course information

Preparation before the course

There will be preparation needed before the course. The better prepared you are, the easier the course will be. Full details of what to prepare will be emailed to each student after enrollment. 

^

WordPress and Woocommerce

We will be working with WordPress and Woocommerce both are free to use.

The Divi Page Builder by Elegant Themes

We will be using Divi to build the website. If you do not want to invest in Divi, I would not recommend enrolling in my course. There are other page builders but I like Divi and have chosen to teach with it. See below for more information about Divi.

^

A staging site will be provided

WordPress requires hosting and a domain name to work. For the course I will provide a staging site for each student with WordPress installed. When your site is finished and you are ready to launch it you will need to have a domain name and hosting in place. All the information you need to migrate your site from the staging server to it's live server will be available.

^

Plan, Prep, Launch! ebook

I have written a book about all the things you need to know about and do before you create a website for your business. You will get a free pdf copy of this book after you enrol. I recommend you read through the book as it contains information about WordPress, domain names and hosting that will make everything much clearer.

During the course

Two days is a very small amount of time to build a website. The days will be intense, I will work at a pace that I think is sustainable for most.

Please keep in mind that you will not manage to build an entire website and online shop in the two days. We will aim to have your basic outline for the pages created and the online shop setup and a test run of the checkout process done.

The main aim of the course is to get the set up of the shop complete, at least one product loaded up and all the settings for shipping, payment gateways and emails done. So you'll end the weekend with the knowledge of how to complete your site.

The course is very intense! You will need to be able to concentrate working on a computer for a long period of time.

^

After the course

The week after the course I will start the coaching calls. During these calls we can revisit any of the aspected we covered in the course weekend. The coaching calls will be recorded and you will have access to the recordings.

^

Taking your staging site live

You will need a domain name and hosting when your site goes live.

On the course you will be working with a staging site on Sian's hosting server. A pdf with details will be provided on how to migrate (move) your site to your domain name when the site is ready.

^

Course Requirement

All courses need a minimum of 8 students to run.

If 8 seats do not sell on any course date refunds will be given or an option to transfer to a new date.

You must have a laptop to work on. If you do not have a computer that you can use, please do not enrol. No computers will be provided on the In Person course.

^

Cancellation and Refunds

If you need to cancel your place on the course, please email as soon as you can.

I will try and help you to find someone to take your place. Any financial transaction will be between you and the person purchasing the course from you.

If no replacement can be found, a refund of 50% will be given up to 7 days before the start of the course.

I’m Sian. I’m a tech-loving creative and have a passion for helping small businesses thrive.

These days I’m a web and graphic designer and build sites for a wide range of companies but I’ve been where you are.

I started out in my career as a jeweller, trying to build an online business back when it just wasn’t that easy!

I made mistakes and did it all the hard way. Now I want to help you get there a whole lot quicker with the guidance and support I didn’t have.

Divi is a website page builder and very powerful in helping you create a beautiful website easily. I love Divi and in the video below I explain why I like it and why I use it in my courses.

My courses use the Divi Page Builder, it is a premium software so you will need to purchase it to get the most out of the course.

I do not purchase it for you so the licence will be in your name and owned by you. Click here to purchase Divi or just to view the Elegant Themes website.
