Create a Solid Foundation for Your Website
Know what decisions you need to make, when and why you need to make them so you can have all the pieces you need including the strategy, content, branding and essential tech plan to build or have built a compelling website.
You need a website but creating it is overwhelming
You’re starting a business and you feel completely overwhelmed by all the decisions you have to make.
You want to have a bigger impact and help more people but you can’t be found online.
You know you need a website but you don’t know where to start. There are so many things that you don’t know making the project even more daunting.
You know you are missing out on opportunities and clients.
You’re worried about making the wrong decision and wasting time, energy and money. But not making a decision wastes all those things.
There is something you don’t know and it’s costing you, big time.
You don’t have the foundation you need.
Everyone thinks websites are about the technology you use but it is really about creating a solid foundation, because the most important part of a website is what you put on it.
If you start with the tech and the tools, you are going about building your website backwards. The tech is one of the last steps.
Without that foundation, you end up with a website that is unclear and doesn’t appeal to anyone, especially your ideal client.
There is a better way. Start with the foundation you need.
Create a solid foundation, establishing your online strategy for what you want your website to do for you.
Get clarity on the crucial aspects of what you need to include on your website to make that a reality.
Know which decisions you need to make, in what order because you want to progress in a logical order that builds on itself.
Know why you need to make these decisions based on best practices. Because if you don’t know why, you won’t make a decision or commit to your choice – which will keep you stuck.
Get peace of mind knowing that you have a clear plan as well as guidance and support to create a solid foundation so you can then have your website built for you or build it yourself.

We will look at platform options, and how to expand your website capabilities, including looking at payment systems.
Leah, you certainly have ‘the gift’ of compassionately communicating the next right step – even to folks (me) whose biggest obstacle is simply a case of tech-anxiety.
I love how we’re able to make practical application, with your guidance, towards our website’s look, feel & content. I love how much I learn from everyone’s process, not just mine. Your leadership is finally making my website a fun and creative & truly introspective experience!
This has been a very deep and meaningful journey. It is truly a privilege to work with you.
When I started out as a coach, I was told that I HAD to have a website. I am techy so I decided to build it myself. It was awful.
Hiring a web designer didn’t improve things because I still didn’t have a solid foundation.
I learned everything I could about creating effective website for myself until I built that foundation.
Eventually people were asking me to do their websites. I combine my coaching with the techie side of website creation.
It’s not ‘just’ a website. It’s about creating an online presence that attracts your ideal clients so you can help make a difference in the world.
What will I get at the end of the program?
When the course is over, and if you do the work, you will have all the pieces you need to be able to build your website or have it built for you.
If you already have a website, then you will be able to update it to reflect the foundation you have created.
What is a pilot?
A pilot means that this is an early version of my course. I will be creating and testing it as we go. It will not be perfect. This means that you get the benefit of a deep discount.
We – the group – are going to co-create the course together.
You get to help determine where we focus our time, attention and energy based on what YOU want.
In return, I ask for your active participation and a testimonial when we are done.
What is co-creation?
Co-creation means that I will be creating the content as I go and you will be guiding me on what I need to include based on what you want.
Can I get extra help?
Of course. There will be a lot of support within the group from me and others.
If you want to schedule some more 1:1 time with me, you can do so for an additional fee.
I have more questions
If you would like to get your questions answered 1:1 via a Zoom call you can schedule a coffee chat here: https://leahalbrecht.com/coffee_chat/
You can also call me at 604-597-4650 (landline) between 9am and 5pm Pacific.
Will I have a finished website by the end of this course?
No. In this course we are focusing on the strategy and what to put on your website. How to put it on a specific platform is a course by itself. (This will most likely be my next pilot. Those taking this course will be eligible for a discount on that next step.)
