"WordPress for Beginners: The Ultimate Guide to Starting a Blog with WordPress"

Have you ever wanted to start a blog, but the thought of coding and html intimidates you and has always prevented you from getting started?

If so, then I know exactly how you feel.

There's nothing worse than watching all the pro bloggers making thousands of dollars in the comfort of their home, while you're stuck at work at that 9-to-5 job, working to the bone, and never feeling appreciated for all your hard work.

And to make matters worse, as your bills start piling up, your wife is always asking you when your going to get that next raise? You can see the doubt in her eyes and you can tell from the tone of her voice that her patience is wearing thin.

You end up feeling frustrated because you're trying to figure out a way to bring in some extra income and nothing seems appealing...

Until now the only thing that inspires you is to create a blog so that you can make passive income and work at home in your PJ's.

The big problem is that most web designers charge you at least $2,500+ to build a custom website. So even if you created one you would spend hundreds of dollars to have them maintain it for you.

That's why today, I'm thrilled to be able to share with you the "WordPress for Beginners" - Ultimate Guide to Starting A WordPress Blog.

My name is Anthony Tran and I've coached thousands of people just like you how to create a blog and make money online.

In this WordPress training course, I reveal the exact steps you need to follow in order to start your very first blog.

Whether you're planning to blog as a hobby or you want to create a profitable online business, the "WordPress Access Pass" gives you the pieces of the puzzle you need to finally make your dreams a reality.

Now what makes this course different to any other program out there, is that this isn't just a collection of ideas or principles. It's a simple, STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE.

All you need to do is watch these short videos, apply what you learned and YOU WILL start blogging today.

Let me explain to you exactly how the "WordPress Access Pass" course is laid out.

Once you purchase the course, you will get access to the first module that will walk you through the basics of a blog website. Next I'll show you how to buy a domain web address. After that I'll show you how to get a web hosting account and how to set it all up.

I also show you how to install WordPress with a few simple clicks, and show you how to setup your blog so that it is ready to go.


You'll learn how to customize the look and feel of your blog with theme templates so that your blog looks professional and fun.

After you have customized the appearance of your blog I will show you how to start building pages on your website like an email contact page and a navigation menu.

Once that is complete I will then show you how you can create a custom logo for your website for as little as $5.

Here is the best part! You will learn step-by-step how to write your first blog post, edit the content, add pictures, videos, and links so that it is completely engaging to your readers.

To put things into perspective after you finish this course you would have saved hours of frustration, time and thousands of dollars.
