Why bother with WordPress training? The software is simple, right?
WRONG. While it is true that WordPress is relatively easy to navigate, most people without any web design experience are going to be completely perplexed in how to use it. The WordPress software has revolutionized the web design business; and yet, finding a course that covers all the basics, is oriented to a non-technical audience, and gives practical advice on the commercial services that are imperative to making an attractive website, has proven to be difficult. WordPress Essentials for Business is designed to fill that training gap.

WordPress Essentials for Business is a quick (90 min) but thorough overview of using WordPress to create a business website. It is designed for busy small-business owners and self-employed professionals who want to quickly master the WordPress software for the purpose of creating an attractive website that generates leads and sales.
We learn by doing as we build out an actual website for a client of ours, explaining and demonstrating key concepts along the way, such as themes, plugins, widgets, images, etc. Students should download the project files from "wpacademy dot com slash essentials" and then follow the tutorial on their own website, repeating the keystrokes and mouse sequences as they build out their own site. You can expect to walk away from this training with an attractive website and a solid understanding of WordPress fundamentals.
To take this course you will need a self-hosted WordPress website under your own domain and hosting account, and we will show you how to set that up. Domains cost about $10/yr and a hosting account will cost you an additional $7-12/mth, and will host all of your business and personal websites.
