Oslo’s WordPress specialists: Dekode

The WordPress community in Norway is not very big yet, but it is growing steadily. I met Magne Ilsaas from the biggest WordPress agency in Norway. Currently Magne’s agency, Dekode, employs 18 people and has an annual revenue of 1.4 million euros (12.5 million NOK).

Dekode specializes in WordPress websites, but also works very closely with a Magento partner (Trollweb) delivering front-ends for large e-commerce websites. Dekode was very open with their numbers and pricing. Dekode’s annual revenue was a bit over 1 million euros (9.5 million NOK) in 2013. In 2014, Dekode’s revenue reached around 1.4 million euros (12.5 million NOK).

Dekode’s typical project price is around 25,000 to 50,000 euros with a typical hourly rate of 150 euros, but please note that the general price level is higher in Norway than in many other northern European countries. For example, a typical price for men’s haircut in Oslo can be between 60 and 70 euros. (See the Big Mac Index for more.)

London’s WordPress specialists: Wholegrain Digital

As an agency they are somewhat technically focused, but don’t do any custom software development for clients. Their yearly revenue number is around £320,000 (€400,000) and their typical projects range from £5,000 to £20,000 (from €6,300 to €27,500).
