Looking to setup your business using a WordPress website or already have a WordPress website and want to know how to edit and update it?

Whenever Get Online Australia design a website for our small business customers we always include 1:1 Wordpress training.  Wordpress is software and like and software it comes with a learning curve.

A professional website is vital for any business, and great content, updated often, is one of the keys to attract new and returning visitors.  This is one of the great advantages of a WordPress website, once you are familiar with the software, updating it with new text, images and video becomes a breeze.

Understanding how your WordPress website works, plus how you and your team can manage and update its content is vital for your business marketing.  Of course, it isn’t for everyone which is why we offer digital marketing solutions and website suppport. Some people just prefer to get on with their core business and that is fine too.

We can provide one to one training or affordable online courses.  We also offer social media and digital marketing courses such as our very popular course How to Market your Small Business from your Smartphone.
