For most people, building a website is expensive, time consuming and frustrating. If you get it wrong, you've wasted your time, money and you face the prospect of starting again. But there is an easy solution. Beyond the Basics is a bundle of all our Joomla courses and it includes lifetime support. Our tried and tested website formula has been perfected over 17 years. You really can build your own website quickly and get it right the first time.
Nobody likes membership sites. You have to continually pay for access and support which ends up costing you a small fortune.
OTHERS: monthly membership for 1 year @ $25 per month = $300
If you quit after your first year and you need to review something or ask for support, you have to pay again!
SITE SKILLS: one payment which includes:
Beyond the Basics is yours for just $150
From my experience of today's Internet world I find it very unusual to subscribe for a life time membership to a web service that means exactly what it says. I signed up for lifetime membership in June 2011, since then I have seen a lot of changes on Joomla and in all that time I have seen Richard Pearce constantly updating the tutorials to ensure we understood the new Joomla software / systems. I have never been asked for any more contributions to cover the updates to the package I purchased, therefore I must say Richard is one of those rare people on the Internet if not the world. A man with both honesty and integrity. From my experience anyone can buy his services with confidence.
Thank you so much for your Beyond the Basics video courses! I needed to rebuild a large site for my historian son - he created one in the 90's using Microsoft Front Page that was broken and unusable years ago. After doing research and deciding on Joomla, I read every book out there. It wasn't until I watched your tutorials that it all finally made sense to me and I was ready to go (I've watched each twice and I learn something new every time!) I could not have done it without you - you are a fantastic teacher and made the complicated easy to understand. Thank you SO much!
I have been watching and taking notes on ALL the tutorials!! I am SOOOOOOOOOO happy to have bought them!!! They are so very well explained that I can´t stop learning and practicing. Thank you VERY much for the tutorials .. I had NO idea how to use JOOMLA (I am not at all a programmer ... I am the designer/creative type .. ) .so i had been doing things the old fashioned way ... but I was looking for something open source and also sooo much USABLE as JOOMLA ... that I can´t stop!! THANK YOU ;)
Your presentations were of the highest caliber. Sure wish that I had found it six months ago. I have gone through all the lessons one and a half times and plan on going through them one more time before I attempt my website. Thanks again Mate!
You are not only a great instructor, but also a great customer service person. I can’t say enough about your fantastic web site, your tutorials and the service you provide.
I'm in the middle of watching the lessons but I had to pause to say thank you. This is a Joomla gold mine that you have created here and for such a reasonable price. I'm going to be a truly skilled Joomla developer thanks to you. I commend your effort and wish you continued success, especially since I'm benefiting from it. I had attempted to learn Joomla on my own and gave up soon after. Persistence in trying to learn it finally led me to your tutorials. I was able to build a fully functional site after that; it seemed so easy after your tutorials. I came back and enrolled in Beyond the Basics knowing I will be a better Joomla developer for it. I am so excited at all the things I'm learning. Thank you so much for not making it too costly; hopefully other businesses learn from you that you end up getting more customers when you price products or services reasonably.
How much do I pay after the initial payment?
Nada, Zip, Zero, Zilch, Nix, Nothing!
Lifetime sounds good, but how do I know you're not going to bring out a version 2 and charge for that?
That's not how we operate. Lifetime updates mean when we produce a new version of a course in this bundle, you get access to that too, at no extra cost. Some of our customers have been with us since 2008, when we had just 12 lessons. Since then, we have released dozens more, which have been given to existing customers for free.
So do I get access to everything on your site?
You get access to everything in this bundle. Our courses covering different topics are not included in this bundle.
Are there any pre-requisites?
You need an understanding of how computers work and the fundamentals of how to use a typical website.
Do the courses included in this bundle contain the same content as the stand-alone courses?
Yes, they're identical.
Is there a free trial?
There are a few free lessons available for each course. If you wish to preview these, please use the free trial option that is available on the individual course pages.
Can I watch the lessons on a mobile device?
Yes, tablets and mobiles are supported. In fact each video is encoded at various resolutions and our platform will stream the most appropriate version for the device you're using, potentially saving you bandwidth.
Can I download the lessons?
Yes. Please keep in mind that as per our terms and conditions, these can only be viewed by yourself.
How do I request support?
Each course has a discussion area where you can ask questions relating to that course. If you have a more general question, please start a discussion in our forum.
How do I know you'll stick around to support me?
We've been doing this longer than most. Our Joomla training started back in 2008. Our parent company has been operating since 1995! We're in this for the long-haul.
Do you have a money-back guarantee?
Yes. We are so confident that you'll benefit from our training that we include a lifetime money-back guarantee!
What currency do you use?
Prices displayed are in US dollars. When you pay, you are charged in US dollars. Like any online transaction, if your account resides outside of the USA, your provider will convert to your local currency and may charge an admin fee as well.
How can I pay?
Visa, Mastercard, American Express or PayPal.
You'll usually find me staring at some sort of screen, but when I escape, I'm either juggling four kids, or zipping around on the scooter, or hiking somewhere, in my home town of Sydney, Australia.
