If you're a do-it-yourselfer and want to learn how to build and manage sites/blogs built on Wordpress, you're in luck. Several of my colleagues have created comprephensive and excellent training programs that take you step by step through the details of how to set up a site on Wordpress.
Recently I wrote a short review about Beginner to Blogger, an affordable video training for Wordpress offered by Traci Knoppe.
My online marketing mentor Tom Antion has also released a Wordpress ecourse. Tom no longer uses anything but Wordpress to create ALL his ecommerce sites (and he has hundreds!). I didn't get a review copy. I bought the program so I could check it out and let you know what I think.
True to form, Tom Antion over delivers. The course is delivered by email with links to pdf documents and videos that take you step by step through choosing a domain, setting up your hosting account, installing the Wordpress software and then through all the nuances of choosing a theme and the right plug-ins to make your site optimized for search engines and to work as a selling machine.
Tom knows how to make money - he's a millionaire several times over - so any training he creates, I get it and I've never been disappointed. Check out Tom Antion's Wordpress Website Creation Ecourse. It's only $97 though I'm pretty sure that he'll be raising that fee soon. It's worth several times that.
Don't want to set up a blog yourself? You can get a very simple blog set up for FREE (that's right, I said free) when you purchase a hosting account. You must have a hosting account in order to have a wordpress blog live on the web.
Disclosure: the links are all affiliate links which means I make a small commission if you invest in one of these programs. I personally know each of these experts. I have either worked with them, trained with them, experienced their teaching, and/or have used their products. That's the only way I would make these recommendations for you.
If you prefer to have an expert build your site, my go-to expert is Jody Jelas at Big Fish Web Design and if you are looking for coaching on how to effectively use your blog as a marketing tool, let's talk. I have a blog consulting program that may be right for you. Use my support desk to submit your request and we'll connect.
If you don't have a blog yet, what are you waiting for? No matter your budget, there's a way for you to get a blog set up fast and easy in just a few hours.
