Build the website of your dreams... without the nightmare price tag!
Introducing the done-with-you program that guides you step-by-step through building your own beautiful, profitable website (no coding, design or tech skills required).
The next group starts January 2023. Limited spots available.
“When I decided to set up a website for my Trauma-Informed Life Coach business I had no idea where to start, what resources to use, what hosting site to use, how to register a domain name, or where to find and import images, I was in fact basically clueless.
A friend recommended Done Right Website Academy and I immediately signed up. It was a game-changer for me! I found April to be an excellent instructor. Her classes were organized and informative.
She is an expert in the field of website design. No question was left unanswered. She was patient with repeat questions as well. She provided plain step-by-step instructions so we, as students, were capable to build our personalized website. I highly recommend this course.”
Wondering if this is right for you?
Let’s face it. Building a website can be intimidating and scary.
You feel like there’s so much to do, it’s overwhelming.
What do you do first? How does it all connect together?
You know you need a website, but are afraid you won’t be able to figure out how to set it up or it won’t look good.
Maybe you already have a website, but you’re embarrassed to send people to it because it doesn’t reflect your business.
You have a list of things you’re supposed to do, but have no idea HOW to do them. You don’t have time to figure out which tech is best, let alone how to use it!
Where you were once excited to get started, that enthusiasm is fading quickly as fear and overwhelm set in.
YOU NEED HELP!
You don’t want a completely DIY course because you know yourself… you probably won’t finish it.
You want someone to walk with you, keep you accountable, give you feedback along the way, and answer your questions.
And you need to be able to do it all with limited tech skills and no design experience.
“April is so good at what she does! She has broken down the course into an easy-to- follow step-by-step format and teaches concepts simply and clearly.
She is approachable and patient as she works with where each individual is at in the process of website creation. Her encouragement is refreshing and her love for what she does is evident as she helps each person succeed. Thank you, April!”
–Heather Eschmeyer, Certified Identity and Purpose Coach
Have you ever visited a website to learn more about a business?
But when you got there, you either couldn’t find what you were looking for or the website looked unprofessional?
Were you immediately turned off and clicked away?
THIS DOES NOT NEED TO BE YOUR BUSINESS!
You can have a website that is clear, easy to understand, focused, looks amazing, generates leads, and appeals to your ideal client.
NO coding, design, or tech skills required!
“I loved that you went in depth about branding and teaching about your target market, etc. I felt that you cared about everyone succeeding in building their own website, and making sure it looked good too.
I appreciated that you were available to answer any questions we had and that you gave your honest opinion on the ideas we brought to class. Usually I am very hesitant to be in the “hot seat” and have my ideas “judged”, but the process was very painless and very supportive.
You always made sure that we didn’t feel “stupid” when we didn’t know the tech. The course is very in-depth, but simple to understand even for the “tech-challenged” person.
I loved that the videos were very in-depth and labeled so we knew exactly where to go and find the answer. You have a fun personality and can communicate very well so we could understand and follow the step by step directions.”
–Lori Randall, Sacred Soul Space Mentor
NOTE: This is not a DIY course… because if you could have done it all yourself, you would have already! This is a DWY (Done With You) class. I will be with you through the entire process.
I’m a little “old school” that way. I like having a live teacher, and other students, and being able to ask questions, and actually feeling like I have accomplished something by seeing the results of my work.
I would highly recommend this course. It is a great tutorial of starting from the ground up.
Learning the principles and tools of creating not only a website, but a brand and business model. April walks you through all the needed steps in a clear and concise way. It’s a great format to ask questions and also go at your own pace.
I enjoyed the ease of using the portal for the self guided video lessons and enjoyed the visuals and slides and the extra resources/downloads shared over email.
I enjoyed the flexibility of listening to the videos at my convenience. The video instruction quality was very professional as well as the course content. I appreciated April’s flexibility and availability for open office hours. She was very accommodating and very helpful. It was good to get the group feedback and share in the live group setting. Also helpful to learn as others ask questions.
–Connie Jorgensen, Administrative Assistant at Life Changing Services – Therapeutic Services
“This course is totally worth it!! The information given along with the structure gives you everything you need to build a website you can be proud of and confident to put out there!
The best part, is that you create it yourself with step by step help along the way!
Take that plunge! You won’t regret it!
— Irene Savakis, Art Therapist (non-clinical)”
New Class begins January 11th, 2023
“April’s friendly and relatable demeanor puts me at ease.
It seems like as soon as I have a question she already knew that question would exist and had the answer. The best part is you can learn at your own pace and time schedule by having a video of the lessons to use as needed again and again.”
–Debbie Stransky, Certified Eternal Warriors Mentor & Life Coach
enroll with Confidence
The things I teach in the Done Right Website Academy are strategies and tech I have personally used in my own and clients’ businesses.
