Course Description

Do you want an attractive website that could potentially be found on page #1 of Google?

Are you curious to know the exact SEO tips and tricks to make that happen?

Do you want to avoid paying a professional an exorbitant fee to do that for you?

If so, this is the course for you.

This course was designed to teach anyone how to use Wordpress to build an incredibly beautiful, functional website. Unlike the other courses that begin with a blank slate and build a site, I'll be taking more of a retrospective approach; taking you from finished product backwards. This style of learning is ideal for the visual learner that likes to see, then do.

If you're like me and have a "can do" attitude, I will show you how to create a website that not only looks ultra-professional, but also ranks well in Google. I'll take you on a behind-the-scenes look at my website and show you the proven SEO methods I used to get there.

Here are some of the things you'll learn from this course:

  1. You will learn how to choose a stunning domain name.
  2. How to setup a hosting account.
  3. You will learn how to install Wordpress on your website.
  4. Choosing a theme that rocks!
  5. Step-by-step instructions to create pages and posts.
  6. How to use sliders and make your site visually amazing.
  7. What are plugins and which ones I recommend.
  8. How to integrate social media into your site.
  9. Behind the scenes look at my favorite SEO plugin and the settings I use.
  10. How to setup your e-mail
  11. Many, many more tips and tricks to add value.

    More benefits of this course:

    • No Coding
    • No Prior Experience Required
    • No knowledge of Wordpress, hosting, or FTP is necessary.
What are the requirements?
  • Internet connection
  • Patience and Time
  • The Avada Theme
Who would benefit from the course?

If you're a small business owner, entrepreneur, or simply someone that's interested in having a killer website, you'll absolutely love this course. If on the other hand you have advanced knowledge of Wordpress and its inner workings, perhaps not so much.

The Bottom Line:

Listen, I've been in your shoes. Intimidated. Overwhelmed. Clueless as to how to proceed. I can help you through this and you'll be glad you did. No, this isn't a course to make a website in one hour or even two. If you want a site that looks like you forked over $15k for, then you have to put in the time. If you've got that, you can do this!

What are the requirements?

  • I'll be using the Avada Theme, but don't download it yet!

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Create a brilliant website
  • Implement SEO strategies that work

Who is the target audience?

  • This course is meant for anyone that wants a visually stunning, yet functional website and don't want to pay $15k for a professional to do it for them.

What you get with this course?

Not for you? No problem.

Instructor Biography

Ben Hill, Entrepreneur, Web Designer, Content Creator, Doctor

By profession, I'm primarily a doctor, but for as long as I can remember, building computers, web design, and video production have always been a close second. Collectively, I love sharing my knowledge and experiences with others to help simplify or improve their lives.

I'm a true entrepreneur. I love the challenge of figuring things out on my own and then doing it better than anyone else around. Not because I have something to prove, but because I love to learn.

The greatest satisfaction I get in life is helping others. I've spent years working with Wordpress and Photoshop, and I would love the opportunity to show you how to make some really incredible material.
