Create. Launch. & Flourish

Create and launch your own website for your handmade business.

Building your own website doesn't have to involve countless hours of research, sifting through outdated YouTube tutorials,
or trial & error!


Wouldn't it be nice to...

  • Have a 24/7 customer & sales generation machine
  • Earn more profits and pay less Etsy listing and transaction fees
  • Spend less time hauling tables, tents, and totes to craft shows and more time packing shipments in you pajamas
  • Hit the “Publish” button with confidence
  • Feel the weight of your website lift off your shoulders

But right now you're feeling a bit lost and overwhelmed by all the systems, tech, and options everyone is telling you about?

Does this sound familiar?

You’re selling your handmade goods at a show or market and you meet someone who is really interested in what you’ve made, but they’re not ready to buy. You’re handling 25 things at one time and this lady is asking questions about your products. Then she asks, “Do you have a website where I can find more info?” And your heart drops, ...again.

Or maybe you just met someone at a networking event or party. When they ask what you do, you excitedly explain the side business you’re building (you might not mention that you hope to quit your day job). They ask about your website and you sheepishly reply, “I’m still working on it.”

Of course building your website has been on your to-do list for a while but keeps getting pushed to the back burner.

You feel like you’re missing out on potential sales.
Your products are awesome and people want what you've got, - but you’re not available 24/7 to make the sale.

You’ve already tried to...

  • Research the best platform to create a website. You’ve looked over pricing tables and mile-long feature lists that look like a foreign language
  • DIY it based on free resources and YouTube videos, but the info you found seems outdated or difficult to follow.
  • Hire a professional, but there’s simply no room in your start up budget for a $2,000+ website

But let’s face it… You’re not moving forward as fast as you want.

THAT’S OK. You’re in the right place now.
Seriously! No one is born knowing how to build a website, right?

I can teach you a new skill that will empower you and your business. Knowing how to build and update your own website will save you thousands over the life of your business. Not to mention, by building your website with WordPress, you'll have lower monthly recurring costs compared to other builders!

I'll help you overcome your tech overwhelm when it comes to creating a website for your handmade business. You can create your own website without hiring a designer or throwing a tech tantrum.

is the practical step-by-step course that shows handmade product sellers exactly
how to create and launch their own website
to stand out in a crowded marketplace.

You’re a maker. You create beautiful ceramics or you’re a needlepoint ninja. You’ve been selling on Etsy but you’re ready to grow and create your own website. You want to make more profit and you feel like you’re flushing dimes down the toilet with all the Etsy listing and transaction fees.

You’re a small business owner. You wear all the hats and you’re bootstrappin’ your business. You don’t have the budget to hire a web designer and developers to get your business online but you have the hustle and drive to DIY your website.


And...

You're willing to put in the work. You know it's going to be worth it so you're ready to put in the investment.A balanced investment of time and money is most advantageous for you right now.

You don't want to waste any time. You don't have time to dilly dally researching, trial and error, trying to put the pieces together. You want some support and guidance throughout the process.

You are somewhat tech savvy. You don't need to learn HTML or CSS coding to succeed in this course. But you are willing and able to learn new software systems. You know there is going to be a learning curve, but you're excited to shorten it by taking this course.

You already know that you want to build your website with WordPress and that it is the best option for YOUR business.

“Rebecca communicated enough info in the course that I feel like I can finish and manage my website and I now know enough not to be taken advantage of if I have someone else manage it. That was extremely valuable to me.”
