WordPress is one of the first words an online beginner will hear. This short article explains what WordPress is, why you need it and where you will find a cheap and quick tutorial on how to use WordPress with confidence.
What is WordPress?
WordPress is a tool that is used worldwide to create websites. It is an open source program, freely available online. As a content management tool, WordPress allows you to blog and edit and add images and videos, publish and save. WordPress is loaded with easy to use features, drag and drop images is just one.
Who needs to know how to use WordPress?
Are you an aspiring entrepreneur dreaming of making an income online? Maybe you are a stay at home mum or dad, a student or retired. Would you like to make money working from home? You need a website and you need to know how to make your website function. Knowing how to use Wordpress efficiently on your own website will save a lot of time and money. We all know how expensive Web designers are. When you know how to implement your ideas to a website, you have full control.
Isn’t website building all about coding and HTML?
Years ago, you had to learn to code, you had to be a geek! WordPress changed all that. It is so user friendly that even a beginner with no previous experience can learn how to manage a WordPress website, without coding. I started with zero knowledge and created this website. I enjoyed the learning process so much, too.
