What previous attendees say about this webinar
Very helpful webinar to go through how to build a website using WordPress. I struggled when I tried to build one up without any training. So Good to Find this Free Webinar and also being introduced using other free tools!! Thank You!!
Very informative and helpful. Superbly presented, all questions answered and well worth attending. I'm not a newbie to Wordpress but I still learned a lot.
The free hours training on WordPress was really useful, Lorna and the team took the time to explain all the basics and answer all questions. They're also happy to help with a lot more if required which is reassuring.
I have just completed the Getting Started with Wordpress free webinar and it was more useful than I could have imagined. The instructors were concise, knowledgeable and told you wanted to know. Really helpful and friendly team and I am looking forward to my next session! Thanks.
The 'Getting Started on WordPress' webinar run by Rachel and her team was a very well spent hour that helped us to refresh our knowledge with the workings of WordPress and has given us the confidence to edit and update our existing website. We will certainly be checking out their other recorded webinars and would feel confident to ask for their help should we need it. Professional and precise
Really informative and helpful intro to Wordpress. The presentations are delivered in a friendly and professional manner and a lot was covered in an hour.
I attended the introduction to Wordpress webinar and it was spot on. Absolutely the right level of information, perfect for a beginner like me.
I did my first webinar with Awesome Tech Training yesterday all about getting started with WordPress. Not only was it a useful subject in my role as a Business Growth Specialist but it was well thought out and Lorna was an excellent presenter with the back up from Rachel and Steve providing a very slick process. Being shown how to do things is the way I learn, so watching Lorna demonstrate and explain live was very helpful. As a team they've thought of everything - including sending copies of the slides and a webinar recording to the attendees afterwards. They definitely deserve 5 stars in my opinion and will become one of my go-to resources!
A really good introduction to wordpress - I learned lots, and it was free! I've not seen much really effective zoom training, but this was excellent. Thank you!
Excellent introduction into Wordpress. Very informative webinar, topics explained clearly and in great detail in just an hour! Q&A session also very helpful. Thank you!
I had attended a Wordpress Webinar which was very informative and inspiring. Afterwards I had a few questions on a website I had created a couple of years ago and arranged a one to one session with Steve who was brilliant with guiding me through the many questions I had on improving it. We were able to share my screen so I was able to make the changes myself with his guidance and expertise. A great way of learning. Steve was very friendly and helpful and as well as knowledgable. Would highlly recommend this company.
A really excellent webinar: “Getting started with WordPress”. As a Wordpress 'newbie' in just one hour I learned a great deal that I can put to immediate use. Very helpful and friendly tutors. Highly recommended.
Just attended the WordPress training - absolutely brilliant. I've attended plenty of webinars for various things but this one really stood out for the clear and clean presentation. I didn't even slope off for a quick cuppa half-way through...
I signed up for this free webinar mainly out of curiosity since our small family-run business website uses WordPress but is administrated by someone else. My coding for web design knowledge is minimal to non-existent (I am a primary school computing teacher). The webinar was perfectly pitched - Lorna Walker went from the very beginnings of setting up a WordPress managed website into some of the more technical featuers of adding content. Her presentation was easy to follow, she explained things clearly to a non-specialist like me and her patience with answering a host of questions at the end was fantastic. In the background, Steve Hanlon was answering a raft of questions in the Q&A which was excellent, saved time, added extra content for those who wanted/needed it. Reference was made to plugins that you might want to enhace your website with signposting to additional training, videos and blogs on Awesome Tech Training's own website. All in all, a phenomenal amount of content was covered in a relaltively short (1 hour) webinar but it was easy to pick out what I needed and, from there, work out where to go for additional information. Not much is available for free these days - this is definitely a gem.
Excellent Zoom presentation about Wordpress for beginners. Very professional and really helpful.
I signed up for a free WordPress training session and was dubious of the quality. After all - it was free and I expected a catch. I am so glad I attended! The training was so good - I learnt so much and all my questions were answered. I will certainly be back for more training sessions on SEO, Linked In and Facebook for Businesses. The training is affordable unlike many other providers and is a reasonable length. Thank you so much!
Great intro to Wordpress, pitched just right
I just attended one of the Wordpress Webinars and I must say it was very informative. A lot of knowledge and tips were shared, all for free! Many thanks
