Who's leading this Workshop?

Andre Casey Scott

Hi, I'm André Scott.

I'm a website designer and front-end developer who has seen a lot of small business owners with the same problem.

They know they need a good website, but either aren’t confident with technology to muddle through on their own or they build a website themselves that isn’t working well for their business.

They know they want something simple and effective, though often they just suffer with a clunky, ugly website that doesn’t represent their company well on the internet.

I help them fix that.

Education

I received my Bachelors in Psychology at Southern Oregon University and an Associates in Graphic Design at Lane Community College.

Background

Starting in editorial & print design, I’ve worked on magazines, newspapers, and in design agencies. I've been helping businesses & non-profits with websites since 2017.

Awards

I’ve received many awards including a Associated Collegiate Press Pacemaker award and Design of the Year awards.
Above are some examples of websites designed by the host of this workshop

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

How much does this cost?

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?

We host workshops plus other events online & in-person on a variety of topics. This website building workshop is currently planned for July 6, July 30, and August 16, 2022. We'll continue to offer these workshops on a regular basis in the future, depending on demand.

Do you offer payment plans?

Given the unique nature of this event, payment is due in full upon booking. Additional addons may be purchased during the workshop.
