Become an Agency Partner
I have amazing relationships with my agency partners. They are a vital part of my business and I strive to create not only amazing websites, but amazing, long-lasting relationships that are mutually beneficial for all parties!
I build Agency Partner websites that are…
What good is a website if a user can’t find what they need. Your website will be well thought-out ensuring your visitors can easily find what they are looking for.
Easy to Edit
You shouldn’t need to contact a developer for every little change on your website. I create easy-to-edit sites using the block editor, making changes simple for you and your team.
My finely-tuned process ensures your site will be lightning fast. From code and image optimization to a focus on using only high-quality plugins, I work extensively to provide the best performance possible for your site.
My focus on quality code and proper coding standards ensures your site will stand the test of time and function for years to come.
Agency Partner Website Development FAQs
I handle agency work and direct client work the same way as both are very important to my business. All inquiries are responded to in a timely manner and projects are scheduled as time permits. I do offer expedited development (rush fees will apply) in extreme circumstances.
Yes, I do. Please contact me and we can discuss.
My development process varies based on the type of project. Check out my development process page for more details on my development process.
I typically only take on full build projects or work on sites I’ve previously built, but I would be happy to take a look to see if I may be able to help. I do my best to keep my agency partners happy, but sometimes working with code I didn’t create won’t work.
My typical development-only project is $5,000-10,000. If we will be working with my design partner to come up with a new design, this will typically add $5,000-$7,000 to the project. Bear in mind, these are ranges that will vary greatly based on the complexity and scope of your project.
Additionally, if you need custom copywriting, in-depth SEO or any other services, that will affect the price as well.
My typical build takes 2-3 weeks followed by 1-2 weeks of QA/testing. More complex project will extend that timeline. This also assumes timely communication.
If we are going through a full design prior to development, this will add 4-6 weeks to the process.
Start time will vary, but it is typically a 4-6 week lead time prior to project kickoff.
I have a custom starter theme I’ve build that is essentially a “blank canvas” to start each project from. This ensures your website is build specifically for your needs and doesn’t include any features you don’t need ensuring peak performance.
I use a number of plugins with nearly every build including:
- Advanced Custom Fields
- Gravity Forms
- WP Migrate DB Pro
- Yoast SEO
- WP Rocket
Some other plugins I use a lot include:
- WP Recipe Maker
For eCommerce sites I build with WooCommerce and Easy Digital Downloads.
I also include my own Core Functionality Plugin where I handle all non-theme functionality like Custom Post Types, Custom Taxonomies and more. That way should you ever need to change themes, you won’t lose that core functionality.
I don’t offer any design services but have a number of design partners I work with on a daily basis. My design partners are experts graphic design specifically for websites and will help guide us through the website design process using best practices.
While I prefer not to white-label, I certainly can do that. This would include removing all references to “Whiteley Designs” and replacing with your company branding.

Agency Partner Testimonials
I’ve worked with Matt for the past four years and he’s our go-to developer for every project we take on. Besides his dashing good looks, His development and communication skills are top-notch, not to mention time management—he keeps to a schedule— which is extremely important in our business. I wouldn’t use anyone else. He’s by far the best I’ve ever worked with. I can’t recommend him highly enough!
Hiring a contracted developer to work on a client project with you comes with some risk and trepidation. From the very first small project I hired Matt for to the larger full WordPress custom theme I hired him for shortly after, he has calmed all of my fears. Working with Matt is a fantastic experience. He works hard to become a trusted partner, offering solutions you hadn’t thought of and being incredibly responsive. With Matt, there are no loose ends and no need for micromanagement. My agency will absolutely have more work for him in the future.
