“Semi-DIY” WordPress Workshop
Event on 2013-04-12 09:00:00
It's back again! We had such a great turn-out from our last workshop, we decided to offer it again.
Don't miss Tech Nick Consulting's "Semi-DIY" WordPress Workshop!
Do you have to become a web designer to be an effective marketer? No.
Should you know how to do some of this website stuff yourself? You betcha.
The popularity of WordPress has exploded over the past few years! Web designers and clients alike use WordPress because it gives clients more control over their page design.
Now that more and more people have WordPress sites, I have seen many small business owners and marketers falling into a new category: The Semi-Do-It-Yourself'er.
Semi-Do-It-Yourself'ers love marketing and are highly passionate about their business, and they have a desire to be able to make many updates to their website on their own.
Who This Workshop Is For:
Semi-DIY business owners are those who have WordPress websites, and consider themselves reasonably tech-savvy.
If you're the type of person who likes to take the DIY approach, this workshop will cover all the basics of editing and maintaining a WordPress website.
Many of my clients tell me that they feel torn between two competing interests. They really enjoy doing their own marketing and keeping their website up to date, but they have a business to run. They don't really have an interest in becoming their own web designer (and they may even use one from time to time), but the want to exand their knowledge of WordPress to be able to edit their site quickly and intelligently on their own when needed.
This 4-hour workshop will help small business owners and marketers learn to do more with their website on their own, without focusing on the boring technical minutae that can be left up to the pros.
