Software version used in the course:
This course is for those individuals who want to learn how to use WordPress quickly and easily.
Serial website-builder Lisa Newton will take you through the steps of buying a domain, choosing a host provider, connecting the domain name to the host, choosing a WordPress template, uploading the template, editing your WordPress site – including quick hints and tips. We’ll edit the template – looking at the menu headings, the footers, changing the font, adding pictures, adding images, adding contact forms, adding social media icons and building the site to look more than half decent.
Your course tutor is very passionate about showing people how to create and edit WordPress sites, following many years of trying to get a website done herself, but to no avail. Various run-ins with ‘professionals’ who would charge a small fortune or just make a bad job of it, meant that she was ‘forced’ to just learn the skill herself. Initially, it wasn’t easy and she has had personal coaching to learn the hints and tricks which you will be shown to create your own site.
This is a very cost-effective, way to learn about WordPress and to get your own website done. If you are tired of waiting on a ‘friend’ or professional to do your site for you, if you can’t seem to find anyone reasonable or within budget or if you can’t find a good course which will just ‘break it down’ and show you ‘exactly what to do’ – then you have arrived in the right place.
I know exactly what you’re going through. I understand your frustration and I want to help you to learn a new skill and become self-sufficient, so that you need not ever have to beg or ask or rely on anyone else, ever again to get your website done.
If getting your website done has been on your ‘to do’ list forever, if you are frustrated at what your site looks like, and you just ‘know’ it could look more professional, if you are tired of trying to understand WordPress (which isn’t particularly intuitive) – save time, effort, stress – and jump on this course and be shown the ropes. Take a shortcut to success.
Believe me – when I first got coached, I was shown how to make a site, and the designer did about 15 pages for me, and then showed me what to do to add pages… Once I understood it, I explained it to my intern, who then added pages and that site now has over 400 pages! Anyone can learn this stuff. Anyone can do it… but without that initial help as to how to set up a WordPress site, and what all the buttons do… I admit, I would still be lost today!
Join us on this course. Save yourself a load of hassle and headache! You will be more than delighted that you did!
