About Our Course
Our full course (including our exclusive templates) is absolutely free. Our goal is to provide free educational resources to entrepreneurs, small businesses, and students from all over the world.
Created For Beginners
We simplify WordPress in a way that anyone can understand. Our step-by-step video tutorials were created specifically for non-coders, non-designers, and absolute beginners who feel overwhelmed by the thought of making a professional website.
No Coding, No Confusing Terminology
We teach how to build websites visually. This means we won't be using any coding and we won't be confusing you with hard-to-understand terminology.
Progress Tracking For Every Single Step
Our step-by-step progress tracking will help you visualize the exact steps needed to create and launch your own website. No need to worry about forgetting any important steps or feeling overwhelmed.
Complete Control Over Your Design
You will be using the Elementor page builder to create your entire website. Elementor will allow you to customize every aspect of your website using their visual drag-n-drop editor. You will be able to easily add your own content, move things around, change colors, add animations, adjust padding, choose different fonts, and more.
You will quickly discover why Elementor powers more than one million websites and has instantly become the most talked about page builder for WordPress.
Professional Elementor Templates
We created our very own collection of professional Elementor templates exclusively for this course! All our templates are completely customizable using Elementor. This means you won't need any design experience and you never have to start with a blank page.
How Much It Costs To Build A Website
A domain name is required for all websites. We recommend using Namecheap to purchase your domain name and will walk you through the entire process. A domain name (with privacy protection) costs around $11 per year.
A hosting account is required for all WordPress websites. We recommend using SiteGround Hosting and will walk you through the entire process. SiteGround hosting costs around $4 per month.
While the basic version of Elementor is free, many of our tutorials will require the Elementor Pro add-on. Elementor Pro costs $49 (one-time fee) and includes one year of support and updates. If you want to continue to receive support and updates after the first year (optional), the cost is $37 per year (25% off of $49). The advantages of using Elementor Pro far outweigh the cost.
The combination of SiteGround + Elementor Pro is one of the most affordable ways to build a website. The total cost per month will be less than other website builders (such as Squarespace).
How We Make Money
Our website is supported by those who purchase SiteGround Hosting and Elementor Pro through the links on our website. The small affiliate commission we receive from these companies is what allows us to keep our tutorials completely free.
