WordPress Tutorials | Learn How to Use WordPress
These WordPress video tutorials are specifically designed to help clients of Innovated Media (or if you aren't one of our clients, and you found this page, help yourself!) learn how to use WordPress and effectively manage their online content without our assistance.
Ongoing education is important when creating your own content online. As rapidly as this industry (web design, Internet marketing) changes and imporoves with technological advances, we are constantly re-educating ourselves and learning new ways to create engaging content online that is search engine friendly.
These tutorials are not in-depth by any means, but rather an overview of what you will encounter the most while using WordPress to manage your website or blog. For more in-depth and lengthy tutorials that cover every aspect of WordPress, we use and recommend Lynda.com. Their subscription price is $30/month and provides you access to every tutorial for every kind of software you can possibly think of.
Enjoy the tutorials – we really hope they help you get on track quickly. Contact Innovated Media if you have problems in WordPress that you can't figure out, or if you would like to request a custom WordPress tutorial for your website for $299.
