About This Class

Are you wondering how to create a website, but not sure how to get started? Do you think that the only way to have a successful website that gets found online is to hire a professional?

I created this course because, like you, I once was a little lost and confused about creating a website. And yes, I too thought I had to pay someone. After a lot of perseverance, I finally learned the ins and outs of Wordpress and managed to create a Google page #1 ranked website. 

This course was designed to teach anyone how to use Wordpress to build an incredibly beautiful, functional website. Unlike the other courses that begin with a blank slate and build a site, I'll be taking more of a retrospective approach; taking you from finished product backwards. This style of learning is ideal for the visual learner that likes to see, then do.

If you're like me and have a "can do" attitude, I will show you how to create a website that not only looks ultra-professional, but also ranks well in Google. I'll take you on a behind-the-scenes look at my website and show you the proven SEO methods I used to get there.

Avada is a great theme and this helped me figure it out.
Ben Hill has done an outstanding job with this course! I'm not done yet, but he has demystified many of the functions and features of this theme. I'm looking forward to finishing and applying this knowledge to crafting my website for my artwork with the confidence to create an effective site and blog. Thanks, Ben!
This class served as a great introduction to WordPress using the Avada theme. I found it much more instructive and helpful than the Avada tutorials. In the end, I gave up using Avada's tutorials and just used this SkillShare course instead and was able to learn much more-- even with using a different Avada template than the one in this course. Thanks a lot!

Entrepreneur, Web Design, Doctor

By profession, I'm primarily a doctor, but for as long as I can remember, building computers, web design, and video production have always been a close second. Collectively, I love sharing my knowledge and experiences with others to help simplify or improve their lives.

I'm a true entrepreneur. I love the challenge of figuring things out on my own and then doing it better than anyone else around. Not because I have something to prove, but because I love to learn.

The greatest satisfaction I get in life is helping others. I've spent years working with Wordpress and Photoshop, and I would love the opportunity to show you how to make some really incredible material.
