Quick and Easy Websites

professionally designed and built – ready for you

Are you looking to build your own website?  Friends have told you you can build your own (although you may not be convinced).  Maybe you’re just starting out and can’t justify the cost of getting a professional involved?  Or you want something quickly.  I mean – why wait?

But, the reality is that the world of websites is a confusing space.  Should you build it in Wix, Weebly, WordPress or one of those other ones? There’s so many to choose from.  How easy is it to build something that is going to look professional enough to represent your business?   That’s not going to require a lot of time?  There are sooo many other things you need to do in your business.  You don’t have all the time in the world….

There is an alternative…

We have pre-built websites designed by professionals for small business owners.  They can be quickly installed on your website domain (that’s your website address) and then customised in a few hours with your logo, branding colours, images and text.

Quick and Easy to customise

It’s exactly the same kind of website that we build bespoke for our clients.  Built in WordPress.  Wordpress powers over 35% of websites.  This compares to less than 2% for each of Wix and Squarespace.  It’s what most professional website designers use.  Wordpress websites are incredibly flexible – they can grow with your business.  And they’re portable so if you don’t like the prices or terms you can move to another host.

And with our set up you don’t have to worry about them being more difficult to set up or maintain than any website builder.  In fact, we believe they’re easier and quicker…

 

Why Quick and Easy websites?

The world of websites is confusing.  This course will give you a website exactly the same as the demo and with full step by step instructions to customise it.

You will receive a licence to use the same premium theme we use for our bespoke websites.  This will allow you to make further changes in the future – it is fully adaptable.  It will also allow you to add on courses, memberships, etc (additional costs may be incurred with these).

Furthermore, you will have access to our “Build your own Website” membership providing both support and additional resources to add to your website.

What will you get?

As part of this course you will get: 

  • Full instructions on how to purchase a domain name and website hosting (using our preferred host)

  • The demo website uploaded onto your website (within 2 business days of you providing us the required information)*

  • A series of step by step videos showing you exactly how to customise the demo with your branding colours, logo, text, images and links (including social media and contact info)
  • 1 month membership of the “Build your own Website Club”, a facebook group of support and additional resources to expand your website

* the demo website has wordpress preloaded (if you use our recommended hosting) together with the premium theme (and lifetime access to updates)

The cost of the course is £250

There are currently 2 websites available to choose from

Laura is an ecommerce website which means it incorporates a shop function.

Emily does not come with a shop function so please don’t buy this one if you want a shop!

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is this course for?

This course is for anyone who wants to build a new website from scratch.

What else will I need to buy to get a working website?

You will need to buy your own domain name (price varies depending upon your name, but likely to be around £10/year) and website hosting (our recommended website host costs £35.40 + VAT, £42.48 inc VAT for the first year).

WordPress is free.  The demo includes the premium theme used so you do not need to buy this too.

What tech is used to build the website?

The websites are built in WordPress using the Divi theme from Elegant Themes.  For websites with a shop function WooCommerce is used.

How much time will it take?

You have immediate access to all the modules.

It should take no longer than 1/2 hour to purchase the domain, hosting and fill in the required details to get the demo website uploaded.  The demo website will be uploaded to you within 2 working days of submitting the form (we try to do these quicker but it is a manual process).

Assuming you have the text for your website pre-written and images available in the correct format, it should take about 3 – 4 hours to customise the website plus about 10 minutes for each product you want to include in your shop.

I am “technologically challenged” – will I be able to customise my own website?

Provided you can follow instructions you can customise your own website.   You do not need any coding.  You don’t need any technical knowledge at all. 

What if I get stuck?

You have access to our “Build your own Website Club” facebook group free for one month (and £20/month thereafter if you want to continue).  Post any questions in there and we will respond.  Over time we expect a bank of questions and answers to build up so you will also be able to search.

How long can I take to complete the course?

You can take as long as you want, although we advise you to get cracking on it straight away!  We are big believers in taking action.  The course materials will be available to you forever.

What if I want to further customise the website or add additional functionality?

Your website is built in WordPress which is incredibly flexible to be changed as your business changes.  There are thousands of additional “plugins” which can be added to increase the functionality of your website.  You can add the ability to take bookings, online courses, memberships, email sign ups and many more.  Some of these are shown in the Build your own Website Club (remember you have one month free access included).

Can I have something more bespoke?

This course gives you the website purchased, with instructions to customise for your branding colours, text, images, links etc.  If you want something different you can either buy the course and change the website (instructions are not provided for this) or we can build you something bespoke.  You can see the details of our bespoke website building packages here.

I need help with writing my website too

If you need help with writing the content for your website we have a separate course available to buy for this which you can purchase here.

What does it cost?

The cost of the course is £250 (plus £20/month for the Build your own Website Club if you want to continue to be a member after the first month).
