About the course

This course is built for anyone who needs a professional website for their organization or business. With the techniques in this course you will be able to build your own designs that fit your company’s visual identity. After the course, you will have an entire website that is ready for launch in a modern and future proof design.

Said in other words, you will not only learn about building a website, you will learn how to build it.

What does the course contain?

The first chapter is dedicated to design principles which gives you a good understanding of user-friendly webdesign. With these design principles you will learn how to make a WordPress website that is both a joy for the visitor to explore, well-adapted for all devices and is aimed at your target audience.

The second chapter will help you through the technical setup of the theme and plugins so you have the optimal environment to start designing your pages and inserting your content.

In the the third chapter you will learn how to prepare your images and logo for the web along with finding the correct colors for your design. In other words you will prepare all the pieces that fits together as your visual identity. You will also get a package of images you can use for practice if that’s your thing.

From there on you will build the pages needed for you organization’s website. We will design a frontpage, an about page, a services page, a blog page and a contact page.

But isn’t it really hard?

It’s true that a lot of people struggle the first time they try to create a WordPress website. That is in fact the main reason why I wanted to start teaching in the first place. So, I promise you that I will make your experience with building your own professional website in WordPress a joy, where every step will be properly explained.

You will also be happy to hear that the entire website will be built without you having to write a single line of code. This is possible with intelligent use of the page builder and theme settings that you will learn to master. In this way you are not only building a website that looks modern, but you will also be building a user-friendly website that is easy to use.

Be mindful that this is not a WordPress course where you will learn all functionalities from A-Z. In this course you will learn specifically how to build a website and design pages for your business – which is a much more fun way to learn WordPress.

So jump in and get started now with your own professional WordPress website.
