When you join this course (or any of my courses) you'll also get access to the Student Center where you'll get support from Josh and other students in the course as you make your way through.

The student center also includes:

✔️ A dedicated support forum for this course
✔️ Access to live monthly Q&A's with Josh
✔️ An introduction thread to meet other students

Some Additional Notes:


We will build out a full website in this course but it is not a website "design" course persay. It's more about the process from starting and finishing a website.


This is not an SEO course. Will cover some of the basics, how to optimize, how to submit to Google, etc but the focus is not an SEO course.


This course isn't Divi specific or even WordPress specific and can be applied to web design creation with any coding or CMS platform.


Do I have access to the full course when purchased?
Absolutely! This is not a “drip style” course. You’ll have full access to go through any section you want, at any time.
Do I have lifetime access to the course?
You have full access to the course for as long as it’s up! (which should be a very long time ) There’s no enrollment deadline or course closing.
Will the course be added on to?
Not likely as the course is already 100% built out and in place but I will make any updates or additions needed to refine or add to the process if need be.
Are there tests or quizzes?

Heck no. No quizzes, tests or any sort of academic feeling with this course. It’s really more of a training guide. If you’re like me, you hate tests and had enough of those in school ?

What format is the course in?

Each lesson will be in video walk-through format (like my tutorials) and accompanied by written posts. Vimeo does not support automatic captions or subtitles so those are not available which is one reason I accompany each video with written posts that cover what’s in the videos. Disclaimer: any teaser videos of the course footage on YouTube may display captions but that’s YouTube specific, again no captions or subtitles are available on the course videos currently.

Will the course ever close or expire?
It will be available until it’s either discontinued or revised/updated. In short, it will be up and updated for a very, very long time 😉

  1. Josh Brayer

    What a gift to be a member of the Web Designer Pro community — this is the 2nd of Josh’s courses I have completed. As someone who has a graphic design background but no web design, I find this content to be uber valuable and beyond worth the cost, even if you were to simply take the class without being in the community. Josh has a way of presenting the material that is easy to digest, is action-related, and is highly encouraging. I can’t wait to put all this knowledge into my own biz!

  2. Jeff Opsal

    Awesome course Josh, lots of useful stuff here! This will definitely help me streamline my website building process!

  3. Michael McCloud

    If you are looking for a clear and concise step by step guide for your website process, this is the course for you. Josh uses great examples and provides a ridiculous amount of tools to set you up for success. I am very confident in my process now that I have completed this course.

  4. Eric Decker

    Josh, Thank you for developing this course. It has definitely helped me to deepen my understanding about the steps required to build a complete site.

  5. J.L. Gore

    Josh’s Web Design Process Course is an excellent overview of the start-to-finish process of getting a website planned, built, and launched for a client!

  6. Varvara

    Excellent course! Josh is a generous teacher and he has a really high quality material always.

  7. Jacqueline Guarente

    This is the perfect course to help streamline my workflow, and me from asking myself “Did I forget to do something?” A great detailed and valuable course. Highly recommend.

    Josh has some of the best and most thorough courses I have ever taken. They have helped me become more confident in running my business. Everything you get, with all the details, references, and documents is worth every penny. Thank you, Josh!

  8. Katheryn Symington

    I love Josh’s courses and I find them so informative. They take the guesswork out of it and provide a simple streamlined approach that is easy to follow.

  9. Ben Mozzer

    Thanks Josh for this excellent course! I’m sure I will find the web design process steps invaluable when I begin a new project. I use checklists all the time and having one for web design is a great resource.

  10. Emily Arthur

    I cannot tell you how grateful I am that Josh has this & other courses! I used to spend HOURS researching and learning the hard way and was left with a million questions and still unsure if I was doing it right. I love how thorough this course is and how confident I feel about the important aspects of site design (backing up etc.). Thank you a million times over and I cannot wait to get stuck into the next course.

  11. Susan H

    Just finished this course & found it incredibly useful. I’d been putting together my own process plan on a Trello board as I was going along from build to build but I didn’t have all of the knowledge & experience that is in this course. Oh, how I wish I’d known about this course when I started out.

    As I’ve gone through the course I’ve updated & re-organised my process plan & feel way way more confident to work going forward. I know I will be faster, more knowledgeable & build better sites for my clients now! Lots of wins!

