I love teaching WordPress now because when I started to learn WordPress, I did it the way many of you have tried: without help. I struggled to get the hang of it for more than a year. I watched a lot of amateur YouTube videos that were sometimes helpful but were mostly useless and out of date. I wished that I had somebody to call on whenever I had a question or ran into a roadblock. But, I didn’t. I was on my own.
Once I finally got a handle on the WordPress platform, I didn’t stop there.
I hired a virtual coach in Denver to teach me Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
During our screen share 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.
I don’t think learning WordPress has to be so tough.
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 website consulting 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.
