WEBSITE WORKSHOP/MENTORING
ON VASHON ISLAND

 

I'm not going to lie.. putting your brand out there - sharing it with the world, letting people know what you're working on.. it is SCARY! ⠀
⠀
It's risky - being seen - you open yourself up to being judged, people not "getting it" - or finding out that people just aren't interested. ⠀
⠀
Which is so not fun.. really it's the worst thing ever. ⠀
⠀
But, to grow your business, to build something - you have to take that risk. ⠀
⠀
You have to come to terms with the fact that not everyone is going to be interested. You have to be willing to look like a fool, to make mistakes - publicly.  GASP! ⠀
⠀
You have to get some thick skin to hear the no's. ⠀
⠀
Because that's the only way to get to the yes's. ⠀
⠀
There are people out there that ARE interested in what you have to say, that want what you have to offer. ⠀
⠀
They exist.  You just have to find them. ⠀
⠀
To find them, you have to put yourself out there - you have to show up, you have to go looking. ⠀
⠀
Which is a risk. ⠀
⠀
You might fail.  But, you won't EVER win if you don't try. If you don't go for it. ⠀
⠀
My next round of Courage Camp is starting next week and this is the stuff we'll be diving into. ⠀
⠀
To give you COURAGE. ⠀
And confidence. ⠀
⠀
So you can be SEEN and appreciated and celebrated for the unique things you have to offer the world. ⠀
⠀
Being visible is the key to growing your business. ⠀
⠀
Ready to take off - to SHOW UP? To take some risks?⠀
⠀

⠀
I'd love to be a part of the next level of your business - as you grow with more power and the attention you deserve. ⠀

Hello, I'm Lisa -  a web designer and I also teach online classes about branding, wordpress design, and business building. Mostly I work virtually, with clients all over the world.

Since there are SO many of us biz owners here on Vashon, I thought that some of you might be in need of a new website or it's time for website refresh, BUT you might not have the budget to hire someone to do it for you.

I've decided to offer a website building workshop/mentorship - in person here on the island - to teach you how to build your own wordpress website - with direct guidance from me writing, planning, and organizing your content (as well as making it all look amazing).

If that is something you'd be interested in, read on to learn more...

Direct coaching and guidance at a significantly reduced rate (I usually charge $125/hour)
12 hours of in person mentoring

SOME OF THE THINGS WE'LL BE COVERING:

  • The basics of wordpress.org
  • How to build web pages from scratch
  • Customizing and using a template to save time
  • Creating compelling content
  • Designing to attract more customers
  • Writing for the internet
  • Finding and using images to tell a story
  • Connecting all the tech (newsletter, wordpress, hosting, etc.)
  • Blogging for business growth
  • Automations that simplify customer flow
  • And more!  ... depending on what YOU need

The idea here is that this is a MENTORING workshop - so I will meet you where you're at and provide guidance for whatever you need for YOUR business.

All that's required is a laptop, an idea about what you'll need for your new website, and a willingness to learn. I'll guide you through the rest.

What is NOT included in this workshop:

This is just a heads up about some of the things you'll need to provide for your new website. I can guide you on choices/options so don't worry about any of this just yet - just know to expect some additional small expenses.  🙂

  • A computer - you will need a laptop to bring with you so you can work on your site during the workshop.
  • A domain name - this is the www.yourwebsite.com which you have to purchase.  ~ $10/year
  • Website hosting - this is where all of your content lives and what makes it go live on the internet. ~ $10/month
  • A wordpress theme - there are free ones and I have a couple of premium ones that I love and 100% recommend.  Free - $200/year
  • Newsletter service  - if you'd like to collect emails on your website and send out a regular newsletter - you'll have to set up a service that can do this for you. Free - $30+/month
  • Images for your website - you may want to hire a photographer for custom branded images or you can find high quality images (paid and for free) on the internet.
  • Website copy - you'll need to write the copy for all of your pages, but you can do that as you create your site, or you can do it ahead of time.

Also important to note is that I will NOT be building your website for you. I will be showing you how, answering your questions, giving you feedback and providing my expertise.
