I'm on a mission to help you launch your own profitable website - even if you have no idea where to start!
Create your standalone website step-by-step with the guidance + support of a professional web designer
Launching your standalone website is the most effective way to increase profitability and take back control as you scale up your handmade business
Learn + Follow my exact web design process I use with all my 1-on-1 clients
Diversify your sales channels to mitigate risk if one channel goes offline
Play by your OWN rules and craft a buyer experience that captivates your visitors
Build a beautiful + Profitable website for your business
Sell your products with no transaction fees and no listing fees
I have been a professional web designer for over 11 years. But before that, I went to art school - I graduated with a graphic design degree.
I have always loved art and craft. Over the years I fell in love with soapmaking and I joined several FB groups for soapmakers, crafters, and Etsy sellers.
I can't tell you how many posts I see in these groups over and over asking about how to get started with standalone websites.
I have a passion for teaching people how to build and manage their own websites. I knew I could help so many handmade sellers launch their own websites and so I have been teaching WordPress to makers since 2016!
"I had been stuck for months, literally, like maybe even a year on publishing my website. You got me thinking on a clear path and helped me finally make decisions and I even pressed 'publish'. You have such a real and easy way about your teaching style."
Imagine what it will be like to launch the website of your dreams.
- Send customers to your own custom web address, where visitors aren't 2 clicks away from your competitor's product (which is undercutting yours by $5).
- Your customers can experience a fully-branded shopping experience.
- You can spend your weekends at home with your family instead of hauling tables and tents from event to event.
- Enjoy higher profit margins because there are ZERO transaction fees.
- Add and sell as many products as you want since there are NO listing or renewal fees.
- Enjoy the security knowing that you own your own platform and the satisfaction of making your own rules.
People will ask who you hired to design your amazing site and you'll say. "Actually, I did it myself."

If you're new to web design and word press, I highly recommend this course. Bex goes over all the details you'll need to design your own website. The course teaches you how to set up your pages & navigation, how to design your pages, how to save & publish your pages, how to create your contact page, and how to use plugins to improve your website, and how to add your branding to your site. Bex also reviews which plugins are recommended for security and backup, and so much more. Nothing is left out. If you find that you have further questions or need more direction & help, Bex is always there to answer your questions. You can't go wrong with this course, it's money well spent if you wish to design your own personal site...
"Rebecca communicated enough info in the course that I feel like I can finish and manage my website and I now know enough not to be taken advantage of if I have someone else manage it. That was extremely valuable to me."
"fun and enlightening"
"Before enrolling I had NO experience with setting up a website, but I knew I had the ability to build a site with clear instructions. I wanted to make my hobby more like a business. Going through each step with Rebecca's instruction was fun and enlightening. The course stretched my learning curve into other areas like copywriting and selling practices."
Your journey to website success begins now
I've helped many small business owners launch their own website & now it's your turn.
To hire me to design and build your website for you starts around $2100. Some other professional web designers or agencies charge $5k or more.
Investing in Create. Launch. & Flourish - Together an affordable way to learn my exact process, discover the tools I use in my business, and get your own beautiful website for much less. And you still get support and feedback from me!
"I was able to set up my website with confidence"
"I struggled with creating an e-commerce site for the first time. But with your guidance I was able to set up my website with confidence, and successfully launch my website knowing that I had the right components in place. I was very pleased with the end result. I thought Create. Launch. & Flourish was fantastic. Very informative, easy to understand and yet you kept the technical language ever present, something that I certainly value. Your love of teaching certainly shows and I, for one, really appreciate it."

WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?
This course is a great opportunity if:
You're a handmade or small business owner & want a standalone website with online shop or even just a basic website.
You want to grow your business so it could become (or already is) your full-time income.
You want a website that grows with you. You can start small and add on new functionality and features without feeling limited by the platform.
You want to learn WordPress. You know there's a little learning curve but having the ability to grow and customize later is worth it.
Your time is precious - you don't want to waste it researching and building a website by trial and error. You want me to show you exactly how to build your site, start to finish.
A $3,000-$5,000 website just isn't in the budget. You're making sales and you want to invest in your biz, but you're not quite ready for a custom-developed site yet.
You've already done most of the groundwork like: ideal client, branding, creating a great product line that sells, and have good photography.
This course isn't the best fit for you if:
You want to be a blogger and to build a blog only, with income from ads.
You want to build a drop-shipping ecommerce empire and develop a site with thousands of products imported from independent vendors.
Your handmade endeavour is just a hobby and you're not interested about growth or profit.
Cost is the #1 factor in every decision. You just want a free or very cheap website. Features, Scalability, and Quality aren't very important.
You need 24/7 phone support. If you really struggle with computer stuff and need to get 1-on-1 support often, you should consider building on Shopify.
You have ZERO time to dedicate to building your site. If you don't want to prioritize time to design & build your site, you should probably hire a professional web designer (*ahem* like me 😉).
You don't have a logo, branding, or ideal customer. Your product line isn't streamlined for scaling or you're unsure if your products will sell.
