Custom WordPress Themes
Beginner or Advanced
I offer WordPress training tailored for your needs to business owners and for website designers who wish to learn how to make WordPress work for them.
The needs of most businesses is the ability to change content and images within a design. In WordPress this can be very easy or difficult based on the theme. In WordPress most pages can be changed with a basic skill level. The home page can be more difficult.
WordPress is a Content Management System, based on page templates, a media library and a database that holds your content. There may be design issues with the page templates that will prevent you from making the changes you want. for these changes you will need to know how to edit a copy of an existing template.
There are many good tutorials on the basics of using WordPress on the internet, but if you need a one-on-one trainer to develop your skills as quickly as possible, I do provide training.
My basic rate is $120 for a 2 hour session ($60/hr) at your office for one person. If it is for more than one person the cost increases by $10 per person per hour. (max class size is four). One owner and three staff can receive 2 hours of training for $180.
