Description

Do you have a great idea for a classifieds website but have no idea where to start? Tired of trying to use expensive classified software or not technical enough to custom code a solution?

---

In this beginners course, I'll run you through the basics of setting up a classifieds website using Wordpress.

We'll look at:

  • Choosing a business name
  • Registering a website name
  • Setting up hosting
  • Installing Wordpress
  • Uploading a custom theme
  • Customising the basic settings

This course, along with the support you'll receive from your hosting provider and the theme seller, will provide exactly what you need to start your classifieds site today and start earning money through paid listings, ads and sponsorships. I welcome your feedback and look forward to helping you turn your idea into a beautiful, functioning classifieds website!

Note: The cost of running a full classifieds site is around $110 upfront and as little as $5 per month for hosting.