    Josh’s teaching style is perfect. Engaging, super interesting & real-world practical. I have the business course lined up next, & I can’t wait!

  12. Emily Tarrant

    This course is exactly what I needed. I love Josh’s style of presenting. This is absolutely packed full of practical steps that you can easily adopt yourself, together with a downloadable checklist (who doesn’t love a checklist!). I’ve come away with some really solid ideas of how I can improve my own process.

  13. lori

    Really great course. Absolutely love Josh’s teaching style. He makes the course easy to follow and listen to. I wanted to hone in on our processes and really took away some things we were missing. Now I have tweaked our own process and made it even better thanks to this informative course.

  14. Robyn Fehrenbacher

    I can’t even express the high value of this course. Josh freely shares his organized process of web design. I completed every step along with his guidance and wow, talk about a confidence boost going forward with clients! High recommended! Thanks Josh! On to the next course in the bundle!

  15. jb

    Great course. Josh explains everything clearly and provides links for extra info which is very helpful. I’ve been doing web dev for awhile and still learned some very valuable stuff. Highly recommend. It’s great to have a checklist and follow it to the end knowing that all the important things have been done. Josh rocks!

  16. William Taylor

    Loved this! I feel so much more confident now that I have a process that I can check off when building a site to make sure that I haven’t forgotten anything. Josh really goes in depth on his steps to make it easy to follow along

  17. Tom Perry

    My wife bought me this course for a birthday gift (at my suggestion!), and it turned out to be one of the best presents I ever got! Josh over-delivers in this course with a ton of incredibly helpful information about the whole process of planning, building and launching a website. Josh generously shares loads of additional resources and references as well, so nothing is left out. I learned so much during this course, and if you’re looking for a comprehensive guide for your next and future web design projects, I highly recommend it. Thanks Josh!

  18. Leanne Cyr

    Another 5-STAR review for Josh! I’ve been developing website for 15 years and thought I had my process nailed down. Think again! Josh covers so many areas it’s unbelievable. Josh’s delivery is amicable and clear. You leave every tutorial feeling like he’s a friend who understands your pain points. This is a MUST for every Divi developer!! A big thank you, Josh!

  19. Jennifer Mehta

    Another 5* review for Mr Hall! Josh does a great job at explaining concepts in a way that’s easy to follow, easy to understand and is engaging.

    I am a checklist kinda girl, so I LOVED this course which follows Josh’s Web Design checklist step by step. The checklist alone is worth the investment.

    Thanks Josh!

  20. Asha Hudson

    This course has been so helpful Josh! I cannot believe how much detail you have gone into. It’s going to help me refine my process and streamline my service. There is so much covered in this course that I had not previously considered.

    Thank you so much for putting together such a thorough and well-explained course. I am definitely going to be referring back to it from now on!

  21. Dana Wilson

    This course was amazing! When I got started with Divi I spent over a month trying to learn the process myself without any formal guidance, and in the 2 days it took me to get through this course I learned so much more than I ever could have taught myself. I never would have known that a lot of these steps even existed, but it’s clear that each one is so important. Highly recommend!

  22. cliffwishart

    Very helpful course, no need to recreate the wheel. Josh covers everything that needs to be done from start to finish. I have used this process to build sites and it works a charm. I Will not hesitate to recommend doing this course.

  23. Adela Mei

    Genius! I wish I had found this course years ago! Super packed with lessons, easy to follow actionable steps, and my favorite – checklists! I’ve downloaded the list and added some extras to personalise it – super helpful – no more having to remember everything in my head! The video lessons are thorough, and having a peek behind the scenes at how Josh does things is really insightful. I’m a really practical person and appreciate seeing how other people do things ‘for real’. Thanks Josh – another really good course. I have to say though – my favorite course so far is the CSS Course – that one rocked my coding world!

  24. Lisa Breedt

    If you are serious about running a successful web design business, then this course is a must! You will learn how to be more efficient, how to be organised and productive, you’ll achieve results faster with a streamlined workflow and become super professional, which ultimately will lead to more clients.

    This course is a practical, step-by-step, actionable blueprint which you can implement as you work through the content. Josh leaves no stone unturned, he is totally transparent and shows you the exact design process he follows using his 50-point checklist. I thoroughly enjoyed the content, the resources and have already had great success by implementing some of his teachings into my business. Thank you, Josh, for sharing your knowledge and experience through this high-quality course – I highly recommend it!

