One to One WordPress Workshops in Northern Ireland

Build and maintain your own website - When clients are looking for a product or service, they turn to the Internet. If your business doesn't have a website, the chances of growing your business are slim. Yes, you could get by with social media, but do you think your clients will take you seriously if they can't find your website?

During this 1-2-1 WordPress Training, you will learn how to build, manage and update your own website, without having to rely on a "web guy" who will likely charge you a fortune for small updates!

This workshop is for photographers and other sole traders who want a professional-looking, responsive, mobile-friendly website and the confidence to maintain it. Presented at a location that suits you, working at your own pace with the opportunity to ask plenty of questions.

PLEASE NOTE: During the workshop, you will need to purchase a domain name (approx £10 pa)  and web hosting (from £72 pa). We will take some time at the start of the workshop to explore the most cost-effective solution for you. These are ongoing costs and NOT included in the workshop price. You will need to have a valid credit/debit card for these charges.

  • Experience Required

    No previous experience of WordPress is required for this workshop, although you should have some basic computer knowledge. If you are comfortable using email, copy/paste and saving files/folders, you will be fine!

  • What Equipment do I need?

    You will need a computer with an Internet connection (obviously!!). When you sign up I will send you some "homework" to have completed before the workshop - mainly spending some time thinking about the layout of your website and content for it - so we can make the most of our time together

At the end of this workshop, you will have a fully functional LIVE website and a greater understanding of how to make changes and maintain your new showcase to the world!
