Learn WordPress in a Week To Grow Your Business

Learning WordPress is easy as long as you are willing to commit a few hours each day for a week. You would need some very basic search skills (i.e know how to use search engines like Google), and the ability to follow instructions. You don’t need to know HTML and programming language to code a website. It will be helpful to learn them in the future, but you don’t need them to make a website using WordPress as a beginner. The majority of WordPress users don’t have coding or programming skills, and they have been using WordPress for years.

Similarly, many successful WordPress developers started out just like you, and now they are making websites as full-time web developers. If you are fully devoted to learning WordPress, we’ll tell you some simple ways to learn WordPress.

Get started with WordPress. WordPress has two types, WordPress.org and WordPress.com. First of all, you have to choose the right platform. After choosing the right platform, buy your domain name and connect it to the website. A domain name makes the online presence of your website on the internet. After buying a domain name, select web hosting. Choose a reliable web hosting company that offers you all premium features at very affordable and reasonable prices. There are a lot of web hosting companies available but we recommend Temok.

After choosing domain name and web hosting, it’s time to install WordPress. After the installation of WordPress, you’ll see the WordPress dashboard or the admin area. You have created a WordPress website. But there are a lot of features, themes, plugins, and many other things you need to learn. But, don’t need to worry, you can learn WordPress in a week.

After installation, learn basic things of WordPress. There are thousands of WordPress tutorials, videos, and lectures available where you can easily learn WordPress in a week.

Learn about WordPress plugins. There are more than 59,000 WordPress plugins available. If you are a beginner, it is difficult to know about all plugins. So, start with some most popular plugins and build your website. We recommend every user install a WordPress backup plugin, WordPress SEO plugin, and WPForms for your contact form. After knowing about WordPress plugins, learn about WordPress themes. WordPress themes manage your website look. Themes are pre-made templates that you can install and customize for your site. There are thousands of free and premium themes available for WordPress. You can download free themes from the WordPress Themes directory.
