Check out some students sites
Most of these students have completed the Create a WordPress Website course –  students websites.
What is the aim of this training?
Lots of people who are starting a new business or a small business that wants a re-vamp, do not have the budget to pay thousands of dollars to a web developer who they do not even know will do the job correctly.

We have taught many students who have paid anywhere from $5000 – $10,000 to a web developer and they haven’t built the website that that was promised.

Some students had no access to change things in the WordPress admin, so we had to redesign the website in the training to allow them to make the changes they needed to be able to manage their website ongoing.  This cuts out over-priced web developer fees ranging anywhere from $500-$1000 for each change.

The aim of creating a WordPress website together with a trainer is to help you:

  1. Get the results you want.
  2. Teach you how to manage your own website ongoing.
  3. It will also make you more aware of the web design process, which can help prepare you for dealing with web developers in the future.
  4. Lastly, this training will help save you money which can be allocated to other areas of your business  – like online marketing like Google and Facebook.
  5. There is no point in having a website if no one can find it.
  • Once your business grows, then you may be able to afford a web developer to build the complex features of the site for you.
  • This training will teach you how to create a WordPress website, whether it’s to build your own website or so you can build websites for clients.
Will we get my website completed in 1 day?
  • We will discuss with you before the training what type of website you need.
  • Once we know what you require, we can then decide which training package will be the best for you.
  • From experience in setting up other student’s sites, we usually always have enough time to set up the main structure of the website in the basic website package.
  • Including; the homepage layout, other generic pages like, contact, about, services, blog and add the content to these pages.
  • You will learn all the WordPress basics, so you should be able to go away knowing how to add content like text and images to your new site.
  • If we think your website is more complex, then we will recommend you do the next package up – $1095.
  • This package allows more time for more advanced features of a website.
  • For e.g. like a client portal, membership, events, shop.

What's next?
After completing this course – what should I do next to promote my website?

Creating a WordPress website is one thing but getting visitors to your site can be more complex. You need to work on your online marketing to get traffic and the right type of visitors to your website.

We can offer you a further 2-hour training session [$190] to help you get your website found on Google and Bing on the first page. Building up your web presence in the search engines is a process that doesn’t happen straight away.

The website is the first step to online presence, the second step is marketing it. You can market via paid advertising or build up your site’s reputation and authority with some organic (free) search engine optimisation (SEO).

Obviously, with a startup or small business, you might not have a big budget for paid advertising.
I would recommend learning some basic SEO (search engine optimisation) to get you started.  You can learn some simple techniques to help your website list on Google organically.
Then once you have the budget start a few advertising campaigns with Google, Bing or Facebook.

Having both an organic Google listing and Google ads can really boost your online presence and bring more traffic to your website.
