WordPress Training in Abuja Nigeria
When you start planning a new website project, there are a lot of options. It can be daunting and overwhelming trying to pick the right tool for the job.
This course will delve into one of those options — WordPress — and why, after you’ve started using it, you’ll never need anything else.
This course will guide you through every single step from installation to finished website.
Once you’ve got WordPress installed on your computer, you will learn how to build and run a successful, beautiful, responsive-design website you can be proud of.
Many first-time WordPress users find the learning curve steep and the experience frustrating. But it doesn’t need to be this way. A well-structured training taught by a knowledgeable instructor is the solution.
This training lets beginners get familiar with the WordPress platform and learn the basics of web design and site structure. Students can take full control of their learning experience at a pace that suits them. The instructor is available through online forums to answer any questions that come up along the way.
Benefits of taking WordPress Training
WordPress has a huge community of users that support each other. There are subreddits about WordPress, themes, plugins, and more. Plus, there are tons of websites dedicated to learning WordPress (like the MOJO blog).
These are great resources, but the important point is that WordPress is built by one giant team. Some students are already utilizing the communal aspect of WordPress to sound off ideas and get feedback from their readers.
2. Problem Solving
When you start building a website, you’ll have a goal in mind. I want a portfolio website that does that cool scrolly animation thing. That’s called parallax (here’s a good example of a parallax image in the website header). In order to figure that out, you’ll have to do research, find a plugin or snippet of code, and learn to add it to your WordPress theme.
Or let’s say you want to get push notifications on your blog. Or make that Youtube video you added responsively. Or build a form with logic. You’ll have to figure it out.
Even learning the basic functions of WordPress forces you to research, experiment, make decisions, and find solutions to problems. These are what a lot of companies call “soft skills.” They aren’t your batting average, they’re bigger than that. Learning these skills helps you create a process that works. Having a process that works is beyond valuable. It’s necessary.
Laying out a website, creating pages and blog posts, and learning to maximize your SEO, or search engine optimization, all demand organization. For example, you’re familiar with website navigation menus. To make these useful to your readers, you have to think about site experience and flow. Like, if you’re an artist what do you put on the home page? And how do you break down the project to show your process? With so many moving parts, you learn to plan ahead and be proactive.
Starting a blog with WordPress gives you a powerful way to practice communication. Stephen King famously said that writing is “not any different than a bedtime routine.” Practice more, read more, be more.
Plus, writing for your website is not just about blogging. There’s copy everywhere, from buttons to headers to email signup forms. And there’s a deep sense of visual communication needed. This process will teach you to be clear, concise, direct, and confident. And it translates easily to public speaking, interviewing, emailing, and more.
Your ability to discover and distill information will steadily progress as you learn WordPress. Every new feature, blog post, or tweak you make will require at least one Google search. And, even when you find a good article or how-to, it’s often just a starting point. Eventually, you will research, refine, and relay ideas more quickly and effectively than ever.
WordPress will also teach you to use data in your research.
6. Data Analysis
This is a trending skill for almost any industry. With technology, data is accessible and readable for most jobs. That means you have to prepare to analyze seemingly random numbers and translate them into actions. WordPress is a great entry point. With Google analytics and A/B testing, you can create experiments, measure the results, and improve interaction with your website. This is a great way to show your employer you can set goals and review the results.
7. Technical Knowledge
Depending on the job you’re looking for, there are obviously different types of technical knowledge that apply. However, web development, coding, design, and writing are all technical skills picked up on your way to WordPress mastery. At least one of these technical proficiencies will be a requirement for the job you choose. And most employers appreciate some basic HTML and CSS knowledge (some even require WordPress expertise!).
But the point is, if you know the technical side of, say, electrical engineering, and you can write, design, and code, you’re a stronger candidate than most.
Knowing software that increases your productivity, or improves processes at your company, looks very enterprising to employers.
9. Writing Reports
This one ties into data analysis. As you learn what works on your website and what doesn’t, you can make conclusions about why your experiment succeeded or failed. Following this process teaches you to set clear goals and collect data. If you continue this approach with your day-to-day work, you’ll always have something valuable to hand your boss. When they ask how that campaign performed, you have the tools to show them. And, better yet, you have a perspective to offer about why it performed the way it did.
These are skills that are best learned by doing. So get started today, and follow the articles below to learn more about WordPress!
