(No techie experience necessary!)
STARTS Monday 5th July
Sorry, the doors to this summer intake are now closed
Your business needs to grow but you…
Have invested in a basic website that is sitting there doing sod all for your business. No traffic, no leads and certainly no sales.
Need to be in charge of your own website, and understand what’s going on under the hood so you can use it as the fantastic marketing tool it should be!
Have no idea how you can get your website found on Google, or how to even get started with picking apart the secrets of SEO. They may as well be guarded by a three-headed puma in a locked basement with no stairs.
Are frustrated with the technology and have often thought about throwing your computer in the bin when grappling with your website
Need a guide to creating a website that YOU can use as a profitable part of your marketing, so you know you are doing it the right way instead of guessing.
Haven’t got a clue how a website is meant to HELP with your marketing, instead of being a giant time and money sink.
...or You haven’t even got a website yet.
You’re waiting for the perfect time – when you’ve ‘made it’, when you have clients / sales / a list the size of a mountain to invest in web design.
But the reality is that without a website you are losing all that lovely Google search juice, you aren’t building up your online brand and boosting your other marketing streams, such as social media.
“I’ve just built my first website, from scratch!
I wanted to do it because I wanted the control and I wanted to understand how and why so I could update it and change it for myself. Luckily Katherine’s course came at just the right time and it’s with her fantastic lessons, advice, guidance and encouragement that I’ve been able to do a job I am really proud of.
Katherine is really knowledgeable but she also demystifies what can be quite a tricky subject. I felt that I was in safe hands throughout and trusted her implicitly. Her chatty and friendly presenting style was easy to listen to and I thought the way she arranged her training was easy to follow and understand.
I have done several of Katherine’s courses now and would not hesitate to recommend her or her services to anyone. She’s fab!”
“Thank you Katherine for creating the Online Gorgeous course. I had invested in getting a website created but it wasn’t a positive process, which left me with an incomplete website.
This course was the perfect cost effective way for me to create the website I wanted despite my limited tech knowledge.
The course was extremely easy to follow and I worked at my own pace. I had all my questions and queries answered via the supportive Facebook group. Open access to the course and Facebook group has provided me with the ongoing support I have needed as I have tweaked and expanded my site”.
You have to be a tech genius to build a profitable website, right?
Building a profitable website is easy when you have a guide for each step of the way. This 9 module course will guide you through the exact same process I use myself when building my clients’ websites so that your website will be built the right way with your business vision, calls to action, list-building and SEO friendly page design built in from the start!
I have taught hundreds of non-techie business owners to design and build their own websites. I use drag and drop website builders that can look the bees knees without any coding or wrangling any complicated tech. Everything is step by step and made simple without jargon or fluffy bits. All good stuff.
But that SEO milarky will give me a headache, surely?
Can SEO look complicated and scary? OH YES! Just the thought of looking at stacks of stats can give me the heeby jeebies. BUT once you have learnt and applied some KEY SEO BASICS you have unlocked the door to Google success. From there, these are rinse and repeats skills that will continue to make your website WORK FOR YOUR BUSINESS AND BRING IN A PROFIT!!

Meet the Business Beautician
(In case we haven’t met yet)
Hi, I’m Katherine Reynolds
I’m from England, living in the North, raised in the South (so no yummy Yorkshire accent I’m afraid)
I have two very different tween and teen kids, one who loves art and creating, and the other who loves building and maths. As a half and half techie geek and arty farty sort, it’s as if they each got exactly one half of my personality.
My worky (‘professional’) background is marketing for small businesses where I had to excel at branding design, tech, copywriting, advertising, websites, events, spreadsheets, long meetings (urgh), jargon (never excelled at that one), being serious (REALLY not me) and anything else that came up. After realising that all those skills would make me a kick-arse business owner who could focus on the things I truly love to do, I launched The Business Beautician into the world in 2013.
Eight years later, I’ve built over 50 websites of all different shapes and sizes, helped countless lovely clients to brand up and get noticed, taught hundreds of business owners how to use the tech to create successful online businesses and learnt more valuable lessons than I can tell you!
Which is why I created a course that would teach you, not only how to build a website but how to make it a central part of your business.
I’ve taken everything I’ve learnt over the years working in the crazy world of online business and streamlined it into the Business Beautician Website Blueprint. 9 easy to follow, step by step modules that will take you from ‘I’ve got no idea what I’m doing’ to ‘I’m bossing it’!
This course is all about making it easy (I don’t believe in complicated). I go slowly, start from the beginning, cover all the basics and give you all the tools and templates you need to create your own website profit machine. I don’t believe in just telling you what you need to do, I tell you exactly how to do it, step by step. Simple.
