Not a coder?

Whether you don’t have a site yet or you have one that you wish to restart from scratch, this is the place for you. No coding needed to make a basic website!


Why WordPress?

  • Easy interface to add, update, and move around content
  • Responsive
  • Lots of features
  • Huge community who love to help
  • It’s always evolving with technology and staying at the top of the curve

Two Kinds?

There are two kinds of WordPress: WordPress.com and WordPress.org. We are going to create a WordPress.com website.

Read about both here:
https://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

If you are coming in with an existing WordPress.org, please speak with the instructor in advance to work out if the class is for you.
Making Basic Websites Without Coding: Please note that this does not cover highly customized design needs.


What We Will Cover:

  • We are going to walk through step-by-step together creating your site foundation.
  • The class and instructor will help you pick a great template design (theme). Anyone who has prior knowledge of CSS, the instructor can also show you where to put it to modify the design.
  • The two questions every website builder must consider.
  • We will walk through creating your menu structure, adding custom features, and setting up your custom domain so it doesn’t end in wordpress.com.
  • Individual time to work on your site along with the help of classmates and the instructor.

You will need:

    • A computer that can handle working on a website and being on an online meeting at the same time
    • A good internet connection
    • A credit card in case you choose to do any WordPress.com upgrades to have a more polished and professional site (such as removing wordpress.com from your domain and removing ads).

Websites normally cost $1000 or more to hire a developer or take months to create on your own.

You will have your basic site completed in 7 two-hour evenings and for a fraction of the cost.

This workshop is:

  • Regular price $349
  • Special discount for the Brand Evolution Bootcamp weekend: $249
