Course Description

Hey there! Do you want to learn the easiest way to build powerful and world class websites? Do you want to make money as a CMS web designer? Do you want to master more CMS web design platforms for one price? Then this is the course for you!

Content Management System (CMS) is a software that allows you to design beautiful websites WITHOUT CODING as the design process is done in the browser (so don’t worry if you don’t like code, I don’t like it too). Programming knowledge IS NOT A PRE-REQUISITE for this course!

CMS websites are also easy to manage, you simply teach your clients how to login, make a few clicks and they can update/manage any area of the website! And the good part is…they don’t have to know even one word of coding! That will give them a reason to pay you more! so CMS is definitely the way to go!

This course is made up of 8 sections, covering 7 Content Management System (CMS) platforms namely; Joomla, WordPress, Concrete5, ImpressPages CMS, Clipper CMS, CMSimple and gpEasy CMS. All from scratch, in one course and for one price! This is the one stop CMS course.

You will learn how to install Xampp as a local-host server for your projects, so you don’t need to pay extra money for hosting fees just to create CMS websites. You will also learn how to download the CMS packages and install them on your local-host (same process for live-host), setup the databases that they need and get them up and running!

All the lectures are delivered in a ‘made simple’ step by step practical demonstration, which makes it easy for you to grasp the concepts. If you have never designed a website in your life or seeking more knowledge on CMS software then you are at the right place! You are going to LEARN BY DOING meaning we will design a total of 7 websites in this course, one for each CMS platform and you will see how its done step by step!

So, what are we waiting for? Let’s get started!

What are the requirements?

  • Computer/laptop
  • Basic Computer literacy (click, copy, paste)
  • Internet Connection
  • Average of 45 minutes per CMS

What am I going to get from this course?

Instructor Biography

Ronald T Chirongo, CMS web developer

Ronald T Chirongo is a CMS web designer and developer for 5 years. He began learning web design for one reason…that was to make money charging for websites, which immediately grew from being a simple ambition into a passion and a real business path.

Being a person who never liked complicated coding, he shifted his concentration to CMS web design which was and still is the best way to design powerful websites. He believes that the path to a beautiful website is inspiration and knowledge of which coding is not a must.

Having acquired much knowledge in the CMS field and being involved in a number of projects associated with big and established companies, he started a weekend school that was focused only on CMS web design which saw the birth of great web designers, some of them learning from scratch and end up running their own web design businesses.

Here, he will give you the skills necessary to build your CMS websites and even make money out of it!
