    • Each class attendee will be given a test site, already set up with plugins and ready to use, so the class will be able to learn at the same pace.

       

    • I will send all attendees their test site login and a zip file with images we will use in our training, and directions for the class ahead of time.

       

    • You will have access to your  WordPress test site for for 60 days after class to continue to practice or refresh what you will learn.

       

    • Image folder with re-sized images so we can work efficiently with the image portion of the training.

       

    • You will be able to download the training folders to your desktop for future use to keep, and to use for more practice on your own. 

 

  • This class includes an online follow up set of 10 video lessons covering what you learned.

     

  • You will have access to those for 1 year. 

     

  • Class starts promptly and we will take one 15 minute break.
    We will have 30 minutes at the end for Q and A.

**You must bring a computer that can connect to the internet.
    Not a tablet. 
*I highly recommend you bring a mouse. Working on a website with a touch pad is slow and    cumbersome.

Products that I use and recommend.

snagit take web video, graphics, screen captures, draw on images and more

Another Product I mentioned is Snagit by Techsmith. They also make Camtasia, which you may of heard of. Snagit is a fast and easy way to work with images, “snag” things off the internet, resize and work with images you already have, and now they have built in a recorder that allows you to use your web cam or record your desktop and upload it to youtube or they will give you a free Screencast account to keep videos on. Here is their website, and a video on the features.

Web hosting WordPress Professional Top Notch

WebHosting– I run my own web hosting company for clients and it is only 95 a year.  This includes unlimited bandwidth, emails and two stat programs in your hosting control panel, unlimited sub-domains and add on domains and is very easy to use and understand. I manage and oversee all my clients accounts and I am on call 24/7 if any issues come up. Which I can happily say rarely occurs. The reason people choose to go with me is personal service and I am always there to help. If you are interested in using me for hosting, please contact me at 510-582-2837.

GravityForms-
Click here to visit rocketgenius. Gravity Forms is simply the best form program I have ever used. All my clients are using it now. It works with paypal, authorize.net and slide. It is like having on online file system. You can make extensive multiple forms and every submission has a copy of it saved on your site under entries. You can then export whatever fields you want, such as email, names, event special orders, and it will export to an excel file or format and basically you have a lifetime of records always on your site. Also with companies work with, it allows for you have you VA or assistants login and handle thing and see who has paid or signed up. The San Francsico Writers Conference is now using this sytem to register atteendees, Womens National Book Association for membership and  many many organizations I work with. To see how it works, you can watch my youtube video I made for clients already using the system.
