Are you struggling to be taken seriously in business
because your website isn’t modern and professional?
Do you know you have an amazing service,
but your website is turning away the clients you crave?
Are you ready to learn how to do it yourself,
but you want to know you’re starting off with an amazing website?
If you’re trying to make it as an entrepreneur in 2017, you don’t *need* a website that’s basically a glorified business card.
What you need is somewhere to sell your programs and services, position yourself as the expert you are, and regularly turn visitors into leads.
You need a website that is professionally designed for sales, while learning how to maintain it yourself.
And you may not realise this, but there is a cost to ignoring your poorly designed website, or your website that’s built on an inferior platform.
Not dealing with your website is costing you clients, opportunities, and revenue.
According to a study conducted by Adobe, 38% of website visitors will just leave if the site is badly designed.
A poorly designed website could be actively turning away people who might otherwise want to hire you.
Think for a minute what this might be costing you.
If your flagship offer is $997, and your website turns away one person every month who would otherwise work with you, you’re losing $12,000 a year.
Your website is straight up costing you $12,000 in new business every single year.
And I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be leaving $12,000 on the table every year over a problem that’s totally fixable.
Its time to make your website work for your business, not against your business.
I have over 18 years of experience building websites.
I started building websites professionally 5 years before WordPress even existed.
Back then (in the 1990s), you had to know all the code, and do it all by hand.
But luckily for entrepreneurs everywhere (and my wardrobe!), we’re no longer in the 90s!
Now anybody — yes, anybody! — can learn to build their own professional website.
And when you and I work together, you’re going to get a professional website designed for sales, while also learning how to do it all yourself so you’re empowered to take charge.
Learn how to build your own professional website step-by-step.

Here’s what you can expect to learn.
Getting Started + WordPress Basics
It’s important we’re all on the same page when it comes to websites, so we are first going to go over website basics.
What exactly is a website, anyway?
What to name your site and how to pick out a domain.
What to look for in hosting, and how to set it up.
How to install WordPress.
Once you understand WordPress, we are going to go over the basics of design theory and start planning out your design. We’re going to create a master brand guide that will keeps us on track as we start building out your pages. You’ll:
Understand the basics of colour theory and designing a colour scheme for your site.
Get clear on the importance of fonts and how to pick fonts that complement each other.
Finally know where and when to use stock photos and how to find ones that go with your brand.
Develop with Divi
Now that we have your design planned out, we are going to start building your site out using Divi, a premium theme that is flexible enough for programmers and non-programmers alike to use to get a kickass website. You’ll learn:
How to customize Divi for your own brand using the brand document we put together.
How to use the drag and drop editor to create your own custom pages.
How to import and export layouts into your pages.
Creating Your Pages
We have your site setup and designed, so now we are going to work on your pages and copywriting, and send your site live. You’ll learn:
How to design and write a kickass about page that makes people want to work with you.
Best practices for your site’s “Start Here” page based on your business model.
The importance of your menu items and how they build your brand.
Designerless DIY Lifetime Access
Designerless is my premium online course designed to teach entrepreneurs how to DIY their own websites. As an Elite client, you’ll get lifetime access to this comprehensive training.
Divi Theme Lifetime Access
The Divi Theme is what we’ll be using for this course, but unlike some trainings that make you go out and buy the required theme, I have a Divi theme and license with your name on it.
Once you’ve added WordPress website design services to your business, you’ll get an additional 30 days of email support from me to help you troubleshoot any issues that may arise.
Exclusive Page Kits
I have exclusive four Divi Page Kits for you to use for your clients so you can jumpstart your client projects.
Designerless Facebook Group
Want to ask me your web design questions? Ask away! The Designerless Facebook Group is an exclusive community of aspiring web designers who are committed, creative, and supportive.
The amount of business I realized I was missing before I hired Ysmay is not calculable with today’s math. It’s like she came in, figured out everything I wasn’t doing, and immediately started me on doing it. The difference is beyond palpable. Revenue is up, buzz is up. I couldn’t be happier.

All of my websites come with a satisfaction guarantee. We will keep working on your site until you’re happy. We work side by side until you have a design that is robust, comprehensive, and reflective of who you truly are.
More than a guarantee, this is my personal promise that I won’t leave you hanging, even if our contract together is up. We will keep working together to build you the website you — and your business — deserve.
Do I have to have a domain?
Nope! You can get started with just your laptop, internet connection, and willingness to put in some work. I’ll get you hooked up with hosting and a domain. If you already have a domain, great! We’ll go over how to make it work with your new site. I do encourage you, however, to switch to my recommended hosting so you can get the best web host on the market.
How much time will this take?
The mentorship is designed to take 30 days. Your time investment will be 2 hours per week with me on video calls, and up to 2 hours a week on homework.
Do you have a payment plan?
Yes, I offer a two payment option.
How do I know this is for me?
This is for you if you’re an entrepreneur who wants to have a professional web presence, and also want to be able to manage it yourself going forward.
This is not for you if:
- You have extensive web design experience.
- You’re impatient and don’t want to take the time to learn how to build and manage your own website.
- You’re pleased with your website, and don’t want to uplevel.
What if I don't know how to code?
Do you have a refund policy?
Since this is a mentorship and not a traditional website package, no, I do not offer a refund. I cannot control your level of commitment or any life events that may arise. I will, however, go above and beyond to make sure you’re pleased.
When is the DIY bonus course available?
Now! And you’ll have lifetime access to the course and the group so if you ever have any questions about website changes or updates, the answers are just a few clicks away.
