Course Description

In this course you will learn to build a professional website from scratch. Anyone can follow this course. However, the ideal student will need to have basic computer knowledge and be comfortable navigating websites. Also, you will have to be willing to interact with others using email and social media. I spent a lot of time and money learning this on my own. I want to spare you of this and give you the short cuts. I will take you through simple steps to purchase a domain and hosting account. These are both very inexpensive and I will show you ways to save money on both. I will also show you how to install word press and to custom design your website. Also, I will show you to professionally add your content and add pictures. I will cover the basics of search engine optimization and tools you can use to improve your seo efforts and track them. Once your site is fully functional you will see my technique to apply to all social media networks to build traffic to your website. Anybody is qualified to take this course and not very much overhead is required. You will receive an action plan to follow for 1 week after the course to ensure your success. Consistent action is what will determine your success. I think you should take this course because you will have a road map on how to share your business, product, or idea.

Instructor Biography

John Waller, Entrepreneur at Heart

Thanks for stopping by. My name is John Waller. I am here to help those looking to build and grow their own website. I started building websites about 2 years ago. I had to teach myself how to build a site from scratch and it was difficult going from resource to resource and paying just to learn. Those costs added up before I even paid for a domain name! I'm looking to provide help to those who are looking like I was.
