Cost to Make a Location-Based Site with WordPress – Explorable

by Elaine on April 4, 2013

Startup Cost to make a location-based site with Wordpress and Wordpress Theme – Explorable is less than $100.  I’ve listed the cost breakdown below.  Wordpress is the best and easiest way to get your website started.  Explorable is a premium Wordpress Theme that uses a map as the front page of your site.  You create posts and listings and they are plotted onto the map.  When the locations and listings are plotted to the map, users can see pictures you took, ratings and reviews you gave each location and read more about the attraction if they are interested.  This makes Explorable an excellent way to create a travel blog, travel website, geo theme, local business directories, travel guides, site like Yelp and more.

But if you factor in the free advertising credits you get from Fatcow.com:

  • Startup Cost = Total Cost + Advertising Credits = -$50
