EASIER Than Wordpress: Design Your Business Website

Chamira Young Owner of ChamiraStudios.com, Udemy


"EXCELLENT. Very good course content ... I use Wordpress a lot so it was interesting to go through this course and learn what I've been missing :) " -D'Arcy Mayo

"A REAL WEB PRESENCE. This was the easiest class I have ever taken on the web. I was reluctant to building a WordPress site for many of the reasons stated in the intro. I am a Joomla site builder and found WordPress to intimidating to take on. However I am glad I found this class because it put all of my fears to rest." -Eric Dixon



In this course, you will walk away with a fully functional, 5 page website in 90 minutes using LightCMS , a leading web-based software platform used world-wide by web designers looking for a powerful, yet simple solution for their clients. It’s sophisticated, and much more simple and rock solid than open-sourced CMS systems (Wordpress, Joomla, etc).

Side note: I normally charge $299+ to build out 5 pages for my clients using the techniques you will learn in this course.


Haven't heard of LightCMS? That's because it's the decade-old secret weapon used by many web designers and web agencies. When I discovered LightCMS (which has been around since 1999), I found it to be an excellent solution for growing small businesses that don't want to deal with Wordpress. As a web designer who works extensively with a host of content management systems, including Wordpress, I have steadily seen a need arise for a simple, intuitive solution to web design for small businesses that specifically want more control and less hassle while still producing stunning, effective websites that bring in revenue. LightCMS fulfilled that need perfectly.

I currently use it for clients who fit into this category, and decided to create a course on Udemy for those who want to use it directly and avoid the "web-designer's mark-up fee".


This course is for the entrepreneurs, start-ups and small business that want a much more simple, intuitive solution to building their website without sacrificing quality, functionality, or expandability. It’s for those who don't want to be bothered with hosting, upgrades, backups, and security maintenance. LightCMS was built from the ground up with security in mind. No hacks. No vulnerable holes that plague open source software such as Wordpress, Joomla, etc.


  • A fully functional, gorgeous, professional website that is ridiculously
    easy to maintain.
  • A site that is E-Commerce ready and equipped to engage your
    customers: seamless & secure checkout, unlimited coupon codes,
    manage your orders and customers, and real time shipping integration.
  • A site that let's you create blogs, galleries, calendars analytics and more,
    at the push of a button
  • A fully RESPONSIVE site that will look gorgeous on a laptop, tablet, smart
    phone, and any other mobile device.
  • A site that lets you sleep at night, worry-free. Back-ups are automatic.
    You don't have to set a thing.
  • A site that is monitored 24/7 against hackers or security breaches.
  • A site that gives you full HTML/CSS access (for you techies out there)
  • A site that has secure, top-tier cloud hosting and 99.9% uptime
  • For the full feature list, visit LightCMS.com

For this course, all you need to bring is yourself, a working computer with an internet connection, and a cup of coffee.
