TL;DR: Make use of your free time with the Build Your Own Business Bundle for $39.99, a 98% savings as of April 1.
Got too much time on your hands? Rather than watching another six hours of Netflix, maybe it’s time you actually do something productive — like build your own business. And before you laugh in our face and go back to devouring the latest season of Ozark, hear us out. You’ll be surprised what you can do, make, and sell with stuff you already have in your home with a little help from the world wide web.
Now, when you sit down to create a website for your potential new business, you might be overwhelmed by the options. There are tons of dedicated e-commerce platforms out there that can take care of everything for you (i.e., Shopify, Squarespace) with simple drag and drop interfaces. But if you want to explore your own creativity and create something you actually really love from scratch (it’s not like any of us are short on time), WordPress and WooCommerce are the way to go. And this Build Your Own Business Bundle can show you the ropes.
If you’re not familiar with WordPress, it’s by far the most popular way to make a website, while WooCommerce is a popular plugin for WordPress that lets you build an e-commerce store on your existing blog or site. It’s free to use and functions well on its own, but also has a ton of premium extensions that require some training in order to truly make the most of them. This bundle covers the foundations of WordPress, starting with hosting, themes, and plugins, then dives deep into making your WordPress site profitable with the WooCommerce plugin.
Led by best-selling instructors and creators like James Stafford of WebsitesMadeEasy, Sorin Constantin, and Marc Beneteau of WP Academy, this 16-hour crash course covers setting up payment gateways and marketing products with WooCommerce, optimizing your WordPress site using SEO plugins, writing better SEO-friendly content, and properly researching the right keywords. You’ll even gain access to Divi Layout packs, themes, and plugins within the courses, which student Erol Ozvatan says “saves a lot of time and money.”
