Get Thrive Leads for WordPress

Train Your Staff How To Use WordPress In 7 Days For FreeDoes your business website run on WordPress? Over a quarter of all websites worldwide are powered by WordPress, so yours is probably too!

If your business employs staff and your digital presence matters to your business, then it’s important to train everyone in your team to use WordPress effectively.

As we explain in The WordPress Paradox, almost every aspect of WordPress can be managed by non-technical users. This means that anyone in your team can not only contribute to the growth of your small business but also help your business save money on the cost of hiring outside experts to look after its digital management and digital marketing processes.

For example, if your staff knew how to use WordPress effectively, your business could easily get the following done without having to employ website developers, or hire web programmers, web coders, or web support services:

  • Publish content online to promote your business, drive more traffic, and generate more leads to your website.
  • Add new pages and posts, edit existing content (e.g. pages and product descriptions), upload PDF files, images, videos, etc.
  • Manage, maintain, and keep everything in your website up-to-date, fully backed-up and protected from hackers and malicious users without touching any code (most of this can even be automated). This includes the core software, files, database, plugins, themes, content, pages, uploads, users, etc.
  • Add new functionality to your website (e.g. add e-commerce, newsletter signup forms, advertising banners, a membership site or directory, contact forms, image or video galleries, etc.) with a few clicks of the mouse using free or inexpensive plugins.
  • Change your web design entirely with a few clicks of the mouse using free or inexpensive themes.
  • Rearrange, tweak or improve the layout of your website and reconfigure user navigation menus in your site’s header, footer, or sidebar areas to improve visitor and user experience with a few clicks of the mouse using drag and drop widgets.
  • Test, improve, and automate marketing processes (e.g. SEO, traffic generation, list-building, sales conversion, etc.) and generate useful business and website reports (e.g. analytics, social engagement, etc.) using plugins and services that integrate easily with WordPress.
  • Troubleshoot common website errors.
  • And a whole lot more!

Training your staff to use WordPress effectively saves your business time and money in areas like outsourcing, web development, web design, technical support, etc. (only bring in experts when absolutely necessary), and helps to improve business efficiency, boost productivity and gain a competitive advantage.

The benefits of training your staff to use WordPress effectively

(The benefits of training your staff to use WordPress effectively)

Teaching and training people to use WordPress effectively, however, can be very challenging. As we explain in The Challenges Of Educating, Teaching, And Training New WordPress Users, although website developers are responsible for providing clients with training on how to use their new websites, they are often not the best people to train new WordPress users. Training is not their core business and they have no incentive to fully train and empower clients to manage their own websites.

As a result, many new WordPress users do not receive the kind of training that would help them get the most benefit from using WordPress and their websites end up being significantly underutilized or costing more money to maintain than it should.

You can spend hundreds, even thousands of dollars on WordPress courses and digital skills training for your staff … or use WPCompendium.org!

Train your staff to use WordPress ... for FREE!

(Train your staff to use WordPress … for FREE!)

Business Owner/Manager – Please Read This First

This WordPress training course is entirely self-paced. It consists of 7 practical lessons that can be completed in the user’s own time and convenience. Just refer members of your staff to this page and ask them to complete the training program below.

After a staff member has completed the tutorials and the action steps in the training program, they will not only have the knowledge, skills, and competence to perform tasks in vital areas like digital content publishing, digital management, and digital marketing, they will also know where to come to find answers and to keep learning about more ways to help your business grow online.

Before you begin training your staff on how to use WordPress, please make sure to do the following:

  1. Confirm that your site is actually powered by WordPress. If you’re not sure, ask your web host, website developer, or see this tutorial: Does Your Website Run On WordPress? How To Tell
  2. Make sure that you have admin access to your WordPress site so your staff can perform all of the tasks included in the tutorials. For security purposes, we recommend creating new user accounts for training new members.
  3. Ideally, your WordPress site would have been expertly configured to automate processes like backups, search engine indexing, social media marketing, etc. Not all website developers will do (or can do) this when they set up your website. An expertly configured WordPress site will automatically get your pages indexed on search engines and instantly syndicate your content on social media and other authority sites as soon as new content is published, and automatically perform other management and marketing tasks, like backups, add new subscribers to your list, etc.
  4. Make a complete backup of your WordPress site before allowing anyone to access your site’s admin area. See this section if you need help automating WordPress backups, or install a plugin like Backup Creator to perform 1-click backups.
  5. Optional: The businesses that get the best results online are those that are in complete control of their digital presence. To learn why most businesses are not in control of their digital presence and how to avoid this, we recommend downloading an e-book we have written specifically to help small businesses called The Small Business Digital Manager.

WordPress lets you drive your digital vehicle wherever you want to go!

(WordPress lets you drive your digital vehicle wherever you want to go!)

For this lesson, just focus on adding a text-based article or blog post to WordPress and learning how to publish it. In Lesson 4, we’ll go through the tutorials on editing your content and adding images and videos.

Important

As stated in the introduction section, this training assumes that your business already has a WordPress site set up and professionally configured (you can learn how to do this yourself using our Free WordPress installation and WordPress configuration tutorials, but this is your website developer’s job).

If so, your site should already have the following SEO features installed and configured:

  • Permalinks – This creates SEO-friendly URLs for your posts and pages. If configured correctly, there’s nothing you need to do here. Your post will automatically publish with an SEO-friendly URL.
  • Post Categories – If post categories have been set up correctly for your site, all you need to do is select the category that best fits your post before publishing. If no category is available, see our tutorials to learn how to add a new post category to WordPress.
  • Post Tags – This a built-in feature of WordPress. All you need to do is add relevant tags to your post before publishing.
  • SEO Plugin – With an SEO plugin installed (e.g. Yoast SEO), you can ‘instruct’ sites like Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc. how to display your content in their search results, post feeds, RSS feeds, etc.
  • Content Syndication – If your WordPress site has been expertly configured, your posts should automatically appear on your social pages (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.) Note: not all website developers will set this up (you can learn how to do it yourself with these tutorials).

