This workshop is for Individuals, Companies and Non-Profits who are looking to save hundreds of dollars annually by maintaining their own WordPress websites.
As a company, how you are viewed by the public and your customers is as important as the product or service you provide, customer service, and the integrity of your company. Staying current in your customers’ "digital" eyes lets them know that this same attention to detail carries through to what you do.
For Individuals taking this class will also allow you to add a highly marketable skill to your resume, or make yourself more valuable to your current company.
This workshop is for those of you who have taken on, or have been given the responsibility, for maintaining a WordPress website for your company.
The process of updating a website can feel intimidating, but there is really very little you can do to “break” a WordPress site.
You’ll leave this class with the confidence to:
• Add pages and schedule blog posts
• Create links to other websites and to your own PDFs
• Add “anchors” (links that jump to a particular place in the text)
• Alter the navigation menu
• Change slideshow images
• Create a form
• Change your sidebar widgets
• Learn legal best practices (Intellectual Property, Privacy Policy, Terms of Use, etc.)
• Learn to do basic Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
In this 90 minute workshop you will learn how to perform all of the basic WordPress functions and gain resources for help in the future, should you need it. Register now, and start gathering the tools you need to be more successful in your business, your job, and your future!
Please bring your laptop or tablet if you have one to follow along, or to illustrate questions you may have. Please E-mail Lynn Amos at with any additional topics you would like to have covered.
