Description of the WordPress for Beginners Course

You’re here because you want to create your own WordPress websites, right? 

This is the perfect place to start. This complete course is designed for beginners like you who have never built a WordPress website (or any website for that matter).

WordPress is the perfect tool for creating a fully customized website for any purpose. Whether you want to create a blog,  a personal portfolio, or a business website to sell your products and services, you can do it with WordPress.

While WordPress might seem scary from the outside, once you get started, it’s fairly intuitive. Everything from hosting to installing a theme, then actually building your first pages can be learned in the first few lessons of this course.

With this course, you don’t need to actually pay for hosting to practice with WordPress. I’ll show you how to create a free temporary site so you can follow along.

Why learn from me?

I’ve been building WordPress websites for years. Just like you, there was a time when I was a complete newbie! I was honestly scared of starting a WordPress website because it seemed so daunting.

Now I love WordPress! I wouldn’t recommend using any other web-building tool.

I still remember what it is like to be a beginner, and I’ve kept that in mind while creating this entire course. I walk you through every process step-by-step to make sure you understand things clearly. And if there is ever anything that is confusing, just let me know and I’ll create more lessons that explain or walk you through myself.

Who is this WordPress course for?

This course is for anyone brand new to creating WordPress websites. If you have never built a website before, great. If you’ve built a website on another platform like Wix, Weebly, GoDaddy, or others, that’s fine too. This course is not for people trying to learn to code a custom Website. In this course, we’ll learn how to use the thousands of themes and plugins already out there to design our own custom websites.

Who is the target audience?

  • You are someone who wants to build a website for your business, hobby, or personal life.
  • You want a website that can be fully customized, but done so easily.
  • You want someone to walk you through the entire process of creating a WordPress website from the very beginning to publishing.
  • You also want help designing a website that works, that is modern, and the viewers will love.
  • You are NOT someone who wants to build your own custom WordPress themes (this is not a WordPress development course)

Requirements

  • You don’t need any experience with WordPress or with building a website.
  • You will need a working computer and a modern browser like Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.
  • You will need internet access to watch the lessons online, or can download them on your computer for playback.
  • You don’t need any experience with programming languages like HTML or CSS.
