*** Update February 10 2016:

When you buy this course you get the Divi theme for free within this course. Yes that is right. For free! That theme will cost you normally $69. You get support trough this course if you have any issues with the theme.


This step-by-step course will teach you how to design your eCommerce store with WordPress and WooCommerce. When you are finished with the course you will know how to create a beautiful design and configuration for your store.

in this new and improved course (updated February 10th 2016!) there are now two themes covered in this course. Divi by Elegant themes and Flatsome.

Over 4 hours of video in which you will learn everything you need to know to get you started with designing your Online store. I will tot only teach how to install a theme but also what to do and what not to do. But there is more. If you want, I create a lecture specially for you! Yes, that is right, you can send me a message and I will record as many lectures needed to help you. That request can be for a specific theme, plugin or function in WordPress or WooCommerce. There are so many plugins and extension available for WordPress and WooCommerce it is very difficult for me to please all of you right from the start. So do not hesitate to contact me, i will make sure I deliver and i will deliver within 30 days, so if you are not pleased with the content, you can ask for a 100% refund, no questions asked.

Starting an eCommerce business has been made very very easy with WordPress and WooCommerce. A few years ago everything i did was with Magento and custom build systems. WooCommerce was way to immature for our business. But now it is a fully functional and 100% professional system that has everything that you need.

In this course we will focus on the look and feel of your online store. I take one approach with one theme that will show you the possibilities of a theme and WordPress. Please note that the possibilities are endless!

A few examples:

  • Installing and configuring a Theme;
  • Setting up the Home page;
  • Setting up Shop pages (like the product page);
  • Creating other pages like the contact page.

After this course the only thing you need to do is implement everything you learned, create a beautiful store AND start selling those products.

Who is the target audience?
  • Entrepreneurs
  • WordPress starters
  • WooCommerce starters
  • You should NOT take this course when you want to build your own theme. This course uses a Very cost effective pre-build theme.

WordPress Expert, eCommerce professional & Entrepreneur

I'm Patrick Gerrits, 31 years old and father of a daughter and son. I'm a e-commerce entrepreneur, and IT Architect, but most of all I'm a idea machine. I always looking for new opportunities and I see possibilities instead off problems. I believe that you can sell everything online if you just know how to do it.

I have been an entrepreneur for life. Started when is was sixteen trying to sell t-shirts of computer games to my friends. When I was 22 i started my first 'real' web shop. Before that i was just trying out concepts and products to sell. When the shop did not sell anything for 1 week, I got bored and started a new business (Now i know better).
The real one was a shop selling computer games and game hardware. It was a huge success creating over 1 million of sales in the first year and being awarded best web shop in the Netherlands two years in a row. The growth was enormous but so was the learning curve, we made mistakes during that rapid growth that eventually got us. The shop went bankrupt after 3 years with a cash flow problem.

I'm proud of that experience during the last 6 months, when the company was going bankrupt, I learned the most. I'm putting all of the things I learned in my new businesses. Trying out new concepts, different sales models or even different shop systems.

Now I help starting entrepreneurs with their e-commerce business. Sometimes i help started business as well. I try to be the companion for the entrepreneur, helping them from A to Z. But also making sure they don't make the same mistakes I made in the past.

Here on Udemy I'm here to teach you everything I know about e-commerce and help you make the next step and maybe the best step you make in your whole life!
