WordPress Training Solutions

We have designed a beginners workshop which will take you from zero to comfortable with WordPress. The course has been tested on a number of non-WordPress individuals who successfully completed the course and have gone on to master e-commerce and SEO on their own WordPress site.

The journey begins with the story of WordPress and the 5 minute install in action. Once you are up and running on your own we will move on to the admin area and dashboard.

We explore the differences between pages, posts and taxonomies. Plugins are up next with an overview of the plugins, how to install and free vs paid for. Themes will be the last category you cover and we will install a blank theme to show you how they work and then install a professional paid for a theme with front end builder to show how quickly one can build up pages.

Wrapping up we touch on advanced topics and eCommerce.
