D.I.Y YOUR BUSINESS – FOUNDER DEVELOPMENT
We are proud to announce our Create 2 Empower Professional Development Training, which will be run alongside a Collaborative team of Specialists to help you learn and deploy your online business.
The program will be run over 4 weeks on Wednesdays between 9 am and 3 pm where you will work alongside and be mentored by the specialist team while learning how to launch your very own website that is E-Commerce ready for you to start selling your services and physical or digital products online
You will start the training with learning how to navigate the back-end of your new WordPress stand-alone website. You will need a Domain Name and WordPress Hosting Package which you will need to purchase and install prior to the course. We recommend Pressable for WordPress hosting, and BlueHost or GoDaddy to purchase your domain name, although there are various options available.
You will learn the importance of branding and imagery to highlight your products and services, as well as to tell YOUR story, the story behind your business. You will be shown tools and techniques for taking brand and product photography to give your website a professional finish. You will also be given tools and advice on the importance of using video content to further enhance your website. We then take those images and upgrade your brand new website into a full-fledged E-Commerce website, learning how to accept online payments using PayPal and Stripe, setting up shipping etc.
