Unlike a subscription web design service like Wix or SquareSpace, WordPress gives you the keys to your own house, which you can fully customize and evolve as your business evolves.

For others, it’s limiting and frustrating.
The most popular web design “software” on the market, WordPress has an incredible amount of online resources for continuing education and troubleshooting. We are also always available to answer questions, offer guidance and provide support in any way you need!
This 2 day schedule includes plenty of time for one-on-one questions and practice. One hour of free post-class support is also included to go over any questions that might pop up while working at home.
