with a professional web designer by your side the entire time! 

Does This Sound Like You?

  • You need a website for your business.

  • You’d love to hire a designer to build your website, but it’s just not in your budget.

  • You’ve watched tons of YouTube videos and it’s left you feeling overwhelmed and stuck.

  • You’re afraid that it’s way too TECHIE and you’ll never be able to understand it all.

  • You wish there was someone who would hold your hand and walk you through it, step by step.

Your time is super limited.

I get it. You’re building your business, running to soccer games, struggling to find time for yourself.  You can’t afford to spend days scouring WordPress tutorials or hours mining the pits of YouTube for how-to help that doesn’t give you a clear, step-by-step path.

If I showed you exactly what you need to do to build your website from beginning to end, “live” on your screen at a time that’s convenient for you, well, that’d be the bee’s knees, right?

Wouldn’t that make this massive project more manageable and less overwhelming?

Wouldn’t you love to stop pouring hours into a website design project that’s only inching forward one, slooooow, painful day at a time?

Imagine creating a WordPress website that feels like you and resonates with your potential customers without pulling your hair out, throwing your laptop against the wall, or wanting to scratch the entire project.

Now, imagine doing that with all the resources you need in one place in an easy-to-consume format and “on demand” Q&A help in a private Facebook group without the cost of hiring a designer for thousands of dollars.

And Get the Work Done

It’s Like Having a
A Website Designer At Your Desk

You become the designer as I transfer my knowledge and skills to you. If you get stuck or have a question, you can pop over into the Facebook group and hit me up.

I’ve spent thousands of dollars on my websites. With each version of, it was either too expensive or too frustrating for web designers I hired, who would eventually disappear. Then I thought, “Fine, I’ll just learn how to do it myself.”

So then I spent hundreds of dollars on a variety of WordPress courses, all of which made me feel that I was behind the class from the first day. Still, year after year, I would come up with new business ideas. But I would be stopped in my tracks because I’d immediately think, “oh, but then I have to do a web site.” So I’d go looking for chocolate instead.

Then I discovered Donna’s course, the most affordable and the most rewarding of all my adventures in creating web sites. She walks you through each step with optimism, sweetness, and clarity. And I was hooked! She made it fun!

Having an embarrassing website is like having a shabby, dirty, banged up car in the driveway. With a gleaming, beautiful web site that Donna helps you create, you can go anywhere in style. The keys are in your hand.”

– Martha Finney

So, who’s teaching this course AND who will you get your questions answered by?

Hi, I’m Donna – the founder of MavroCreative.

For the past 7 years, I’ve designed beautiful, high-converting WordPress websites for nearly every industry and niche. It’s what I do every day at MavroCreative. Our clients pay thousands (literally, $2,150 and up!) for us to design and build their website.

After building well over 100 WordPress websites for my clients, I saw a need in the market for a comprehensive course that taught entrepreneurs (who didn’t have the budget for a designer) how to build a WordPress website from start to finish. While I love designing for clients, I also love to teach people how to build, edit, and maintain their own websites.

This is how the Build Your Own Website course was born. 

Jump onboard and join our growing group of business owners who know how to DIY WordPress like a designer!

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 Build Your Own Website 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!

MavroCreative’s Build Your Own Website Course is the perfect foundation for understanding and building a beautiful, well-functioning website. Not only was I able to build a website in the process, but I understand how everything works together and how to maximize WordPress to accomplish my business and website goals. This course will be a go-to resource for me anytime I want to reinvigorate an existing website, and definitely with more websites to come!”

-Elizabeth Shaw

“I Wanted to Take This Course to Learn More About WordPress, As I Already Had Some Knowledge.”

“I wanted to take this course to learn more about using WordPress, as I already had some knowledge. The lessons were laid out so that I was able to follow along and not feel overwhelmed. They were short lessons, but full of information, interesting and well thought out. I liked how I could always go back and re-watch a lesson if I needed to. I also liked how I could follow along while working on my site and pause the videos, do some work, then keep watching. I learned so much and was excited to watch my site come alive!

I now feel confident that I could build a website from the beginning!”

-Alicia Walsh, Boston

“It Gave Me the Confidence to Tackle the Job Head On”

“MavroCreative’s course was focused, concise, and targeted. It cut through all the ‘noise’ and walked step by step through the process. From the initial modules that helped me my articulate my brand and my goals, through to the technical aspects of building my site, this course was clear and direct. It gave me the confidence to tackle the job head-on.”

-Anne Lyon

“I Can’t Believe I Built a Beautiful, Functional, and Customized Website From Scratch!”

”I cannot believe that I was able to build my own beautiful, functional, and customized website from scratch! MavroCreative’s Build Your Own Website Course walked me through, step by step, in clear detail, all that I needed to know and I did it!!

The course is broken up into manageable modules that addresses everything from the basics to trends in website design and branding. For me the best part is that Donna teaches how to plan and CUSTOMIZE a website to be just what you envision. I had tried to build my own website before using expensive preloaded themes which always came up short and were too limiting to achieve the look and function that I wanted. I will refer to this course, again and again, to change, tweak, and adjust my site to meet my goals as my business grows. I am so excited to have this resource at my fingertips!!

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

I've never tried to build a website before. Will I 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.

Do I have to have all of my photos, graphics, and media laid out before I start the course?

No, you don’t. Many people don’t know what they need or haven’t decided what they want on their website, which is why I help you over this hurdle.

I have a module dedicated to how to plan and layout your site. It includes a roadmap for how to determine the photos and graphics you’ll need and my favorite places to find them.  

I walk you from your idea of “I need to build a website for my business” all the way through to a final site, so everything you need to do and the order you need to do it in is covered in the course. 

Do you teach us how to build a mobile-friendly website that is responsive and user-friendly?

Yes, I do. You’ll learn how to assess themes and what to look for in the website theme you choose plus which mobile-friendly, FREE theme I love. I also show you how to resize your images for the web, so that your website loads quickly and provides a great experience for your end user.

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 30 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.

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 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.

Do you show us how to connect our social media profiles, such as Facebook and Instagram, to our website?

Absolutely! When we build out your website, I’ll show you how to add social media graphics to it as well as how to link your individual profiles so people can follow you.
