Web Design Course Manchester – Beginners wordpress – Alex Barnes

Last week I went on Hot Web Design’s 2 day web design course.  I wanted to learn how to build my own builders website.  I have just started my own business and realise that it is really important to get a website.  I wanted to make sure it was perfect and didn’t want to have to keep somebody a lot of money for web development fees.  This web design training course in Manchester city centre was perfect form me.

I had already between quoted between £2,000 and £3,000 for a new website.  This was just too much for me and to be fair they were only offering 5 and ten page websites anyway.  What was amazing with this wordpress web design course was that by the end of the 2 days my website was finished.   It really looked perfect.  For just £299 for the 2 days I now have a professional website that I can update myself.   I must say that the trainer was brilliant and a credit to the company.  Nothing was too much trouble.  In the last week they have been at the other end of the phone.  If you are looking to go on a web design course and you live in Manchester then definitely sign up to their next course.

WordPress Web Design training courses Manchester –  Steven Robb

I went on the WordPress web design course in Manchester 2 months ago and I have to say just brilliant.  I am a personal trainer.  I have wanted to sort my own website for a long time now.  My website is now finished.  I hot a lot out of their 2 day course. They have been brilliant since the course.  I was stuck on a couple of things so they met up with me in person in Manchester to give me some additional training.  They didn’t even charge me for this.  Thanks Hot Web training team.


You can read more about our 1 and 2 day training courses below –  We cover very similar things on both – We just run at a slower pace on the 2 day course.  If you are a fast learner or know the basics already then you will usually be ok just paying for the 1 day course.  If you are unsure then just give our training team a call.


 

Web Design Courses  – Manchester Overview:

Websites are increasingly the marketing tool of choice for visual artists, photographers, filmmakers, entrepreneurs and small businesses. This is because your potential customers are looking for services on Google more than any other way. Most potential clients will start with Google when they want to find or research a recommendation, and your website is likely to be the first “point of call” for these potential clients. If you are looking to make that all important right first impression, a strong online presence is the only way to do this. By designing your own website, this gives you the ideal opportunity to make sure you are found by your customers.

Who would this course suit?

This course is specifically aimed anyone who is starting their own business or is currently running the business, but doesn’t want to pay out thousands of pounds on a website they could build and develop themselves. At the end of the 2 day training, you will have a fully functioning, fully customisable website that will not only be visually appealing, instantly searchable and easy to manage, but also a site that will work on several levels – an image / catalogue that sells, a portfolio that entices, a platform to deliver news and opinion in the form of a blog

SEO – Will my website be registered with Google?

During the course we will show you how to register your website with Google. We will teach you all the basics of SEO and how to set up and manage the strategy yourself. Most marketing agencies charge around £300 – £500 per month to run SEO campaigns for you. This means you will literally save thousands of pounds every year just by attending this course. In short, if you follow the guidelines provided to you on the course, you have every chance of getting your website to the top of Google for your ideal customer to find you.
