Getting Started with WordPress

Ross Beyeler, Founder and CEO of Growth Spark

Wednesday, March 13th from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

WordPress is the premier content management system for those seeking an easy, user-friendly way to set up and maintain a website.  In this class, we'll walk through the basics of getting your site live quickly, and cover best practices in :
- selecting a website design
- content strategy
- using the WordPress dashboard to manage and maintain your website
- fundamentals of SEO in a content management system.

We'll also touch on common problems and pitfalls to avoid. By the end of this lesson, students will walk away with working WordPress sites for their own businesses.

Prerequisites
Having or planning a business will provide a helpful context for the class, but is not a requirement. This class also does not require familiarity with coding and design. However, students will need to bring their own laptops.
