About This Course
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.
After you have finished this course you will have learned how to:
- Set up a WordPress website on a host’s server (both the manual and “one-click” methods)
- Create a custom “Under Construction” page to display during online development
- Set up the logo and top navigation menu with drop-downs
- Set up a blog on its own separate page
- Set up social media profile link widgets and understand widgets in general
- Add content and images to the website’s pages and the blog posts
- Create and style up new sidebar widgets
- Two ways of adding and editing an image slider with overlaid text
- Use CSS media queries to ensure the site displays correctly on all browsers and all possible devices (phones, iPods, iPads, tablets, laptops, etc.) – completely understand responsive design
- Create a contact page with a contact form
- Create an email subscription list and sidebar form with an incentive to join – the most important tactic of internet marketing
- Display a “favicon” for your site for the browsers’ address bars (as well as for iPod Touch, iPads and iPhones)
- Display a higher resolution logo for retina screens
- Plus much more!
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.
