Hi, I’m Emily Journey. I am a WordPress Trainer and consultant for marketing teams, IT departments, business owners and administrative staff. When you have knowledge, understanding and control over the WordPress platform, you can:
- Increase profit margins
- Make more sales
- Decrease web development costs
Personally, I don’t know any professional that would pass up those benefits. (Myself included!)
I’ve spent almost a decade delivering and refining my comprehensive WordPress Training program. In the process, I have expanded to include additional WordPress experts. Each of our instructors is personally trained by me and use my specific training methods. They are also required to have worked as a member of our team in a different capacity for at least one year.
Lead Instructor, Rachel Pfanz joined me in Spring, 2017 and is our in-house expert on the Divi and Avada WordPress themes. Is your website a tangled mess? Rachel has lots of experience with helping people untangle their websites.
WordPress Instructor, Mark McPhilimy is a true master of all things digital in our world. In addition to managing our client websites and social media accounts, he throws in his mad skills with graphic design and copywriting! Got a Wix or Squarespace website? Mark knows his way around these platforms, too.
Training Coordinator, Erin Brooks works to ensure everything in our office runs smoothly so we can focus on what we do best–WordPress! Erin is usually the first contact whenever someone contacts our office which makes her job very important to all of us. Needless to say, we trust her with our business.
When I started learning WordPress, I did it the way many of you have tried: without help. After almost two years of persistent effort, I had a solid handle on the platform.
And, I didn’t stop there.
I hired a virtual coach in Denver to teach me Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
During our virtual training sessions, I was impressed with how easily he communicated his knowledge and authority on the topic – he provided answers for questions I didn’t even know to ask! That was my first experience with virtual learning and it was worth every penny.
Despite my initial hesitations about virtual training, I am thankful that I took the plunge. I know it can seem “not quite as good” as face-to-face learning. I wondered:
- Could I really learn this way?
- Would I get as much value from the training?
Thankfully, I didn’t let my doubts get the best of me. That virtual training experience not only changed the way I did business – it changed my life.
I invested in WordPress and training for the same reason you’re here today: independence. For me, I wanted the independence to transition from selling for other people to selling my own material.
For you, independence may mean something different. Maybe you want to:
- Save money by not having to hire someone to do this for you.
- Break free from a reliance on an unresponsive marketing agency.
- Equip your marketing department to handle the website work in-house.
- Handle this responsibility that’s been handed to you by your boss.
My path to mastering WordPress led me down a road of trial and error, a bad experience with an affordable website designer, launching my own web design agency, and meeting all kinds of business owners.
Your journey may look a bit different, but I hope I can help you end up at a similar destination: independent mastery over this powerful platform.
Let’s take a look at how we’ll help you get there…
