The kind of coaching/training on offer is suitable for absolute beginners and people with some experience of using WordPress.
Do you want the knowledge and self-confidence to update and manage your own WordPress powered website? Perhaps create WordPress websites for your friends, family or clients?
My WordPress coaching, training and mentoring will help you on your way.
What you’ll learn is how to do the things you want to, and how to do them quickly and efficiently.
If you’ve taken delivery of a brand new website that is running on WordPress, or you’ve just set one up and don’t know what to do next, we can help you. Our training is typically focused on you and your needs, from the very basic stuff like creating posts and pages, to the more complicated tasks like installing and setting up plugins.
We deliver the training/coaching in one of two ways; online or if you live in Manchester or surrounding areas, we can come to you at your home/place of work, whichever suits you best.
(To deliver the training online we use Google Hangout/Skype.)
Flexibility is key to the training and together we create a schedule that works for you; you can book one hour in total or one hour (or more) per week until you are confident enough to go it alone.
If you prefer to learn WordPress over a shorter period, you can book up to six hours per day.
