Building Your Website Just Got Easier!

Learn everything you need to create and design your own WordPress website.

I'll Walk You Through it Step by Step!

You know you need a website, but something's holding you back.

  • You've thought about hiring someone to build it for you but it's just not in your budget.

  • The thought of even TRYING scares the heck out of you!

  • And if you HAVE tried doing it yourself, you were left confused, overwhelmed and stressed.

  • But you want to be able to take control of your site and not have to rely on anyone else when you have to make a simple edit.

But WHY is it so overwhelming?

If you're like most people, when you want to learn something new, you turn to YouTube. Or "The Google".

And you quickly fall down the rabbit hole! And THAT'S where the confusion and overwhelm begins.

The funny rabbit is standing on its hind legs

The Problem Is You Don't Have a PLAN...

Here's the Great News!

When you have a step-by-step roadmap, building your own website can actually be easy. And even fun!

  • Imagine how you'll feel when you get your website built so you can launch that business you've been dreaming about!
  • Imagine creating a professional-looking website that feels like you and resonates with your potential customers and brings in sales.
  • Imagine knowing how to run your site on your own without feeling dependent on a designer to make a quick and simple change.
  • Imagine doing that with all the resources you need in one place in an easy-to-follow format and with “on demand” Q&A help in a private Facebook group.

resized_BASEMENT CANDIDS-8

Hi, I'm Donna. The owner of MavroCreative.

I’ve been designing beautiful, high-converting WordPress websites for the past 8 years. It’s what I do every day at MavroCreative.

While I love designing for clients, I also love to teach people how to build, edit, and maintain their own websites. Because empowering fellow entrepreneurs is really important to me.

Since not everyone has the budget (or desire) to hire a designer, I saw a need in the market for a comprehensive course that taught entrepreneurs how to build a WordPress website from start to finish.

I knew it had to be easy to follow, and give people a sense of accomplishment and control with building a website on their own. And there needed to be a place where they could ask questions and get help when they got stuck.

This is how the BYO Website Designer Course was born.

If you’re ready to finally create the website that you need for your business, jump onboard!
I’d love to have you join the fun!

terri_circle

All of my previous attempts to create a website or even a FB page for my business have ended in stalemate and complete frustration.

Donna has taught me I needed to take a step back and look at building my website in a different way. She guided me and helped bring my vision to fruition and her savvy has literally saved me hours of research and tears.

Bottom line? I wouldn’t have a website without Donna and her course!

Whether you’ve dabbled in WordPress or have never touched the platform, we cover need to know basics (that even the experienced don’t often know) so that you get started quickly and easily the right way.

Module 4

The Design

This is where the magic happens! Watch my screen as I walk you step-by-step through everything you need to know to build your website. I build a website from scratch, so work alongside me or watch the videos once and come back to do the work.

With Donna’s guidance, I made more progress in two months than I had in the previous six months on my own.

Even though this course is self-directed, Donna provides a high-touch experience in the Private Facebook page. She is quick to provide guidance or a step-by-step video tutorial if needed.

This is unlike any other course I’ve taken! I’m no longer afraid of ‘breaking’ something. No matter what your skill level is, I very highly recommend the BYO course.

I wanted to update and create a new website for my business and didn’t want to spend the $3,000 for someone else to do it.

Each module of the course has easy, step-by-step instructions as well as a great private Facebook group which Donna jumps into with amazing support. 

She knows exactly how to help if I hit a little bump in the process.

I’m now working on a second website for another business and going back through the course.

As a 60 year-old entrepreneur who has been in business for 25 years, I could easily be described as "non-techy."

After paying thousands of dollars over the years to have websites created for me, I decided to create one myself. I wanted full control over content and when changes were made. The result was a website which reflected my business exactly the way I wanted it to.  And saved me thousands of dollars in the process!

YOU'LL NEVER HAVE TO WATCH ANOTHER YOUTUBE VIDEO AGAIN

When it comes to WordPress, there’s no shortage of how-to videos online. The problem is that you need to “know what you don’t know” in order to find what you need and even then, the information is often conflicting and there’s no one to ask if you have questions.

With MavroCreative’s BYO Website Designer online course, you have a real, live website designer (me!) along with other people just like you in our private Facebook community that you can reach out to if you get stuck.

I’ve watched people who know nothing about WordPress or designing a website, create beautiful, high-converting websites from scratch using this course.

So let’s get you on your way to creating your beautiful, new WordPress site!

