing domain and point it to your new WordPress.com site). Now you can import content from your other sites, upload all your images and videos — with unlimited storage, you can have all the promos, testimonials, or demonstrations your customers can handle — or start chatting with a Happiness Engineer in real time with any questions.

Happiness Engineers are standing by.

We’re just getting started with live support on WordPress.com, and we will be experimenting with both text chat and voice. For now, our focus is on offering you text chat during US business hours (EST). We’ll be collecting your feedback on how we can improve and expand live support as the service evolves.

WordPress.com Business is available now from the WordPress.com store, for $299 yearly for one site. Already have WordPress.com Premium? Stay tuned for an upgrade path. And as your business grows, so can your WordPress.com site. If you need even more, check out WordPress.com Enterprise, which gives you the best of WordPress.com with VIP features such as 70+ approved plugins and Javascript customization.

Focus on what matters — growing your business.

If you’re starting or growing a small business, you know how important it is to have a great website — and you don’t have money or time to waste. With WordPress.com Business, you get all the tools you need to build a rich, engaging website that supports your goals without having to hire a web developer (or turn yourself into one). We’ll worry about backups and bandwidth; you worry about your business.

    If you could allow the IDXPress Plug in from Diverse Solutions, you would have a “Home Run” here for the Real Estate Industry! =)

    Is there an ecommerce plugin or method?


  7. Deborah Sicignano

    Hi Ran, thanks for the article. When you say “ecommerce is not supported by WordPress.com”, does this mean I cannot accept payment for services or products for my business via a business website I might want to create through you? Please clarify as this will help me determine if WP.com is the way to go for my business.

    What is the maximum size photos I can feature. Would someone be able to download my full resolution photo? Any options for those who want to sell photos?

      Hi Chuck,

      The maximum size is limited by the theme you pick – a theme that shows images only 200 pixels wide will only display at 200 px wide. You should be able to upload images as large as you wish. If you made these available to your viewers, they would be able to download the entire image. You are able to sell your own photos from your WordPress.com site!

    Reblogged this on WPcomMaven and commented:
    The Business Bundle I wrote about earlier has now officially launched! Excellent value-for-money for non-profits, businesses and professionals looking to launch their online presence. The special support tier makes this especially worthwhile.
