Thank you for your interest in “How to Easily Build a Great, Money Making Website.” If you’re on the fence about this NCBTMB approved course (Provider #1380), then just know that building a website is really a matter of allowing your creative side to flourish!

When You Register For This Course, How Long Do Your Have Access to It?
Are There Any Guarantees?
Yes! Written cancellations (email is OK) made within the first 24 hours of registration will receive a full, 100% refund!
You bet! You’re going to also get a whole bunch of free tools that will help make all this website stuff easier and faster. These free “Smart Tools” can save you major dollars because with this course, you’re being provided the “inside scoop” known in the industry that the general population isn’t aware of. Nice, huh?
There is enough practical, hands-on training in this continuing education course, written in layman’s terms, for you to be able to start with nothing and end with a fully functioning website focused on your knowledge and your area of expertise. If you already have a website, then this training will teach you what to do and how to do it so your site works FOR you.
Literally … from beginner to pro!
This course is designed to provide you with a one-stop, step-by-step, click-by-click instructional training on creating your phenomenal website or improving your current site. It works with the exact same foundation used by multi-million dollar companies (such as CNN™, Firefox™, Sony™, Samsung™, Ford™, and EBay™) while providing you access to numerous free tools and products.
To think … with this course, you have everything you need to build or improve your website for free. This can help you gain a competitive advantage and help you keep thousands of dollars in your pocket (because paying a Web Master to build a professional website can cost thousands).
Once you register, you’ll need to spend some time understanding the “back office” of your website. Referred to as the “dashboard,” anything you will ever do with your website will be handled by you (or someone you assign) from your dashboard. It’s amazingly easy to work in your dashboard. As a matter of fact, if you can work an iPhone® or have an understanding of Word®, then you will be very pleased with just how easy your dashboard will be for you.
In this course, you will be introduced to the world of website design without all the “geek speak ” and “tech teach.” Everything is provided in laymen terms and you can go at your own pace.
