Your DIY WordPress website made easy
Have you thought about creating a WordPress website? Maybe you've tried before and ended up with a bit of a mess?
I'd like you to imagine the following scenario:
- Imagine NOT being embarrassed to share your website because it looks like someone hacked it together with scissors and glue
- Imagine not spending hours on google, tearing your hair out over how to do something “simple”
- Imagine having a clear path to follow
- Imagine having everything you need and not having to ponder things like "which is the best web hosting" or "which plugins do I need?"
- Imagine being able to make ALL the changes you want to your website, without having to pay anyone to help you
That's where I come in. With Website Weekend it's like having a nerdy sidekick (I even wear massive glasses!) who comes with you on this windy road to website completion and ultimate online bliss.
Ok, so maybe there are a few more components to bliss, but you get the picture.
The Website Weekend online course is a complete set of resources and tools. We provide you with everything you need, and everything you need to know to successfully launch your WordPress website. The program takes you through the essential steps, making sure you're properly set up, eliminating nasty surprises later on.
How does it work?
When you sign up to Website Weekend we set you up with a designed Demo Website just like this one→.
Your premium web hosting with WP Engine is price-frozen (it's a word mkay) for six months, giving you ample time to finish your website and after that you enjoy the heavily discounted price of $20AUD/month.
Also included is a WordPress theme, child theme, premium plugins and templates for all pages so you can create new pages on the fly.
Included with your hosting comes the whole StudioPress pack of themes so you are free to play around and change it up.
WP Engine provides 24/7 chat support so you are never left high and dry. I use them all the time when I have an issue! There is no reason for you to think you have to know everything.
You get a login to the online course with step by step guides to everything involved in setting up your site.
You can find support and encouragement from your fellow Weekenders in the Facebook group, and I'm answering questions weekly in the group.

I knew nothing about website building and to be honest, found it a little scary. Victoria is such a great teacher.
This course literally taught me everything I needed to know and I have created my own website, which I am so incredibly proud of! It's so easy to manage and update too. It's the best thing I have done for my business and totally out of my comfort zone. Highly recommend!
