I promise YOU can build your website!

I’ve been where you are, a small business without the funds to have a web designer build my site.

I understand the pain points and know how to support you.

My weekend intensives mean I’m there building with you. You can either do a Zoom Intensive or in person.

You will never feel left out in the cold trying to work it all out on your own.

I can help you achieve this to boost your business in 2022!

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. 

Do you just need a bit of coaching? or maybe an audit of your website. I can work one on one with you on a Zoom coaching call. To book a coaching session click on the button below.

QUESTIONS?

illustration of question mark
do I need experience with websites?

No, my courses assumes you know nothing.

The Weekend Intensives will start with WordPress loaded up and ready to go on a staging site.

You will be taught everything you need to know. 

How does the weekend intensive work?

The weekend intensive is either  a group live Zoom webinar or an in person event.

It is two full 8 hour days and will need you to be able to concentrate on your website for the full time.

The aim is to cover building the bones of a full ecommerce shop.

You would need to come prepared to make the most of it. Full details of what you need to bring will be provided. 

For the online Zoom version you would need two screens, one to run the Zoom call (it could be a tablet though a phone might be too small to clearly see what’s going on) and the other screen (desktop computer or laptop) would be needed to work on with an internet browser open so you could work on your site live as the class progressed.

The course includes having WordPress installed on SB Academy staging site hosting. So you would be building away from any live site you currently have.

The information you need to migrate the finished site to its live home will be available in pdf format.

The course fee includes a pdf copy of Sian’s book Plan, Prep, Launch! that covers everything you need to do before you build a business website.

A discounted print copy of the book will also be available to Students.

When are the group coaching calls?

For 8 weeks starting on the first Wednesday after the course there will be a weekly Zoom coaching call.

You can either sign in and be there live to ask questions or just follow along with whatever we are covering. You do not have to attend the coaching calls. 

If you can’t make it to the live call you will be able to watch a recording from your student dashboard afterwards.

The recordings will stay available so you can go back in and watch them multiple times.

Every time the course launches there will be another set of 8 weekly calls. Students from any of my previous classes will be allowed to join future calls.

Will the course cover the legal stuff?

I will provide a pdf that covers what you need to know about cookie notices, a privacy policy and terms to stay on the legal side of the Distance Selling Regulations.

This is all guidance and doesn’t constitute legal advice.

All students get a pdf copy of Plan, Prep, Launch that also talks about the legal stuff!

Will you cover SEO?

The Weekend Intensive will include loading up an SEO plugin and a run through of the settings. 

You will get a free copy of my book Plan, Prep, Launch! that also talks about SEO.

does the course cover social media?

On the Weekend Intensive there will not be time to cover syncing to Facebook. It is also unlikely that you will get to the point of having all your products listed within the two days.

If students are interested I can cover how to sync to Facebook and Instagram on a group coaching call. 

Can I pay in instalments?

Sorry not at the moment!
