“Hi, my name is MartieDread!” *waves*
If you’re a web designer by trade, you will probably hate me. (I still like you).
Currently I live in a town called Bangor, in Northern Ireland, and I am the person behind letsbuildwp.com.
You can find me on any normal day, recording videos, blogging, creating websites, beatboxing, or just generally having a good time… (I don’t get out much!)
There’s no reason to worry about me though… I get a kick out of teaching you guys!
I’m serious, that isn’t one too many zeros. (1 million people). The next goal is 2 million!
Then I have also taught a further 10,000+ people to use WordPress for free over on Udemy.
When I think about these numbers, it really amazes me! #grateful
If you’re interested. You can find me on Twitter @MartieDread.
(I always make sure to reply to messages when I’ve got the time).
Why Let’s Build WP?
The main reason for me starting Let’s Build WP was because I was sick of seeing people getting charged a TON of money to have a website built for them.
Especially when I knew that they could do it themselves for a LOT less…
The LOWEST quote I got for a website when asking around told me I would be looking to pay at least £1,000 (UK Pounds). That’s around $1,400 in US Dollars!
I was shocked to say the least…
Well that was about 4 or 5 years ago.
This then empowers them to create (or better) their own businesses, and get some awesome ideas off the ground… and it also makes me feel GREAT!
Helping people is my true calling in life. Period.
If you watch some of my tutorial videos you will see that building a fully functional and professional looking website with WordPress can be done in as little as one hour.
With absolutely no previous experience at all!

Martie, what a cracker of a video. It’s a REAL step by step video on how to build a site using WordPress which covers EVERY step and doesn’t skip steps, by assuming that the viewer already knows how to do that procedure. Well done!
