I will teach you how to make a professional website with WordPress.
From buying a domain name and hosting, to adding your content and images, I will walk you step-by-step through the whole process.
This website guide is designed specifically for the small business owner, entrepreneur, or artist. You need a great looking site. You can’t afford to hire someone to build it. You’re ok with the Do It Yourself approach as long as it actually works and the result looks great.
You’re not a professional marketer, programmer, or web developer. Your goal isn’t to learn web design, your goal is to get a website up and move on to building your business.
You don’t have much time OR money. You need something now and it’s got to look great.
This guide is for you, and it’s absolutely free.
I will teach you how to make a professional website with WordPress. Your only costs are associated with buying a domain name (GoDaddy) and hosting (Hostgator), along with some optional upgrades (like a theme from StudioPress). Your total cost from start to finish can be less than $99, with 1 year of hosting included. (the guide itself is free!)
There are no gimmicks or tricks. It’s not just a part of what you need, it’s the whole thing.
When you’re done, you will have a professional website that looks like the demo and you’ll know your way around WordPress pretty well.
From there, you can customize it all you want.
The guide is split into four parts to keep it simple and manageable.
You should be able to complete the whole process in a few evenings or over a weekend, depending on how comfortable you are with working online.

What’s the catch?
There is no catch. I’m a big fan of small business, entrepreneurs, and artists. People who passionate about what they do and need a little help executing from the marketing side of things. I teach seminars and workshops, I coach and consult, and I do my best to create value in everything I do. I hate seeing great businesses with really bad websites. Let me teach you how to make a professional website with WordPress. Please!?!
Why another WordPress tutorial?
There’s a lot of help online when it comes to building a WordPress website. But from what I’ve seen, it’s either too simplistic and assumes you know a lot more than you probably do, making it very frustrating. Or, it’s too technical. After all, you’re goal isn’t to learn website development, you just need a professional website to support what you do. NOTE: If you want to learn website development, how to build custom websites, or how to manage and tweak every feature of a WordPress website, this isn’t for you. This guide is for the busy person who needs a great looking website on a budget, and wants to get it up quickly so they can get on to the critical work of building their business.
How long will it take?
If you’re like most small business owners and entrepreneurs, you don’t have huge blocks of free time. You have a few minutes here. A half hour block of time later. Maybe an hour or two over the weekend. I designed this for you. If you tackle 2-3 sections at a time, you can get this done in a few nights, maybe a week. If you go straight through without stopping, you could make a professional website with WordPress in a few hours. It all depends on how comfortable you are working on line.
How much does it cost?
I will teach you how to make a professional website with WordPress, from start to finish, for free. This guide will always be free. However, there are some costs associated with building a website with WordPress. You’ll need to purchase a domain name, you need hosting (a place for your site to live), and if you want to make sure it looks great and is doesn’t cause headaches, there are some third party costs that are optional. If you have absolutely no money, this guide isn’t for you. There are ways to get “something” up for just a few dollars, but as a business owner, entrepreneur, or artist, I wouldn’t recommend it. In relatable terms, you could buy a car for $1,000, but I’m not sure it’d get you where you want to go without a lot of hassle. In general, you can expect to spend less than $99, with a year of hosting included. 6 or 7 years ago, the same quality website would have cost $5,000.
What if I want a different look than the demo?
In order to show the entire process start to finish, I picked a nice, professional theme that will work for a large number of businesses just by changing out the photos or picking a different color scheme. Most quality themes come with their own instructions, so picking another theme during the development process should be fine. Again, this depends on how comfortable you are working with WordPress. I will be adding a few tutorials on a few industry types in the near future (restaurants, retail, artists, etc.) Be sure to join my email list to be notified when those are live.
