In this interview we have Shyam Sundar, CEO & Founder of Websitelearners,
an online course full of easy-to-follow tutorial videos that help you build a website
as fast as possible. We looked into their initial days, and how they have evolved since then to the point of having videos watched by thousands of people every month.
Please Present Websitelearners To Our Audience. What Services And Products Do You Offer?
At Website Learners, Our main goal is to help you build websites without any hassle. We make creating a website as easy and accessible as possible for everyone. On our YouTube channel we teach web-design to our viewers who are beginners and don’t have the time to learn coding. Currently we offer web-hosting services through our product WebSpaceKit & our Ready-made website platform MakeYourWP. In Addition to that, we also offer courses on WordPress for people who want to learn more about web-design.
What’s Your Story? What Sparked The Idea, And How Has It Evolved So Far?
The idea for Website Learners started when I was watching a video tutorial on ‘how to make a website’ which had a ton of views on youtube a couple of years back. While watching, I felt the quality of the video could be much improved, to save viewers time & also increase their confidence that they are capable of doing it. So this sparked the idea for the 1st video we made & published. It took around a month to make a 5 minute video and when we published it, the video took off and became the top video for the search ‘how to make a website’ both on youtube & google. That is when we knew that we had something great in our hands & decided to launch a dedicated channel ‘website learners’ for teaching technical things which people often find it hard to do.
What Is The Mission Of Websitelearners?
Our main goal with WebsiteLearners is to make building websites simpler & easier for everyone. We want to make Learning as simple as possible and make it easy for people to do the things they want to accomplish online.
What Makes You Stand Out From The Competition?
Our unique way of teaching web-design and other technical things on YouTube give a deeper understanding for our visitors & makes it easier for them to build websites. This is what motivates us to keep building our ecosystem around web development through our products, WebSpaceKit and MakeYourWP which offer the best user experience for our clients.
Who Are Your Typical Customers’ And What Are The Pain Points That You Help Them Solve?

What Trends Are Going To Shape The Future Of Your Industry?
With my experience building Website Learners, I’ve got to say online learning is growing at an extremely rapid pace especially since the impact of covid. We’ve seen this impact directly on our Youtube channel with the burgeoning increase in video views and it is not going to stop anytime soon.
Also Students of this generation are tired of book-based learning & want to learn directly from the experts in the industry through hands-on practical learning. So at Website Learners, we’re looking to evolve into a complete e-learning platform and help school and college students learn web design & upskill their digital skills.
