Web Design

with WordPress

A Training organised by Michael Adegoke (Founder of youlaif.com)

2022 is here and you should start achieving your goals immediately.
The coming of our Lord Jesus Christ is near and we need to invest all the resources we have into the expansion of His kingdom as much as we can and as soon as we can. One of the major resources we need whether we like it or not is ‘money’. Money helps is not the only tool but it is one of the major tools for spreading the gospel.
As Christians, we need to take charge of the world. We need to assert our authority in every sphere of influence. If Christians had ventured into technology earlier and created Social Media platforms earlier, we won’t be experiencing this censorship of our voices as we have it at the moment. The Movie industry is left with almost no representation if not for a few ministries.
This year 2022. Make up your mind to learn new things. Break into technology, data science, cyber-security, web design etc.
I am here to help you get started.
You will need to create a brand for yourself and get positioned globally for all that God wants to do for you and through you, you can also make money from building websites.
I would teach you how to build a website in a very easy but comprehensive way.
I am starting a training series that will run for 3 months where I will teach you just this.

Goal

The aim of this training is to teach you how to create any kind of website all by yourself. The training will teach you how websites work, including domain name, hosting and web design. You would also learn how you can create your first website at a very affordable rate.
