Getting Started With WordPress

Beginner Friendly WordPress Tutorials

The most common questions I get about getting started are “Which version of WordPress to use – WordPress.com versus WordPress.org”, “what are the benefits of having a WordPress website?” and “what will I need to get started?”.  So here are 3 blog posts:

Which stage are you at?

All WordPress Website Owners go through 3 stages.

All WordPress website owners  start off in the BUILD stage, getting to know the platform and creating your Website.  Even if you’ve had your site built for you, you’ll still work through, for the most part, familiarizing yourself with how WordPress works. 

This is especially true,  if your long term plan is to outsource management your website. It’s important to understand what’s involved so you’ve got a better idea when it comes to hiring someone to take care of it. 

However having the freedom and confidence to make changes is one of the great benefits of having your own site!

You’ll then transition into the MAINTAIN stage – so you’ve got your WordPress website and your attention is now on taking care of your site. You’re most likely familiar with basic editing of your site.  So, looking at security and completing regular backups and updates; a process you’ll rinse and repeat  regularly in order to ensure your site is functioning well and remains operational. 

The last stage is IMPROVE stage where we’re focused on performance of your site, showing up on the search engines and enhancing user experience. Our focus is building your online presence and perfecting how you deliver your message and reach your ideal clients online.

Whilst that’s not to say, you’re locked into one stage or another, and that the learning stops.  You may see yourself in all 3.  Which is not uncommon.  However considering where you are in your WordPress Journey can be super helpful when it comes to getting support and deciding on you your next steps.

Stage 1 – Build

Familiarizing the platform & learning to build your WordPress Website from scratch.

Stage 2 – Maintain

Learning to take care of your WordPress website security & maintenance. Keeping it updated.

Stage 3 – Improve

Focusing on website performance, enhancing user experience and search engine optimisation.

It’s from these 3 stages, the my signature WordPress Beginners Programme was created.
