Brief course description
Update Feb/2015: WordPress Essentials for Business is now the highest-rated and one of the most popular WordPress beginner courses on Udemy. When you take the course you will see why: we teach you in a progressive way that allows you to quickly pick-up the basics in order to create your first professional-looking website in as little as 90 minutes — while at the same time covering 95% of the WordPress user-interface. The course will save you many hours of trial-and-error in setting up your first website — while leading to a far more satisfying result. And, unlike other beginner WordPress courses, we cover topics that are key to creating a professional-looking website, such as theme selection, graphics sources, and more.
The WordPress software has revolutionized the web design business; and yet, finding a course that covers all the basics, is oriented to a non-technical audience, and gives practical advice on the commercial services that are imperative to making an attractive website, has proven to be difficult. WordPress Essentials for Business is designed to fill that training gap.
As an added bonus, the “Hosting WordPress” video (video #6 below in free preview) will show you where to find high-performance managed WordPress hosting at about 1/3 of the going rate. Get your site under managed hosting for the same price as conventional hosting!
