Have you tried to create a website before but ended up with a mess? Have you wasted precious time and energy trying to figure out how to create your own professional looking website?
I have been close to pulling my hair out! What is a domain and hosting anyway?! And how on earth do I use WordPress to make my site?
I wasted valuable time and money figuring out the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, which was better for my website?! I tried some of the all in one platforms like Wix and Squarespace but I could not get the site to look how I wanted, plus it was starting to get costly.
It was only by pure stubbornness and lots of Youtube videos that I got to where I am today.
I know what its like to start a new business. There are so many things to think about. Marketing, messaging, branding, advertising, social media! As a business owner we feel like we have to know and do it all.
Researching the problem can become overwhelming because there are so many options available. It can take months just to figure out something simple.
Creating your very own WordPress website should not be that hard. You should be able to spend your time on the important stuff which is why I created.....
This is an online course that will take you through the process of creating a professional 3 page WordPress website you can be proud of.

Watch me create a new website from scratch and simply do what I do.

Being found on google is essential for any business. This course will include how to ensure your website is found online and give you advice as to how you can develop this further in the future.
I am not selling software of a platform for you to use. Instead I am showing you how you can create your very own self hosted WordPress site. This way you own all the content and are in complete control of your site.
Let your visitor know how many modules there are and what each one is about.
To make your site professional you must consider what colors you want to use. You may have your own brand colors already but if not I will walk you through this process. We will use free tools to decide on what colors fit your business best. I will show you how to create a logo for a low cost (under $20)
Before you create your site you need to know what you are going to say. In this module we will explore who your clients are, what problems they have and the solution you provide. This will give us most of the text that will go on your website.
By the end of this module you will have decided upon and purchased your domain. For example www.mysite.com, this is what people will type into their browser to find your site. Every website needs hosting and I will show you the company I recommend and walk you through the entire process. The hosting company I recommend is Siteground and you can set up your hosting for less than $3 per month.
This is the fun part. I will walk you through exactly how to create a navigation menu, footer, legal pages and all the exciting content that your customers will love. I will show you how to create a home page, contact page and services page and how to link them all together. I recommend using a plugin called Thrive Architect to create your website pages and the cost for this is $67
In this module I will walk you through the most important aspects of being found on Google. This will include what plugins to use and how to structure each page of your website for best results.
A website is a living breathing thing. It needs to be maintained in order for it to work properly and be found in online searches. I will show you how to find essential plugins that will help with this plus ways you can start generating traffic to your new website.
You will have access to the course as long as it exists PLUS all future updates.
WordPress is always being updated as are the plugins required to make your site run. The course will be updated to ensure that you will always have the most relevant information available.
I am here to make this process as easy as possible. You can contact me via email 24/7 and I will do my best to help you with any problems you have.
Siteground, the hosting company I recommend, is well known for having exceptional 24 hour support and can help you with most tech set up or WordPress problems.
This is where you can record your progress throughout the course. There is space to record your brand color codes, passwords and brand messaging.
Everything within easy reach for future reference.

Congratulations on being a small business owner and taking on the mammoth task of building your own website.
I am proud to have created something that can help you avoid all the wasted hours, and hair pulling late at night. This course is an accumulation of all of my learning in a format that does not aim to teach you everything there is. Go to Udemy if that is what you need. Instead you will find a step by step approach anyone could follow.
Good luck in your website building journey. Have fun and be proud of your achievement.
