WordPress! You’ve heard and keep hearing the name. “THE way you should set up your website.” “THE way Google will better rank your website.” “THE #1 choice people are using to get their message, their writing, out to the world.”

Maybe you’ve heard that it can be difficult. Maybe you’ve even tried to use it and got stuck. Maybe you reasoned, “That’s fine for someone else, but I’ll stick to what I have.”

Maybe you should check it out again … just in case. Or maybe you should find out what a veteran website developer and writer wants to share with you to help you reach more people with your writing.

Did you know these OUTSTANDING statistics?

·         23% of ALL websites globally use WordPress
·         50,000 new WordPress websites are added EVERY DAY
·         555 MILLION posts were published on WordPress sites just LAST YEAR

So what do all those website owners know that you don’t? Can they all be that tech-savvy? Maybe you should take another look?

Would you like to know:
·         What’s absolutely ESSENTIAL to include in your website?
·         What’s new with WordPress that has everyone so excited?
·         How can you set up a complete website with WordPress without spending a fortune?
·         How can you completely freshen or change the look of your site without having to touch every page?
·         How can you do things like link to your book on Amazon, include a YouTube video or Facebook post, or add new capabilities to your website without knowing how to program?
·         How can get your website noticed by Google?
·         What are the best plugins you could be using for free?
·         And much, much more!

Invest a few hours of your time to learn something new that can make your life easier, save you money and improve your presence to the world. Join us on Saturday, July 18, to learn what you need to know about WordPress for Writers.
