When it comes to website creation, you have 2 options..
#1. Hire someone to create it for you
Obviously, this is the easier option. However, there’s always the risk that you’ll be disappointed with the final product (unless you have a huge budget and can afford lots of edits). I’ve seen this happen many times, even with bigger brands with bigger budgets.
Also, what about depending on someone else to make updates to the website? You may want to do a web refresh later down the road or add functionalities and integrations. Relying on someone to do these things can slow things down or add unexpected costs.
#2. Create the site yourself
If you want to be in control, this is the better option. After all, the vision for your brand and website comes from you.
Also, how nice would it be to be able to make changes to the website whenever you want? And save lots of money since you’re doing it yourself?
But then of course, the risk of creating your own site is that it ends up looking amateurish, and worse, has a bunch of errors and security vulnerabilities.
Well, here’s an easy solution. I’ll guide you through the process of creating and maintaining the website.
I know how to set up a website. I know so many web solutions and their prices and features. I know which ones are great and which ones are awful. I know web maintenance. I know web optimization.
And I’m handing you all of my knowledge acquired from working with more than 50 client websites + a few of my own.

Are you the right person for this course?
This course is for you if you have no technical background, and have no interest in learning how to create a website from scratch. You’re busy, and you want to get a website up quickly while learning the basics of user experience, security, copywriting, and more.
What results will I get?
You will have a brand new professional website at the end of this course, whether it’s for your company or your personal brand. You will also be equipped with knowledge and tools to update, enhance (including e-commerce, appointment booking, etc), and maintain the website.
Why should I learn from you?
There are very few people that are experts in both web development and digital marketing. I know full stack web development, and I’ve also managed digital campaigns as an in-house marketing manager and agency-side marketing director. My well-rounded experience will help you to choose the right products to get the most bang for your buck, as well as to help you gain a broader perspective of how the website fits with your business objective and helps your audience.
Also, I acquired my technical skills after college. I still remember how confusing everything was when I was first setting up my site. This is the course I wish I could’ve taken back then.
What will I use to create a website?
We’ll use WordPress. Here’s an article I wrote on why it’s the best solution for most people: Why WordPress?
What kind of support and resources will I get?
You will be provided with step-by-step video tutorials, articles, worksheets, an online forum with fellow students, and more. If you take this class with a cohort (you will have the option to choose during the signup), you will have extra accountability as you will get additional support with students and myself as we go through the course material together at the same time. We’ll also have a little competition for the best website that’s created.
What time commitment is required?
If you sign up for the cohort option, this course runs for 3 weeks. Set aside about an hour a day on weekdays. You’ll have the weekend to catch up on the previous week.
If you sign up for the self-paced option, expect to spend at minimum 15 hours total.
