Software and Services for Success:
Domain, Web Hosting and Divi are required in this course, since we will be using these when teaching you how to build a website. We recommend building your website while watching this course. You can utilize any domain and hosting services you want, but IONOS and Cloudways are the ones we recommend if you aren't already invested in another provider. We also require WordPress, which is free, but it must be installed on your own paid hosting server.

My name is Leighton Smith, an enthusiastic resident of East Tennessee. In business, I wear several metaphorical “hats.” I am Pioneer Media’s website designer, web developer and webmaster. Each is a unique role in the process of creating a website. As a “solopreneur” freelancer, I am self-employed and the one-and-only point-of-contact for my clients' websites. I’ve built 100s of websites since learning to code in 2006 and absolutely love what I do. In addition to helping small businesses, I enjoy volunteering, strengthening relationships and traveling the world.
