Learn to build your own website with WordPress and Divi

15,August,2019

Want to learn WordPress and build a website?

Build your own website with WordPress and take back control of your website content. Following on from last year’s successful webinars and classroom training we’re running more training sessions on building WordPress websites using the Divi theme from Elegant Themes.

Why would a web designer show potential clients how to build a website?

There are a number of reasons for this, not least because I love to teach but I also feel it’s a way of helping the people I train, take ownership of their websites and content. It’s a common problem to find that a client is too busy to care about what happens to their website, as long as they know they have one. Then one day they ask why they aren’t getting any visitors, or haven’t a clue how to update their contact information.

Holding these webinars means I can also find out what problems people face with managing their sites, especially start ups with small budgets. I can then use this insight to tailor my services to other clients or rethink how I view the end user’s needs.

What’s in these training sessions?

I’ll show you how to quickly install WordPress on hosting platforms like Amazon Web Services or GoDaddy, then install essential plugins and the Divi theme.

We’ll then go through the various methods you can use to quickly put together some great looking pages.

If you are dabbling with creating your own site, are a one-person business or just want to learn WordPress, I would encourage you to sign up for one of my sessions and see how easy it is to become a WordPress web builder.

 

I had a lesson on how to use WordPress with Clement and it was very good. I enjoyed the session, learnt a lot and I’m now putting it into action! Thanks Clement. I would thoroughly recommend him and he’s very professional too. Avril
