Workshop

Bring your wifi-enabled laptop, get online with an elegant, simple WordPress.com website, and create the content your audience is looking for.
In this hands-on workshop, we'll:

Learn to tell your story with text, photos, audio & video* using the tools you already have.
Understand how to measure results using the simple, built-in statistics.
Understand the WordPress universe, including WordPress.com, WordPress.org, etc.
You'll leave with a blog and a strategy that you can use to go to the next level for your organization, product or service.
Plus, it'll be fun:-)
