Wordpress for Beginners - A Complete Guide to Wordpress!

In 2020, it's never been easier to build a fantastic, responsive website that looks great on computers, tablets, and mobile phones.  

You can learn Wordpress WITHOUT having to buy web hosting or a domain name.  I'll show you how you can set it all up on your own computer using free tools. 

NOTE: This course will always be updated to cover the latest version of WordPress.  Covers WordPress 5.0 and earlier.

The primary goal of this course is to teach anyone, even a complete beginner, how to become a Wordpress guru in a few short hours, without lots of technical jargon.  I'll guarantee that after taking this course you'll have the knowledge you need to build a responsive, beautiful website with the latest version of Wordpress.  Not only will you know more than 99% of Wordpress users out there, but you'll actually enjoy using Wordpress too. 

This course is taught by Wordpress author and teacher, Dr. Andy Williams, who has over a decade of experience using and teaching Wordpress to people of all skill levels.

About the Course

This course will guide you through every single step from installation to finished website.  I'll show you how you can install Wordpress on your own computer for free, so you don't have to pay for a domain name or hosting fees while you complete this course.  Once you've got Wordpress installed on your computer, you will learn how to build and run a successful, beautiful, responsive-design website you can be proud of. 

After taking you through all of the main options in Wordpress, explaining what each one does and how you set it up, I'll let you watch over my shoulder as I build a Wordpress website.  It will be an affiliate site that I hope will make me passive income for many years to come.  Go and check out the free preview tutorials in Section 13.

Have you ever wanted to build a professional looking website, but didn't know where to start?  Now you can.  Wordpress for Beginners is a complete course for anyone, no matter what your technical ability.  This course assumes no prior knowledge!  

At the start of the course, I'll walk you through setting up Wordpress on your own computer so that you don't need to pay for a web host (or a domain name) while you master wordpress.  When you decide you want to put a website online, you can then watch over-my-shoulder as I buy a domain name and hosting, and install Wordpress online.

  • We'll cover the legal pages you need.
  • We'll discuss the navigation system on your site, and how you can set up customized navigation in the header, sidebar or footer of your site.  We'll also talk about internal site linking.

  • We'll check out some great free plugins.
  • Finally, I'll give you a 20 step plan for creating your site.

    Just of few of the many Student Reviews

    • This is a fabulous course, and I would it give it six stars if such a rating were available! Everything is very clearly explained, and Andy promptly answers any question you might have. If you are interested in using and learning WordPress, you owe it to yourself to take this outstanding course. Robert Weiser
    • Lectures are well-structured with lots of details given. The instructor is extremely knowledgeable and communicates very effectively. I've been able to set up my first website based on what I've learned here. A definite plus is that questions posted via the course are answered quickly! Susan Worms
    • I love this course. I have spent a few hours today and I have already learned so much. Really excited about the potential for when I am done. Great Course! A. Luis Acosta
    • I learned a lot more than how to use WordPress in basic terms. Andrew shares a lot of insider knowledge and tips that would take you countless hours of doing your own research to learnand answering questions you may not have thought to ask. Couldn't have asked for a better course to help me jumpstart into WordPress. Nathaniel Stephens
    • What a fantastic share of knowledge. I really appreciated and loved how a "real" site was used for the lectures, real world examples of everything. I would definitely take this course - highly recommended! Glen Schafer
    • This course is perfect for people who want to start a blog or info page with wordpress. He covers all the basics and sometimes goes even a little deeper, to give you an idea what to look for. The provided documents are gold and very helpfull. I can't wait to go public with my site. Thank you for the great lectures. Andreas Lackmann
    • I really wish I had access to a course such as this four years ago when I first started dabbling with Wordpress as a hobby in my retirement. The learning process at the time, for a non-techy like me, was painstaking. Andy's course was the ideal step-by-step teaching method. I'm now much more confident about starting a new affiliate marketing website. Leon
    • Well delivered, well structured. Easy to follow and logical. Developed my own website in parallel with the course, and had it up and running within two weeks of starting. Looking forward to undertaking a couple of the course developers other courses now. Highly recommended. Steve Laing
    • Excellent instructor. Andy is great. He used visuals for everything he say. I was able to pause him and go to my site and test my understanding in all areas that I did know. The results and excitement are fantastic. Esau Khan
    • A fantastic course. Thank you Andy. This is a great course and it has helped me start to build my own WordPress website. I was very impressed when I had a problem with viewing my site that you took time to check for me. That shows what a great teacher you are. I have booked up another course by to and can't wait for more. Once again. Thank you. B Brown
    • Many of the courses I've been through related to learning Wordpress are either too complicated or the author doesn't spend enough time explaining concepts so that you can understand what's being said. Andy strikes a nice balance with this course in that all the modules are broken up into easily digestible pieces. I like that he takes enough time to explain each new concept or module without being repetitive or using jargon that's difficult to follow. I also love being able to follow along with Andy as he explains each new module as well (as opposed to just talking off of slides all the time). He literally walks you through everything, so it's like you're right there looking over his shoulder. For anyone wanting to understand all the fundamentals of Wordpress, I think you'll absolutely love this course. It will save you tons of time by having all this information in one place. And you'll even learn some additional features like setting up affiliate links (not that everyone needs to know this but I like that Andy included it so it's there if you ever want to know). Truly a fantastic course! Lance Gross
    • Superb Course - Extraordinary Instructor!! Andy's Wordpress for Beginners-Master Wordpress Quicky course is by far the best Wordpress course I've seen. And I definitely wouldn't say it's just for beginners. I'm not a beginner - I thought I knew Wordpress pretty well, but I learned SO MUCH MORE from this course! I've always had a lot of questions about the many settings and various options in Wordpress and most courses just skip over them or tell you to check this box and move on with no explanation. I never really got my questions answered until now. Andy is very detailed in his instruction. He walks you through step by step and tells you what each setting or section is for, how it is used (or not used) and why. I got more out of Andy's course than any other course I've ever taken. He has an extensive teaching background and it is evident in his clearly produced videos. After taking this course, you'll find your confidence level will soar. Carol
