"This is one of the best Word Press courses you will find. Gregg is a phenomenal instructor and his lesson plans are well designed. The lessons are very easy to comprehend and engaging. I started this course with no knowledge nor understanding of Word Press and now I'm super confident in my ability to produce quality websites!" --William Hopkins
"So far this course has been the best I have experienced on Udemy! Gregg's videos are clear and concise without any fluff. I have messaged him in the Q&A section and received a response within 12 hours! Can't wait to get to the end!" --Walter King
No better time than now, and only increasing
With WordPress powering more than 25% of all websites in the world, there's never been a better time to build an income and a business around it.
You're here because you want to master WordPress, right? Good idea. You're in the right place. And, you can do it without learning any programming or coding.
While WordPress is open source, and because of that has thousands of developers building resources for it, it still takes quite a bit of learning to become a master at building and managing websites with it. It's not just learning the WordPress software, there's a small amount of graphic design knowledge needed, hosting and server management, troubleshooting broken sites or problems by hacking into the back end and server setup, and properly staging development environments around new sites or when performing updates and changes on existing sites.
"What a great course! Good explanation and a lot to learn, friendly and very quick support. I'm only at the beginning and I'll leave another review later after I finished this course. I'm sure there is much more to learn!" --Adriene
Why am I qualified to teach you?
Through this course, I'll teach you everything I've learned and mastered
through 10 years of building, managing, migrating, and hosting WordPress websites.
"He is concise and well spoken, without dumbing it down at all. As a total newbie to Wordpress, I'm thankful he's offering this! 3 lessons in and it's great so far." --Jamie Rasmussen
My business lets me work on my own schedule, manage my home workspace
without a boss or a manager, and gives me an unlimited ceiling for profit and income and time freedom.
Without learning to code or programming anything, I'm able to leverage what's already been done with WordPress to create modern, robust and functional websites for clients of all types.
I'm hoping you'll get to the same awesome place in your work life. Let this course give you the head start you need to increase your income fast.
"[Gregg] has covered more areas than what an average course would deliver, this is clear reflection of Greggs' experience in the subject. He has gone above and beyond to cover every aspect of WordPress for a clear and concise understanding for a beginner.
Gregg is probably one of the best instructors I have come across on Udemy and expert in the subject. Well done and Thank you for an amazing course."
--Mohamed Fawmey Mohamed Vinodh
Many of my best and biggest clients have come from "abandoned" WordPress websites, where the client's website designer or developer has left the scene. My ability to get in and restore, fix, redesign, and continue to manage WordPress websites brings me lots of instant and recurring income.
You'll learn how to do all this in 20 hours of easy-to-follow video content, fun lessons and challenges.
During this course, you'll learn everything you need to know to start or improve your own WordPress website business.
The WordPress Ecosystem
"Straight forward and neat! Just what I need to step up the freelancing ladder. Highly recommended." --Mr. Graciano Jose Reyes
It's probably no surprise to you that the WordPress community has thousands of really talented and creative developers, designers and technologists working within it. And you may know that much of their work is available as open-source resources that will enable you to build your own business.
The open-source philosophy doesn't mean that no one makes any money. On the contrary, by sharing much of what we, as a community, create, we all prosper much, much more, because we all share in expanding what's possible with WordPress.
By spending zero-to-little money, you can stand on the shoulders of those who came before you, to create your own business niche, by learning the skills and secrets presented in this course.
"Instructor explains everything very clearly, and in detail. So simple to learn and understand in this course. Looking forward to finishing all of the lessons with much excitement. An A+++ instructor and course." --Mekus

Hi! I'm Rob. I have a degree in Mathematics from Cambridge University and you might call me a bit of coding geek.
After building websites for friends and family for fun, I soon learned that web development was a very lucrative career choice. I gave up my successful (and sometimes stressful) job as a teacher to work part time and today, couldn't be happier.
I'm passionate about teaching kids to code, so every summer I run Code School in the beautiful city of Cambridge. I also run the popular web hosting and design service, Eco Web Hosting which leaves me free to share my secrets with people like you.
You wouldn't believe the freedom that being a web developer offers. Sign up and find out for yourself why so many people are taking and recommending this course. I genuinely believe it's the best on the market and if you don't agree, I'll happily refund your money.
Sign up to my courses and join me in this amazing adventure today.
Hey! I'm Gregg Davis. I'm a teacher and a student, an artist and an athlete. You might call me a self-taught computer geek.
Working with computers has always been playtime for me, since the 1980's when, as a kid, I would see what I could do with a Radio Shack TRS-80.
I'm a long-term skateboarder and a nationally-recognized snowboard instructor and coach, and I've been creating websites for clients since 1996. In snowboarding, I've been teaching students for 25 years and studying teaching and learning in my own professional development. I started building websites exclusively with WordPress in 2006 and I've built a thriving business using open-source and inexpensive tools.
By leveraging other people's awesome code and software, I've been able to create a business that provides chunks of instant income from creating websites, and recurring and ongoing income through hosting and managing website for clients.
The freedom that this business offers is truly amazing.
The demand for reliable and consistent website design and management is only growing - and WordPress is the most popular platform in the world. Powering more than a quarter of all the websites across the entire internet, supported by thousands of developers who are creating open-source code you can leverage and use in your business, there's no better platform.
