You will learn how to drive valuable traffic to your new site

Getting your site online is the first step to benefiting from the great wonders the Internet can offer you.

However..

It really doesn't matter how pretty your site is if no one gets to see it.

Success on the Internet is really a numbers game, the more visitors you get the more sales you get, plain simple.

So in this course I devote 8 whole chapters to teach you how to get your site noticed, promoted, and loved by the world so you can get those coveted eyeballs looking your way and help your online business thrive.

But Wait! there is more..

As a bonus I'll:

- Let you peak inside my own website's traffic stats and explain them.

- How to install a live chat to talk to visitors in real time.

- How to install a cool rotating ad banner to showcase your main products.

- How to create a good looking Facebook page widget for your site to increase your followers.

- How to set up a free Newsletter to keep in touch with your audience and generate more leads.

- and to top it all! just to make sure have a good time learning..

I'll even serenade you with the first WordPress song ever, composed and horribly sang from me to you.. with luuuvvvv

(PS: If you sit through the whole song you'll get bonus points  )

This course has 51 chapters shot in HD video amounting to over 4 hours of instruction where I pour all my knowledge accumulated over the years.

My own company, Grumo Media runs on WordPress and I am happy to say than I run a very profitable online business using this awesome free platform.

Now I want to share all I have learned with you so you can become successful online too!
