Are you ready to finally create a stunning DIY website?
You want to create a website yourself but you’re worried it’s going to look like a ‘DIY’ job (when it should look like a million dollars!).
The ‘tech’ side of things might also feel daunting and you’re afraid of making that one small ‘tweak’ and breaking everything on your website with no way of going back.
Does any of that resonate with you?

“Jess has put a great course together which means that not only will you get a very professional website up and running in no time you’ll also have full control over any future amendments without having to pay for an expensive web designer. Win/win!
I’m so excited about what I have created in such a short time. Plus, having a more professional and polished website has given me so much more confidence and credibility in my business.
Thank you so much Jess, from one very proud entrepreneurial Goddess!”

What if I told you that there was a simple way to create a professional looking website that could save you time, stress and money?
I know exactly how it feels when you want to focus on your business but can’t do anything without a website first. When I was first starting out, did you know that I had actually taught myself WordPress? Even with previous web design experience, it was the most frustrating thing without having any guidance!
I felt overwhelmed.
I had big ambitions but my time ended up being wasted on Google, web forums and sending countless customer support emails. The problem was, when I would finally get an answer, I still didn’t know how to do it.
Does that sound familiar?
The DIY Website Academy is the step-by-step process that I wish I had when I was first starting out. Every module has been created to be simple, easy to follow and most importantly, is focused on you as a busy entrepreneur (none of those two hour long video tutorials!). You will be able to work at your own pace and even receive support along the way.
“Jess has been amazing, although I already had the bones to my WordPress website and the general navigational knowledge of WordPress I found this amazing course super helpful. The course provides a simple step-by-step process to not only designing and launching your site but also helps with simple (but sometimes over-looked) steps to ensuring you have a secure site.”

The DIY Website Academy was the answer to my prayers! After months of floundering with my website, I was ready to throw in the towel and pay for web design. Then I discovered The DIY Website Academy and saved myself so much money, as well as thoroughly enjoying the process of designing my website. The step-by-step videos were so easy to follow and I was guided through the whole process with ease. I can’t recommend this course highly enough. It’s been a crucial stepping-stone for my business. Not only is my business online, but I have a website that looks like it cost thousands of pounds! I have to pinch myself to believe that I created it all by myself.
Feeling grey-hearted with my website attempts at the time, I was immediately drawn to Jessica’s light, easy yet professional offering. She was 100% supportive during the program, gave feedback with an open heart and made me feel like I am the best website designer ever. My Colourful Soul is now singing, sparking and ignited!
Jess has been amazing, although I already had the bones to my WordPress website and the general navigational knowledge of WordPress i found this amazing course super helpful.

Is the DIY Website Academy right for you?
It’s important to know if this course is the right fit for you as it won’t be for everyone (and that’s ok!). Here is how you can tell:
Who the DIY Website Academy is for…
- You are a female entrepreneur wanting to create your own easy and stunning website.

- You want to become a web designer or developer.
- You want someone to do all of the work and create a website for you.
- You are not prepared to spend some time learning and building a DIY website.

- You don’t want to easily create a beautiful website for your business. : )
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):
FAQ #1: I am not a “tech” person at all, Jess! Am I really going to be able to create a website??
A: Absolutely! I designed this course to be simple so anyone could follow the step-by-step process and get success from it. Along with an introductory video for each module (so you can feel confident about the topic before you dive in), each tutorial video that follows will make you feel like you are literally looking over my shoulder as I show you exactly where to click, what to type and how it should look when you’re finished. Our past students have not had previous web design experience either and all of them had success going through the course (I should add that these were health coaches, jewelry designers, and even a baby clothes designer to name a few!).
FAQ #2: I really want to join but I’m worried that I’ll get stuck and need help. Do you offer support?
A: You bet I do! When you join the DIY Website Academy, you are going to get access to a community of absolutely incredible female entrepreneurs that are all supporting each other. In this group you can ask questions, get feedback and I will always check in to make sure your questions are answered. On top of that, we also have a direct support e-mail that you can reach us at. This way, you will never get left behind!
FAQ #3: Do you offer a payment plan?
A: Yes! You also have the option to pay in two monthly installments to make things easier for you.
FAQ #4: This feels like the right choice for me but I’m still not quite sure?
A: I am so confident that you will get success from the DIY Website Academy that I am offering a full 14 day money back guarantee. This way, you can give the DIY Website Academy a try with absolutely no pressure.
FAQ #5: I’m busy but I know that I need a good website to grow my business. Will it take me a long time to go through the course?
A: I know that you have so many things going on so I wanted to give you full access to the program as soon as you join. This way you can take things at your own pace and have it work with your schedule. Our past students have been able to finish their websites in an average of 2-3 weeks but the course itself can be completed in a week.
FAQ #6: Are there any other costs involved after I join the course?
A: This is a really great question and it depends on where you are starting from. You will need to have (or purchase) your own domain name and hosting (which I show you how to do in the course). Hosting can cost around $7/month and a domain name roughly $14/year (your first year can be free though when you follow the process I use in the course). This is standard and required for any self-hosted website.
The other costs are optional which includes choosing to purchase a premium theme (there are also free themes available but premium is recommended) as well as some premium plugins. None of this is required though and really what works best for you.
FAQ #7: I'm afraid that my site will look like a 'DIY website' and not professional. What can I do about this?
A: This is one of the most common concerns and such an important thing to consider. That is why in Module 3, we go through my 4 step process for branding and designing your website. I believe that the reason many DIY websites don’t always look ‘professional’ is the lack of planning and preparation before they dive in. Not to worry though, this is all covered in the course so you are guided through this and able to design a website that truly reflects you!
