This course will teach you how to build websites with WordPress--and how to use WordPress from top to bottom!

You can choose to watch all 4 hours of video or skip to the good parts :) Then of course if you need a refresher, more information, etc. Know that we have four hours of details, instruction and more to help you learn WordPress inside and out!

Did you know that WordPress powers nearly 30% of all websites in the world? Now you'll know how nearly 1/3 of the internet works. That's incredibly powerful!

Do you want to master WordPress? Perfect. I'm going to help and guess what, you can do it without learning any programming or coding.

You will be able to Build a Website within a few hours once you take this course:

What kind of website? What kind can you imagine? How about a:

  • Blog
  • Day care
  • General business
  • Veterinary
  • Startup website
  • Photography
  • Travel
  • Cafe
  • Hotel
  • and more!

Well, you'll be able to do it!

Now, it won't be simple. It will be relatively easy, but you will learn how to be able to build these websites on your own and get them online. 

And you know the best part? You don't even have to know how to write code. No. Not a single line. But if you can, the sky is the limit. 

Who is this guy anyway?

I'm a Chief Technology Officer at a publishing company that has been building websites on WordPress since 2008 and have worked on websites for Fortune 500 companies. Those are crazy and complex and this course is not going to teach you to build those websites. However, you will be able to build beautiful websites that server the needs of smaller businesses and also bigger ambitions. 

I do not want to miss out on telling you that you will also learn:

  1. You'll learn WordPress inside and out
  2. Learn how to setup a webserver on your computer and run WordPress on it
  3. Setup themes
  4. Get the best plugins you need to start to build almost any kind of website you can image
  5. Move your local website to live hosting so the world can see your creation!
  6. A total of more than FOUR hours WordPress training!


I have a 60 minute WordPress SEO for Beginners video. I gave this lecture in Buffalo, NY for a WordPress Bootcamp. It's yours to enjoy!
