How to Build a Website

In this course, I’ll walk you through the steps to launch your website using WordPress. The course will include lessons on choosing your domain and hosting, installing WordPress, customizing your theme, and more! You’ll learn tips on creating a great site and some tips on how to scale your website to include eCommerce.

The course on How to Build a Website is designed for people who need a static site for their personal profile, side hustle, or for their new business.

While not the focus, it includes how to add a blog to your site if/when you want to, and an introduction to selling digital or physical products on your site.

Building a Website with WordPress

In this tutorial, I’ll be using WordPress, open-source software that powers 40% of the web. Not sure what open-source means, what the difference between web hosting and email hosting is, and how to buy a domain? I’ll walk you through all of it. Not only will you have a great blog at the end of it, but you’ll also feel more confident about understanding the web and how to maintain your site.
