Keeping your business’ website up to date is incredibly important. Regardless of your industry, Google search queries fluctuate over time; these Google searches tend to change seasonally, and staying ahead of your competition will ensure that your business continues to rank higher and higher over time. You might also spot an issue on your website or might want to make a quick change without having to ask us to make the change for you. In order to empower you to make changes on your own, we are now offering a variety of tutorials that will teach you how to use WordPress like the pros!
Is WordPress Hard to Use?
WordPress can be a daunting service at first—WordPress is fully customizable, and sorting through the extensive user interface can be overwhelming. Once you have a general understanding of the toolbars, navigation buttons, individual widgets, and special features, making changes on the backend can actually be pretty easy. Unfortunately, despite the fact that some of the functions appear to be easy, the margin of error on WordPress’ backend can be unforgiving. Sometimes a minor error that you don’t even realize you’ve made can break your website. So, in order to make sure this doesn’t happen to you and your company, we are now providing three kinds of WordPress tutorials to make your life easier.
1. Written WordPress Tutorials
Some of you may have never used WordPress—if this is the case, you have nothing to worry about. For those of you who have never had to make a change on a website, we will provide you with a document that will guide you through the fundamentals of how to use WordPress. These guides will address the building blocks of all WordPress functions. After you read through our tutorial, you will be able to:
- Use the WordPress Dashboard
- Implement Media via the Image Gallery
- Edit and Add Media
- Edit Text
By following this module, you will be able to make changes as needed. After a little bit of practice, you’ll find that making small changes is much easier than you might think. But that’s not all we have to offer!
2. Custom Requests for WordPress Tutorials
For those of you who are especially tech-savvy, the pre-written tutorial might not be enough to address some of the functionalities you hope to use on a regular basis. If you need more information and personalized instruction for how to use WordPress in a more extensive way, just let us know and we will reach out to you to gather those additional details. (of note: this personalized tutorial will require a service fee).
3. Virtual WordPressTutorial + Reference Video
If things still aren’t clicking, or if you learn better from having someone show you how to perform a function, we have just the service for you. One of our skilled web designers will actually video call you and walk through answering any and all questions you might have in real-time! You can take the lead (after all, you know what questions matter most to you) and we will do all we can to make sure you leave the session understanding everything we’ve talked about. We’ll even record the session on our end and give you a video copy just in case you forget something from the session.