  25. Dean Rodriguez

    You can tell that Josh has put a lot of time and effort into developing his Web Design Process. It is very well organized and thorough.

    I’m thankful that I found this course early on in my web design journey. I learned so much about how to plan out my builds, when to get client feedback, and how to successfully launch a website.

    Josh teaches you the methods he uses to minimize revisions and make both the client and designer experience streamlined and as painless as possible. His Web Design Process Course also contains valuable resources and references to compliment the main course material.

    Adding the this process to your toolbox is a wise investment. I highly recommend this course!

  26. leo

    Thanks for making the last 2 months the best web design project I’ve ever had in my 6 years of web design. I’ve just tested out your web design process, going through it slowly because I’ve been applying every step as I’ve been going. It’s taken 2 months to get through the course doing it this way, taking a fully actionable approach. I now have this process in my project management system with a few tweaks to personalise it for me and my team moving forward, and it’s made me excited about my next project. This went smoother than ever. I have an excited client who I hope to get a good review from and it’s thanks to you dude. What an investment that course was when I charged my client 10X the price I paid for your course! I think that’s a pretty good ROI. I will be using this process as the foundation for all my projects ongoing, tried and tested.

  27. josesoto_1988

    Loved the course! I now feel confident to offer web design services to clients and have a general idea of how to make it from an idea to a live website without missing any important aspects. Excellent course for anyone that is starting out or feels lost at times and feel they forgot something during their website development process. Thanks Josh!

  28. Shannon Morris

    This course has been enormously helpful to me as someone starting out in web design. The huge task of doing a website for a client is so much less daunting with an organized checklist that has been refined over and over by someone who has been doing this for years! He doesn’t just tell you what the steps are, he shows you how to do each step in detail. I’ve used this process and checklist for three sites since taking the course and it has been a life saver – keeping me organized, on track and productive. Josh really is thorough and does a great job anticipating what questions people will have and addressing them. I highly recommended this course!

  29. Drew Baldridge

    Incredible A-Z (or should I say, 1-50)? A step-by-step approach to web design that will leave anyone taking this course with a level of confidence that no detail has been left out! I can’t wait to implement what I have learned into my next website design!

  30. Lori Brechtel

    As someone who has a lot of experience with graphic design who is really just beginning to apply it to WordPress site design through Divi, I really benefited from this course. It was exactly what I was missing—a step-by-step guide to the process of creating a website for clients. I am hoping to add web design to my freelance services, and I really feel empowered to begin with the lessons I learned in this course. Josh explains things in a way that novice like me feel encouraged.

  31. Chris Salvaggio

    JUST IN TIME – I have been helping people build WordPress templates for years as something that isn’t really in my wheelhouse yet necessary for some people. When I wanted to up my game on the web design side, I found myself feeling insecure about what exactly a professional process looks like. It wasn’t important to me what the specifics were or how it was done or what was used. The only thing I was after was ” A PROCESS” to get me started. I like Josh’s style so much, I went out and got a MAC Book Pro, and decided to copy just about everything he does. Now I have a complete process and since taking the course I have closed designed and launched my first website and was compensated professionally too. Thanks again Josh. I just bought every course Josh offers now just to be sure I am aware of all the gems he drops!

  32. Christopher Lynch

    Fantastic course! In depth yet very understandable and easy to follow due to Josh’s great teaching style. I look forward to moving through his other courses to keep building my skill-set.

  33. James Fortune

    While you could work all this out yourself, how long would it take you? And how many mistakes would you make? Josh has been gradually improving his methodology over ten years and now, generously, gives you the PROPER way to design a website.

    We work in a world where pinpoint accuracy and discipline is vital and Josh takes you through the entire process of creating a website for you and/or your clients. Brilliant and invaluable!

    I’ve checked out most of the other tutors in the DIVI world and, for me, Josh is the most informative and thorough plus his positive, bouncy and charming style really helps.

    Highly recommended!

  34. tanopri21

    The Web Design Process Course was very informative . I particularly enjoyed the Google search console module.

  35. Shelley Dodd

    This course filled in a lot of holes that I needed to make myself more efficient at web design – so I can make more profit! Very easy to follow and the video plus written info was very valuable. Will definitely take more courses from Josh!

