About This Class

As a freelance web designer, I've been creating websites with WordPress for individuals and small businesses for years, and in this class, I'm going to show you just how easy it is to create a website for your own business with this amazing free tool.

Most classes start out by telling you what you need to know to get started. Instead, I'm going to tell you what you don't need:

  • You don't need to be a computer geek.
  • You don't need to know how to code.
  • You don't need a lot of money.

WordPress handles all the hard stuff for you, and I'll talk you through the rest.  If you've got basic computer skills on either Windows or Mac, and are comfortable surfing the web, you've got what it takes to complete this project. 

So grab a cup of coffee, pull up a chair, and let's get started building your website!
