Can You Really Learn WordPress in One Day?
You can find free WordPress training on YouTube and many other places online, but the questions are, can you really learn WordPress from instructions that are scattered all over the Internet? And what is the quality of that training? Do you really have the time to waste on poor quality or inefficient training?
There are basically 3 ways in which people try to learn WordPress…
The first way is from a book like “WordPress for Dummies”. Yes, those Dummies books are easier than most technical books and packed with content, but learning to use software from any book is extremely difficult to say the least.
You read page after boring page and by the time you get to chapter two you’ve already forgotten what’s in chapter one. Does anyone ever really make it all the way through any of those books?
There is a much faster and easier way…video, which leads us to method #2, YouTube videos. I’ve checked out many WordPress tutorial videos on YouTube and what I’ve found is that it’s very difficult to learn when the instructor speaks English as a second or third language. Or he may have clear English but the video quality is so poor you can’t really understand what he’s doing.
I also couldn’t find a set of videos that go in any kind of logical order. Even worse, some of the videos are just a mouse cursor moving around the screen with loud music and no explanation of what is going on. Of course, there are some very good videos made by someone who actually knows how to teach, but you have to dig through a lot of coal to find a diamond, so to speak.
The third type of WordPress training that people look for is paid courses or workshops. This can be an excellent way to learn, but the problem here is that most teach everything there is to know about WordPress including the code. This takes time and it’s great if you want to be a web developer for a living, but what I find is that people don’t want to spend weeks or months learning.
They just want to build a site for themselves or their business and get it up and looking good as soon as possible. They’d rather spend their valuable time doing what is most important and that is adding content to their site such as blog posts, articles, videos etc.
I’ve developed and refined a method that will help you learn WordPress in one day.
It’s called the WordPress Crash Course. What makes it different from other courses and methods is that It only teaches what is essential for you to get a site up and running as quickly as possible. The lessons are very detailed, professionally edited and refined so it’s super-easy and geared for non-technical people. It’s some of the highest quality WordPress training that you’ll find anywhere online.
