You know that you need a website for your small business, but maybe you are just starting out and can't afford to hire a web designer. You may have tried to build your own website before, just to get frustrated and quit.
I know it can be overwhelming. That's why my goal with this course is to show you the easiest and quickest way to make a professional website for your business. I go through everything you need to know, step by step, without having you stress about any extras that aren't important to you. You are a business owner, not a website designer, and you just have to get the job done. You can finally get it done this weekend!
There has never been a better time, and its never been easier. Back when I started making websites (over 20 years ago!) you had to use HTML code to build everything. Now, thanks to the WordPress content management system, you can build an entire website without ever doing any programming or writing any code.
No coding or programming
No prior experience with WordPress needed
WordPress is free, open-source software that you can use to build your website. It is used by over 30% of websites on the internet (that's about 75 million websites!) Because its so popular, and there is so much developer support, you have a lot of options for pre-made designs and extra features you can add on.
I have been working with WordPress for 10 years (and websites in general for 20!), so I have a lot of experience knowing best practices and easiest ways to get what you need done. I've taught lots of in-person WordPress classes, and I'm excited to be able to reach more people with this online course. I'm looking forward to being able to help you reach your goals, and am available if you have any questions.
This course could be a good fit for websites for the following types of businesses:

And much more!
This course is up to date for 2021, and is broken up into four days:
On Friday we will talk about the basics of web design. Here I'll go over everything you need to know to get your website done, without bothering you with anything extra. I'll teach you how to buy your domain name, hosting, and SSL certificate, and then set it all up. I also included a cheat sheet of common web design terms to make sure you don't get lost.
On Saturday we will create the content for your new website. This will be the text, photos, video and other parts that will make up your new site. I'll go over what pages should be on your site, and what should go on those pages. I'll also introduce you to the WordPress dashboard, change some basic settings, and install plugins so you are ready to build.
On Sunday we will design and build your actual website. First we will pick a design theme, install a page builder, and customize it to create a professional design that is perfect for your industry and business. I'll also teach you about blogging and widgets, and show you how to link to your social media profiles. We will make sure your website looks good on all mobile devices, and set up tracking so we can see who is visiting your new site.
On Monday I'll show you some quick and easy marketing techniques to show off your brand new website to the world!
By the end of this course you will have a fully functional professional website live and ready to share for your new business. You also have knowledge of basic marketing techniques to help promote your website and a collection of resources to take next steps.
If you are a business owner that is looking for a cost-effective way to finally get a website up for your small business, here is your chance. Remember there is a money back guarantee, so there's no reason not to start today!
