Level: Champion

You need a website that works as hard as you do to create content that converts.

That’s why we’ve dedicated our careers to building pixel-perfect custom themes for food bloggers. Creator Champion is our ultimate tier of theme customizations in 2024.

Are YOU a Champion blogger?

Your site already has lots of customizations that you’d like transferred to custom blocks moving forward. You’d also like to consider additional functionality that will benefit your business long-term.

Pixel-perfect is the only option. You want everything to look and feel as authentic as your brand. You’re willing to sit down at the drawing table to test your new site, curate content, and tweak everything as many times as it takes to make your site’s launch a massive success for both you and your audience.

Customizations You’ll Love

(and your readers will too)

A footer with all those SEO links in a place where users will see them when they need them (when they’re so engaged they reach the bottom of the post). Plus a relevant CTA at the same time!

Lots of easy-to-use row blocks for specific posts, recent posts, or even manual content.

A big, visual grid for catching the eye of users that scroll a little too fast past the good goods.

Search bars everywhere. Never again shall a reader say they cannot find a recipe! (Just kidding.)

Authority-boosting review block. Use in posts, for products, anywhere we want cause it’s a Block theme!

A mobile header without a cumbersome tap-to-open menu that nobody but you uses.

Fun text-only blocks so we don’t overload readers with our mad photography skills, and instead remind them we’re people too.

Benefits of our Champion Customizations

  • You get a custom theme from the team at Once Coupled with a pixel-perfect approach in mind.
  • Your entire website is built on blocks. Want to revamp your homepage for a season or holiday on the fly? No problem! Your new site is built using core WordPress blocks to shift and change as many ways as you’d like. Including those shiny, new custom blocks that are built just for your brand.
  • You require theme SEO, UX, and ad optimizations while maintaining total control over creating content.

Compare Pricing

  • Champion customizations start at $40k for development, customizations & implementation. These projects follow our most intense custom theme development process using a fine-toothed comb and pixel-perfect approach from beginning to end. There are multiple phases of both internal AND client reviews for Champion clients. We schedule your specifically curated launch date for Champion themes based on mutually agreed-upon goals months in advance.
  • Charming customizations start at $18k for development, customizations & implementation. You’ll receive development with greater attention to detail, a slightly longer timeline, and an additional client review process to ensure your site is pixel-perfect before your launch date!
  • Confident customizations start at $7k for development, customizations & implementation. You’ll receive a shorter development timeline, faster turnaround, and our fully optimized theme built for bloggers at our next available launch date!

Getting Started

  • We require a $4k deposit in order to reserve your development start date.
  • We have limited availability, as we value maintaining our small but mighty team of experienced developers who are well-versed in the blogging niche.
  • To discuss development, we’ll schedule a meeting to determine that your site’s specific functionality (and goals) are a good fit for your chosen tier after you’ve reviewed our proposal.

Theme Support

  • During the development process and in the weeks leading up to launch, we walk you through your new theme to ensure that you understand how to use it moving forward.
    • It’s built with Gutenberg blocks throughout, so if you’re familiar with blocks this will be really straightforward.
  • We use a custom child theme for each customization tier.
    • You can check out our knowledgebase, which shares information about how to edit and optimize each aspect of Creator Theme if you have questions outside of our office hours.
  • Want a more hands-on approach? We’ve maintained a retainer program for Once Coupled custom theme clients for nearly a decade, and it’s still going strong. When you invest in theme customizations with our team, we’re only an email (or Marker.io task) away.
