About the course…
As writers, we need to have a website. It doesn’t need to be complex, but it does need to exist. How do we do that with limited resources, both financial and time? Easy! Weebly. A simple, drag and drop online website builder and host that requires minimal technical knowledge to set up. And I do mean minimal. If you can fill your car with petrol, you can make a Weebly website.
This course will show you how buy our domain name, select a template (theme design) from Weebly’s extensive library and then how to structure that template to your needs. It will then show you how to add text and photos (single pics and a slideshow), how to embed an email sign up that will automatically connect to an email list builder, add social media icons for sharing and to visit your accounts, how to read Insights, and some basic SEO, such as keywords and alt tags.
At the end you will be able to create and post to the internet a fantastic Weebly website.
If you already have a Weebly website, this is a great chance to update your knowledge and make sure you’re using all the bells and whistles that you need.
What’s the evidence for this claim? I created a Weebly website in two days, with one hand (because the other was broken). It’s that straightforward. When you know how.
The course will run for four weeks in a closed Facebook group. One video will be presented each week and discussion encouraged. It will take around 4 hours in total to watch the instructional videos but beyond this, participants can spend as much or as little time as they wish to put in during the course.
While there are no prerequisites for the course it would be useful to have some idea of what you wish to create.
