It’s not enough to buy a web hosting plan and domain name, and to download WordPress. This is what leaves a lot of people confused and frustrated about what to do next. If you want to create a website for your enterprise that looks good, works well, and shows up in Google when the right kinds of people search for it, you’re going to need a number of tools to get you there.

As we go through this course, I encourage you to take each step, one at a time. Upon completion, you will have laid down a solid structure for your website to sit upon. It is then up to you to tell your story on the pages of this website.

In my next class, I will teach you how to optimize content on your pages and in your blog, as well as how to use various marketing elements in WordPress to improve your SEO.
