The Complete WordPress Mastery Course is WP Academy's A-Z training for creating an attractive website, promoting it with the full power of email marketing, SEO, social media and online video, and monetizing it with a shopping cart or membership system. It is designed for busy small-business owners, self-employed professionals and non-technical people who want to quickly master web technologies for the purpose of creating additional income sources through the web. It has also been used to start successful WordPress webmastering businesses, and by social media consultants to add valuable web design skills to their service portfolio.
These lectures were originally recorded live in May-June of 2012 for students who paid $600 for the full course. Major sections were redone in professional video in April-May of 2013, with the rest of the content due for updates and expansion by July 2014.
WordPress for Business Complete Recordings includes the newly-authored popular short course WordPress Essentials for Business, Theme Selection and Customization, and WordPress Backup, Security and Performance , plus additional sections listed below. The first two short courses will show you how to create, in under four hours, a professional-looking website which may be indistinguishable from a site created by a professional designer that cost you $2000 or more; while the remaining sections will show you how to hook up your site to newsletter management systems, search-engine optimization, shopping carts and membership systems, social media, online video, and more.
There is no other course on the internet that gives you so much practical and directly actionable information in such a brief time to create an effective, business-oriented website. You can read the reviews for WordPress Essentials to give you a flavor for the style of teaching, and you can review the table of contents below to see the breadth and depth of coverage.
This course is a living, breathing entity, continually adding new content as WordPress updates to new versions, new plugins and themes become available, and technology changes. We are actively working on expanding this content between now and July 2014 -- new sections are being added every month.
Note: we do our best to questions on the lectures, however we cannot guarantee support through this forum. If you want support, you should purchase the Live version of the course .
