Who is the course for?

I created this course especially for bloggers and small business owners. It’s full of plugins I use myself, to help you get your WordPress website functioning smoothly and enhance the user experience for visitors to your site without employing a web developer.

Learn from a self-taught small business owner and blogger – for people who want to keep it simple, building a website without getting too technical.

What Do You Need to Get Started?

All you need is a working WordPress Installation with administrator access. If you’re not sure how to get set up, take a look at our other courses.

The course starts with learning how to locate, activate and install Plugins using the WordPress Platform. The next stage covers Plugins to assist with administrative tasks such as Backups, followed by Analytics.

We then move on to more user-centric Plugins for design, navigation and user Experience, including the WordPress Jetpack Plugin. Finally, we learn about Spam Protection and Updates.

Course sections feature activities to help you put the knowledge you’ve picked up throughout the course to use.
