You fancy building your own site but are worried it’ll take you down a rabbit hole. You know how popular WordPress is, but are still scared of the techy stuff.
Our one-day SiteBuilder workshop course is the perfect way to avoid the tech, get expert help and walk away with a website fit for purpose.
- We build the site WITH you and explain the bits you need to know
- You get to learn the important part of running a business website
- You get a deeper understanding of WordPress, SEO and marketing
We’ve been running these day courses since 2012 and they’re a perfect halfway house between the going it alone or paying a higher price to get it done by an agency.
Built in a day, supported for life
We’ll take care of all the technical details and set up your site and show you design options. Then you’ll be shown how to add and edit content, add images, add and change pages.
Then you’ll get hands-on with the actual work of populating your site knowing you have professional support right next to you. It’s a six-hour day broken into two halves.
You can get extra help anytime you need with our lifetime support options.
I’m a businessperson not a techie
We understand that. You’re not learning to be a web designer, you’re building a website specifically for your business model and goals. It’s not a classroom, it’s a six-hour session about your business. There’s no code and more geared towards solving your customers’ problems.
What do I need to bring?
- A laptop computer and charger
- Your words, pictures and logo (if you have one)
What will I leave with?
Most people who do this course are ready to launch their site at the end of the day, but you may wish to go away and make some more changes with your new-found skills. It’s up to you, but you will leave with a site that’s fit for purpose and a business-level knowledge of:
- Site structure
- SEO (we won’t get technical on you)
- Headlines and
- Security and updates
- Writing copy and using pictures
- Adding new features
