  • Some great ways of coming up with a brilliant domain name for your new website
  • What's the deal with website hosting - do you actually need it?
  • Why it doesn't matter if you're not particularly techie - and design isn't your thing either!
  • How you can make sure your website looks brilliant even if you know nothing at all about website-building.

Free live webinar: Creating a logo for your website

10 AM PST, 1 PM EST, 6 PM LONDON, 7 PM PARIS

Every website needs a logo, no matter what kind of site it is that you're creating.  Commissioning a designer to create your logo is ultimately the best way of getting a unique and memorable one, however this isn't always possible.  I'll show you my favourite way of creating a logo, going over each step in a free graphics software so you can see exactly what you need to do.  I'll also show you some really good quality online generators that you can use to make a brilliant logo; there are many of these around but not many of them get you really good results.  These ones do!  Finally I'll show you some ways to hire a designer to create a bespoke logo at an affordable cost, if this is what you'd rather do.

If you can't make it live, don't worry - you'll be able to watch the replay (you do need to register to receive the replay link).  You can ask questions during the session, or ahead of time if you want to and I'll answer them during the live session.

Free live webinar: How to choose a theme or template for your website

10 AM PST, 1 PM EST, 6 PM LONDON, 7 PM PARIS

Choosing a theme (or template) can often be a thorny issue when you're building your own website.  There are just so many beautiful options out there so how do you make a decision and pick one? How do you know that it's going to work for you and present your content in the best way?  I've seen so many people struggle with this that I decided to do a webinar on the topic to help put an end to the confusion.
