I am thinking about putting together a comprehensive training course on how to set-up and build your website, from scratch, using WordPress. Over the last year, I have been converting all of my websites over to WordPress. I have learned a ton, and it is so much more powerful than I originally thought.
In any case, I know there are many "drag & drop" site building services out there, but they are extremely limited. I feel those new to web development are intimidated by many platforms (including WordPress), and shy away from them. For whatever the reason, I'd like some feedback/honest opinions about if you think this would be a useful training course.
I would set it up as separate video training modules, and go over everything from purchasing cheap hosting/domain names, getting WordPress set up on your new domain, and then go into explaining how WordPress sites are structured and how simple it is to create content rich websites and landing pages. I would give you a real "over my shoulder" look into a few of my actual sites that I built using WordPress, and also include lessons on integrating auto-responders (for list building) and publishing different types of offers, either using "Buy" buttons or CPA offers, etc.
I feel many people are either paying ALOT to have a webmaster set up their site/landing pages for them, or paying subscription fees for some of the "drag and drop" website creators, which in my opinion are very limited as to what you can do.
With WordPress, you CAN create awesome sites quickly & easily...and you have full control over the offers, building your list, making edits, etc. Anyway, apologies for the long explanation...right now, creating a training course is just a thought, and I'd like some feedback from all levels (newbies to experienced IMers) as to whether you think this would be wanted by the IM community. If the demand/need isnt there, there is no point i me investing a ton of my time developing it. Also, to be clear, this would be a paid product...I was thinking of making it a one time payment (under $100) for access to a members area that contained all of the training videos and materials.
Thanks in advance for the honest feedback!
