Having your hosting login is important if we have to help you update the site. Without the hosting login, we can’t help you update any plugins or themes. Or add any files to the server if we need to. Please check all your logins work.

Can I set up my own website?

Yes. We have helped many startups set up a small site in a few 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 easier.

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.

1. To get the results you want

One of the most common reasons, is that clients have had a website built before and never got the results they wanted. Paying out a lot of money and not getting what you want is devastating for any small business.

2. Budget

Most businesses when starting out just don’t have a huge budget to pay a web designer. At least with a course there are no hidden expenses.

3. Don’t want to outsource

Outsourcing a website can be a very daunting process and often doesn’t end well. Especially if you know nothing about web design. Doing a course allows transparency, as you are present throughout the entire training and have your say in what gets done.

3. Learn to manage and edit

  • Many clients 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 WordPress development course not only gives you the ability to build your own WordPress site but gives business owners control over their website.

  • But if you have the right trainer/teacher you should be able to learn the basics in a few hours.

  • 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.

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.

The platform our website was built on was about to be... deleted, so we needed a new website fast. 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
