Build Your Business Website in a Day with WordPress

Wednesday, 16 October
10 am – 4 pm



WordPress is the premiere blogging and content management system for those seeking to build a blog that's easy to set up and maintain. In this workshop, we will build a simple blog using free WordPress themes and walk through the basics of getting a polished site live, quickly and cheaply. With an emphasis on the non-coder, we’ll look at free templates as well as premium resources that require little to no coding skills. By the end of the day, you'll have a blog ready to launch.


You'll learn all about:

  • key blogging and social media strategies that will get your blog off the ground and noticed online
  • how to update your blog without having to rely on webmasters
  • building a Search Engine Friendly Blog using WordPress and free themes


This workshop is aimed at business owners wanting to set up a website for their company. To make the most out of the class, please come with a logo or header graphic prepared, 5 pages of basic content of your business (including an 'about' page, what business service you are offering and one blog post about your business) and lots of images to use on the site.

If you want to integrate your social media presence (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, etc.), have all these accounts set up before the course.

Please bring a laptop, and the aforementioned materials.
