What if you could have a website that would meet your needs whether you're a beginner or a NYT best selling author?
What if it could be affordable and easy to maintain?
What if you could have someone hold your hand and walk you through the entire process?
Welcome to the Crazy Easy Awesome Author Website taught by Lisa Norman (Heart Ally Books and Deleyna's Dynamic Designs -- also Margie Lawson's web designer).
We'll cover each part of a website. I'll help you choose a hosting company, get a domain name, set up the space, and build a website using the most popular platform for writers: WordPress. We'll cover how to create your email sign-up forms and even integrate the site with your social media platforms.
Learn how to secure your website to keep it as safe as possible.
Create your proven online author platform without pain.
Lisa will work with you every step of the way, including doing a hands-on review of your site. You'll learn what to do to maintain it, and how to update and make changes.
Get stuck? We'll work through it together.
By the end of this class you'll have a beautiful, personalized author's website that will make you proud.
Note: a website has to live somewhere. This may incur hosting fees. We'll talk through the options in class and each student will make their own choices about where their site will live. Free options will be included, but students may choose to purchase hosting. Fees associated with setting up the website are not included in the cost of the course.

Haha, well, that's how I entered the class--totally stupid--but Lisa wiped out that refuge! No pity parties with me as the host and guest of honor. She did a super job explaining everything in manageable brain bites, and, most wonderful of all, gave one-on-one time to help me over my stupid--er, confused--moments. How often do you get that kind of personal attention from an instructor? The result is a lovely website that actually works and that I can actually manage. Run, don't walk, to take advantage of this wonderful class!
I thought taking Lisa Norman's 'Crazy Easy Author Website' would provide me with a good working web site from which to expand my social media presence.
It gave me that AND SO MUCH MORE!
Creating this site, with Lisa's very patient and expert assistance, EMPOWERED me to embrace my skills as a song writer and author. The experience helped me value what I can offer others through these gifts. Now, I'm excited to write more, create more and CONNECT WITH PEOPLE! (something, as an introvert, I've always found hard to do).
THANK YOU, Lisa, for a tremendously positive experience! You are truly knowledgeable and patient. The one on one sessions were tremendous and helped build my confidence. Thank you again for a great course!
Lisa Norman's Crazy Easy Authors-Websites class was akin to walking between a mama bear and her three cubs (something my 4-yr-old daughter and I did). Instead of being surrounded by mama bear and her three cubs, in class I was surrounded by widgets, plugins, permalinks, and akismet. Familiar terms like newspaper and themes changed their meanings. My daughter and I survived our encounter with the bears, and thanks to Lisa Norman, I not only survived Crazy Easy Authors-Websites: I survived with a working website.
I've now enrolled in Maximize Your Crazy Easy Author's Website. Guess I like crazy! If you want a website, take the class!
Lisa is a superb and wonderful instructor. She is knowledgeable about what you need to create a website that is secure and will provide the functionality that you want. The lessons were straightforward and the material was broken up into manageable pieces. The one on one sessions were invaluable. I appreciate the time she took to answer my questions and her help in solving some issues I encountered while setting up my site.
I highly recommend this class.
Lisa really knows...what we'd all like to know! And she also knows how to teach and make learning fun. A truly amazing and top-notch combination of skills.
