Description

Every business needs its online presence.

You can use social networks, but a good old domain name with a website is still a very popular way of presenting your products to the potential customers.

Your website gives you the opportunity to express yourself. Unlike social networks accounts, you have a total freedom and control regarding the looks and features of your own website.

These days a lot of businesses focuses on creating static landing pages. It’s a very practical way of thinking:

  • static pages are generally more secure and faster than their dynamic counterparts
  • they don’t have any moving elements, namely scripting languages and databases
  • it's almost impossible to hack them by injecting some malicious code 

Online services are getting better and cheaper very fast.

If you know where to look, you can save a lot of money using free services to create a static website.

In this course, I will show you how to create your own website using free tools, resources and services available online.

It’s not about some cheap web hosting with a lot of downtimes.

No, this is about well-known critically acclaimed services backed by financially strong and successful companies.

I will show you how to create your own website using:

  • FREE resources to launch your website in no time
  • FREE tools to edit your website easily and quickly
  • FREE hosting where you can have your site forever with your OWN DOMAIN!
  • FREE certification of your site giving you SSL and HTTPS access FOREVER
Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for anyone who wants to set up their own website with own domain name and use it for FREE

Hi, my name is Jan. I am Evernote Certified Consultant and the founder of THE SYSTEM2. I run online consulting business at ZAVREL CONSULTING where I explain my methodology for a life of happiness and fulfillment which I call THE FULL CIRCLE

I started my IT career as a Pascal programming language student in 1994. Later I discovered the potential of the web and co-founded WEBXP company, where I created websites and web applications for local businesses. 

In 2000, I started working for a German-based company Caatoosee, where I was the part of a team creating the top of the line web shop for than famous Breuninger Mode & Beauty online kaufen.At that time I also started my very own LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) project and designed, developed and published one of the first so-called discussion servers, that were very popular in my country years before the Facebook became the worldwide success. After 16 years, I am working on its comeback!

In 2008, when iPhone SDK was introduced, I moved to mobile apps world and soon published my first verb dictionary for iPhone which you can still find on the App Store. 

In 2015, I founded BOHEMIAPPS which evolved from simple iPhone app project to creativity platform focused on iOS and web development. 

In 2016, I decided to push my mission even further with SMART PROFIT SCHOOL. I believe that everyone can teach and SMART PROFIT SCHOOL is about helping newcomers start their own online teaching career. I also published my first book in 2016, THE DIGITAL INSTRUCTOR

In 2017 I focused primarily on productivity, became Evernote Certified Consultant, and published my second book, THE SYSTEM2.
