Course Description


Are you unhappy with the website that your web designer gave you?

Or are you tired of paying someone else to maintain your website when you could be better off doing it yourself?

In the online world, your website IS the shopfront of your business. The whole purpose behind a website is to help you to sell more of your products and services.

But for all the money you spent to hire a web design company, all you get at the end of the day is a website that looks good but does nothing more for you and your business.

And there is nothing more you can do about it. Having zero control over your business site is almost like leaving the keys of your shop to someone else!

Many business owners have their fair share of nightmares like these, but it shouldn't have to be this way for you.

Because you're here, all this will change.


"Excellent course. Concise lectures but comprehensive content. KC over delivers!

I was very impressed with this course. The instructions are clear and concise. KC shows you how to do each lecture topic in simple to follow steps and, unlike some tutors, he does not waste your time by waffling. Well planned and presented and thoroughly recommended!" – Rita Smith


Web designers are not the only ones who can create a decent business website. The reality is, creating a website is not as tough as it seems!

This course will show you that you are capable of creating a professional business website all by yourself – just like many other students have – after you learn the skills from this step-by-step course.

Imagine having a website that feels exactly the way you want it and tells your story and vision to your customers in a unique voice of your own, because no one knows your business as well as you do…

Your visitors can have a pleasant experience surfing around your website because you learnt how to cleverly organize your content in your website, making it so easy for your visitors to find the key information they are looking for!

And most importantly, the convenience of having the full control to manage your business website the way you want it.

You will learn exactly how to make this a reality for you and your business after taking this course.

Whether it is changing the content of your site, adding more images, or updating your contact information, you'll know how to do these easily – anytime you want.

No more frustrating delays and waiting for unresponsive web designers because you have the skills to do it by yourself.

Even if you are new to WordPress, you will know exactly how to get a fully functioning business website up and running from scratch by the end of this course!



I will regularly update this course with fresh content to bring you the most up-to-date knowledge and information.

Instructor Biography

KC Tan, Online Business Coach, Small Business Owner

In 2008, KC founded his first business, developing professional websites for business owners and helping them to market their websites online through search engines. Today, KC gets to do what he enjoys most, which is training – bringing his years of experiences and expertise to teach business owners and individuals on how to create their own websites and marketing them online.

Over the years, KC found that most people actually do not have much difficulty learning a new tool (say using WordPress to create a website). The real problem was that people often find themselves stuck or see no results because they simply had no idea what to use those newly acquired tools for!

This motivated KC to put even more focus on helping people to bridge this gap. KC believes that everyone has something so valuable in them that other people would want to learn from. The challenge is most people do not have a system to package and sell their knowledge. KC aims to equip everyone with the skill of turning what you know into something that people is willing to pay them for.

KC specializes in the areas of Search Engine Optimization, WordPress and eCommerce. He has extensive training experience and has conducted training courses for organizations including Singapore Compact CSR, Singapore Polytechnic, National University of Singapore Society (NUSS), Civil Service Club, JobsCentral Portal, CareerMinded and Singapore Business Federation (SBF). KC's entrepreneurial journey has also been featured in the book – “Are You Ready To Be The Next Entrepreneur?" – showcasing more than 30 successful stories of aspiring entrepreneurs!
