Does my website really get built in just one day?
Yes, and no. While the majority of your website will be completed on the day of the workshop, there is some prep work required to make it a smooth process. Which is why we provide you with worksheets and email education prior to the event.
The Build a DIY Website in One-Day workshop is $499.
How can we build a website so fast?
Preparation is key to crafting anything, and websites are no different. We'll guide through writing the most essential written content that will help your business show the right customers what you offer.
If for any reason we think a different approach would be more suited to your needs, we’ll connect with you to discuss the next steps.
Are there any on-going costs associated with a WordPress website?
I’m glad you asked. For this workshop, we’ll be using the hosted version of WordPress maintained by Automattic. They offer a free edition to get started, which uses a “your-company.wordpress.com” domain. This is sufficient for getting started quickly as hosting is included.
If you plan on connecting a domain, either one you already own or plan to purchase, expect to upgrade to their WordPress Starter package, currently at $5/mo. Additional options are available for more specific needs.
If, after our workshop, you decide you'd rather have a custom designed website that is professionally managed, I’d be happy to give you an estimate. These are built and maintained by Orbital Creative with high-performance managed hosting.
I have more questions. What do I do?
That's easy. Reach out to me and I'll get back to you ASAP.
Do I need copy, professional photos, and branding to attend this workshop?
You do need brand collateral to join the first cohort on July 6th. However, you don't need professional copy or photos. This “Done-in-a-Day” service is specifically for those who don’t have the time to wait for a photographer, copywriter to collaborate with us.
- Our content development worksheets are designed to gather and guide you in creating the essential copy you need to promote your business online.
- While I do recommend professional photos, we also provide guidance on sourcing stock photos and using smartphone photography effectively. We can always find workarounds that allow you to launch your website quickly and allow you to make content changes later.
WordPress is intimidating…will I be able to use my new website?
Absolutely! While WordPress has a reputation for being complicated, I'll show you just how easy it is to create and maintain a website. We’ll cover all the essentials you need—like creating pages, changing out photos, and editing copy.
If, after our workshop, you decide you'd rather not manage your site yourself, I’ve got you covered with my monthly WordPress management plan.
How often do you host workshops like this DIY Website Building workshop?