I’m so confident you can learn to use them and set up your own website, if you go through the videos and attend the classes, but still can’t figure it out, I will work with you individually at no extra charge to help you get everything set up.
If you show up, apply what you learn, do the work, and take advantage of the support offered, I have absolutely no doubt you will LOVE THE CLASS and get your website launched.
That said, if after 2 classes you decide this isn’t for you , I’ll refund your full investment. No questions asked.
Some people can figure out the tech stuff and do everything on their own.
But you have to ask yourself… is that me?
Or would I be better with someone helping me, someone teaching me, someone walking me through it all? Someone I can ask questions to along the way?
A group keeping me accountable to finish and get stuff done?
Only YOU can answer those questions.
For those ready to save time, money, headaches, frustration, and a few grey hairs…
ENROLL TODAY! You’ll be happy you did!
Get started growing your business today!
April’s “Done right website class” was an answer to my website woes!!!!
Years ago, I tried to have someone build a website for me and it was a nightmare and waste of money. I never felt like they understood “the look” I was really going for (I don’t think I did either) and in the end I hated how unprofessional the final product looked.
Then, I tried to have my husband build one for me, but that ended up in more fights than it was worth. I tried a DIY web builder, but I had no idea what I was doing and basically gave up.
Fast forward to April’s class… I was so impressed how detailed the course was. Everything was easy to understand and the step by step process was very doable.
I was put as ease from day one with learning the tech part. In the past, I would have a panic attack over learning all the tech, but April has a way with explaining it at a level that even a “computer challenged” person, like myself, could understand. April is also very entertaining and has a great personality and really wants you to “get it”.
If I had any questions, she was very quick to give me an answer by email or set up a call to help with anything I was struggling with. At the end of the course, I felt pretty confident with the final product and now I can say I have a website that I am proud of!!! Plus, I can make all the updates myself and don’t have to pay anyone else to do it.
Thank you, April, for giving me the confidence I needed to finally get it done!!! Plus, my husband is happy that I don’t have to bug him about building me a website anymore…priceless!!!

I have worked with students ages 18 to 72, and I haven’t had one yet that couldn’t do it.
I walk with you the entire way. I want to see you succeed. I will help you. And if you need extra help along the way, I have office hours set aside just for my current students… at no extra charge. It’s included in your course.
That all being said, if you enroll and get started, and feel you can’t do it, let me know within the first week and I will refund your money, no questions asked.
If you try, but still need help, I will work with you individually to get your business online, I am that committed to your success.
This is a hybrid course with video trainings and live weekly calls for 8 weeks.
You will have “lifetime” (as long as I have the course up) access to the training videos.
In addition, we will have open group coaching meetings once a week for 8 weeks and access to schedule office hours during the 8 weeks.
If you have any questions, I will be right there to answer them.
Of course, you should block out time slots to complete the 8 weeks of your group coaching meetings.
This is NOT required, but very helpful if you have questions, want live feedback, or want to learn from others. (Sometimes we don’t know what questions to ask but can learn from others’ questions.)
In addition, you should plan to spend another couple hours a week working through the videos.
The rest will be up to you. If you want to get everything done during our 8 weeks together, I would block out another 4 hours a week to just DO STUFF.
Some weeks will take longer than others, but if you block 4-8 hours a week, you will have everything ready in 8 weeks.
(Note: everyone learns at a different pace, and everyone is able to “get stuff done” at a different pace–so you will need to adjust this time to fit your own personal learning and working schedule.)
Once the course is finished and you have all the foundations in place, your time commitment will be considerably less.
You will be able to choose how you spend your time, hopefully that will be in building your list and nurturing your leads into paying clients.
We will have our “live” calls each week via Zoom. You can attend from the comfort of your own home office.
You can even come in your jammies if that is how you learn best. No judgement here! 😉 Yoga pants are my favorite to work in!
Once you enroll, I will send you more information with the Zoom link.
The website set up and foundations I teach are important for ANY business.
The templates and outlines used can be customized to any online business. Feel free to come to my office hours and we can adjust things to your individual business.
I am also happy to create a template that fits your business if the ones I offer won’t work.
This is great, it will help you with wording and finding images… because you will have done a lot of the work already!
We will be building a WordPress website using Siteground as the hosting. If you have a WordPress website with a different hosting company, you can continue to use that, no need to switch hosting accounts.
You can learn from the class ways to improve your website, get individual feedback from me and other class members, make sure your site is focused, integrate the email marketing and lead magnet as well as your calendar.
Or, if you don’t like your current website, you can start from scratch.
If you have a site on a different platform (Wix, Weebly or Squarespace), you’ll need to decide if you want to take the principles we learn in class and update your site on your own, (I can give you suggestions on content), or create something fresh with what we do in class. However, I will not be teaching, nor am I an expert in, any of those other platforms.
I am guessing if you are on one of those platforms, your site is not working the best or you are not happy with it if you are here. Now would be the time to make the move.
