THANK YOU. I’ve been trying to get my site launched for more than a year because I felt like I COULD NOT make any decisions about which platform to use. And, I learned a ton that I didn’t even know that I needed to know. So worth it.
This course was great... got all my questions answered and now I feel like I can ask the right questions when I hire a web designer. Or, maybe even design my own website. Thanks!
Mani and Jaclyn are informative and entertaining instructors! I’ve attended both their online webinars and live workshops and can attest to how much can be learned just from spending a short amount of time with them. Their strategy has informed how I operate my online business, May Day Glow, which is hosted on Wordpress. Thanks for the great inspo, as always.
Take the initiative to invest in yourself and take your business to the next level; we have the tools to help you succeed! We will make sure that you leave our boot camp with a fully-functioning website that looks amazing, converts customers and best of all, is within your creative control.
How much previous coding or technical knowledge is required to attend?
There is no previous coding knowledge required for our bootcamp– just a willingness to learn! We will walk you through step-by-step, hands-on instruction to help you launch your online business and digital marketing tools.
Why is WordPress is the right choice for me?
There are many platforms available for building websites. It’s “never been easier” to manage your own website, and yet learning a new platform can be overwhelming. We are here to help. We believe that WordPress is the most secure and comprehensive platform available that allows you the most options to grow your website along with your business.
What do I need to bring to the workshop?
+A functioning laptop and charger
+Your Pre-Camp Worksheet which should include all of your usernames for your own quick reference, including:
++Your domain’s hosting account login
++Your WordPress theme files
++Your Mailchimp account login
++Your social media links
++All writing for your website’s pages – Homepage, About Page, Contact Page
++All photography that you’d like to use on your site
++Your company’s logo
We take your pre-camp preparation seriously, and you should, too. Together we are packing a TON of hands-on work into two days, so we do everything we can to prepare and get to know you pre-camp.
Do I have homework before I come?
Yes. Each participant gets the benefit of working directly with one of the Digital Dames instructors for a 30-minute strategy session during which you will get personalized instruction and guidance which helps you and your instructors prepare for the boot camp. Your homework includes our comprehensive pre-camp Q&A, and to purchase your domain, theme, images and to pre-write your website copy prior to attending.

What makes this event different from other WordPress camps? Is this for me?
