“Vicky has been the most fabulous WordPress coach and has guided and supported me through every step of the WordPress Happy programme. Not only does Vicky have an in depth knowledge of WordPress she is also incredibly helpful and it felt like she was as excited about my progress as I was. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to work with and I’d absolutely recommend her to anyone who is a novice and looking for some marketing or website support, or who would like to learn how to build their own website.
Not only have I ended up with a new skill and an amazing new website, I’ve also had the hands on support of an expert along the way.”Alana Curzon
Why it took me so long to build my first site
When I left the world of corporate marketing, my first role was as Marketing Director of a conservation organisation in California.
We had a website, but didn’t have the budget to pay for updates, so I started to learn how to make changes myself. It was 2002 – the world of the internet was new and exciting, but my only learning resources were bulky and slightly terrifying books of code.
When I returned to the UK, I discovered a real drive in small businesses needing strategies to gain results from their websites.
And so, in 2003, my digital marketing agency was born.
But I was overwhelmed with the set up. The hosting, the domain names, which tools to use, what to invest in, what to steer clear of, and much much more. The mistakes I made were monumental, time-consuming and expensive. I spent many nights scouring through books and webpages for answers to undo the knots that I tied myself in day after day. And I became hungry to learn.
Now I help small business owners with all aspects of their online technology, from websites and landing pages, to email marketing and client attraction. It’s what I love to do, because I realise how crippling technology overwhelm can be, and in my 14 years of being an internet marketer, the experience I have gained from my own mistakes, is invaluable to help guide other entrepreneurs through the minefield of potential pitfalls.
Most of all, I love to see people succeed online. The opportunities to extend our global reach have never been so tangible as they are right now. Enabling small business owners to build communities and realise their potential beyond their local boundaries is a wonderful privilege.
Imagine for a moment…
That you have 14 years of marketing and website experience behind you to make sure you work this out
That you can see the finished product of a website that you love and are totally confident in updating
That technology no longer becomes a barrier to you sharing your services with the world
That your website attracts your ideal clients and helps you grow your business
What you will learn in the next 12 weeks
- HOW TO IDENTIFY YOUR AUDIENCE. This is the cornerstone of all things marketing and a crucial element which so many people overlook. This module will set you up for creating a website which attracts all the clients you need.
- DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION AND HOSTING. Not only where and how to register your domain name and host it, but we’ll talk about considerations to take into account for your domain name if you don’t have one yet. We can even brainstorm ideas together to help you choose one which will work best for you.
- FONTS, COLOURS AND IMAGERY. Very few of us are trained graphic designers. Many people have an idea of what they like, but don’t feel able to create something themselves. We’ll talk about some of the crucial aspects of the visual components of your site to make sure that you have something you are proud of sending people to visit.
- WORDPRESS AND THEMES. You’ll learn about themes, what they are, how to install them and how to switch between them. To take away the overwhelm of theme choices, you’ll be introduced to the theme that I now use exclusively on my websites, and how you can customise it to your needs with an easy-to-use editor.
- CONTENT. Understanding what pages to include, how to structure your content and how to craft your messaging is critical to a successful website. You’ll learn all of this and more.
- PLUGINS. What you need and what you don’t need.
- MAINTENANCE. Keeping your website in good shape.
- CREATION. And of course, you’ll learn how to pull it all together into web pages which are going to deliver real business results for you.
“Using a weekly tutorial video meant I could watch it as many times as I needed to and at the times most convenient to me and having the weekly telephone consultation provided the deadline I needed to prioritise the tasks into my work schedule each week.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to experience the great sense of achievement that I now feel.“Shelley Williamson
Here’s how it works
This is not a self study course. It includes one-on-one sessions to keep you on track. This is a 12-week workshop with a real outcome at the end of it.
You will have one-on-one help from me each week to help you implement the techniques you are learning.
- A video tutorial is delivered to you every week for 8 weeks.
- At the end of each tutorial, you will be given assignments to implement on your own website project.
- You will be offered the chance to register for 8 x 30 minute calls with me throughout the program.
- On that call, we discuss the tutorials and your assignment together.
- You should plan to set aside 6-10 hours each week to go through the video tutorials, the assignments and our call.
The one-on-one call will enable us to:
- Go through your assignment together.
- Identify any areas where you have struggled.
- Brainstorm ideas.
- Set a plan for your next steps if you haven’t finished the assignment.
The additional 4 weeks are to give you support during weeks where you may be catching up or needing extra time to create content.
By the end of the twelfth week, you will have a fully functioning website live on your domain name.
If you want to work through the program faster, speak to me about having full access to all the tutorials from the outset so you can work at a swifter pace.
