Not long ago I wrote an article targeted toward business owners and new bloggers detailing a checklist of what to consider before starting to build a website. That website checklist was sparked by the experiences I often have when performing freelance project work for clients. It was meant to be a reference tool for those new to WordPress and blogging in general, as well as a reminder to myself of important basic steps to remember when planning any new development projects.
Today I am announcing that
I’ve taken that concept further with the release of the Setup for Success video course which is now available on WP Pro Business and completely free. Even if you’ve already got you’re own WordPress site up and running I believe the concepts and steps I discuss will be beneficial as you continue to grow your site.
Why is This Course Different from Others?
I know there are many other WordPress courses and how-to blogs, articles, and videos available online. What I’ve seen in many is that assumptions are made by the creators that readers or viewers are already familiar with certain terminology and basic web development concepts. I saw an opportunity to offer true step-by-step instructions.
There are five videos in this first course and each includes step-by-step videos, resource links and downloadable pdf docs of the course material. Each video covers a different topic, from planning to the installation of WordPress.
This is the first course of many and each will build upon the concepts, lessons, and WordPress skills learned in the previous ones.
What You Will Learn
- The Seven P’s (Planning)
- Domain Names and Hosting
- Taking Action
- Preparing to Install (Tools I Use)
- Installing WordPress
Is It Free? Why?
Yes it is. Because it’s the right thing to do and my way to give back and “pay it forward” for all the assistance and guidance I’ve received from the WordPress community through the years.
C’mon, Really Free?
Yep, really free:) One thing you should know is that I do ask for a first name and email in order to access the course. I’m aware that this might turn some people off and I’ve given a lot of thought as to whether I should go that route. In the end decided that it made the most sense for what I hope to accomplish and provide with these courses.
I will only email you when new course materials and tools are available. I am using MailChimp as my email signup provider and you can always unsubscribe at anytime.