  36. Christian van ‘t Hof

    This was a really great course that helped me to really organize my web design process. I always had my own way of doing things, but it was never structured. With all the info from the course & my own services I’ll be able to apply all to my company and new projects! Great job Josh! Thanks a lot!

  37. jonas.ritzmo

    Josh has a really good teaching style (love it) that is easy to follow and understand. He also explains everything very well and the guy really knows what he’s talking about.

    Thanks so much – a 5 Star rating!

  38. Caroline Harper

    I enjoyed this course. I have built websites for years, but have never documented the process, now I have my out SOP for create sites for clients! I also learned better ways of doing things, which will help streamlined my process.

    I use Beaver Builder, not Divi, but this course was still very applicable and worth going through. Thank you Josh!

  39. heidi

    Wonderful course! Josh explains everything in an easy to understand way!

  40. benfrier

    This course is worth the investment. It does not matter if you are new to web design or have been doing it for sometime. There is something to learn. I have been building websites, and the problem I had was it took forever. I was always having to remember if I forgot something, or going back to make correction.This course provides detailed step by step directions, and flow process. The old saying is time is money. Which for me, means more potential revenue. I used this process during a recent website build, I was able to be more detailed, professional, and confident with the service I provided. It is not very common that you learn secrets of the trade, and Josh is generous enough to share his experience and secrets of the trade.

    Thanks Josh, Keep up the great work.

  41. belencitax

    This course is so practical … In each step of the course you learn some new treasure or how to improve something you are not doing well.

    I have practiced everything learned in the Web Design Process course, and I really feel more confident than before, my workflow is much better and I’m saving lot of time.

    I bought the bundle and think it is the best investment i made this year. I am truly happy and proud of what I am getting and I am sure that I would not have achieved it quickly without this bundle.

  42. psereno

    This course was extremely helpful. Although I have been building websites for a few years now, Josh’s 50 steps has made it so easy. Each step completed leads to the next next step in the process – brilliant! Before this course, I completed websites, however my workflow was all over the place. This course is just what I’ve needed to organize my workflow and achieve more in less time!

    Each video was full of clear, concise and practical information. The extras Josh supplied in the modules are also extremely helpful.

    It is apparent that the success of his students is something he measures his own success by as he is most generous with his knowledge and experience!

    I would recommend this course to anyone who is serious about having a web design practice so that the use of your time can be efficient, all bases are covered and the end result is achieved with ease – this means a faster and more efficient workflow makes room for more clients!!!

    Thank you so much Josh!

  43. cherie

    So I only purchased Josh’s Webdesign Process Course because – well basically – most courses on the web are crap. That was my first mistake. I should have just bought the bundle!

    Josh has produced a great course! He explains everything well and doesn’t rush through each step. I really like how Josh approaches his work in a simple and logical way, making sure that the work he produces is great quality. So lucky he decided to share his skills with everyone smart enough to take his courses.

    Thanks so much – definitely a 5 Star rating!

  44. Noelle Steegs

    Josh, thank you for this thorough, high quality course. It looks like I’ll be starting my largest project in 5 years of web design soon. This is exactly the preparation I needed to ensure I can offer my new client the crème de la crème of work flows.

    The one approach that particularly speaks to me is how personal you are with your clients, using video – i.e. presenting your work, custom tutorials, and requesting video reviews from them. I definitely plan to take a leaf out of your book and get less camera/mic shy!

    Your Website Maintenance Plan Course is next on my list. Can’t wait to get started on that one.

  45. Eric

    Amazing. I’ve designed about 10 websites on Divi before watching this course. Wish I would have watched this before site 1 or 2. The additional resources are very valuable. I know this course wasn’t meant to be a “design” course…but following Josh through the process of designing a site I picked up on several little nuggets and some really big time-saving tips! At this point, my plan is to work through one course for every new client site I book. Can’t wait to buy both the CSS and CPanel courses. I did this course in one day straight. I’m starting the biggest client project I’ve had to date in two days…and can’t wait to use what I learned today to save me time and deliver a better experience and product to the client. Josh, thanks for helping me go further faster as a freelancer and for helping me look, be, and do better for my clients.

  46. elitus

    I love the way Josh explains everything, direct and easy. He also gives lots of resources, very helpful. This is my second course and surely it won’t be the last.

  47. Zach Thomas

    Love this course very informative. Josh has a really good teaching style that is easy to follow and to understand. I have honestly learned more from his courses then I did in college as a web design major.
