Your Challenge

You've got a WordPress website that someone built for you. You now want to do updates yourself, but you're too busy to learn on your own. You want to get new content onto your website quickly and efficiently without waiting for someone else to do it for you.

Our Solution

I will remove some of the learning curve, covering the fundamentals of WordPress website management and updates. I will empower you to take charge and get the most out of your website with individualised training.

I will show you how your website has been set up, what you can change, how to change it, along with giving you ideas on what else you might do. 


The Process

  1. Let's first find out what you want to achieve.
  2. What do you know and what don't you know?
  3. I will login to your website and take a look at your current website set up.
  4. I will then tailor a training session to your unique requirements and set up
  5. Initial training session is 1.5 hours
  6. Training is via Zoom conference - if in Christchurch, I can come to you.
  7. If I spot anything I think you need to change, I will let you know that as well.
