Do You Brush Your Teeth? Then You Need A Website!

By ·Principal/Creative Director

These days, not having a website is like having bad breath.  Join the millions of Americans who enjoy the benefits of creating and maintaining their own websites with WordPress by signing up for this class. 

When Pepsodent toothpaste hit the market, less than 10% of Americans brushed their teeth. Today, over 95% of Americans brush their teeth. Pepsodent marketed toothpaste as a "creator of beauty" and formed a new American habit much as Digital Media has completely changed the way Americans get their information. Today, the web is the first place 85% of people go to find out about you, your life,  and your work.

But you need to know coding, right? Wrong! In this course, we'll teach you how to build, launch, and maintain your own WordPress website - all without knowing any code and at a fraction of the usual cost.

  • We'll walk you through web hosting and domain name purchasing
  • We’ll walk you through the WordPress dashboard (where all the magic happens)
  • We'll help you layout your site, develop the navigation, create galleries, and pages.
  • You’ll learn the fundamental concepts of web development
  • We'll walk you through uploading and launching your website
  • You'll leave with a website that will be fully functional on all current devices and the skills to maintain your site

Now, that's a breath of fresh air!

Prerequisites
Have a general idea for your website and an enthusiastic attitude. IMPORTANT! Bring your lap top (fully charged). You will be working on your project during class.
