Have your WordPress holding page up and running in a couple of days
Who is this for?
Anyone who is starting a business, needs a holding page for their site with contact details, and a brief summary of services, but who is not yet ready to build their full website yet.
Or you could buy it as a gift for someone you know who is just starting out.
What should I expect?
A perfect combination of done-for-you and DIY
- All the tricky tech installations are done for you.
- I install WordPress
- I give you lifetime access to Divi, a premium theme (worth $89/year) and install it for you.
- I install this holding page (pictured on the right) for you
- I show you around WordPress, and teach you how to add your own images and text to your new holding page.
- You'll have access to an exclusive Facebook support group where you can post questions and receive feedback.
A fabulous WordPress holding page with your own images, colours, text and contact details.

What about when I want to build my full site?
Whilst you build your full website, your landing page acts as a curtain so no one can see your draft pages in the background.
Will there be any other expenses?
You need your own domain name and hosting plan (typically about £70/year costs) and if you don't have these already, I will show you exactly how to get them.
What bits do you do?
I do all the techy stuff, that you don't want to get involved with:
- repointing your domain name,
- installing WordPress,
- setting up a landing page template for you on your site,
- BONUS: I also install Divi, the premium theme which I use for all my clients, and give you a lifetime access to it on my agency license (which instantly saves you $89/year).
These are steps which you will never need to do again, so you don't need to understand how they're done.
What bits do I do?
You do the fun stuff!
- add your own images and text into the page
- reach out in the support group if you want to run ideas past me and the rest of the group.
Why don't you register the domain and sort out the hosting for me?
I could do that. But these are key assets in your business, and I want you to have absolute control over them. Your website can change, evolve, be revamped several times over, but your domain name and your email address should remain the same, and are sacred. You need these going forwards and no one should ever have control of those except you.
I will help you at every step of the way to make sure that you have the right assets in place and will hold your hand through the process.
How does it work?
I set up the entire website area for you and give you the log in details. You watch the videos (which you have instant access to), which gives you a step by step process to add images and text to you page.
What do I need to have ready in advance?
Nothing. You will need to register a domain name, and a hosting plan, but I give you tutorials on how to do that. If you have these set up already, you will need to have access to the log in details to manage the domain name and your hosting.
Not sure what domains and hosting are?
That's fine - I have you covered! You can go through the step-by-step walk throughs in the introduction modules here and that will help you choose and register your domain name, and purchase your hosting plan. Nothing is left out, and you literally can't go wrong. But if you do, there's always the Facebook support group as your safety net, where you can ask questions.
What if I want to build an entire site?
Then hop onto a call with me to see if the WordPress Success Bootcamp would be a good fit for you. This is my 12-week program where I support you in creating your own client-attracting website. It's so much more than about website creation. It's about empowering you to connect powerfully with your potential clients, and creating a journey from them being visitors on your site, to becoming clients.
If you have already purchased the WP Kickstart package, the price of it will be discounted from your Bootcamp payments.
