Your website will have pages including Home, About, Services, Contact and your very own Blog. You will be able to connect your Social Media Accounts (don’t worry if you don’t have any yet we can get you up and running). The course will give you a basic overview of Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and will teach you how to protect your site from spam and how to back up your design regularly.
This course is for:
· Anyone wanting to build a business or consultant website
· Anyone wanting to build a community project or charity website
· Anyone looking to start their own Blog
You don’t need any prior knowledge of Wordpress or any particular IT skills, you just need to have used a laptop or PC before. If you can get around the Internet you will be just fine creating your own Website!
This Beginner WordPress course is taught in small groups of no more than 6 people so there is plenty of time for questions and lots of support from our trainer, Stephanie.
