Testimonials from community members
A few success stories from members of the community who have had real results.
Don’t miss out on the Website Builders Collective, it’s a brilliant resource. You’ll sharpen your skills and enhance productivity while working with GeneratePress and GenerateBlocks.
You’ll also have access to a wealth of pre-designed templates and patterns to inspire and elevate your website builds. The Community is a fantastic place to seek advice, exchange knowledge, and problem-solve.
Thanks to the WB Collective I have learned so much from a web design point of view with GeneratePress and GenerateBlocks. There is really a lot of material to grow. From the tutorials to the templates to Mike’s professionalism in giving the right advice.
It is because of this community that I built my first website and now I’m immersed in other projects. If you want to start building better websites, I recommend it.
Up until now, I have used a combination of Astra or GP with Beaver Builder to build sites, but from now on, it will be GP and GB for all new projects. Hats off to you for putting this all together.
The community is full of so much helpful info and resources. It will help me be more productive with my time and produce a higher quality of work.
If you find yourself watching YouTube videos here and there, Mike’s community is a comprehensive one-stop-shop for all things GeneratePress and GenerateBlocks.
Mike’s tutorials cover everything from planning your website build to optimizing it and going live. The templates are great for starting client projects, as well as seeing how he builds with GenerateBlocks.
If you are a GeneratePress and/or GenerateBlocks user looking to build websites more effectively and sharpen your design skills, the collective may be a great fit.
If you have found value in my previous course or YouTube video tutorials you will find value in this community.
The majority of the tutorials and templates will be created with GeneratePress Premium and the Free version of GenerateBlocks.
All templates will be built using the WordPress block editor and GenerateBlocks and can be used with any WordPress theme.
Not at all. The tutorials and templates will be built using GeneratePress premium and the block editor along with GenerateBlocks. Any custom CSS or PHP used in the tutorials and templates will be thoroughly explained.
I am mostly thinking of beginner and novice users when creating the tutorials. For example, I will not be making tutorials on topics such as Woo Commerce customization, integrating ACF or a LMS plugin, etc.
If you’re looking for heavy GP & GB customization this may not be for you. The tutorials will primarily be based on using GP & GB, better design practices and website performance.
Simply because doing all of this work for free is not a good use of my time. I plan to provide way more value than the cost which will keep everyone happy and allow the community to continue to grow. I feel like professional templates, tutorials and community support is well worth $5 a week.
You’ll receive a welcome email and receive access to the community and all the resources. Once you are logged in you can view the welcome video explaining all the membership areas and how to navigate them.
The course platform is podia.com which you can access from any device. All of the content will be accessible through your Podia account after signing up.
Absolutely! The templates I create are designed to help you build websites that impress your clients, so you’re free to make a copy and customize it to your needs. The only limitation is the templates can not be resold as a similar product.
The checkout uses Stripe for subscription payments. Your membership will be automatically renewed each month for $20 while enrolled in the Website Builders Collective.
All of the tutorials, templates and resources posted by me have a comment section where you can ask questions and leave comments. I log in to answer all comments and questions at least once a day.
If at any time the support you require goes beyond the scope included in the membership, I offer premium support services to members.
That’s no problem! I want everyone in the collective to feel like they are receiving plenty of value. If at any point you no longer want to be a member you can cancel, there is no commitment.
Of course, you can sign up for a month whenever you like based on how much time you have to be active, or simply to save some money.
I have quite a few members who do this and catch up on all the tutorials and templates every couple months.
About your instructor
Hello, my name is Mike Oliver. I started off designing surfboard logos in the mid 90’s and have been a designer now for almost 30 years. About 10 years ago I built my first website with WordPress, and this has been my primary focus ever since. I’ve been a contributor to GeneratePress & GenerateBlocks for several years now and have enjoyed helping other GP & GB users through courses and this community.
Why did I create the Website Builders Collective?
After the launch of my previous GeneratePress & GenerateBlocks course, I realized that most of the tutorials eventually become obsolete. With GP, GB and WordPress constantly evolving, I thought an ongoing training model would work better than a one time course. This will allow us all to stay on top of the latest features and updates.
The GeneratePress community is incredible and growing like crazy. I thought this would be the perfect way to deliver new tutorials, my latest templates and continue to learn together. If this sounds like something you want to be a part of, sign up!
