Introduction

I discovered WordPress in 2007. In 2008, I seriously dove into it and was creating sites for clients. I started teaching people how to use it in 2010.

Prior to that I owned a successful marketing and graphic design firm for 20 years. Because of this experience I bring a lot to the table when it comes to helping people with WordPress.

You can only wonder how affiliates can possibly be tied in with restaurant bathrooms and Adam Sandler. 
Affiliate marketing can be confusing for the visitor. They do not know if you are just trying to make a quick buck.

This has been a great solution for a lot of people that I know who use WooCommerce. 
The option to add-on features and other products to a specific product or service in WooCommerce can increase your sales even more.

In today's post I am hoping I can help you stretch out your creativity a bit when it comes to limitations that WordPress plugins or themes create or that appear constrictive. This really happens a lot with themes. We look at the homepage and think, "well, this spot is for (you fill in the blank), nothing I can do about that".

In this post I show you how I took a feature of the WooThemes Hub theme and the Our Team by WooThemes plugin and turned it around a bit to make it work for me.
In this example, I show you how the plugin Our Team from WooThemes and the Hub WooTheme offers more flexibility than you might have thought

Some food for through when creating your post title. 
When writing titles identify the topic, write a working title, outline and write the post then go back and brainstorm alternative titles.

I spend a lot of time teaching and helping beginners learn and understand WordPress. But I also spend just as much time with users, blogger and power users - those that need to "bump it up" with their blog or website... that is why I have done this.
You need to learn WordPress, but also make it work for you. With my WordPress packages you get added-on value with sessions and email access