If you have more questions, feel free to email me at email@example.com and I am happy to answer your questions.
When it comes down to it, the question of whether the Done Right Website Academy is worth the investment is really up to you.
Of course, you can crawl through thousands of YouTube tutorials containing competing and differing advice and spend countless hours trying to duct tape useful snippets together. You can purchase several online courses and work on them all one at a time and hope you don’t have any questions along the way.
Or you can make a one-time investment in the Done Right Website Academy and receive access to a step by step course and LIVE teacher. You can ask questions and get feedback from me and the group during our 8 weeks together… making setting up your website easier than ever before.
The tough love bottom line?
When you decide to join the Academy, you’re investing in more than just an online course – you’re investing in yourself, your business and your future profitability.
Just like in school you need to purchase books, there are a few things you will need to invest in.
I believe in total transparency, so here is a list of additional fees you will incur and the approximate cost. I have listed the price as they are today (the day I am creating this page), but since these are out of my control, it is possible they could go up before I get this page updated to reflect the current pricing.
Additional fees and approximate pricing:
Domain: (your website address or URL) about $20 a year (you have to renew your domain every year)
Hosting: about $8 a month to get started. Most hosting companies give a discount if you pay for the first year in advance.
Elementor Pro: $59/year (there is a free version of Elementor you can use, but for all the extra things and integrations we do in this class, the Pro version is required).
Canva (or Canva Pro): The free account will work just fine, but if you upgrade, and I highly recommend it for all the cool extra things, the Pro account is about $10/month.
Schedule Once or Calendly: I use the free version. No extra cost here.
Mailerlite: free for the first 1000 subscribers. After that, it starts at $15/month. (But if you are like me, you will gladly pay the $15/month for more than 1000 subscribers on your list).
When you see something you know you need, it’s easy to think to yourself “I’ll put this off until a better” time.
The only trouble is, no such time exists and before you know it, you’ve wasted weeks of income generating time and you’re still frustrated, overwhelmed, stressed and dissatisfied.
Part of my role as an educator/mentor/coach is to hold you to the same high standards I hold for myself and encourage you to take the decisive actions.
As you’ve probably heard before, “if you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.”
Each time I offer the class the price usually goes up–so if you are on the fence, now is the best time financially to jump!
That all being said, timing is totally up to you, it’s personal to your life and your business. Just remember, we make time for the things that are important to us.
I will have pre-made templates you can use and customize, drag and drop editors, and show you how to use it all.
And for those that want to do things on their own, I will show you how to do that too.
For branding and logo design: Canva (I highly recommend Canva Pro, although the free version works great too.)
For websites: WordPress and Elementor Pro
(WordPress itself is free, but you will need to invest in hosting, we will use Siteground for this class, and purchase a domain. Elementor does have a free version, but for this class you will need the Pro version, which is $49 per year. NOTE: our founding class will have Elementor Pro included for FREE–my gift to you!)
For email automation: Mailerlite (free for the first 1000 subscribers)
For online scheduling: Calendly or Schedule Once (I use the free version)
This is the same tech stack I use in my own business and recommend to all my clients.
I have office hours set up for current students. Feel free to come in (Zoom room) and ask any questions you have.
I am here to help you. I want to see you succeed.
First, you will have your classmates you can exchange contact information with if you want to keep in touch.
If you need additional one-on-one coaching after the class is over, I am available for you to schedule with.
That is exactly why you want to take this course!
You will know how to do that and be comfortable with making changes. As your business grows, you will have the tech know-how and confidence to grow with it.
In general, if either before the class begins, or up to a week after we have started, you decide this is not for you, I will refund your money, no questions asked.
If you complete the class and feel you weren’t able to get everything done or couldn’t figure it all out, I will work with you individually at no extra cost to get your website built.
Of course. I take one individual website client per month.
Depending on your specific needs, a complete website package (branded website, professional email, lead magnet, email automation, scheduling calendar integration, training) like what you get in the Done Right Website Academy runs between $1900-$2500.
If you are interested in this, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can give you more information.
You’re still reading!
This tells me you’re serious.
Your heart is nudging you forward, but you are someone who likes to think about things.
I totally get that.
I have been there. But you know what, I finally learned… to get anywhere, you need to MOVE. It doesn’t have to look perfect, you just have to be moving.
If you aren’t moving forward… which direction are you going?
Listen to your gut, and then TAKE THE LEAP!
A little background on me, your instructor…
I was a licensed teacher for 15 years, taught adults at the Applied Technology College and currently own a website creation company.
Last year, I decided to go back to my passion of teaching when I got tired of attending webinars that gave you a list of things to do to build your business, but never showed you HOW TO do it with the tech.
I decided I could DO SOMETHING about it and teach the tech to beginning business owners so they are empowered to set up and grow their business… the DONE RIGHT WEBSITE ACADEMY was born!
