Hi, I’m Amelia. I work with DIY-ers, soloprenerus and small business owners who want to go beyond blogging and grow their website into a business that fits their life.
Maybe you’re here because you want to DIY your website and need self-paced, easy-to-follow instructions. Or maybe you’re here because you want to see if that awesome idea you read about will work for your site.
Whatever reason brought you to Nifiticious, I’m here to help.
How I Got Here And Why I Do This.
I began blogging in 2006 knowing nothing about how to put a website together. In that time I’ve learned everything I could about how to create websites, and in 2010 I started working as a web developer.
What frustrates me about DIY website creation is the lack of basic how-to information on the internet – information that helps everyday, normal people piece together a basic website that works.
Over the years I have developed a knack for being able to break down complex ideas and translate them into every day terms that non-technical folks can understand. I decided to take my skills, knowledge and expertise and create step-by-step video tutorials that help people in the areas they struggle with.
Combining my developer skills and the content marketing knowledge I have gained along the way, I have a unique balance in understanding what is required for a well-converting website, work out the technical steps involved, and how to guide people who don’t have a technical background, through the process.
Your Website Doesn’t Fit Into the ‘One-Size-Fits-All’ Box.
For the last four years I’ve worked in a demanding, hands-on support role for a well-known company that creates and sells WordPress plugins, themes, and even an all-in-one website platform. I’ve experienced first-hand the frustration website owners have when it comes to taking their ideas and putting them into action.
I’ve helped hundreds of soloprenerus, small businesses and DIY-ers, just like yourself, work out what they want to do and how to do it. I love being able to take different concepts and come up with unique and inventive ways to use website tools for different purposes.
Unlike other so-called ‘developers’, my first reaction doesn’t include installing the first available plugin that will clog up your website or write computer code you don’t understand. I prefer to discover what’s possible with the tools I have available, and challenge the limits of what can be done. If there is a way to achieve a specific website or business outcome, without adding more to your website, I will help you find it!
Discover The Possibilities That Help Your Website Grow.
This whole ‘website’ thing is not a secret only geeks are allowed to know. Other people are doing it – and they act as though a five year old should know this stuff – but they forget what it’s like to be where you are now.
There is nothing wrong with you. I know you are smart and capable, but not everything is as obvious to you as it is to other people. My training is for folks who are stuck in the learning curve and need someone who moves at a slower and more detailed pace, without all that technical jargon.
I will patiently guide you with easy-to-understand information, clear and actionable steps, in a language that is ‘tech-free’ and ‘geek-free’. Let me help give your self-confidence a well deserved boost. You can learn how to have type of website you want, without feeling like a technical numpty.
I want to be clear that I do not promise any silver bullets, or that you will become a website ‘ninja’ overnight, but you will develop real-life skills you can use for the long-term.
