WordPress® for Business

WordPress® is the most popular software for building and hosting personal websites on the Internet, but it’s increasingly also the engine of richly-designed and complex business sites. Want to promote and sell your photography? Run a subscription-based coaching practice? Make a living building sites for other small businesses? This course will cover the features of WordPress® and its multitude of add-ons. You’ll learn about themes and plugins (many of them free) that can make your site do more than share articles. This class will emphasize ways to enable e-commerce, as well as considerations about extra security, maintenance, and monitoring requirements you should consider once a business WordPress site goes live to the public.
