This course will teach you how to work with the amazing Wordpress platform by watching how I build a full website.
The Learning Experience:
In this course you will not listen to theories or long explanations, you will simply learn how to work with Wordpress by watching how i configure themes and plugins and fit the website to my own business needs. It's best to watch each lecture and work on your website at the same time - this is a great way to learn!
The Steps of Creating a Website In This Course:
I will walk you through all the steps - from signing up with a hosting company and registering a domain name, through installing Wordpress on your website and finally building a professional looking website for your business or a personal blog.

What Will I Learn To Do in Wordpress?
What Else Does The Course includes?
In addition to learning how to work with Wordpress, you will also get a list of must-have addons, known as plugins, so you can later on expand the functionality of your website and engage with your audience by building a mailing list, adding social sharing buttons and much more.
How Long Will It Take Me To Create a Website With The Help of This Course?
You can have your website up and running within a few hours, and if your free time is very limited - you could learn for about 15-30 minutes each day and complete your website within a week. The lectures are short and easy to follow, and were structured in a way that they would fit those who have a full day to work on their website as well as those who only have 15 minutes a day. With that being said, "throwing" a website online on the World Wide Web is not enough - once it's ready, the hard work begins - it's your responsibility to continue expanding your content by writing articles and sharing your knowledge and services online in social media platforms, so your website will gain credibility and audience.
Why Taking This Course?
If you've tried learning how to work with Wordpress before, but got confused with all the configurations, themes, plugins and the various possibilities that this platform offers, here is your chance to watch how it's simply done by a web designer who works with Wordpress for the past 8 years. It's easier than you think, and moreover - it's FUN!
Wordpress is a platform that can serve anyone who wants to build a website and has basic computing skills. You don't need to pay thousand of dollars to a webdesigner and a webmaster to create a professional-looking website anymore, thanks to the great abilities of Wordpress which make this platform so flexible and understandable.
Join the ride - you're going to love it, but hey - Wordpress is addictive, so watch out! :-)

My Most Favorite and Useful Plugins
Hi, i'm Maya.
I've been building websites since i was 15. What started as a hobby, turned to be my profession 10 years later.
I mostly work with Wordpress, and besides creating websites for customers, i've started giving lectures about this system a few years ago as well.
When i found out about Udemy and the opportunity to teach online, i was thrilled - as i love teaching, and Udemy gives me the option to reach students beyond the boundaries of my country.
After years of bulding websites with Wordpress, i decided to dive into the mobile world and found it to be mysterious and totally different from what i knew up to that point.
Unfortunately i realized that since this niche is quite new, creating mobile apps was far more complicated and expensive than what i was used to with Wordpress. Most softwares and tools available today are very expensive or complicated to understand and require many hours of studying. A moment before giving up, I found a platform that does exactly what I wanted - lets me create an app in a similar way to building a WordPress website! The platform is easy to understand, easy to operate and most importantly - very enjoyable to work with!
I decided to create a course that teaches how to work with this platform, it's called "Create a Native App in 8 Days – Easy as Creating a Website!".
If you don't have the time to learn how to create a full native app, you can take the "WordPress to App – Turn Your Website Into an Android App" which will teach you how to turn your current website into a native Android app which will act as a mirror to your website. This is a flash course, easy to complete. You'll be able to see your app in the store by tomorrow...!
Other than that, you can take my thirdcourse and learn how to create beautiful, professional video montages. This course is FREE.
My moto in the courses is KISS (Keep It Simple, Student!); in my everyday life, i try to find ways how NOT to spend hours over hours of learning how to code and program, by finding the "shortcuts" that people already created, like Wordpress. Then, i take what i learn and pass it over to my students, so you can create amazing things too.
I hope you will find the knowledge you were hoping to gain here, and show me examples of what you have created with the help of my courses - that's what would satisfy me the most!
