Website in a Weekend [New Course]

We are so excited to launch our second course, which launches June 9: Website in a Weekend!

This course is geared toward the do-it-yourself-er  who is tech savvy, but just doesn’t know how to stylize and create a WordPress Website. We’ll be starting with the basics of purchasing hosting and installing WordPress and the Enfold theme, followed by selecting brand colors and fonts. At this point, I’ll bring your through creating captivating pages, inserting forms, and best practices for your website content.

The Website in a Weekend course includes self-paced lectures, handouts, tutorials, and step by step guides.

Over the course of June 23, 24, 25, I will be working with a select group of solopreneurs, marketing teams, business owners, bloggers, and those with brilliant ideas to create their dream websites. Prior to the weekend, I will host a free welcome webinar (registration below) to help you decide if you are a candidate for the Website in a Weekend course. I simplify the entire website design process, but still require individuals to be motivate and have some knowledge of technology.

For this weekend you will have access to me via the Members Only Facebook Group where I will be answering questions live. There is also the option for additional support that we can add on should you need it beyond this intensive weekend.

What’s Included in Website in a Weekend?

 

Module 1: Setting the Stage

Before you even start building your website, you need to think about your website and business as a whole. Here you will be guided through:

  • Defining your business
  • Researching your competitors
  • Thinking big

Module 2: Branding your Business

Without brand standards, your entire presence can feel disjoint. This is an integral piece to any marketing and can transform your website from blah to a true masterpiece. We will provide a:

  • Values tool to gain clarity on your person (and business) values
  • Font pairing workbook to select your core business fonts
  • Colors overview and step by step how to choose the colors that define your business
  • Overview of images and and overall feeling of your brand

Module 3: Your Website Content

We aren’t quite at setting up your website yet! Before you even create that first page of your site, it works best to know what pages you need and already have the content for those pages. Here you will:

  • Use a workbook to select the must-have pages on your site
  • Begin writing the content for these pages
  • Understand effective calls to action on your pages

You will also receive templates to write:

  • Your  About Page
  • Services Pages
  • Product Pages

Module 4: Website Layout and Wireframe

Finally, let’s think about your website design. Here we will work through:

  • Identifying the elements of other websites that you are drawn to
  • Constructing your page hierarchy (which pages are parent pages  vs subpages)
  • Building a wireframe (or visual layout of your website)

Module 5: Let’s Get to Building

As long as you have a guide and think only one step at a time, the technical side of building your site can actually be a breeze! You’ve already completed the tough stuff. Now we just need to work through putting the elements together. In this module we:

  • Purchase hosting and your domain if you haven’t already
  • Install Worpress and upload the Enfold theme (for $75, I am happy to complete this step for you)
  • Follow our Step by Step guide to checking your WordPress settings from hosting through to final design
  • Complete an overview of widgets on your site
  • Have access to numerous templates for page designs
  • Access to a guide to use additional elements in the Enfold theme

Why Enfold?

We love the Enfold theme and have found it customizes to really any design you desire without needing to add additional plugins or touch the code. From photographers to business consultants, technology companies and chiropracters, this theme does it all!

Module 6: Plugins

Though Enfold does it all, we have a list of plugins that we recommend for all websites to increase the search engine optimization, optimize your lead funnel, and more. This module

  • Walks you through the concept of a Plugin
  • Gives access to the top plugins we use for clients

Blog posts and articles are meant to be reused! Think of a typical blog you write, is there a list or bullets? Do you break the content up into multiple segments? Are there different ways to phrase the blog title? Your blog post can be recycled as social media posts and shared to other networks in its entirety.

Module 7: Forms, Freebies, and Subscribers

Congratulations! You have a beautiful, branded website to which you are empowered to make changes! A website is an ever-morphing project that can continue to grow as you write blog posts, expand your services, and create resources for prospects. The last piece of the puzzle is to set your business up for success using forms, freebies, and subscribers. Here you will:

  • Understand why freebies on your site are more than just giving information away for free
  • Receive step-by-step information on how to create and embed forms on your site using MailChimp
  • A sneak peak into Convert Kit for those looking to take their subscriber list to a new level
  • Templates for creating your own EBooks, Infographics, and more!

Once you complete the Website in a Weekend course, you will continue to have complete access to all the lectures, resources, handouts, and tools. Additionally, you will keep your membership to the Website in a Weekend Facebook Group for additional support from my team and other businesses that have been through the process of designing and building their website!
