Build A Website 3 Day Course

We have worked with hundreds of small businesses over the last 10 years and recognise how daunting a website build can be. We have heard horror stories from clients about unreasonable charges, delayed delivery, poor quality of work, restricted access, bad communication and a general lack of transparency. Perhaps you've had a bad experience like this and want to take full ownership of your website, or maybe you don't have the funds to employ a professional – there is an alternative, build your own! DON'T PANIC! You really can do it :)

Our 3 day course is for beginners and walks delegates through every step of the process in developing their own Wordpress website – from the hosting set up through to 'go live'. The sessions will take place at our training centre in Inverness, easily accessible by public transport with plenty of local parking and accommodation options.

Learning topics covered:

  • Domains and hosting
  • Technical set up of a self-hosted Wordpress website
  • Planning a website build
  • Add, edit and delete pages and menu items
  • Manage text, images and videos
  • Extra functionality (plugins – maps, galleries, forms, ecommerce)
  • Website security and backups
  • Browser and device testing
  • The Go Live procedure

Delegates will at least have built the structure and populated the majority of their website over the three days, some will put it live! During the week, your project might evolve and you might decide to add features that require extra assistance. Later in the week we offer an optional 'Open Workshop', where delegates can pay a reduced fee to come to our studio to continue work on their websites and we will be available for technical support and hands on assistance as and when needed.
