Build Abundance with WordPress

Learn the skills, strategies & tools you need to build a thriving web design business in just 6 weeks.

Ready to set yourself apart from the sea of graphic designers but have no idea where to start?

I get it, websites can be totally overwhelming

Whether you've designed & built a website before or it's been on your learn-how-to-do list for longer than you'd like to admit

There’s so much to learn, where do you even start?

Do you even have what it takes to design and build a website that converts?

Will a client ever trust you to create one for them anyway?

Will I just look like a fraud against my creative peers?

So you're constantly...

Following the same design trends as your creative peers, resulting in your brand blending in.

Getting caught up in your fear of failure so you don’t take action.

Stuck in the mindset that web design is all code and tech and not something you can do.

Avoiding investing in your business and allowing limiting beliefs hold you back.

But it doesn't have to be that way

Imagine how it would feel to...

Make more money working with your existing clients rather than having to hustle for new clients all of the time

Take your clients through a high-end design experience, from branding to launching a 'wow-worthy' online presence

Be able to design and build custom WordPress websites without the overwhelm, self-doubt, and tech nightmares

Let me know if this sounds familiar...

If you answered 'yes' to any of the above, keep reading

You know things need to change...

You're sick of
feeling left behind

You know hustle
mode isn't sustainable

You're over the
feast and famine cycles

MEET YOUR MENTOR

Hey there, I'm Kate.

I’m a self-taught WordPress web designer & developer, despite having a digital design degree.

Why? Because the modern-day platforms and technology simply did not exist when I was still in university. In fact, I used to hate web design because it was all tech and no fun and I was adamant I would never pursue a career in it.

Fast-forward to today and I run a 6-figure design business with over 90% of my revenue coming from website projects. I’ve gone from charging under $5K to over $21K for projects simply because of the outcomes and high-end design experience I create for my clients.

With web design, I saw an opportunity to not only satisfy the creative and strategic sides of my brain but to create a unique point-of-difference against the vast sea of other graphic designers.

And the best part? It’s a fun process that nurtures creativity because the tools and technology are now built for designers through a visual experience.

INTRODUCING

Build Abundance with WordPress

A 6-week online course that will empower you to confidently design, build, and launch custom WordPress websites so you can up-level your skillset and create abundance and freedom in your life without the overwhelm, self-doubt, or tech nightmares.

We kick off on 6 September 2021!

How is this different to other website courses?

Build Abundance with WordPress is based on a wholistic approach to web design and development.

I teach you everything you need to know, and nothing you don't so that you're launching your first custom WordPress website by the time we finish on October 14th.

Yep — write "tick off a major goal" in your diary!

HEART-WARMING RESULTS

Imagine receiving client feedback like this...

I was looking for someone who could not only complete the work but act as a support and consultant-like figure. After our first conversation, I knew Kate was the right fit.

The experience was wonderful from start to finish. Kate has streamlined a very detailed process (web development) into an easy-to-understand and follow set of processes. Her expertise and care shone throughout the project. 

I also loved the efficient and clear communication allowing us to move succinctly through the timeline. The final product is exactly what I envisioned, thank you for bringing it to life. 

I am incredibly proud of my new website and all the creative content being generated. I am the brand so everything produced has to be a clear and honest representation of me and I believe that is the case. I couldn’t be happier and look forward to watching it grow.

Have Questions?

Frequently Asked Questions

The short and sweet: it’s the most powerful and adaptive web development suite that enables complete design and customisation freedom that can expand and grow as your business does.

WordPress is open-sourced, meaning it has the flexibility and potential to integrate pretty much any functionality you can can think of. You’re not going to hit a ceiling if you want to integrate an online shop, a membership hub, or to have full control over your SEO.

More importantly, visual builders are a designer’s best friend. They’re extremely user-friendly and allow you to design and build through a visual drag-and-drop experience. Your future clients will also be able to easily manage and update content themselves.

Build Abundance with WordPress is based on the exact creative process that I use to design and build exceptional websites for my clients that convert—and the process that has enabled me to build abundance and creative freedom within my own brand.

Based on the traditional web design and development fundamentals that I learned in my degree, fine-tuned to suit the modern-day technology and tools, Build Abundance with WordPress will teach you the systems and structure to building a solid website foundation with infinite creative flexibility, that is designed to grow and scale with your business.

It’s our creative processes that make us unique and I know mine is solid and refined.

