Description

Wordpress is a simple yet powerful website building program that allows you to build and manage your own website with a small amount of training and effort. One of the principal advantages of WordPress is that you are in control. Unlike remote-hosted scripts such as Blogger and LiveJournal, you host WordPress on your own server. Installation is very simple, as is the configuration. Unlike other software programs, there are not a million files to chmod nor are there dozens of templates to edit just to get your site set up and looking the way you want.

In this course you will:

* Learn how to build a high quality, functional website in no time at all!
* Save time and money by building your own website and managing changes.
* Market your products and services on a professional website you build yourself!
*You will be able to edit and modify your website yourself without depending on others, and without spending tons of time and money.

Thanks to our 5-module "Wordpress Website Training" Course, you will learn and master how to build your own website.

 * We cut the theoretical and complicated aspects of programming, and bring you an easy to use content management system that will help you accelerate the process.
* We will help you learn how to do it in a totally practical and simple way, step by step, directed by an expert.
