Description

If you’re on a budget but you need a website that doesn’t suck and actually helps your business / organization / cause, I’ll show you how to create one for under $1000 / year and a lot of sweat equity.

WordPress is hard. Tools for WordPress are getting better all the time, but the amount of choices for themes, plugin, hosting etc, can be overwhelming. I’ll show you what works for me based on 4 years of running a full-time WordPress developing and consulting business and you can ask me anything about WordPress, online marketing or running a business.
