Description

Learn how to build a complete WordPress website for your business or brand in a weekend even if you're not super technical.

You get access to over 2 hours of video training where you learn how to build a WordPress website from scratch with no previous experience.

You should be able to complete this course over a couple of days. You can take longer if you like, but the course is designed to help you build your first WordPress website in only 2 days.

The course starts with learning all the things you need to plan out and get in place before you build your website. Then it moves into setting up your domain name, hosting account, and then installing WordPress. The bulk of the training comes after that and shows you how to build out your site, add different types of content, and adjust the look of the site with no actual coding required.

This course will empower you to create your own website without having to hire someone else to do it. It also lays the foundation for you to start your own freelance web design business if that's what you want to do.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone who wants a WordPress powered website
  • Business Owners
  • Personal Brands
  • Aspiring Bloggers
  • People who need to get more leads and sales for their product or service
