Can I set up my own website?

Yes. We have helped many startups set up a small site in 2 hours. So they could go away and continue building the site themselves. Often they may have a follow up session face to face or online.

Usually we start them on a self hosted WordPress.org site. And give them a free premium theme called Divi. Which allows them to choose a professional, mobile responsive template that they can just go in and populate. Making the task of creating a website from scratch very simple.

Build your Own WordPress Website Course

Are you pulling your hair out trying to build your own site? Are you looking for a WordPress developer to help you build a website for your business?

We can help you build a professional WordPress website!
Not to mention, have it up and running in no time at all! We GIVE you awesome resources including one of the most popular WordPress themes on the market [DIVI]. Worth over $130 AUD. As well as, an up to date WordPress guide and online videos.

How much does it cost to build my own website?

This WordPress course has 2 options.

$895.00 + GST – for 10 pages, basic site.
$1200.00 + GST – for 10 plus pages and a more complex site with advanced features.

Who's this course suitable for?

This course is suitable for anyone who wants to build their own WordPress website for a business or startup. It’s also great if you have an old website thats in desperate need of a redesign.

It’s the perfect solution for startups & small business. Giving you full control over your website & ongoing costs. We teach a lot of small businesses who have had a website built by someone else and can’t edit the site. So we rebuild the site, in a WordPress theme that allows them to edit the site themselves.

Saving you valuable time and money.

 

Why would I build my own website?

Clients come to us to build their own website for a few reasons.

Firstly, the most common reason is that they have had a website built before by a web developer and never got the result they wanted. Paying out a lot of money and not getting what you want is devastating for any small business.

Secondly, because they are just starting a business and don’t have a huge budget to pay a WordPress developer. And they are also scared to outsource. As sometimes you don’t always have a great experience with this.

Lastly, a lot of people want to learn all about WordPress and how to edit their site ongoing. Not only to save money but to save the delays in waiting for a developer to help them. We hear this time and time again, that developers often take weeks before they even respond to a client’s request for support.

And then pay a small fortune for something simple that they could have done themselves, if they knew how.

This course not only helps you build our WordPress site but shows you how to do simple edits.

Is it easy to learn WordPress?

For some people, it is very easy. For others it’s not so easy. But if you have the right trainer/teacher you should be able to learn the basics in a few hours.

It really depends on your theme. Some themes are highly customised,  making it harder for you to edit.

We can help you solve this problem in our WordPress training sessions.

We just ask you to send us a list of what you need to cover. Then we will check your site to make sure it’s possible.

You must, however, be confident on a computer. If you don’t have basic computer skills you may find it difficult to learn WordPress.

What's the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org?

They are made by the same company. But have clear differences.

WordPress.com

  • It is free up to a certain point.
  • You need to pay a fee to remove the ads and add your own domain name.
  • You can’t manage your own server or control panel (Cpanel).
  • That means you can’t access the server at all if something goes wrong.
  • WordPress developers can’t modify files or templates because they can’t access the server.
  • You also cannot manage your own emails.
  • It costs a yearly fee of around $300 AUD to buy plugins.
  • The free themes are limited. Only around 150.
  • You can buy WordPress themes but these are also limited.

WordPress.org

  • The big advantage of .org is you can manage everything yourself or your developer can.
  • You can edit the files on the server.
  • Rebuild page templates etc.
  • Manage your own custom emails.
  • You have full access to the control panel.
  • It has over 60,000 free plugins and over 5000 free themes.
  • And endless amounts of premium/paid themes.
  • So it is definitely more flexible for your business.

Based on my 10 years + experience with WordPress. I would definitely recommend WordPress.org.

Instead of paying someone to build me a new site, I wanted to learn from scratch how to put one together, so I could successfully manage it going forward. I bought a ten hour Word Press training package with Jodi, where she came to my office over three days and we built the new site together - and all the while I was learning the Word Press ropes. The result is a top notch, fresh new website that has received nothing but positive feedback from all stakeholders. I'm so appreciative of Jodi for her professionalism, knowledge, patience and flexibility. I'm now confident I can maintain the site, and know I can call on her for technical input if needs be. Highly recommended.read more
