In this tutorial, I show you my process of creating a website from scratch and I am doing this by using the Visual Composer plugin for WordPress. I have not prepared anything prior recording this tutorial to present an actual process that you could use to design awesome websites!
Please note that you need Visual Composer to follow this tutorial.
1# Install WordPress – locally or hosted
You will need to install WordPress locally or on a hosting account. In this tutorial, I use a local server and I show you briefly how I do that. I have a more in-depth tutorial to set up a local server here.
If you plan to publish your website immediately I would highly recommend using a hosted server. This gives you the opportunity to share your website creations with your peers and you can see immediately what it looks like on different devices!
#2 Visual Composer
Visual Composer is a page builder plugin for WordPress that is a great tool for those who are looking to easily create professional websites without advanced technical skills. In my opinion, Visual Composer and a free default theme beat any pre-made premium theme that often costs double the price of the Visual Composer plugin.

#3 Get your free child theme and pictures!
I am using a personalized child theme that is based on the twentysixteen theme by WordPress. You are free to use this theme or use any other theme as per your personal preferences.
Download the theme for free here, no subscription required 🙂
