Ready … Set … Blog!
Whether you want to start a blog, improve the impact of your blogging, or expand the reach of your posts, success in blogging means more than just writing an article and publishing it on your website. Blogging is a proven way to illustrate your expertise and increase your visibility, and WordPress is the leading blogging platform.
Once your website developer has created your site, it’s up to you to utilize it to the fullest. Do you struggle to write posts that capture the attention of readers? What are the best ways to get more people to see your blog posts? And how do you navigate the back end of your website? This workshop is designed for the marketer or business owner who wishes to blog on WordPress as part of an integrated content strategy.
From managing plug-ins to social sharing, choosing keywords to handling comments, reducing spam to crafting metatags — there is a lot to understand about navigating the back end of your website. We’ll discuss not just the must-do’s but also the whys and how-to’s.
Most of us learn best by doing. If you wish, bring your login credentials and access the back end of your own site for some hands-on learning about blogging on WordPress.
