Week one - Learn what a domain name is and set up your domain name. Learn what hosting is and then set up your hosting for you website. Work out the layout of your website and figure out what content you want on your website.

Week two - Work out your brand. Choose your colours, typography (font), photo’s and design a simple logo if you don't already have one. We will be learning "Canva" a free online software tool where you can create logo's and resize images. Learn how to create content that speaks to your customer and learn how to write your about section.

Week three - Now that you have your layout and brand chosen you can get to work on building your site. Learn how to set up Wordpress, set up the Divi Theme and add your visual brand to your site. We are going to add a home page, an about page and a contact page ready to add content the following week.

Week four – Now that you have added your brand and have Wordpress set up you are going to add all of your content, images and links to each of your pages and make it look great using the Divi theme modules and builder. We will be learning how to use the Divi Theme and it's modules and builder (trust me you will love it!)

Week Five – One very important part of having a website is making sure people can actually find it. So we will be showing you how to add SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) to your site. We will be using the Yoast Plugin to help add SEO which makes it super easy.

Week Six – We will be showing you how to add other pages such as a blog and a shop (Woocommerce plugin) and how to add an email subscription form to your site. We will also learn more about what "Plugins" are and how they can help you grow your wordpress website. You will then be finishing up your build ready to launch your website into the world.

What you need to bring -

  • Your own laptop (or hire one from Canvas Coworking (contact me for prices))
  • Credit Card or paypal account to purchase Domain, Hosting and Divi Theme in week 1 and week 3

Building a website can be a challenge but with the right support and guidance you will get there.

You will also be invited to join our facebook support group so after the workshop you won't be on your own. This facebook group will be a great place to support each other as we grow our websites and businesses and problem-solve together. No body knows everything, but together we definitely know more.
