Did you know that around 30% of all websites are built using WordPress?

Millions of websites around the world, then, are powered by WordPress.

Think about this …

To compete successfully in the Digital Age, businesses need a digital presence that allows them to get better results online than their competitors.

To get better results online, businesses need to feel empowered and in complete control of their web, technical, and digital processes. In other words, they need to be in the driver’s seat of their digital vehicle.

Most businesses, however, are not run by tech-savvy web developers, coders, or web programmers, they are run by non-technical people.

How, then, can businesses be in complete control of their web, technical, and digital processes and in the driver’s seat of their digital vehicle if that vehicle can only be driven by tech-savvy web developers, coders, or web programmers?

The bottom line, is that this is not about WordPress, it’s about helping businesses get results!

It’s cool that techies and geeks get excited about techy-geeky stuff, but most businesses don’t care about that, they care about getting results.

Businesses need better results online to stay ahead of their competition. If they build their digital presence on a technical platform, however, they risk becoming dependent on technical service providers for everything. In other words, they risk becoming a “hostage” of their website developers.

Being a “hostage” and depending on outsourced service providers for managing and growing your web presence is not a competitive advantage.

WordPress can deliver businesses better results online without making them “hostages” of tech-savvy web developers, coders, or web programmers.

As we explain in ‘The WordPress Paradox,’ anyone can build, manage, and grow a successful and competitive digital presence with WordPress with no technical skills required. All they need is to be made aware of this and be shown how in a non-technical way.

As we also explain in ‘The Small Business Digital Manager,’ however, there is no incentive for website developers to educate and empower their clients to be in complete control of their websites.

Most new WordPress website owners, then, are given very little training by their website developers on how to get the most out of their WordPress sites and how to get better results online using WordPress. Understandably, this is partly because most WordPress service providers focus on selling web services, not on creating systems to educate, teach, and train non-technical users about WordPress.

Even WordPress’ official documentation website is regarded by many WordPress users as being “too technical” for beginners and non-coders. You will end up sifting through loads of technical content aimed primarily at web developers and programmers.

Here at WPCompendium.org, we provide new WordPress website owners with non-technical WordPress training that will:

  • Educate you about the benefits and advantages of using WordPress to grow your business and compete successfully in the Digital Age,
  • Teach you how to build, configure, use, manage, optimize, secure, and grow your WordPress website with no coding skills required and at minimal cost,

Our tutorials are arranged in logical step-by-step order and designed to help you understand the benefits of using WordPress and all of the important processes and steps you will need to planinstall, and configure a professional WordPress site or blog on your own domain. We also show you how to use, expand, customize, manage, optimize, and secure your WordPress site, and even how to grow your business online using proven online marketing tools, methods and strategies that integrate and can be used with WordPress.

About …

Martin AranovitchHello … my name is Martin Aranovitch. I am a WordPress educator and training content publisher and the founder of WPCompendium.org.

I have “zero” coding skills. Yet, over 10+ years, I have used WordPress to build hundreds of websites for corporate and business clients, as well as personal blogs, e-commerce stores, membership sites, business directories, affiliate review sites, portfolio sites, video sites, event registration sites, e-learning sites, lead generation sites, customer support sites with help desks, and more … all at minimal cost and without learning to code.

In fact, since discovering WordPress in late 2005, I have never hired a web developer or a web designer to build, set up, manage, or grow a website for me.

Like many business owners, I don’t want to learn how to code or program web applications … I just want to get better results online! 

As a non-techie, I know from personal experience that if you are willing to invest a little time into learning how to use WordPress, you can build almost anything online you can imagine without depending on technical experts to get things done.

Once you learn what WordPress can do, outsourcing to technical experts becomes a choice, not an absolute requirement for having an effective online presence.

I have been teaching and training businesses of all sizes about the benefits of using WordPress almost since the beginning of WordPress itself. Around late 2005, I began building websites for local businesses. Prior to discovering WordPress and deciding to build businesses online, I spent many years working as a business and software trainer, business systems developer, and business and sales training coach.

From the moment I started building WordPress sites for clients, I noticed that most clients lacked knowledge of the benefits and advantages of using WordPress and that most training methods to teach new WordPress users presented real challenges for clients.

In 2010, I stopped building websites and began running training seminars and workshops educating businesses about the benefits of using WordPress …

In addition to seminars and workshops, I have authored a comprehensive series of step-by-step WordPress training guides covering every aspect of using WordPress, from installation and setup to detailed guides on using, growing and managing a website with WordPress …