Congratulations! After completing Lesson 3, you should now know how to publish a new article or blog post on your WordPress site and how to optimize your post or page for search engines.

Free WordPress Tutorials For Non-Techies

WPCompendium.org provides hundreds of detailed step-by-step WordPress tutorials for non-techies … 100% Free!

Free WordPress Tutorials For Non-Techies

Free WordPress Tutorials For Non-TechiesWPCompendium.org provides hundreds of detailed step-by-step WordPress tutorials for non-techies … 100% FREE!

Many website owners are non-techies. They are businesses and bloggers who want a digital presence that will deliver them better results online, help them create more exposure online, drive more traffic, get more leads, more customers, more subscribers, make more sales, and gain a competitive advantage without having to become web developers or learn how to code.

Why WPCompendium.org?

Your business needs a digital presence to grow and compete successfully in the Digital Information Age. Non-technical website owners, however, can’t afford to have a digital presence where every aspect of using, managing, or growing your business online requires employing people with technical skills to do things for you.

Outsourcing every aspect of your digital presence is not only expensive, it can also be risky and frustrating, as you can end up with no control over your own processes and have to wait for even simple things to get done.

Most non-techies hire website developers to build their websites and expect to be trained by them on how to use their sites.

As we explain in The Challenges Of Educating, Teaching, And Training New WordPress Users, however, clients shouldn’t expect to receive training that will empower them to have control of their own web presence, as this is neither their core area of expertise, nor is it in their best interest to do so.

As we explain in The WordPress Paradox, the current web services industry is not designed to empower non-technical users, it’s designed to keep users dependent on technical service providers.

And as we explain in the Small Business Digital Manager, many small businesses outsource their digital management and digital marketing without systems in place to control and manage their digital processes, and end up either with an unmanageable web presence, or being held “hostage” by their digital service providers.

If you are not technical-minded and want to learn how to grow a business online without having to learn how to write code and without having to depend on technical experts for everything, what you need, then, is training that will show you step-by-step what to do to get better results online and empower you to be in complete control of your web presence.

This is why we created WPCompendium.org. Our FREE tutorials will take you step-by-step through the entire process of building, managing, and growing your own web presence without technical skills and at minimal cost.

WordPress Is The Ideal Digital Vehicle For Non-Techies

With WordPress, you can build any kind of digital vehicle you can imagine and take it wherever you want to go …

WordPress lets you build any kind of digital vehicle you want!

(WordPress lets you build any kind of digital vehicle you want)

Without the keys to drive your vehicle, however, you’ll be stuck whenever you want to drive your business forward or get anything done.

It’s like owning a car but constantly needing the help of mechanics and chauffeurs to use it.

WordPress education and training are the keys that let you drive your vehicle without depending on technical people like website developers, web designers, etc.

That’s why WPCompendium.org provides hundreds of comprehensive WordPress tutorials for FREE that show you step-by-step how to be in complete control of your web presence and how to get better results online without technical skills and at minimal cost.

Non-Techie WordPress Tutorials For Non-Techie WordPress Users

Everything you see on WPCompendium.org has been built and configured by a non-techie to help other non-techies learn how to build, manage, and grow a successful digital presence without having to mess with code or learn how to program.

This site attracts thousands of WordPress users from all around the world every month using a default ‘out-of-the-box’ free WordPress theme and free or very inexpensive WordPress plugins to automate management and marketing processes. We have not employed website developers, web designers, or web coders to install, configure, manage, or grow any aspect of this site.

We have purposely done things this way to make sure that other non-techies can duplicate the same processes using WordPress and achieve great results online too.

We know that most businesses are run by non-techies who want a digital presence that will deliver them maximum results at minimal cost. We have spent years documenting how to start and build a professional business website that can be fully managed by a non-technical user. Our step-by-step tutorials are simple to follow and will save you years of learning and trying to figure things out for yourself.

What sets our WordPress tutorials apart from all other WordPress tutorial sites is that we focus 100% on non-technical users and create our content with non-techies in mind by asking questions like:

  • What does this WordPress function or feature do, how does it work, and how can it help non-technical users achieve desired results and grow their business?
  • How do we explain the benefits of using this feature or function so non-techies can understand and apply it to their own sites?
  • Where do all the buttons, links, options, settings, and sections connected to this WordPress function or feature lead to, how do they work, and what purpose do they serve? How do we explain all this in non-technical terms?
  • What is the most cost-effective way to get results in this area of WordPress and are there any processes that can be automated? If so, how?
  • How far can a non-techie go on their own in this area of WordPress without having to hire or outsource technical experts or technical service providers?

Non-Techie WordPress User? You Can Do It!

Visit any online discussion group for website developers and you will see that many web service providers believe that non-techies should not build, manage, or mess with their own websites because they will stuff things up if they do.

The problem with this belief is that it not only comes from a place of disempowerment, it’s also driven by self interest.

We are not discouraging businesses from outsourcing to website developers and technical service providers. Our aim is to help businesses make informed decisions by understanding that outsourcing is a choice, not a requirement.

Most small businesses, however, can’t make an informed decision because they are often not aware that:

  1. A platform like WordPress gives non-techies the choice of doing it all themselves to save money or outsourcing to save time, and
  2. The people they normally turn to for help or advice (e.g. website developers) have no incentive or motivation to educate, encourage, or empower them to do it all themselves.

The good news is that if you are a non-techie who would like to learn how to build a successful online presence, you can do it … just follow our step-by-step tutorials!
