ABC series: Build a business website using WordPress - A

Workshop A How to get hosting and set up WordPress


This will be a very intense hands on A-B-C course on WordPress websites. We will cover best practices on both aspects - business and technical.

Making a business website using WordPress might seems to be simple, but it is not. The biggest mistake most beginners make is not thinking their workflow first. WordPress gives you access to everything you need to design a professional website including design templates. Where to start? How much control do you want to have? What functionality? Workflow? Do you need add ons? Our mentor Tom Morel will guide you through the process step by step, covering all aspects of business websites and building blocks needed to start it right.