I can't believe that I was able to build my own website from scratch! I had always wanted to create and sell my custom sewing patterns online but didn't know how! MavroCreative’s BYO Website Designer Course walked me through, step by step, in clear detail, all that I needed to know and I did it! I'm now creating my third sewing pattern to sell and doing what I love to do!

Got Questions?! Great. We've Got Answers.

I already have a WordPress website. Is this course a good fit for me?

If you already have a WordPress website, the BYO Website Designer course is a good fit IF you are wanting to rebuild your website.

If you are wanting to work with your current theme and plugins and want to learn how to update your what you already have, this course is probably not the right one for you at this time.

Are there any additional costs associated with this course?

The only additional cost you will incur is the price of your hosting for your website. Who you choose for your hosting is entirely up to you; therefore, the price will be whatever you pay for the host you choose.

Throughout the course, I reference free plugins and themes that are used. In addition, I may make recommendations for plugins that are not free, but they are not required. The costs of those plugins are kept to a minimum and Donna has secured exclusive discounts on many of them just for BYO Website Designer members!

I've Never Tried To Build A Website Before. Will I REALLY Be Able To Do This?

Yes! Most of our members have very little, if any, experience with building a website. The course will make even a “newbie” feel comfortable and empowered. I explain all terms and concepts the way that I would if I were talking to a friend. You will never feel like you’re not geeky enough to be in this course!!

When Do I Get Access To The Course Material And The Bonuses?

Immediately! As soon as you enroll and your first payment is received, you will have access to all of the modules and lessons, including any bonuses and downloads. You can review them at your own pace at any time.

Is This Course Geared Toward People Who Have WordPress Experience Already?

No, you don’t have to have any experience with WordPress for this course. I start from the very beginning and teach the course as if I’m teaching beginners. This is great because you not only learn the basics, but you learn about more advanced features and options in an easy-to-understand way.

Whether you’re a beginner or have experience with WordPress, you’ll be able to build a beautiful and functional WordPress site using this course.

How Long Will It Take Me To Go Through The Course And Finish My Website?

It totally depends! The amount of video time adds up to about 11 hours. But the actual amount of time you spend completing your “cheat sheets” and integrating what you’ve learned varies so much from person to person. You may spend a lot more time on the planning and content development phase than someone else. Or you may have 40 pages of content to add to your site.

If I had to give an estimate, I would confidently say that within 3 weeks, start to finish, you will have a website that will give everyone else in your field website envy!

Can I Contact Donna Directly For Help If I Have Specific Questions Regarding My Website?

Donna will be available to Members within the private Facebook group to answer questions you may have as you go through the course. She is not available via private messenger, email, phone or text.

If you purchase additional coaching hours, Donna is available via email and will personally record tutorials specific to any questions that you have or areas within your site that you need help with.

What If I Don't Like The Course? Can I Get My Money Back?

If you ask anyone who knows me, they’ll tell you that I’m a people-pleaser! I WANT you to be happy and I WANT you to be successful in this course. If you don’t get the results promised in this course, which is a fully functioning WordPress website, I will gladly refund your money within 14 days of purchase.

The only catch is that you show me that you actually went through the entire course, completed the downloads and all of the steps outlined in the modules, and still didn’t have a functioning website at the end. If at that point you aren’t happy with your results, I’ll gladly issue you a refund. Please review our terms and conditions here.

Do I have to use the theme and plugins you teach in the course?

Because there are literally thousands and thousands of themes and plugins out there, it's impossible for one course to cover them all.

I've selected the theme and plugins that I use every single day at MavroCreative. They're the ones that I've worked with for years and feel confident recommending.

Can I cancel the monthly payment plan at any time?

​Monthly Payment Plan

If you elect the monthly payment plan, it is not a membership plan that allows cancellation. The payment plan of 6 monthly payments is designed is to make it more affordable for those who want to join but can't pay in full.  If you join using the monthly payment plan you are committing to six (6) payments of $97 each.

Giri

If you're looking to learn WordPress and websites, and you've a chance to learn it from Donna, be sure you just grab the opportunity.

I can't tell you how empowered I feel at the end of doing this BYO course! It's clear, it's thorough and completely demystified even for someone who has no background at all in the back-end, tech side of WordPress or websites. 

It saved me SO MUCH TIME from all the Googling and YouTubing that I had done when I first tried to build my own website.

She's really delivered an ace with this one - and I’m so pleased with myself for taking it.
