LaunchParty completely blew me away. It was much more than a tutorial. It guided me step-by-step to success. The resulting website looks amazing and I learned a ton of tips & tricks on the way. The template blocks are versatile and make building a website as fun as playing with LEGOs. The course itself is well thought out, with videos, transcripts and motivating badges. Oh, and it's free. Wait, what? Yup. Mind blown. LaunchParty rocks!

These tutorials are excellent. It's by far the clearest, most comprehensive and easiest course I've seen for startups to get things moving. Highly recommend for both new business owners and experienced entrepreneurs looking for a quick and easy way to set up a website without paying anything at all to gain this knowledge! The step-by-step video tutorials are very straightforward and use the best tools available in the industry to ensure that your business gets off to the best possible start. The FAQs also help to clear things up. You could pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars for someone to set this stuff up for you – which would take months - or you could watch these videos for free and achieve a better result in just 3 days. The choice is pretty clear.

The moment I discovered LaunchParty I knew it was something special. As a student I feel like the team has done everything they can to set me up for success in the course and in the wild. The structure is well thought out and delivered in a way that is easy to follow for any learning preference. The value of this course exceeds any paid course I have taken. I'm blown away this is offered for free. Thank you for creating a truly phenomenal course. Five enthusiastic gold stars!

LaunchParty has been an essential resource for me as I built my business. I always thought building websites required a lot of time and knowing how to code. LaunchParty smashed these preconceptions and allowed me to build my website for my business in record time. LaunchParty's videos are easy to follow and information is presented in a logical order, without over-explaining the steps. I highly recommend LaunchParty to anyone looking to build a website.

LaunchParty is untouchable. The learning platform and badges, the on-site customizations, the walkthroughs and thoughtful detail for interacting with Elementor itself. It's all very well laid out and goes super deep somehow right when you need it.

These are 'must-watch' tutorials. As soon as I found LaunchParty, learning Elementor become fun. Matthew uses simple language to explain complicated procedures in a straightforward way. He introduces important advice that you would never even think about. He has a great gift and I admire his abilities.
Petr V.
You guys are awesome! The LaunchParty tutorials & resources have made building my new website so easy (previously I was spending hours tyring to figure these things out). I've been making websites with WordPress for awhile, but being self-taught & not not knowing any coding - I've had holes in my approach. The LaunchParty tutorials have been amazing - the step-by-step method - and small bite-sized video tutorials on every step has given me a more systematic way to approach things. And Elementor is so easy to use, I now only need Elementor Pro to do everything I need! I've saved so much time & effort!

LaunchParty is INCREDIBLE! I have built websites on many other platforms, but it's never felt easier, and I've never felt more in control. Each step is clearly explained, and I had a beautiful website up before I could believe it. I feel empowered to make changes and put my vision directly on my website. Huge thanks to LaunchParty for helping me build a website that impresses people everyday.

I LOVE this course. With LaunchParty, I've learned how to launch my designs on my own — literally in a day. After trying various courses and tutorials, I was thrilled to find a course that demonstrated a clean workflow and explained everything step by step from install to site launch. Also, the free template library is amazing!

You are a lifesaver. This course is very concise, well organized, and served me well. It is packed with the most 'impacting' stuff that really made a difference. Plus it's free! Such a valuable resource can't be found in any corner of the web. Keep up the good work.

After completing the LaunchParty tutorials, I am now building websites three times faster. With the personalized templates available, I can now finish a website in a day. This is an excellent resource for anyone, beginner or advanced, who is looking to create a new website or become faster at doing so. And best of all, it is free!
