WordPress is the most popular website builder in the world, powering over 25% of the worlds websites. It is popular due to its ease of use, set-up and it’s simplicity in adding in new features. However, there is still a learning curve and many people are left with a WordPress website and expected to know how to use it!

Our 1-2-1 WordPress Training Sessions Include

Some areas of WordPress are quite generic. Areas such as plugins, pages and blog posts are very similar in design across all themes. The differences come when we are dealing with text editors, or ‘visual composers’ that are designed to be easier to use, but can be a little daunting if you have never seen it before. Underneath are some of the things that we teach on WordPress, as well as any unique attributes that are specific to your website.

Downloading & Installing WordPress

  • Finding hosting providers and learning the options available.
  • How and where to download WordPress.
  • How and where to install a MySQL database.
  • How to connect a WordPress website to the database.

Posts, Pages & Plugin

  • Learn the differences between pages and posts.
  • How to blog and how to find relevant topics to blog about.
  • How to optimise and add images/galleries to posts and pages.
  • What are plugins and how to make sure they are correct for your requirements?

Templates And Designs

  • How WordPress themes work.
  • Where to source WordPress themes from, and what you should be looking for.
  • Changing theme options such as colours, fonts and page layouts.
  • How to update themes and other components safely.

SEO and Marketing

  • What is SEO and what techniques are available to make the website better?
  • Adding Google Analytics and Google Search console.
  • Monitoring data and what to look for.
  • Adding social media to the website and best posting practices.

Website Expertise

Lots of features of WordPress are generic, but the devil is in the details. Each WordPress website will be using a different theme and have different ways of doing things, which inevitably will be the part that you need to use the most. This is where the bespoke training really reaps the benefits.

Our WordPress experts are more than capable of figuring out how these sections work and can demonstrate and explain how these sections work, making sure that you are capable of making these changes yourself going forwards.

We had a team training day on Wordpress and associated tools, led by Billy. There was coffee along with great information and feedback during constant back and forth. The value of the time spent far exceeded the actual cost. I would recommend these sessions for fresh perspectives, honing skills and insights. Thanks Billy!

We have been able to keep up the training during the restrictions of the last year, all be it over Zoom, which has been great, but nowhere near as good as meeting up in person and really getting to grips with the issues holding them back.

Phone or drop in. We’d love to talk to you!

We are open Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
