Build a WordPress Website by Lauren Holliday

Build a WordPress Website

Learn how to build premium WordPress websites and get paid for it.

Overview

Seven years ago, I began building WordPress websites for small businesses (Most recently, I made one for Flo Rida), and now, I teach people how to make WordPress websites and then market them.

I think everyone who wants to work online should learn how to build a website because it teaches you how to do a lot of different things, which in turn allows you to test a lot of different skills in real life.

Not to mention, nearly half of small businesses do not have a website, which means the market is there for people who want to make money building sites.

“It’s cheap. It’s easy to do. And it can take less than 20 minutes to set up. Yet more than half of all small businesses still don’t have a website.” — Inc article

Perhaps you’ve thought about making your own website. Or maybe you thought about building websites for a living, but you’re just so not into coding.

You’ve probably heard of WordPress. Maybe you’ve researched it only to feel overwhelmed and unable to pull the trigger on learning more.

Well, in the words of the All American Rejects, it ends tonight, because in this course, you'll learn step-by-step how to build BEAUTIFUL WordPress websites with a premium WordPress theme.
