SPI 229: Tips for Building a Simple and Effective Website and Brand with Jess Catorc

By Pat Flynn on

One of the best parts of my job is hearing from listeners about how the Smart Passive Income Podcast has helped them transform their careers. Today’s guest is one of those listeners: She’s Jess Catorc, a web designer who’s built a successful business teaching fellow entrepreneurs how to build their own websites.

Jess grabbed my attention in an unconventional way: She sent me a personalized video that introduced her, her journey as a business owner, and how SPI has helped her along the way. I was floored by how quickly Jess has turned her passion—designing for the web—into a thriving business empire that includes online courses, a podcast, and a video series. I had to hear how she’s done it.

In today’s episode, not only will your hear the story of Jess’s business journey, but you’ll get her expert advice on building a website as well. She’ll share her favorite platforms and tools, her tips on hosting and security, and the most common web design mistakes she sees entrepreneurs make. You’ll also hear Jess’s advice on articulating your personal brand and conveying it consistently across every channel—something every business owner should learn.

If you’ve got questions about improving your own website, listen in—Jess is offering up a host of tips you’ll be able to put into action today.
