  • A laptop or desktop computer, access to the web and a browser. A notepad and pen will be helpful, too.

This course is for you if you've not got a website, but know you should have one - or you have a website but know it no longer meets your business goals. You're likely to be a creative entrepreneur or a small business owner, who would not describe themselves as especially 'techie'. You'll be making an entry-level site which you can upgrade later.

As you travel through the course, you'll have a workbook to fill in and lots of practical exercises. To save your time, you'll be given formats to choose the best content for your customers and to create interesting content, however 'unsexy' your subject area is.

You'll discover how to best measure and link your site to your other social media platforms and how to audit your site - and other people's, if you so wish - for irresistibility.

The course will take about a day or the equivalent, say 6-7 hours,to work through, and there are pieces of research homework en route.

You'll be building your website along with Jan, Lara and Matt, three different types of small business owner, with their own distinctive needs.

We'll work through:

  • Your goals - business and website
  • Design - what host to choose, your most important decision
  • Content - using formats to create content and content strategy quickly
  • Links - how your site sits within your social media and marketing world
  • Irresistibility Audit - key components to make your customers convert and revisit
Who is the target audience?
  • This course is designed for a freelancer, small business owner or creative entrepreneur who wants to make their own low-cost website, quickly and to achieve their business goals.

Writer and Psychologist

You can look forward to lots of interactivity, practical outputs and fun from my courses, as I love learning through doing. My main theme is better business communication, and I especially like giving you 1-2-1 feedback - so courses are designed for this. 

Hello, I'm Philippa, writer and business psychologist, with 30 years experience of freelance writing - as web editor, newspaper columnist, TV scriptwriter and book author - and working as a business psychologist for blue chip clients.

The Times kindly serialised my non-fiction bestseller 'Irresistibility' while my self-published novel got made into a double Bafta winning TV film.

You could say that I'm possessed by the psychology of how we get our message through to each other, which means I've coached Olympic Head Coaches, Oscar Winners, Prime and Cabinet Ministers in the UK and company directors at GE, NBC, Merck, BBC, and Universal Pictures. Now I work as web editor for FYI Network.

I love to teach and do so for universities and the National Union of Journalists in the UK.

But as a Brit who really doesn't like boasting I'd prefer to talk about you than me.

You'll like my courses, then, if you think that writing is much more important than many people realise, that a successful writer of today needs to have multimedia and marketing skills, and that one of most exciting feelings in the world is to express an idea cogently and have others say 'You truly made me think here'...

It's lovely to meet you, fellow communicator...
