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.

SEATTLE AND BELLEVUE WA WORDPRESS WORKSHOP

I teach a variety of workshops to beginners and users on WordPress, WooCommerce, WooThemes and Genesis Child Themes, to name a few. You can see all my upcoming workshops here.

BUSINESS AND CORPORATE WORDPRESS TRAINING

Does your business use WordPress? Or are you considering it? Let me help you and your employees learn how to get the most out of WordPress or if you are already using it, how to grow your site. Learn more about my Group Training.

If you organization is using WordPress, or thinking about it, I can help your staff and volunteers learn how to have more control over your site. And if your members would benefit from a in-person workshop, let me customize it to their needs. Learn more here.

I have read a few books on SEO. But I'll tell you, if you are a casual WordPress user or blogger, this is one that will finally make sense to you!

#SEO   #searchengineoptimization  +Yoast 
This eBook is one of the best I have found out there that will help beginners and average users build up the SEO on their WordPress site.

The second in a series on storytelling
Cleese’s whole take on creativity and storytelling is to give yourself the time and space to play with ideas and ponder.

Do you think monetizing your site means slapping up spammy ads?

Wonder how the smart bloggers and site owners sell without turning off their readers?

Would you like to earn money from your site by only promoting things that are really useful and can help your readers in some way?

Keeping your blog or your site is hard work. You collect your readers and visitors one at a time. After they spend some time on your blog, they will figure out if they trust you. And if they don’t, they won’t listen to you.

What should you do about that?

Many bloggers make one common mistake: selling products and services they don’t believe in.

You’ll learn:

how big a blog audience you need to start making money

how to apply some of the basics of the most successful revenue models for blogs

how to sell without compromising your values and why the more narrow your niche is, the easier it is to monetize

how to find your audience and market to them

how to drive more affiliate sales

There will be plenty of time for Q&A as well.

Are you thinking using WordPress for your business blog or website? Or did you try to get one started and ended up only more frustrated then you had hoped? From start-ups, to service provides to small online shops, you will find a wide variety of solutions to create the site you are dreaming of with WordPress.

It is limited to 30 attendees and will be on a first-to-sign-up basis.

Please sign up only if you are sure you will be able to attend. (There will be a “wait list” so if you do sign up and find out later that you cannot attend, please let me know as soon as possible.)

I also recommend that you bring a laptop that can be connected to wifi. That way if you have any specific question as we delve into WordPress, you will have access to your site.

Thanks to our generous sponsor GoDaddy Pro, this workshop is FREE!

In the this 3-hour workshop, you will learn:

How to choose your hosting service and the options you have

What the WordPress dashboard looks like, including an overview of posts, pages, menus and categories

Whether a blog is the right for your business

How to choose the theme that will fit your business's online goals. We will be looking at some WooThemes and Genesis child themes

What plugins and widgets are—and some helpful plugins to improve your site's functionality

Tips for keeping your site updated and secure

Options for selling your products and/or services online

There will be time for questions as well.

You must register on my website!
