About the Author

William Shane Roberson, who goes by "Shane" runs a digital marketing agency in New Orleans La. where he found a gap between clients who could afford his marketing services and those needing a website for their business or brand. Many of his clients and potential clients would share horror stories of issues with less than reputable “web designers” which Shane later identifies as CSGs or Coffee Shop Gurus that left projects unfinished or poorly executed. This sparked his drive to educate those who are not able to use a reputable digital marketing agency for their web projects to build their own websites from the ground up. With a Bachelors of Science in Web Design and an Associates of Arts in Graphic Design, Shane has all of the tools to empower even the most novice users to build their own websites and save thousands of dollars and headaches. Using simple tools and automation Shane shows his students how to build a high-quality website without using code. “If you can use a text editor and social media on your computers then you are more than qualified to design your own high-quality website using Wordpress” - Shane Roberson
