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.

    Nice write up about wordpress. It is true that people including myself who does not know coding can even create my own website. I used to pay money to people to set up website for me.

    I think that this is a superb tool for someone who wants to set up their own successful website. It is true that a few years ago it was much more complicated to do so, with all sorts of things to learn and understand before embarking on the actual fun part of getting the website content published. Now this can help someone who needs to write well, and also know how to get a site looking good. It’s great!

    Hi Whitsunday,
    I visited your website and spent quite a while exploring it.
    What a powerful tool is WordPress? Your insight clearly
    demonstrates how it can be used to building websites for great success. The truth is, even someone like me can build his own website. This is something that I never thought possible before. I must also say that Wealthy Affiliate is still the key to helping me to be where I am today. Therefore, your website is filled with excellent information to direct aspiring entrepreneurs to make their dreams come true. I really do like the contents of your website. I wish you success!

    I remember when I first logged into my first ever WordPress dashboard and boy was it foreign!. I can’t begin to imagine how people created websites before WordPress came to the rescue!. This course almost seems like a steal. If I had access to this guide a few years ago I would have saved so much time. Thanks for sharing it with us all. Had you had experience with building a website before WordPress came along?. I hear it was pretty scary.

      Hi Josh. I began my internet career using WordPress, not coding, thankfully. In fact it was WordPress that really made online work available to Average Joe and his sisters. I have to admit it took me a long time to grasp the ins and outs. I didn’t realise their were training programs to learn wordpress. It would have saved me at least four months of messing around on my own.

      Oh well, lucky Iike learning new stuff! Sheesh!

    Hi, Janelle and thank you for this detailed post on WordPress. I am looking to create my first website but I am a bit nervous as I am not a computer geek at all. You made it sound that WordPress is very user-friendly and practically anyone can build a site. My other concern is I know nothing about page ranking etc. Does WordPress takes care of that too? Thank you!

      Hi. I wrote this with people like you in mind. Simply go to Udemy through the link above. It will cost about $10 at the moment for ‘Zero to First Blog’.

      You will thank me later because I know how much time this mini course will save.

      Regarding your other concern about page rank…no. WordPress does not take care of that for you. WordPress is for creating websites containing pages, posts and images.

      Page rank is achieved by SEO techniques applied to the content of your website.

      The best place to learn how to create a WordPress website and how to rank pages by SEO is Wealthy Affiliate.

      If you haven’t already joined WA I recommend you do soon. There is a link to WA above too.

      Seriously, you will thank me twice!

      Good luck and don’t let fear stop you from achieving your dreams.
