Here is what I’ll be talking about:

  • Get introduced to why WordPress is a great option for any small business to build and maintain their own site.
    • No more expensive graphic designers or waiting on a webmaster to make a simple change on your site.
    • If you have an old static site that isn’t bringing in traffic, or if you’re creating a website for the first time, WordPress is a great option for any small business.
    • Maintain your own website with this quick, easy and cost-effective tool that grows along with your company.
  • What we will be discussing
    • Do you really need a Site AND a Blog for your business?
    • The difference between Blogs and Sites
    • WordPress.org (not WordPress.com)
      • It’s Free software (all you need is a hosting service provider and some plugins)
      • Maintain your own site/blog
      • Built in Marketing Advantages
      • A glance at how it works
        • Admin panel, Themes, Plugins and Widgets (what are they)
          • Steps to get started
        • This series was coordinated by Dhyan Atkinson, and there are a lot of other great workshops in the series, as well, so go to the library’s website and check them out. Beth Hayden just did a great one on BLOGGING FOR YOUR BUSINESS. And the next one, after mine is Cindy Kalman, talking about GRAPHIC DESIGN IN THE INTERNET AGE.  So, check them all out.

          If you miss any of them, don’t worry, we’ll be doing them again in the new year.  Also, don’t forget I am doing WordPress Workshops at Boulder Digital Arts, as well.
