Ask any savvy online woman what platform she uses, and she’ll most likely say “WordPress” thanks to its popularity and seriously impressive number of features. But regardless, some bloggers and business owners still seem a little uncertain about making the switch… That’s why I’ve created this step-by-step, hold-your-hand, walk-you-through-it, in-depth e-course for beginners so you can learn WordPress… free!

It’s already got more than 7,000 members so you’ve got nothing to lose by signing up. And if you’re not into blogging? You can use the same steps to turn it into a professional website, store, forum or even a social network.

(Side note: if you’d prefer to just learn the very basics and get your new site started in under 5 minutes you might prefer the express WP set-up guide here. And also, you can always do both!)

Already know a bit about WordPress? No problem! You can view all the lessons, or pick and follow the ones that apply to you (in your own time!). Think of it as being choose-your-own-adventure style. There’s no hurry to rush through steps, and I’ll be right here on the other end to answer any questions you may have.

Registration is very simple… simply scroll down and fill in your name, e-mail address and a few other details. If you’ve ever wanted to learn WordPress for beginners, now’s your opportunity – the universe has heard you! I’ve seen these courses run for hundreds of dollars, so this is a BIG saving!

Learn WordPress free: Frequently Asked Questions…

Can I really learn WordPress free with this e-course?!
Yes! There is currently no monetary charge to access the lessons (though I do kindly ask that you simply pin this post’s featured image to a public Pinterest board – because sharing is caring and that’s still a pretty sweet deal, right?!). Access to the course content is granted for a minimum of one month.

What about hosting and domain names?
If you want to put the information into practice, you’ll need to purchase these – but don’t worry, I tell you who I recommend to get them through (and why) and walk you through the set-up, step-by-step. And if you’re not ready to do this just yet, you can always read through the info and come back to it later!

It’s great to learn WordPress free, but what if I need help?
If you have any questions regarding any of the steps, feel free to ask it within the relevant page’s comments section and I’ll do my best to help you. I also offer a list of places you can turn to for extra support should you want it.
