Intro to WordPress: Free Workshop

  • Little Space Studio 111 Division Avenue South Grand Rapids, MI, 49503 United States (map)


If you're a creative professional, you have a brand. Your brand is represented in many different places - in your product or service, in your reputation, and... online. For creatives, the latter can be daunting. Most people expect you to have a website or online portfolio, but how do you set one up?

33% of the internet is powered by WordPress, and it's one of the most powerful, community-supported website building platforms you can use. Coding from scratch is unnecessarily hard and takes your focus off your creative work, yet plug-and-play solutions slot your brand in a box. Building your own site gives you all the control... but it feels daunting, right? - now you have an opportunity to get up and running with professional help.

If you're just starting out or have a website that you need some help with, this workshop is for you.

PLEASE NOTE: though the workshop is free and you're not required to purchase anything, you will receive the most benefit if you purchase hosting for your website beforehand.

We recommend purchasing through SiteGround's StartUp package:
