Learn to Create Your New Website in “the Cloud” in Less Time Than You Thought Possible. Expert Digital Marketing Strategist & Mentor, Jon Leland, Provides Videos, Screencast Tutorials, and More to Guide You Through the Website Design Basics That Will Help You “Kick Start” Your New Online Presence.

For whom is this course designed?

This course is designed for small business owners, marketing managers and other professionals who are frustrated and/or overwhelmed by the process of website design and production. If you think website design is complicated, can takes months and is very expensive, this course will “bust” those myths. In only nine concise segments, you will get oriented to the web browser-based software platform (Squarespace) that is very user-friendly and a great place to start. If you want your website to “go live” quickly with a minimum of fuss, then this course is for you.

Here’s what you will get when you take this course:

  • Become empowered to take action

  • Discover how to get your new website done with a minimum of stress

  • Learn from a marketing communications expert about how to approach a website project efficiently

  • Understand the difference between Do-It-Yourself, Done-for-You, and the latest technique, Done-WITH-You services

  • Get motivated by a mixture of how-to instruction and website marketing insights

What students need to know or do before starting:

Absolutely no technical expertise is required. No additional materials or software is required. It is suggested that you have a business or other kind of offer for which you would like to create a website or blog. A free trial Squarespace account is available when you are ready (however this is NOT a sales pitch for Squarespace). You may also use this course as a way to help you decide whether or not Squarespace is the right website design platform for you.
