The secret to coding like a boss?

You don't have to know it all...

Let me guess:

  • You've taken coding courses, but you get stuck — and then frustrated — because you don't understand a lesson.
  • You know your way around Google, but you often find yourself with more questions than answers.
  • You feel like a fraud calling yourself a WordPress developer because you feel like there is so much you don't know.

You are not alone. I've been there, too!
And so have other Creative Coders just like you.

What if you had one place to turn to for answers — where you could learn WordPress coding with manageable, straightforward video training, anytime you want?

Imagine this:
  • You can learn at your own pace, on the topic of your choice, with a library of courses and coding projects to choose from — pick and choose what YOU are most interested in.
  • You can ask an experienced WordPress developer (that's me!) for help when you need it and request the video training you want to see. It's like your own private Google — but with more answers!
  • You can peek behind the scenes of an established WordPress development business and see exactly how I work, mistakes and all.

That's exactly why I made Creative Code Club!
The secret to coding like a boss is not to have all the answers, but to figure them out along the way.

Let's figure out the answers together.

I'm Lisa Butler, and I help people build better websites with WordPress.

As a web developer, I’ve built more than 100 websites on WordPress and spend my days knee-deep in CSS, HTML, and PHP turning beautiful designs into functional websites.

I believe that if you have a passion and curiosity for code and love problem-solving, you have what it takes to become a WordPress developer. I'm here to share what I'm learning and doing with you so we can figure out the answers together.

Inside Creative Code Club:

  • Manageable Courses

    These aren’t your average coding courses that require 8 weeks of lessons to see results. Our courses are typically 1-2 hours long and focus on one specific aspect of coding with practical applications. Plus, you can track your progress so you can complete on your own time without losing your spot!

  • Step-by-step Tutorials

    With our projects library, you can code specific website elements in short, step-by-step video tutorials. You’ll watch my coding work in action, and I’ll talk you through it each step of the way so you can apply it to your own projects, complete with code you can adapt to your needs. Plus, bookmark your favorites for future reference!

  • Behind the scenes

    When it comes to development, there isn’t always one right answer. The tools you use are often based on personal preference. In our private blog, I share a behind-the-scenes look at what I’m working on in my business and the reasons behind my choices. Plus, I’m answering your questions about freelancing with WordPress development!

  • Ask a developer

    The problem with coding is we’re often too close to the project to see where our errors are, and sometimes we just don’t know what we don’t know. Think of the Ask a Developer page as your personal Google — I’ll do my best to help you out and get you unstuck. Plus, you can review other member questions and see my answers!

Freelancer or weekend coder,
we have something for you:

  • Master child themes and styling with CSS to put your own unique touch on any theme.
  • Missing features? No problem. Learn how to add menus, widget areas, and other WordPress elements to any theme.
  • Get started with theme development using Underscores and take full control over your code.

Plus, mark your progress and save your favorites for future reference.
Our courses are made for the busy creative — because your to-do list is already a mile long!

I love learning things about coding. I haven't take the time to fully learn to code, but these tutorials help me to learn things on my own. I feel much more comfortable fiddling with the code now. It's not terrifying anymore!

Still not sure?

Can I do this if I don't know how to code? +

Yes! I’ll walk you through each piece of code step by step so you understand exactly what’s happening and how to adapt it to your needs. And if you’re still not quite comfortable? You can copy-paste code snippets from each post until you’re ready to write your own code.

Let me tell you a little secret about coding: We’re all just figuring it out as we go along, even the most experienced web developers. While there are certain best practices that I’ll teach you throughout each lesson, there is never one right and perfect way to write code. The only way to get better at coding is to play around with it and see what happens. If you’re willing to do that, you’re in the right place!

I want to be a freelance WordPress developer, is membership right for me? +

Absolutely! This is a resource I wish I had had when I was starting out. I would find bits and pieces of code through Google, but I wanted someone to actually show me how they worked, step by step. That's exactly what I do in my videos.

