ARE BECCA LUNA’S COURSES LEGIT OR A SCAM
You’ve seen Becca on Tiktok talking about how much money she makes from her web design business and you’re thinking, there’s no way. This MUST be a scam influencer. I’ve seen the chatter in the forums over the last few years, with other designers hating on her and her courses, code-bros in her comments, and in my opinion, lots of jealous people who haven’t cracked the code on making GOOD money as a web designer, like Becca seems to have done.
I BOUGHT ALL OF BECCA LUNA’S COURSES
Not at the same time. But she got me. I bought into everything she said. The woman is a fantastic salesperson. Unlike me, it comes very naturally to her. And more power to her! I had previously designed websites for myself on WordPress (NEVER AGAIN), Squarespace, Shopify, and even dabbled in Wix to see what that was about (not a fan).
After hearing Becca talk about Showit (another web design platform with no code and no limits to what you can create) I knew I had to try it out. I signed up for the month-free trial and was hooked. I created websites for our own business but had never offered my services to other people. After our Etsy business exploded at an unhealthy and unsustainable pace, we closed shop after four years and I wanted to change directions into web design.
SO I PURCHASED WEALTHY WEB DESIGNER
It wasn’t cheap, but I figured I could make my money back pretty quickly once I started selling websites. Is WWD an in-depth course on Showit? No. Her CEO of Showit course is great for this. Her Wealthy Web Designer course is perfect for someone looking into starting a web design business. Even if you have a general idea of how to go about it, I loved being able to see HER proven, and highly successful process.
Since Becca launched her courses, there have been many other designers who have done the same. I’m sure all of them are extremely helpful and there is a course for everyone, no matter where you’re at in your web design journey. But one of the things I loved most about learning from Becca, was she inspired me to think differently. Her websites didn’t look like everyone else’s. They were soooo unique and creative and inspired me to think outside the box.
If you look up “Showit website” or “Showit designer” on Instagram right now, it looks like every photo is from the same business. Everyone looks the same. Aesthetic beige, neutral websites that in my opinion, lack personality. Nothing wrong with the neutral/beige girlies, but I quickly realized, if I want to stand out, I need to get away from the neutral aesthetic ASAP.
More than anything, her courses gave me confidence.
Confidence in my work and confidence in my process. She basically holds your hand and walks you through her entire process- from landing clients in the DM’s (which WORKS) to each step of the design process and offboarding. I don’t know about you, but being able to peak behind the curtain and see how someone else does it is invaluable. It validated things I wasn’t sure I was doing correctly and then saved me so much time by not having to figure out how to onboard a client or how to present your work to clients etc. Wealthy Web Designer is a no-brainer for me. I really feel like it laid the foundation for my web design business.

SO WHY ALL THE BECCA LUNA HATE?
If you scroll her comments on Tiktok, you’re probably thinking, gosh why so many haters!? I think it all comes down to jealousy. You’re either the type of person who feels like there is only so much work to go around and take her success as a threat. OR you have an abundant mindset, you’re inspired by what she’s done and see her success as proof of what is possible.
I can honestly say, taking her courses have changed my life. Wealthy Web Designer is a no-brainer if you’re wanting to start a web design business. You can check out pricing and all of the details here. If she has a bundle sale going on, BUY IT! Her Passive Passion Project course saved me so much time and so much of a headache trying to figure out how to sell Showit templates on my own. There are so many questions and roadblocks you run into that it nearly seemed impossible to figure out how to sell templates, how to deliver the files, etc. without this course.
The Site Canvas Library feels like cheating the system and is worth EVERY PENNY. You can literally use her designs and make them your own. Use them in client projects or use them in your templates that you sell! You don’t have to build anything- you literally add her already designed canvases to your website. They come built out in desktop and mobile. Like I said, it doesn’t feel fair to have access to this, so take advantage of it!!
MY BIGGEST STRUGGLE IN MY WEB DESIGN BUSINESS
Where to find web design clients. She goes over this thoroughly in Wealthy Web Designer and it’s super helpful. But there is one major difference I’ve learned after watching her throughout the years. She has a natural gift of not only being wildly creative, but she could sell anyone anything. To me, building websites became the easy part. Finding clients wanting to spend thousands of dollars wasn’t as easy as she made it out to be.
Not that Becca was being misleading by any means, but after speaking with a few of her students, this was always the common thread. She makes it look so easy being able to sell a 4k-10k website and it turns out to be a little harder than I thought! If you’re good at sales, you can find success right off the bat like she did. But for those who are not natural salespeople, it takes a bit more time and patience. Even getting out of your comfort zone and trying to put yourself out there. Which, to me, this is my least favorite thing in the world. I’d rather hide behind my computer!
Now if she comes out with a sales course, I’m all in. Because I want what she has!! She seems fearless and confident and it’s much easier to come across as an expert when you have that kind of personality.
Bottom line, Becca Luna’s Courses Are WORTH IT
If you came hoping for some BL tea, I’m sorry but I don’t have any for you! I am truly glad I invested in her courses and I would not have the business I have today without her. It would have taken me so much longer to figure out things on my own. Buying her courses is like buying a roadmap with the exact steps you need.
Check out Wealthy Web Designer and Passive Passion Project (click those links to see if she’s currently running a sale) and see if you think it will be a good fit. I personally, can’t imagine where I’d be in my business without them. DM me or email me if you have questions!! Hopefully, I can help.
