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?
Is your website in desperate need of a makeover,
but you’re not in a position to shell out $5,000 to a web designer?
If this sounds like you, you might take the approach most entrepreneurs take when dealing with this problem: you just shove your website on the backburner of your business where it collects digital dust.
Maybe you decide to listen to all those business coaches who conveniently say you don’t actually need a website (all you need is Facebook ads and LeadPages).
Or maybe you end up on one of those DIY website builders like Wix or SquareSpace.
While this can be a fine place to start, DIY website builders are not the solution to your problem.
Sure, you end up with a website that probably looks OK, but you also get:
A site on a platform you do not own. What if they shut down? Oops! You lose your website.
A site that looks like a ton of other sites in the entrepreneur space.
A site that lacks the plugins and integrations to really allow you to leverage the power of online marketing.
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, but you do need a platform that you control.
You need somewhere to sell your programs and services, position yourself as the expert you are, and regularly turn visitors into leads.
And you may not realise this, but there is a cost to ignoring your poorly designed website.
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. A problem that’s fixable — by you — even if you don’t want to drop $5,000 on a web designer.
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 I can teach you.
For the first time ever, I’m packaging up the system I use to build high-quality, professional websites.
In my premium online course Designerless I will teach you how to take charge of your website once and for all.
Let’s face facts.
You know you need a good website. You know the cost of not having a professionally designed website could be thousands of dollars. You aren’t in a position to pay thousands of dollars for your professional site, yet you’re afraid of DIYing it yourself.
Your site will look like you did it yourself.
You’ll waste countless hours trying to figure it all out.
You’d have to learn how to code. #notcoolwithcode
Imagine if you could have a professional WordPress website for just a fraction of the cost of hiring a designer.
A website that…
attracts the people you want to attract.
converts visitors into subscribers.
positions you as an expert and makes sales.
you build and manage by yourself.
doesn’t look DIYed!
Learn how to build your own professional website step-by-step.
Designerless is for you if…
You are planning on rolling out a new product or program in 2017, and it’s far above the level of your current website.
You have big plans for building your empire but know your current website won’t help you get there.
You want to finally be recognized as the subject matter expert you are and you know a poorly designed website will hold you back.
You are a business coach but struggling to be taken seriously by prospective clients because your website is outdated.
You are tired of leaving money on the table because your website isn’t designed for conversions.
You want to be empowered to manage your site by yourself without shelling out for a designer every time you want to make a change.
Your website. Your business. Your terms.
Designerless is a comprehensive learning-and-doing course that not only teaches you how to build your own website, but walks you through getting it done as you learn.
You will be empowered to build and manage your own website, saving you the hours of frustration, and thousands of dollars that come with hiring a web designer.
You’ll finally have a site that’s set up to convert visitors into leads so you can stop chasing potential clients, and let them come to you.
Your site will act like an active member of your business, giving you a place to make sales while you sleep.
Built with video lessons and PDF downloads, you’ll get to borrow my brain, my 18 years of experience, and look over my shoulder as I teach you how to build your own professional site from the ground up.
For your one time investment you’ll get lifetime access to the complete course, all future updates, and all bonus material so you can fully step into your future as a business professional with a website that’s up to par.
Here’s what’s inside:
Module 1: Getting Started
It’s important we’re all on the same page when it comes to websites, so in the first module we’re 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.
Module 2: WordPress Basics
WordPress is kind of scary, and a lot of people get hung up on simply how to do something inside WordPress. This module is all about how to do things like:
Installing WordPress with just one click.
Adding a post or a page to your website.
Understanding and adjusting the WordPress settings.
Module 3: Develop with Divi
We’re building your site from the ground up with 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.
How to use the drag and drop editor to create your own custom pages.
How to import and export layouts into your pages.
Module 4: Design Basics
And now we’re in for the fun and creative bit! In this module we’re going to go over the basics of design theory so you can design your site like a pro. 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.
Module 5: Design Your Pages
Now that you know how to set up your site and set up Divi, we’re going to get into designing your content pages. In this module 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.
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.
Designerless Facebook Group
Want to ask me your web design questions? Ask away! The Designerless Facebook Group is the best way to get in touch with me for all your website questions as you go through this course.
It’s time to have the website your business deserves.
Designerless comes with 30 day money back guarantee. If you get through the class, implement the lessons, and you're still not totally rockin' this DIY web design thing... if you're not feeling empowered and in control of your website, just let me know.
I'm happy to walk you through where you're getting stuck. And, if you're still unhappy, I'll give you your money back (and we can still be friends).
I take all the risk. You could totally rip me off. You could sign up for Designerless, take the lessons, download the workbooks and the bonuses, download the theme, implement everything, and then demand your money back on day 29. (But I trust you won't.)
More than a guarantee, this is my personal promise that I won't leave you hanging and that you can do this. I truly believe you can build your own professional website.
