Creating a Website in Wix or Wordpress
Wed, October 12, 2016, 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM BST
Learn the skills needed to create and manage your own website.
In this 9 part hands on workshop, I teach you how to plan, create, build and launch your own Wordpress, or WIX website from start to finish.
We use Wordpress and Wix to create the site and Site Ground / Blue Host as a host (only necessary for W.Press). If you prefer using other hosts that is okay too, we can get you set up on those. You can choose whether Wordpress or Wix is right for you and your tech abilities.
After training clients in various Social Media platforms ranging from Facebook to Mailchimp, I realised that many clients did not have a base to direct ALL clients too. I created www.petitedj.com website in 9 days using wordpress, and www.quest4success.co.uk in a few weeks using Wix which has led to me attracting my ideal clients, in conjunction with using Social Media platforms. I realised that many people don’t have a website due to not being able to afford the costs and maintenance of a web designer, so I am passing on my skills to assist people to create their own websites on a shoestring too!
In these classes we will coach you through...
1. Visual branding and planning your website
2. Image, video and logo creating
3. Setting up your domain and hosting (Look at Wix Vs Wordpress)
4. Choosing and installing the applications, themes & widgets
5. Building your website using Wordpress or WIX
6. Drafting pages to include on your website
7. Creating pages eg Home, About Us, Services/Products, Contact Us
8. Creating subscription boxes/widgets for viewers to your website
9. Optimizing SEO and creating additional pages or a landing page
