Noisyegg is a small company made up of a designer and developer, who have worked together over the last 10 years helping people set up their websites and start online.

We offer a range of high quality training content aimed at helping people with absolutely no web development history set up and maintain a website. Having worked in the web industry for such a long time we thoroughly enjoy helping people learn in the easiest way possible and are quite happy to always be at hand should any questions arise.

The main subject that we cover is WordPress development as we have found WordPress to be one of the most powerful and user friendly content management platforms out there, but as we are familiar with helping new business get started online we also offer an email marketing course and a SEO course complete with topics on keyword research and content creation to help you get started on your marketing campaign. Our goal is to help our students learn all they need to know in order to set their WordPress website up and confidently maintain it.

We also plan to add a complete HTML and CSS course aimed at total beginners for people who have always wanted to be able to create or edit their own webpages.

We hope you enjoy our courses on Udemy and remember we are only ever an email away.