I also get a lot of questions about freelance WordPress development, and that's why I've added a private blog to Creative Code Club membership to share my thoughts on these questions. They are probably questions you've had yourself! I know I certainly did in navigating the freelance world. I loved reading the personal experiences of people doing what I wanted to do, and so I want to share that with you.

I already feel pretty comfortable with code, will membership still help me? +

Yes, that's exactly what our coding projects library is for, to share tutorials for beginners and experienced coders alike. We have members who are already working as freelancers in WordPress and request more advanced tutorials from actual client projects. Plus, if there's anything you'd like to learn, I'm all ears and can put it on the schedule to address in the future!

I'm not a developer, I just want to tweak my website. Is membership right for me? +

Absolutely! We have a lot of content that will help you tweak any WordPress theme — and do it the right way.

You may wonder if it's worth doing it yourself or it you should hire it out. Naturally, that depends on your situation. DIY is fun and will save you money, but like anything in your business, you will hit a point where it’s time to hire a professional. There’s only so much we can do on our own in areas outside of our expertise. If you’ve got the cash flow to hire it out, and you have no desire to learn how to do it yourself, by all means, hire it out!

However, keep in mind that your website is fluid. Your business and vision will grow and change, and your website needs to reflect that. That's why I think it's important for every business owner to have at least a basic understanding of code and how their website works. When things go wrong, as they often do on the internet, you’ll be relieved when you can fix things yourself immediately instead of waiting on a web designer’s next availability. You'll also have the power to adapt your website to your needs so you can grow your business faster.

Are there any additional costs? +

I personally use Adobe Creative Cloud and will be sharing screencasts using those tools. You can sign up for a free 30-day trial, or I'll share free alternatives when I can. From time to time I may also recommend premium plugins, but usually with free alternatives.

Do I have time for this? +

Naturally, with any skill you learn, you'll get better, faster, if you can commit more time to learning and experimenting. But I create every lesson with the busy creative in mind, and you can mark your progress to pick up where you left off at any time. Most of our courses are 1-2 hours long, broken up into lessons that are typically 10-20 minutes.

Will this work with my theme? +

Of course! The concepts I teach are standard to WordPress and should work with any theme. I'll also show you the right way to customize your theme so that you don't lose your customizations when there's a theme update.

Do you offer refunds? +

My refund policy is simple: Try out the lessons within 14 days of your purchase, and if membership is not right for you, please email me for a refund.

Is there a Facebook group? +

Creative Coders and non-members alike have access to my Facebook group where we share and troubleshoot code, get feedback, and help each other out. I know how frustrating code can be when you get stuck, and a fresh eye can make a huge difference in the process. Plus, helping your fellow coders can help you learn more about code!

You are welcome to tag me in the Facebook group anytime, but as a Creative Code Club member you also have access to our private Ask a Developer section, where you can submit questions directly to me and review my answers to other questions.

What if I decide to cancel my membership? +

While I'll be sad to see you go, I understand that you may need to cancel your membership. You can do this anytime on the Creative Code Club site in your account page.

I also understand that sometimes life gets in the way and you may just need a short break. That's why there's also an option to pause your membership and resume anytime you're ready. You can also do this anytime on the Creative Code Club site in your account page, you don't even have to contact me to do it!

Is any content time-released (drip-fed)? +

No, you have immediate access to all previously published content from the day you join.

How long can I access the content? +

You may access all content published prior to and during your membership for as long as your membership remains active. If you cancel or do not renew, you will no longer be able to access the content inside the Club.

What if I have another question? +

You're welcome to contact me via this form or email me at hello [at] elembee [dot] com and I'll be happy to answer. Also, I encourage you to spend some time reading my blog, watching my videos on YouTube, and signing up for my weekly email list before you sign up for a subscription — that will give you a great idea of whether or not my teaching style is right for you!

I feel so powerful now. It used to be I’d spend a whole day trying to figure out how to Jerry rig something and now it’s like I imagine it and it’s done a few minutes later.
