Description

Familiar with these stopping points in launching or updating your website?

  • "I need a header, still waiting on my graphic designer"
  • "I don't have a logo yet, I'm working on that"
  • "My sales page has no graphics, my website is bland..."

These all seem like graphic designer things that cost $100-1000 each, but let's cut the crap, you need to launch, now... this WordPress for Designers course is about the tactics to get you a working logo, header, and sales page images so you can move beyond that "stuck" point, WITHOUT a graphic designer, and without tons of time invested.

In this WordPress for Designers course we will learn WordPress tips and tricks and how-to instruction in the form of resourceful websites, text and video instruction that will be invaluable as an online entrepreneur.

This course will erase the excuse that you MUST have a graphic designer to move forward.
