Linden needed a professional website for her new business venture – Living Essential Oils. We decided the best course for her to do this was – Build your own WordPress website. She chose the 10-hour package to ensure she had enough time to build the site. And then learn how to manage it. Linden just wanted to learn what she needed to successfully edit the site and add products when needed.
Linden’s goal is to build a website to sell essentials oils on behalf of doTERRA.
