Why Use WordPress?

People choose WordPress because it’s an easy platform to use. WordPress has a lot to offer regardless of whether you are new or experienced in building websites. It’s entirely customizable, and its plugin and theme systems can enable you to build almost any type of site you’d like. You can sell products and services from your own website and if you enjoy blogging you can publish articles to the internet on health and fitness, travelling, cooking… anything you are passionate about and… you will get a following in the process.


Creating a website and then help people meet their needs whilst achieving your business goals is useful and fun. More so if everything is free:

• FREE easy-to-build professional website (free themes, plugins and widgets)

• and FREE hosting.

One can now create beautiful websites on the free version of WordPress.com.

What past participants are saying about this Training:

“The internet made fun and I got new friends. Thanks!”  Beatrice
