Can you ‘see’ your dream website but you just can’t quite make it happen?

If you’ve never built a website or you have a website that you just want to manage properly, our Build Your Own WordPress Website Course is for you.

IT’S TIME TO TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR WEBSITE.

ONCE AND FOR ALL.

Just because you’re creative, doesn’t mean that you should be able to whip up a website, just like that.

I mean, we all know people who have somehow pulled off a website makeover in 24 hours and it looks great.

The truth is that most creatives have a wonderful vision for how they want their website to look but they don’t have all of the skills to get the truly exceptional result they can see in their mind’s eye. Plus there’s that nagging worry that you might ‘break something’.

And if you did break something, who would you call?

My name is Melissa Love and I’ve been building websites for a long time. For the last ten years, I’ve been working with incredibly talented photographers and creatives to build beautiful brands and websites that really deliver.

My current clients include Zach & Jody Gray, Aspire Photography Training, Lisa Devlin and Brett Florens and that’s just a few.

I’ve launched this course because I believe that everyone can build their own beautiful website and look after it properly.

OUR ‘BUILD YOUR OWN WEBSITE COURSE’ IS FOR YOU IF…

  • You have a logo but you don’t have a brand
  • You hate writing about yourself
  • You want control over your domain name, email and web hosting
  • You want a website system that’s easy to use but you don’t want a restrictive template
  • You want to work on a new website without messing up your live site
  • You can ‘see’ your dream website but you just can’t quite make it happen
  • You’re tired of asking a web designer for help with little changes
  • You’re tired of having no-one to ask for help
  • You want to join a supportive community of other creatives
  • You want your website sorted out once and for all

The course includes Blanca, a flexible one-page layout for Divi or ProPhoto7

Or use one of our other stunning templates as a base

The Design Space has a wide range of beautiful, easy-to-use templates for WordPress. Our designs work with the popular themes, ProPhoto and Divi. They look fantastic on any device and can be customized infinitely.

The course will teach you how to customize our design, get the most out of your parent theme and help you develop a sound general knowledge of WordPress.

What will you learn on the course?

Whether you want to get up and running fast, or spend time really getting to grips with WordPress, the Build Your Own Website course covers everything you need to know.

The course is designed to be used with one of our Design Space templates for WordPress, which work with either the Divi or ProPhoto7.

Start with the Fast Track section and you can be up and running with a new website in a couple of hours. Dip into the Knowledgebase and unlock modules which build on your basic knowledge and help you develop more advanced skills.

I didn’t hold out much hope on finding a course that didn’t scare me but the Siteschool course was perfect. Easy-to-follow tutorials meant that I could follow in bite-sized chunks and revisit anything tricky whenever I wanted.

The course support was invaluable and put me at ease, feeling that no question was too stupid. Melissa’s wealth of experience was evident, and her insightful anecdotes and personal advice sets this course above the rest.

I hesitated for so long on building a website because of a crippling fear of code, HTML, hosting, and all the other mysterious things that baffled me. Melissa’s course made everything easy! The tools provided make creating a dynamic beautiful site possible for even the most nervous website builder. I especially loved the personal advice and questions answered in the private Masterclass Facebook group. Thank you Melissa!
