This course was designed to teach anyone how to use wordpress to build websites by creating two amazing and professional looking websites. I believe that the best way to learn is by doing, and that is what we will do. This course operates under the assumption that the student knows nothing about wordpress, or building websites for that matter.

WARNING: If you are very well trained in Wordpress, this is not the course for you.

If you have been interested in making a website for your company, or just want to learn how to build wordpress websites, this course is for you. We will jump right into the process by selecting a domain name.(I will give you some pointers on how to pick out the proper domain name) We are then going to setup a hosting account, and if this seems daunting, don't worry because I will walk you through every step. It is then a short skip and a hop and our first website will be up and running. We then chisel down to the bedrock of this course, building our website. The first website will be built using a 100% free theme. After building an amazing and responsive one page business website, we will begin a second website. This will serve as a virtual resume, or online portfolio for the student. Before splitting ways, I will give you some of my newbie money making tips for beginners.
