What is this course about?
In this course, you are going to get up and running with a landing page for your business or service using WordPress.
We are going to get a domain name, set up a hosting account, and then you are going to build the site yourself using WordPress.
Your domain name, is the www address that people type to go to your site, and our hosting, is the place where we store our sites files, and we’re going to get both of these from the A2 Hosting company.
You will need a way to make payments online (like a PayPal account, or debit/credit card). A good domain name and reliable hosting are not free, there are free alternatives but they are slow, unstable, and don’t give you any room to grow. You’ll see me go through this process step by step because I’ll actually need a domain name and hosting package for this demo.
A landing page is an integral part of your businesses online presence and so we’ll learn to build a professional, focused landing page that will make visitors become customers. Once you know how to set up and build your landing page you have the essential building blocks to go on and build further pages and develop your site, and business even further.
This course is the perfect start for a small business owner or aspiring web designer as we will begin at the VERY beginning of setting up a website and cover all the basics to get you up and running. Even better, once you complete the course I hope you will share your new amazing landing page on Digedu. Reach out to me and ask me to take a look; if you’ve done a good job I might even share your work and help drive initial traffic to your landing page and business!
