How to Use WordPress for Your Business Website Workshop

Registration is now open for my upcoming WordPress workshop here on Maui – “How to Use WordPress for Your Business”.

WordpressEvery business needs a website. But historically, to build a website, you either needed to know how to code, or hire someone who did. Now, with the advent of free, open source internet publishing tools like WordPress, you don’t HAVE to know how to code. WordPress is a very capable online publishing tool and content management system that you can use to build your entire website with – not just a blog.

Join me May 25 from 8am to noon, at the Malcolm Center, 1305 Holopono St., Suite 1, Kihei, for an informative and hands-on workshop on “How to Use WordPress for Your Business Website.” You will get a conceptual overview of the WordPress publishing platform and process, demonstration and guided tour of WordPress, as well as hands-on experience working within the WordPress publishing platform.

Bring your laptop if you have one. This is a hands-on session.

Date: Tuesday, May 25, 2010

Time: 8:00am – 12:00pm

Location: Malcolm Center, 1305 Holopono St., Suite 1, Kihei

Cost: $35

    Sounds good. As fast as this workshop is filling up there’s definitely a demand for another workshop. I’m leaning towards mid- to late-June but we need to check conference room availability.
