A professional website for an entrepreneur can be expensive, cheap, and even for free. Why is that so? Why don’t you necessarily need specialized knowledge in programming or design to create a professional website for your company? This workshop will teach you everything you need to know to get a professional website from a web agency to a price that is fair and you can agree on. Maybe you even want to build one on your own and save money. This workshop will tech you how. You don’t need programming knowledge to create a great website for your company.

A professional website for an entrepreneur can be expensive. At the same time a professional website can be cheap, even for free. Why is that so? Why don’t you necessarily need specialized knowledge in programming or design to create an awesome website for your company?

This workshop is about how you can take 100% ownership of your professional website. Next time you talk to a web agency, you will tell them how they will build your website to a price that you know is fair and can agree on. Having this knowledge can save you many thousands of euros or dollars.

In this workshop you will learn why some web agencies offer very expensive professional websites while others are a lot cheaper, still costly, and what you can do to get the price down to a price that you know is fair. I will also show you how you can build your own professional website, for free. This might be important when you don’t have many customers yet and can’t do this investment.

We will talk about concepts, web agencies, and today’s technologies, how they work and what you can do to master them. This workshop is for entrepreneurs that don’t know much about websites yet but really want to master this topic.

I have split this workshop into 5 modules á 3 hours over a course of 10 weeks. 15 hours where we will learn everything that I think is important for an entrepreneur to start a professional website, and where you can ask any question.
