My free video-based WordPress course will take you step by stepfrom the very beginning through launching your website using WordPress.
The WordPress tutorials I have created for you are broken down into bite-sized training videos, taking you step by step from choosing a domain name to customizing content and colors. I assume you know nothing about WordPress or creating a website before taking this course, and that's a perfect starting point.
My goal is to show you how to set up a professional WordPress website without having to learn website code.
I've been teaching absolute beginners website design for over 11 years in a college environment. I've also had small business website clients for 17 years. This means my teaching is streamlined from years of experience to focus on simplicity and what you really need to know to get your website online successfully on your own.
Here's What You'll Get:
10-Day WordPress Course
Over 50 video tutorials that walk you through building a site in WordPress, from beginning to end.
The tutorials are delivered by email over 10 days.
The tutorials are yours to keep forever.

My mom told me that if it sounds too good to be true, it is. This course is free? Really? How is that possible?
I believe everyone should be able to get the basics of a website online on their own if they so choose. I make my money doing more advanced things for my clients, like marketing strategies and ad campaigns. If a time comes when you would like that sort of help, I hope you'll think of me. But if you never use my paid services yet find this free course valuable, we're all good. I love teaching and love it when people use what I've taught to further their dreams.
I hate SPAM and promise to keep your email address safe. This means I won't be selling it to anyone. Ever.
