Course Overview

This Shopify website optimization workshop is designed to empower you with the skills and knowledge needed to modify your shopify website’s theme, create stunning web pages and unleash your creativity.

We will start off by exploring the fundamental design aspects of a website and will delve into best practices for creating visual appealing and user-friendly websites. You will learn about the essential pages that all websites should have and how to use wireframes to help you plan and visualise these.

In the Shopify platform we will explore the theme settings and page builder and learn how to modify the websites design. We will cover the various options available in the themes settings and look at how to customise settings such as setting up site colours and fonts sets to transform the look of the website. We will also use the page builder tool to learn how to edit the layout and design of a webpage using sections & blocks.

This workshop will also cover how to create new pages & blog posts using custom templates, and how to structure your navigation menu for the best user experience.
