Hi! I’m Amber Ladley, a DIY web consultant with over 15 years of experience building and designing websites. With a knack for communicating technical language in a simple manner, I enjoy teaching people how to use WordPress.com to create their own website.

To get started, let’s schedule a time to chat »
DIY Website: Create and launch your own website
Most websites take at least 3-6+ months to create and can cost $3,000-5,000+. My DIY Website package has been strategically developed to guide you through the process in an efficient manner and for a fraction of the cost. You and I will meet virtually via video chat from the comfort and convenience of your own home/office.
Together we will:
- Plan your website (content, images, purpose)
- Select a design that fits your brand aesthetic and flows well for your site visitor
- Make sure your content is easy to read for your people and search engines
- Add text and images to your website and teach you how to keep it up to date
- Get all of your technical questions answered
- Launch your website
- Celebrate! …then get to work 😉
A website takes time, but the beauty is that it has the immense power to connect with virtually anyone on our Earth and the capacity to grow overtime…along with you.
How does it work?
- First of all, your website is totally private while we build it and you will be able to access it from any computer with internet access.
- Each of our meetings together are one hour in length via video chat and I’m available to you through email in between sessions. I’d rather you not waste hours trying to figure something out. I promise to respond to all email inquiries within 1-2 business days.
- Meetings may be scheduled at any available time slot within 90 days from the date of purchase.
In addition to launching a new website, you will:
- learn how-to keep your website up to date…without fear or frustration
- BONUS: + add website content management and WordPress to your resume!
- get expert guidance (saving you time and money)
- gain confidence in your technical abilities — Yes, you.

*Wordpress.com websites are hosted by WordPress. You will not need to purchase hosting for your website, however if you would like the ability to further customize your site, there are premium options available that are equivalent to the cost of hosting. Rest assured, the features offered with the free version are generous and perfect for someone who is just starting out, wanting to learn WordPress, or does not want to make a huge investment for custom development and/or self-hosting. In most cases, I do highly recommend adding the option to use your own domain name. WordPress.com charges $13/year for this service (plus the cost of your domain if you have not purchased on already — no worries, I can help you with that too!).
