Build Your Own Website with WordPress

Easy and jargon-free WordPress eCourse for Beginners Enrol in Course Today!

 Build Your Website with the help of an experienced wordpress designer

If there is one thing most startup businesses have in common, it is the lack of funds to invest in websites. You know that you need a website but the cost is a barrier that is holding you back.

This is so common and as a website designer with over 10 years experience I see this happen all the time. People want (and need) a website but after getting quotes you just can’t see how you can afford $2,500 upwards to get one designed.

So you have decided to create your own website, which is great except for one thing… you don’t know where to start exactly. Or you don’t know the things you need to account for when creating a website.

You need an affordable option, but you also want to make sure that your website is DONE RIGHT THE FIRST TIME.

Because doing a website wrong in the first place can be a costly mistake in the long run.

Our DIY WordPress course will literally guide you through the process step-by-step of building a website. And the best thing is you have an experienced website designer at your side the entire way.

From the first step of buying a domain name to setting up your website and designing it to suit your brand.

Years Experience Building Websites

Hi, I’m Nicole

Head designer here at Picasso Media. Why would you want to learn WordPress from me?

Let me tell you I was once where you are.

Back in 2008, I started up my Virtual Assistant business. I had a fantastic business concept but minimal cash to invest in a website… let’s face it I didn’t have a lot of money to invest in much in the business… let alone a website.

I knew from everything I had come across that I needed a website – I was using Twitter and Facebook but I felt that I wasn’t going to get far without a website.

I had read a lot in forums about WordPress and thought I would give it a go. With the little money I did have I purchased a domain and my website hosting and then spent hours upon hours researching how to actually install WordPress. It was a long haul but I finally worked it out.

From there I purchased a theme and designed my website. One of my current clients took note and asked me to design a website for her. As I was willing to give anything a go and she was happy for me to do it for her as a test case, I said YES!

I can honestly say it was the best decision I have ever made for my business. More clients kept asking me to do websites for them, and then referrals came off the back of that.

Fast forward to today and I have been running a hugely successful web design company for the past 10 years. I have personally built over 300 websites during this time. I invested a lot of time and effort into learning the tricks of the trade and now enjoy helping my clients build their business and getting more traffic to their website. The difference it can make to someone’s life when I help them double (or triple) their enquiry rates is so rewarding. I love that I am helping to really transform my client’s businesses.

I have made nearly every mistake in the book when it comes to business and learnt what works and what doesn’t work with websites

I can’t wait to teach you these things so that you can save time and get your website right the first time.

What People Are Saying!

A huge thank you to Nicole for her expert WordPress training! I found myself staring at the WordPress with Divi desktop with no idea of how to create my website. I’d nearly convinced myself I’d made a big mistake changing platforms but I reached out to Nicole for help. She spent an hour with me online and talked me through the WordPress desktop and Divi theme. After that hour of instruction, I had enough knowledge to create my webpage. I’m looking forward to undertaking more WordPress training with Nicole in the future!