It’s amazing what you can achieve when all the techie stuff starts to make sense and you can start to use those tools in your business.
I can’t wait to see the transformation you will see in your business!
I wanted a site like ‘The Business Beautician’ but I couldn’t afford to pay Katherine to build it! So I was absolutely thrilled when I discovered that she offered a DIY program where she showed you exactly how to build your own DIVI fabulous site just like hers.
What I loved about this:
1/ The installment payment option made this affordable.
2/ The video tutorials are so easy learn from.
3/ You work through it with Katherine one step at a time making the whole process smooth and user friendly.
There is also plenty of online support! If and when you do get stuck, if you really can’t move forward as I couldn’t do on a number of occasions, Katherine is only too willing to jump online for you and take a look and make the fixes where need be.
I am very grateful. I have learned so much! And, I have complete control of my site and can edit, amend, update, and change any time I want to. I wouldn’t have such autonomy and creative freedom if someone else had built it for me.

Is this course right for you?
All the FAQ
I’ve already got a website, is this course right for me?
This course is perfect for you if that old website isn’t working for your business.
It might be that it was built for you by a developer and you’ve no idea how to use it yourself. It might not be doing a good job at bringing in those leads and sales. It might be that you are so embarrassed with your current site that you try to hide the fact you have one. It might be that your business has evolved and your old website no longer does you any favours.
This course will make sure you understand exactly how to operate a well designed, sales boosting website.
I’m a complete technophobe, will I be able to do this?
No worries, I have worked with a lot of tech shy business owners and they come out feeling like masters of WordPress by the end.
I will take you through each stage of building your website, step by easy step from the very beginning. Watch, pause and do what I’m showing you on screen. Because you will be building your own site, you will understand exactly how it works, how to change and add things and how you can get the best out of your site.
And if you do get stuck I will don my super cape and swoop in to unstick you. Nobody is left behind 🙂
Why should I DIY, when I could get a cheap £500 website knocked up for me?
Learning how to do it yourself means you’ll understand your website and how it works for your business inside out.
Much of the work I do with my clients’ websites is in the planning. How will the website work in their business, what results do they need to see, what are their objectives? I’ve distilled that process into this course so we take a deep dive into how your website will be an active part of your marketing – attracting the right visitors, guiding them to buy, sign up or contact you. You’ll understand what content you need to create, what people are actively searching for online and how they can find you, build those relationships with your brand and buy.
A basic, sort-of-pretty site will only get you so far. We want to take your business to a whole new level!
Will it look like a ‘proper’ professional website?
Of course. We’ll make sure that all the common pitfalls of embarrassing websites are avoided.
Bad images, confusing layouts, menus packed full of EVERYTHING, no calls to action, broken links and pointless pages, old-fashioned or completely disjointed looking themes. We’ve all seen them (or own them).
My step by step website building process makes sure we avoid every one of these website monstrosities. We use a modern, flexible and very easy to make something look brilliant website builder theme, Divi and as a graphic designer I’ll give you a bunch of easy tips to make it all tie together beautifully.
I’m about as creative as a knat, will I really be able to design a website
Yes! We will be building our layout and content first so you’ll know exactly what goes where. No blank screen syndrome here!
Good website design is all about creating easy to navigate layout and fantastic content that will capture the attention of your audience. I’ll take you through the steps to create impactful layout and page design even before we get to adding the ‘pretty’ stuff. You then get a whole module of videos to help you to brand up your content, step by easy step.
Will there be any extra costs?
I use the Divi Builder on the videos which costs $89
You will also need to invest in a good hosting package. I recommend Siteground (but will take you through the options in week 2 so if you don’t have this organised, don’t worry)
If you don’t already have one you will need a domain name, which generally cost about £10 a year (again, I cover this in week 2)
I’m a complete beginner. I’ve never had a website and don’t know if I really need one.
It is perfectly possible to run an online business out of social media or rely on your high street shop to do all your marketing. But your customers WILL look for you on Google. They will expect a business to have a website, even if you don’t sell online. If you are thinking of growing your business a good website is a must.
We’ll be talking about the objectives of your new site in the first module, but a good website will:
- Build the know, like and trust factor of your brand
- Get you good quality leads
- Make you sales
- Move your shop sales online
- Improve your sales flow
- Build relationships with your customers
- Increase returning customer sales
- and much much more!
What if I don’t get it done in time?
Although there are 9 modules, I understand that there is a lot of content to get through. I will be there in the group, supporting you for 12 whole weeks. Answering questions, making sure you aren’t stuck and are getting THE BEST value for this course.
I want you to finish this course with a kick arse, profitable website machine that will supercharge your business and the tools to maintain and nurture it as your business booms.
Wait, I have a question!
