This course begins with the most basic overview of WordPress – what it is, how it’s used, and why it’s now the most popular web publishing platform available. We’ll cover the benefits of using WordPress over other content management systems using live demonstrations and case studies. I will also cover the business opportunities within the WordPress community. I’ll show how to effectively and quickly build a WordPress-based business either full-time or on the side.
At the end of the workshop participants will be able to:
- Explain what WordPress is and why it offers a distinct advantage to other web platforms
- Understand the primary features and benefits of WordPress
- Understand what opportunities exist for employment in the WordPress community
- Apply the principles of building a freelance WordPress business to their own business (WordPress based or not)
