Are you struggling to put your site live? Learn Wordpress in a day 1-on-1
Fri 19 May 2017, 09:00 – 19:00 BST
Are you struggling to put your Wordpress website live?
Do you have an idea for a website project or blog but don’t have the time or skills to set it up? How would you like to learn how to build a website or blog in Wordpress in just 1 day by an experienced Wordpress developer?
I believe the best way of learning is 'by doing'. That’s why during this 1 day intensive course, you will be in the driving seat designing and developing your own website from scratch.
No experience with Wordpress? No problem, I will teach you the exact setup I use each time I create a website for one of my clients.
Wordpress is the most powerful open-source publishing platform, powering over 25% of all websites and blogs.
By the end of the course, you will have a live Wordpress website and have added at least a homepage and 1 blog post. You will also have the knowledge on how to edit and update the rest of your website by yourself in the future.
Who is this course for?
Total beginners or business owners who want to learn Wordpress while at the same time getting their Wordpress website started.
You will be putting your project live and learning Wordpress at the same time. As this is a 1-to-1 course and not a group training course we can cover much more in just 1 day.
