Free WordPress Tutorial Video Course

Free WordPress Tutorial Video Course PERFECT FOR BEGINNERS

My free video-based WordPress course will take you step by step from 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.

Brenda Newhouse - Web Designer and Web Strategist

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.
