What did they think about DIY Kickstart?

Martina Wildt

Es lohnt sich echt, du hast sehr guten support beim erstellen deiner Page in Technik- und Designfragen und kannst sie dann später jederzeit selber bearbeiten. Mega herzlichen Dank für eure tolle Arbeit und vor allem an Hans, der echt so zuverlässig und klar alles gemanaged hat

brand-new-du-wir-white

Annette Bauer

Es hat richtig Bock gemacht ins Tun zu kommen und selbst in der Lage zu sein, eine Webseite zu bauen. Die Unterstützung von Hans war dabei immer total fürsorglich und herzlich. Das ist so wertvoll, weil ich meine Webseite gut geführt, aber im eigene Tempo selber bauen konnte. Für alle, die wirklich verstehen wolle, wer sie sind und wofür sie stehen und nicht nur eine "gekaufte" Webseite für sich wollen.

Dr. Anja Breetholt

Du bekommst eine toll vordesignte Webseite, die richtig was hermacht und die du nach Herzenslust an deine Wünsche anpassen kannst! Du solltest am besten trotzdem ein Gespür für Design haben und auch genug Zeit, damit du in der Zeit auch mit der Seite fertig wirst. Ansonsten ist der support Weltklasse und jede Frage wird innerhalb kürzester Zeit beantwortet. Egal welcher Wunsch- Hans macht's möglich. Ich habe mich sehr gut aufgehoben gefühlt.

Sandra Thierolf

Die Videos waren super, alle klar und verständlich! Ich konnte die einzelnen Schritte gut nachvollziehen und bei meiner Webseite selbst anwenden. Das DIY Theme ist klasse! Es lässt sich super damit arbeiten. Viele Module konnte ich 1:1 übernehmen und sie nur meinem Design anpassen. Der DIY ist DER Kurs, wenn du in nur 8 Wochen deine Website selbst an den Start bringen willst. Hans versteht es, mit Humor und Know-How, dir Schritt für Schritt zu erklären, wie du von A nach B kommst, so dass du am Ende mit einer von dir selbst designten Website da stehst und stolz auf dich sein kannst.

Nathalie Follmann

Der DIY Kickstart Workshop hat mir echt viel Spaß gemacht. Gerade für WordPress Einsteiger ist der Kurs super, weil kein Wissen vorausgesetzt wird und die Seite von Beginn an aufgesetzt wird. Hans hat ein eigenes Theme mit vielen tollen Vorlagen erstellt, so dass ich direkt loslegen konnte. Jede Woche kamen neue Video-Tutorials dazu, in denen er unterschiedliche Schwerpunkt-Themen behandelt. An sich haben wir alle einzeln an unserer Webseite gearbeitet, aber durch die gemeinsame Facebook-Gruppe war immer ein super Austausch da und mir haben auch die Fragen der anderen häufig gut weitergeholfen. Mein Highlight waren die wöchentlichen Calls, in denen wir offene Fragen durchgegangen sind und auch mal einen Blick auf die Webseiten der anderen Teilnehmer werfen konnten. Mit Hans als Vollblut-Designer hatte ich jemanden an der Seite, der mir nicht nur bei Technik-Fragen weiterhilft, sondern auch ein wahnsinnig gutes Know How und Gespür für Design hat. Katja übernimmt den Text-Part und auch hier habe ich wieder sehr viel gelernt! Wenn ich nun Texte schreibe, habe ich oft Katjas Tipps im Hinterkopf und kann sie sofort umsetzen.
Also eine volle Empfehlung für alle, die Lust und Zeit auf ein WordPress Abenteuer haben, bei denen sie der eigene Regisseur sind!

Your time to shine?

kick-start your website now!

diy-kickstart-logo-black

I took care of the tech to help you achieve your website goals!

This is what you get:

2-Week preparation bootcamp

Preparation is everything, and we're not going to write success stories if we start without knowing what content or what design basics to use. So before we get all creative in WordPress, we're going to make sure we do it with a plan! The first two weeks of DIY Kickstart is preparation bootcamp: We'll look at what fonts, colors and images to use, as well as what your actual content will be.

Pre-built WordPress website

You'll get a pre-built WordPress website with sample content. We've already taken care of all the technical stuff: You'll have everything you need to get started right away!

Sample pages and templates

We have taken the liberty to already pre-populate your WordPress site with sample pages. You can use these as a blueprint or create new pages yourself using one of the many stylishly pre-designed modules and page templates, available in your WordPress-backend by the click of a button.

Easy-to-use layout tools

I found the ideal way for you to personalize your site. Especially for you, I made a selection of premium tools that are super-practical and easy-to-use! They allow you to quickly design or edit layouts, choose colours and fonts. Simple and practical. You can easily build your pages modularly with a super-practical drag-and-drop system. Text blocks, full screen wallpapers, animations, sliders, accordions ..... you can really go to town and let your imagination run wild. And everything you've come up with can be saved and reused at any time, even complete page layouts.

******

Normally, the combined premium tools cost more than €200/year, but for DIY Kickstarters everything's included in your one-time investment!

Live group calls

There will be five live group calls as support. You have the opportunity to ask questions in advance in our Facebook group, by e-mail, or directly in the call each week. This is spread out over the course of 8 weeks.

Course material, tutorials & expert tips

You'll get your own personal access to the DIY Kickstart course platform, where you will find all the course materials as well as a quick start guide, video tutorials and expert tips & tricks. Not only on the technical side of things, but also on design matters.

Tech support

Once you're done and ready to go online with your site, we'll take care of that. In the meantime, if you have any technical questions, we're there for you!

Bonus

Free 1:1 support!

You'll get an extra 1:1 ZOOM-call with me! We'll have 1 hour to discuss whatever it is you need help with, for zero extra money. (Normal price is €150 😉

Subheadline Hans Groen

A pro right by your side

My name is Hans Groen. I'm Bright Idea's very own, all-in-one Art Director, Graphic Designer, Web Designer / Programmer. In our 1:1 client work I'm responsible for high-quality design, with implementation on- and offline. Digitally and analogously! Through years of experience working in agencies as well as independently, I can offer a full range of design solutions. My Zone of Genius however, would definitely be creating tailor-made websites. My unique combination of both design and programming skills allows me to do so independently. Over the last couple of years I've worked on over 100 web projects, mainly in WordPress.

However, shockingly, there are only 24 hours in my day, too...and at Bright Idea we simply cannot always take on every project that comes along. I also know that not everyone is ready for customized, done-for-you work, if only financially, yet my heart beats for those biz newbies with burning ideas on how to improve the world.

That's why I started looking for a way to expand our services in a way that's attainable for everyone. Enter DIY Kickstart!
