What can you expect from Weekend WP?

If you’ve done the prep work and have your content and design assets ready to go, you can expect to have a basic website that is ready for visitors in three days.

(Actually getting those visitors may prove harder than building a nice website for them to visit. Such is life.)

The goal here is to learn the system so you can continue to improve it, and replicate the process over and over with new designs and features for more clients.

Weekend WP teaches designers and other creatives how to craft a website built to convert visitors into customers.

This course is for creatives who want an easy but flexible blueprint for designing a site with WordPress. 

Maybe you need to be able to showcase services or a portfolio of your work. Maybe you need a web shop, or maybe you’re not quite there yet but want the option to easily expand later. WordPress has practically infinite use cases, and options for extending, which can be overwhelming even for pros. 

Weekend WP will help you navigate the options and finally build the website you’ve been planning all this time.
