If You are Tired of Spending Money on a Web Designer or Hate the Wait Time, It's Time to Reign in the Spending & Take Control Back
Build Your Own Website Program Can Be Done Anytime from Anywhere!
My name is Erin Blaskie and I've been helping businesses create beautiful web spaces since 2004. When WordPress hit the scene as an alternative to the traditional, stagnant, HTML-based website, my interest was piqued and I installed a fresh copy on my own web server and ported my website onto that platform.
Since 2004, my team and I have built well over 200 websites, sales pages and landing pages - all on the WordPress platform. We still design websites for people but we realized something else along the way - there are people out there who need a fabulous web space but who can't afford it. Or, there are business owners who need quicker changes made to their websites and they sit, waiting on their designer to make the appropriate changes.
If you want to learn how to create your own website or learn how to update and maintain your existing site, then this program is for you.
"When I signed up for Erin’s program, all I knew was that I was a technophobe who prayed I wouldn’t hold up the class. To my surprise, I found myself creating my very first blog on my own by Wednesday morning. That was just after two classes! It was actually me doing FTP magic — and I could scarcely believe it." - Diane F.
Introducing a Fresh and Affordable Option
for Website Design & Maintenance
Understanding How to Do Something in Your Business is Not Only Empowering, It's Smart
If you are struggling to get your business website off the ground due to lack of funds or the fear of relinquishing control to someone else, the Build Your Own Business Website program (formerly known as Blog Design Bootcamp) might just be the solution to that problem.
I am going to level with you here for a moment… when is the last time that you put out money toward something in your business and truly saw results from it? What is the last thing that you purchased that actually ended up saving you REAL dollars immediately? The answer to these questions may be: never.
A lot of businesses are going online these days as they realize that the Yellow Pages are a dying media. Consumers are no longer using offline methods to find the services and products that fit their needs — they are going online and doing business with those that have a web presence built.
Now, if you’re one of these businesses, you might be struggling with coming up with the capital to build a website or update and manage your existing one. Believe me, we’ve seen it before — a business wants to go online, doesn’t have the capital, they wait forever and next thing you know, they’ve missed out on a huge opportunity.
So, what if I were to teach you how to build your own website, get it on a successful platform and manage and maintain it for as long as you own it? What if I also told you that the platform I am going to teach you is FREE with your hosting (the stuff you pay for regardless of what kind of website you own)?
The Build Your Own Business Website program is going to teach you EXACTLY how to get your website up and running on WordPress — one of the most popular and powerful systems out there right now.
The BYOW program is a virtual-based program, which can be done from your home or office at any time of your choice. You’ll have instant access to the material whenever you need it, for as long as you need it.
During each video, you'll be able to watch my screen as I take you through everything you need to know to set up and maintain your website.
The Build Your Own Business Website is going to teach you how to:
- Install WordPress, a powerful blogging / website platform, on your hosting account
- Install a theme using WordPress
- Understand how to choose a theme (and the differences in paid/free themes)
- Install plug-ins to add extra functionality to your site (social media integration, forms, etc.)
- Customize the theme to suit your branding and logo
- Add content to your WordPress site, including pages and posts
- Install and configure Google Analytics for site tracking
- Install and configure your opt-in box for list building
The Goal of this Program is to Help You:
- Be able to set up your own business website from scratch
- To not have to rely on someone else to update and maintain your website
- To learn a valuable skill for your service-based business (should you choose to do this as a service)
- Be able to launch micro-sites and sales pages when you need them for FREE
- and so much more…
Given the skill set that you will possess after this program, you will save yourself a TON of money in your bottom line.
“I highly recommend taking Blog Design Bootcamp. I’ve taken many classes from Erin Blaskie and I’ve found them all to be top-notch. Her commitment to quality is evident from start to finish. Blog Design Bootcamp was yet another outstanding course. In fact it was unbelievable. I had my high expectations as usual, but this course far exceeded them. Delivered in an intensive 5-day webinar format, Erin covered literally the entire process of designing a blog. The class was perfect for both virtual assistants as well as for “do-it-yourself” entrepreneurs.”
“The program is amazing! I would pay 3 times the price that I paid for this program, I honestly don’t know of anything on the Internet right now that is this comprehensive right now on the subject.”
“I just wanted to thank you for the excellent training you delivered during the Blog Design Bootcamp. I am just getting started as an online entrepreneur, and have been getting prices from website designers. They want to charge at least $900 to create a website for me. After taking this training, I can not only create a blog, but I can create an entire website to support my new business. I feel completely prepared to do this for myself and prospective customers. I can’t wait to get started.”

“Hi Erin,I just want to thank you for the classes this week – they were fantastic! It’s really hard not to gush about how wonderful it really was. Someone in class was saying they have spent hours figuring things out on their own – well, me too! There is so much information out there – at times is can be overwhelming. I needed someone to set out the key elements of blog design to see if there were important elements I was missing, especially if I was going to offer this as a service. Your class definitely clarified things for me. Every minute of each class was jam-packed with valuable information which to me translates into getting value for my money. Erin, I know I’m not the first person say this but you really have an easy-breezy way of delivering your training – your classes are motivating, confidence building and such a pleasure to attend.”
