Welcome to the Free Online DIY Website Workshop—a seven-session course that’ll help you launch a website (even if technology baffles you). If you’re just now joining us, I recommend starting at week one.


Welcome back, friends!

Now that you’re clear on strategy and you know what pages you want on your site, it’s time to write them.

In the sessions below we’ll walk through on-page strategy, writing your first draft, editing, and search engine optimization. By the end of this week, you should have three to five pages written and optimized for your site.

Scroll down to get started.

Session One: Welcome & On-Page Strategy

Resources:
:: Download the page tables.

Session Two: Homepage

Session Three: Writing Page Content

* In the writing phase, don’t forget to use your brand personality (those three+ adjectives we identified in week one). Before sitting down to write, take a look at your key message doc and remind yourself how you want your voice to come across (you’ll be surprised how much just reminding yourself of that voice brings the voice out).

Session Four: Content Revisions

Session Five: SEO & Other Page Elements

Additional Resources

:: Canva! This free tool allows you to create custom graphics for your site and social media profiles. It’s pretty easy to use, but do let me know if you want me to walk you through it a bit on our call this week. (I know I mentioned this a couple weeks ago as well, but it’ll start really coming in handy now that we’re doing content and about to go into design.)
