Description

When you’re looking for step-by-step instructions on creating a website using WordPress, this WordPress Video Series will save you a lot of time and money.

I recently held a two-day Internet Marketing Workshop, Website Design Mastery Weekend, where I showed a small group of small business owners how to create a web site and blog using WordPress.

It was a step-by-step presentation where I answered all of their questions.

As a result of the LIVE workshop, I promised the group I would put together instructional videos that they could refer back to over and over again, as if I were there still teaching.

It took me a while to do it, but the result is amazing.

I have used my vast years of web design experience and encapsulated it into 40 videos that take you step-by-step and shows you how to create a self-hosted wordpress professional looking web site that ranks high on the search engines.

There is nothing out there that compares to these instructional videos because it’s not just “how-to” create the web site, it’s also why you should do some of the things I cover, and when it’s the best time to do it.

Take the course now and see how this course is different than any other. The course is perfect for you if you're brand new to the Internet, or are a seasoned professional.

Take the course now.
