CAN I COME IF I WANT A SQUARESPACE SITE?

You can come, we won’t discriminate – but you won’t get a website by the end of the day with Squarespace, Wix, Weebly or any other platform than WordPress. And that’s WordPress.org, not WordPress.com

 

I HAVE A WORDPRESS.COM SITE – WILL THIS THEME WORK?

Unfortunately, no. You must have a self-hosted WordPress website. We will guide you through domain + hosting purchasing but you must purchase this separately, and have it ready before the course start so we’ll be able to install and customize with ease.

 

WHO IS THIS FOR?

Health & lifestyle entrepreneurs, small business owners and bloggers who want to raise their impact and income, but don’t have the big budget for a custom website yet. More established in business, but want to take back control of your website instead of waiting on designers and developers? This is meant for you, too!

 

WHY CUSTOM WORDPRESS THEMES?

Using the WordPress framework, we can offer you flexible customizations with simple usability. The learning curve isn’t steep and you can manage your own updates with ZERO coding knowledge. Plus, we can update our themes on our end and provide you with the updated version without charging you additional support fees like bigger template marketplaces do.

 

I ALREADY HAVE A LOGO AND BRAND, I JUST NEED A WEBSITE, IS THIS STILL FOR ME?

Yes, you can still participate in the Website In A Day with your logo and branding. We’ll be guiding you on how to upload and install your logos so you’d be using the one you’ve created instead of one chosen from our library.

 

DO I GET LIFETIME ACCESS TO MY THEME AND UPDATES?

Of course! It’s yours to customize and tweak for as long as you want. If we make any theme updates, you also have lifetime access to them and will receive notification through our mailing list.

 

WHAT CAN I CUSTOMIZE IN MY THEME?

Logos, fonts, colours, images, sidebars, sliders, almost anything! The only thing you can’t customize is the actual layout of the homepage template, so make sure you love it and it fits your business needs before you commit to it. If you change your mind, you can select a different style from the theme’s main customize page (which we’ll be showing you how to do)!

 

WHAT TOOLS OR SOFTWARE DO I NEED TO LAUNCH MY SITE?

Just your computer, an internet connection, and WordPress. You’ll also need to setup your domain and hosting, but don’t worry – because I walk you through it, one step at a time!

If you want to customize our pre-made logos, you’ll need Illustrator. You can sign up for a free 30 day trial. If you want to start building your mailing list, you’ll also learn how to integrate an email provider like Mailchimp to create opt-ins on your website. But again, this is optional.

 

DO I NEED TO BE TECH SAVVY OR HAVE DESIGN SKILLS TO PULL THIS OFF?

Nope! Our themes are totally beginner-friendly, no coding required.

 

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR THE DAY?

On March 22nd everyone will get access to the “pre-work” that will help you get supported and start prepping for the day but as soon as you purchase your ticket, you’ll start receiving weekly emails about content, and logo prep and brand choices to get your mind grooving.

If you’re an early-bird ticket purchaser (before March 8th) WE put together your logo for you, you just have to choose which one, and what exactly you want on your chosen logo.

You don’t HAVE to choose one of our logos, we’re extending it in case you don’t have branding you love. We will also create a personalized mood board for early-bird ticket holders that is created based on your business type (which we find out about in our questionnaire you fill out after purchasing your ticket!)