Build Abundance with WordPress will show you how to confidently design, build, and launch a custom website using a step-by-step creative process without the overwhelm, self-doubt, coding, and tech stress. 

Website tools and technology have evolved so much over the years that they’re now designed to be intuitive and user-friendly. If you can use social media platforms, you can certainly learn how to build a website.

Plus, a lot of the design tools and programs used to create websites are the exact ones that you would already be familiar with. (I.e. Adobe Creative Suite.)

At the basic starting point of setting up and building your site, costs will include just your domain name and hosting, as well as visual builder fees if you opt for the pro version.

Hosting fees – Your hosting costs can be set up as either monthly or annual payments. Fees start at around $8/month.

Domain name fee – There are a number of inexpensive options with easy-to-use dashboards for domain management. Prices generally start at $9/year.

Visual builder – Depending on which visual builder you opt for, these can range from $0 to $89/year. This course will focus on Elementor but will also offer development recommendations for Divi.

Theme – The beauty of using a visual builder is that it does a lot of the heavy lifting for you and is where you’ll make the majority of your customisations. The theme simply acts as a foundation for the website structure. I will recommend themes within the course and most have both free and pro versions.

Plugins – Free and Premium plugins are an option if you are looking for more flexible customisations within your site. I will recommend essential and nice-to-have plugins inside the course so you’re not overwhelmed by the choices.

Yes, there are two payment options available.

A one-time payment of $1200 AUD (saving you $240)

and

6 x weekly payments of $240 AUD

To purchase, simply click on your preferred payment option and you will be taken to the Checkout page directly within the website for a secure and encrypted credit card payment.

I get it. Wearing all of the hats in your business, or trying to find your feet as a freelancer can be tricky and time-consuming. But are you busy being productive and making moves towards your goals, or are you busy just being busy?

Build Abundance with WordPress will teach you how to work smarter, not harder by learning a complimentary skill that will enable you to double the amount of money you can make from your existing clients.

By saying ‘yes’ to growth now, you are setting yourself up for creating abundance, creative freedom, and flexibility in your life and work in just 6 weeks’ time.

The weekly live Q&A calls will be recorded and added to the portal for you to revisit at your own pace.

You will also have the ability to submit your questions prior to the Q&A calls to ensure you’re getting the support and guidance you need to design, build, and launch successfully.

I’m guessing if you’re reading this you’ve seen my work in some capacity and were attracted to my aesthetic or messaging.

To remove the risk Build Abundance with WordPress comes with a 14-day money-back happiness guarantee.

If you don’t feel like Build Abundance with WordPress is giving you the knowledge and support you need to design, build, and launch your first custom website, simply email me at support@buildabundancewithwp.com by September 20, and I’ll give you a refund on your investment.

The only thing you have to do is watch the recordings of the lessons and show me that you’ve done the homework.

This is a mindset block that a lot of creatives often get caught up on.

A degree or formal qualification is no longer the foundation of a successful design career. Do you know what is? Passion, skill, and doing the work.

Design is learned skill, not an innate one, so if your creative peers can do it then so can you!

Since this is the first time I am offering this course, I want you to feel supported and guided each step of the way.

The lessons and modules are pre-recorded and will be released week-by-week to ensure that you are setting up your website on a solid foundation based on my proven signature creative process. 

As a founding member, you will have the opportunity to shape the course to your specific needs.

No, you don’t have to be a graphic designer to complete this course. 

Build Abundance with WordPress is suitable for anyone looking to elevate their role—such as brand designers, graphic designers, VA’s, multi-passionate creatives, photographers, female entrepreneurs, proactive learners, and small business owners—who are wanting to up-level their creative skills and fast-track their web design experience for job flexibility, increased income, and creative purpose.

Having some basic design skills and knowledge of design programs is an advantage though, as I don’t go into detail on these.

Build Abundance with WordPress is jam-packed with the strategies, processes, and tools that I’ve built my successful digital design studio with.

I am a big believer in community over competition and empowering other women to create a lifestyle that works for them so I am literally revealing it all.

Your investment in yourself and your business will be more than covered by your first web client alone… from there it’s all profits and no stopping you!

No questions, I'm ready for this!

The way I see it

You have three options

Do nothing

And keep having to constantly hustle and compete for new clients to try and reach your monthly financial goals

Do it yourself

And waste months of your precious time piecing together random YouTube videos and being frustrated with trial-and-error

Follow a proven process

That shows you step-by-step exactly what you need to do to design, build, and launch websites without self-doubt and overwhelm
