Charge your clients much more money by creating a WordPress website exactly to their requirements.

Create a custom responsive WordPress website for a client using the Genesis theme framework on the WordPress platform.

WordPress provides you with a fairly well-optimized web system. However, combining WordPress with the premium Genesis theme ($59.95) ensures an entirely future-proof, perfectly optimized and responsive web design with the latest CSS3 and HTML5 with Schema mark-up.

The course shows you everything – from the basics to fairly advanced HTML and CSS tweaking of the child theme.

I would advise anyone taking this course to have the Genesis theme framework although it isn’t 100% necessary.

This course is ideal for anyone wishing to create a website for themselves or other businesses – for which you could charge $3000+. I have gone through everything in great detail so there’s no need to worry if you have very little knowledge of WordPress, HTML, CSS and/or PHP.

The course would be particularly useful for people who wish to run their own web design business as you would be able to charge four-figure fees for creating a bespoke website like this.
