    Setting up a simple website
    Friday, 20 July 2018

    OVERVIEW

    The course: Learn how to set up a simple and low cost website in WordPress for your freelance editing business. Gain the confidence and information to control your own website – you don’t need to be a tech guru. Learn how to talk to a website designer if you prefer that option. The workshop covers planning and research for your website as well as the technical details of what to do with easy-to-use WordPress and how to use it.  The day will be most beneficial if attendees bring a laptop (either Windows or Mac), but not essential. Notes provided and in workshop demonstrations.

    Sessions include:

    • Understanding the role of your website in your marketing strategy
    • Planning the content and structure of your website
    • Setting up a simple website in WordPress: choosing a website name and the look; creating pages including a blog; and adding text, images, attachments and links
    • Getting the most from your website after set up: promote, monitor and update
    • Creating a free website through your LinkedIn profile
    • Tips and resources.

    The presenter: Dr Rhonda Daniels AE established her freelance editing business Right with Rhonda in 2013 and set up her own website with WordPress at  www.rightwithrhonda.com.au.
