Frequently Asked Questions

Will this course teach me how to use WordPress?
The course walks you through the process of installing wordpress, configuring settings, installing plugins, writing blog posts, customising the theme, uploading images and using a page builder. In these walk-throughs, you will learn these areas of WordPress, but it is a very comprehensive system and there is always more to learn!
Will the course teach me design skills?
No. BYOW is a technical course intended to show you the exact steps to get your website up and running and looking pretty good. I give some design tips and tricks along the way, but it is by no means a course about graphic design.
Why is this course being offered free of charge?

To be honest, I just got sad seeing people ask the same questions over and over again about how to get their website up and running, and watching them get overwhelmed by the varying responses and differering advice they were being offered.

I saw them become paralysed by the choices offered online , or resorting to free, sub-par versions of a website that they would out-grow within a year.

I was looking on as people were dismissing the idea of even having their own website, because they felt it was too far out of their technical comfort zone, or their budget.

But not any longer! This course is 100% free of charge, so you can get your own, professional, future-proof e-commerce website up and running.

Don’t stress over what to do, how to do it or who to do it with… I’ve got you completely covered.

Is there a money back guarantee?

Do you need one, when the product is FREE? It’s freeeeeeeee – get on it!
