DO I NEED A LAPTOP?
You will need your laptop computer. You cannot design your website on a tablet or smart phone. If you do not have access to a laptop, let me know ASAP as I might be able to make accommodations for you. FYI: Your website won't "live" on the laptop or computer you use for creating your website. It "lives" with Wix where you can access your site at any time, and on any computer.
WHY ARE WE USING WIX?
I have tried many of the website software, including Wordpress, Weebly and Squarespace. I think that Wix is the easiest and most flexible! Their templates are beautiful and completely customizable, and you can add more complex features as you grow and change your business endeavors. The cost is competitive and they offer free version up to premium models (for e-commerce). Also, Wix handles all the web digital housekeeping so you don't have to worry about backing up your site or it breaking with every upgrade.
DO I HAVE TO KNOW HTML CODE?
Nope! If you are creating a basic website (even with a blog or online shop in it) you will not need to know code.
DO I HAVE TO HAVE A WEBSITE NAME OR URL?
Nope! You can create and work on a website with Wix whether you have a URL (web address with a name you create) or not. When you're ready, you can purchase a URL through Wix, or you can purchase a URL from another site such as GoDaddy or BluHost and transfer that name to your designed site.
CAN I JUST MAKE A BLOG INSTEAD OF A WEBSITE?
Yes! Your Wix website can be just a blog, or it can have multiple "pages" or sections for information you would like to include.
CAN I JUST MAKE A SIMPLE ONE PAGE WITH CONTACT INFO?
Yes! That's a great place to start. You will still find it extremely helpful to walk through this process with this workshop. When you decide to add pages later, you will find it very simple to do.
DO I NEED TO MAKE EVERY SESSION?
There are only 2 required sessions and I think you'll definitely want to attend both. If you have questions after the sessions are finished, I'm happy to answer them via email or online. If you need more one-on-one help, I charge an hourly rate which we can schedule that on an as-needed basis. Doing your homework will enable you to get the most out of your workshop sessions as possible.
