WordPress Migration

Is your website hosted on Squarespace, Wix, Showit, ProPhoto, or Pixieset, but you want to start using WordPress with the Kadence theme? Migrations can be complicated, so let me help!

The total price of migration will depend on your specific site, the number of posts, pages, and images to be transferred, your current design, and more. The prices listed here are estimates, but your migration could be more or less.

I am not taking on new bookings for WordPress migrations at this time. If you would like to be added to my waitlist for when I open up bookings again this fall, please contact me.

Learn more about purchasing Kadence here. With a Kadence membership, you also get premium support from their team.

If you do not have a hosting account yet (i.e. if your website is hosted on Squarespace), I’ll help you choose the best option for your website as part of the migration.

  1. Contact me to share your current website link, platform, theme, and host, and I’ll create a quote for your website migration.
  2. Purchase your migration service through the quote you’ll receive via email.
  3. Complete the migration questionnaire you’ll receive via email after your purchase.
  4. Receive an email from Larsen Design Co. with an estimated completion date for your migration.
  5. Sit back, relax, and wait for your migration to finish without lifting a finger! 🎉

You will receive an estimated completion date at the time of your purchase, but most migrations are completed within two weeks. I only take on one migration at a time to make sure I can keep this turnaround as fast as possible.

What’s included?

Not all of this will be necessary for each migration, as it depends on your current platform, but these are services that can be included.

  • Setting up a new hosting account
  • Transferring a domain to Google Domains (i.e. if your domain is currently with Squarespace and you’d like to move it away)
  • Installing a new WordPress application
  • Configuring WordPress settings
  • Installing the Kadence theme on WordPress
  • Installing and configuring all required plugins
  • Migrating all content from your existing website
  • Configuring the Kadence theme to match your current website design or configuring a Larsen Design Co. child theme to match your branding (theme purchased separately)
  • Configuring redirects for optimal link structure
  • Optimizing website for site speed
  • Making DNS changes to launch your new WordPress site when ready

What’s not included?

This also depends on the platform you are migrating from, but these services are generally not included in a migration.

  • Logo and favicon design, or any other custom design elements like background patterns, floral overlays, etc.
  • SEO optimization of blog posts and images
  • Installing and configuring plugins that are not required for proper theme operation
  • Migrating content from multiple website onto one site

100% identical design to your current website cannot be guaranteed. Some platforms like Showit and ProPhoto use animations, auto-play sliders, and other design elements that can have a negative impact on page speed. If you are moving to the Kadence theme, you should be open to considering alternative design elements that are better optimized for speed, as a quick loading time is the biggest selling point of Kadence.
