Product Review: WordPress Classroom

WordPress Classroom – The Best Training for WordPress

I have personally been a member WordPress Classroom for several years. I can also state that of all the training I have seen, Matt Wolfes’ WordPress Classroom is THE BEST training for using and optimizing WordPress. Now this is saying a lot, but it is true.

I found WP training here and there after doing searches and wasting a lot of my valuable time and money, and then being disappointed from the outcome. Then I found a link to Matt’s FREE Videos on WordPress Classroom. To be honest with you I learned more from the free videos than the training I purchased from other vendors. All this information in one place for one price…FREE.

I was totally amazed by the content and presentation. Another thing I liked was length of the videos, short and to the point. All of the training is focused to individual topics so you can find what you need quickly and easily.

So what kind of training is offered? Well below is a list of the free videos, so you can get an idea of what Matt has to offer.

Make Money With The WordPress Classroom 2.0

Now that you know the basic stuff, if you upgrade to WordPress Classroom 2.0 Pro there are 59 videos (as of 30 August 2010) (update: 24 March 2013 – over 150 videos) and new videos being added all the time. As a matter of fact you can request that Matt makes a specific video.

There is a very active forum on the site where you can learn from each others experiences as well as get specific direction from Matt (he is in there all the time). You also have a chance to help others in here. Did you know that by helping others that you can gain traffic and members for your site? (update: I am the main WordPress Classroom Forum Moderator)

WordPress Classroom – Forum

Within the forum there is even a specific area for creating Joint Ventures, ad trades, guest posting, and link trading. This can help you grow your business and make friends with other marketers in your niche.

WordPress Classroom – Traffic Exchange

Matt offer’s a Traffic Exchange area where you can add your site(s) and find other sites that you can comment on to create links to your site(s) and in turn others can comment on your site.

There are also free WP Themes, bonus gifts and more.

I have not found much to complain about on this site. I have never been disappointed with anything about this site. Matt loves to get input from his clients and makes changes to please. He really cares about his members and wants people to feel at home.

I am still a paid member of WordPress Classroom and I’m not planning on moving anywhere else for a long time to come. I like that WordPress Classroom help people that are just starting out all the way to some of the big name marketers. If you want to know more, I have written more about the WordPress Classroom in my Marketing Tool and Methods area.

WordPress – The most used Platform on the Web.

Blogging is familiar the World-Over now, and here’s a good reason for this. It’s an easy platform to use to get your work noticed out on the World Wide Web. There are almost no restrictions. Not so long ago, unless you could write the most professional content, publishing houses wouldn’t want to know you. With Blogs, anyone with an ability to write, or upload pictures, can get exposure. The WordPress Platform provides the base. Plugins provide specific code to accomplish things you wish to add. Some plugins that most people use include Search Engine Optimization, Forums, Membership, eStore, Advertisement, Gallery, Location Map, Site Map, Google Analytics….you get the idea. There our thousands of free or premium plugins for you to use.

WordPress -The Four Reasons

1. What do you want your site to be about? What do you want to tell the World? Do you have a business you wish to promote, and need a highly versatile, adaptable platform from which to run it? You’ll need something which supports easy editing, and adding new material to it as develops and matures. WordPress will handle all this with an ease that may surprise you. Maybe it’ll stretch your imagination too, and prompt you to think of new approaches for your business marketing strategy, once you see just how much you can do with it.

2. WordPress uses “Plug-ins” which are additional software downloads that you simply plug-in to your WP software. Search Google for WP plug-ins that support name and email collection codes for your newsletter. Then offer a freebie in exchange for your visitor’s details and when you have a few names collected, Google again – for a feedback or survey plug-in to solicit feedback from those same visitors who signed in to your site. You could of course just ask visitors straight from the page Ask them if they like your theme, and the content you’re offering them. Now use their feedback to create a better, more attractive site for them. You can snowball this to create a really wonderful site. All thanks to WP.

3. Some Blogging platforms are better than others, and this is where we focus in on WordPress, over others such as Blogger.com. This is because it’s self-hosted and belongs to you accordingly. It’s better if you can self-host because then you’ve 100% control over all you do with it. WordPress.com is an easier option, but rather sensitive to content that promotes in the commercial sense; and after all, making a profit online is what you’re all about. WP is definitely the way to go.

4. Another good feature of WordPress blogging platforms is pagination. You may wish to add separate pages to your website, and WordPress facilitates features which support such things as contact-me, site map, home, articles, and privacy statement pages. You may wish to be more diverse and discuss related sub-niches too, besides your main niche; so use additional pages for this – in all just a couple of clicks away.

You already know that I just love the WordPress platform. Almost everyone who is anyone on the internet uses it. Why? That is easy….cost! The cost is zero to download the platform and there are a bunch of free themes for the looks and hundreds of free plug-ins to make your site do almost anything you can imagine, and some you can’t imagine. You can also have custom themes and plugins created by a multitude of developers for very affordable costs. The other good thing is that you do not have to add all the options at one time. You can add options as you need them.

So how do you learn how to use WordPress to the fullest? Good question, and I have the answer, it is Matt Wolfe’s WordPress Classroom 2.0. Just click the banner to get access to some F*R*E*E WordPress video’s. These will help you set up a WP site of your own. Then if you really want to learn about all that WP can do, upgrade to the Pro version and get access to a bunch more of step by step learning videos, a Traffic Exchange, a Forum with direct access to Matt’s and others expertise, plus extra Bonus’s right from the site. There is new content every month, and if you have a video request on a specific topic, Matt will be glad to accommodate you.

I’ve been a Pro user of WordPress Classroom since 2009 and Matt has helped me dramatically improve my business and always provides additional content on a regular basis. I know that WordPress Classroom could help you as it helped me. I also believe that this will be one of your most valued tools if you are looking to use WordPress.

Anyone can use WordPress software and my advice to you is to learn WP because it’s probably the most versatile and easy ways to build a professional looking website for your online business platform.

This is due to the 100% flexible, customizable nature of WP. You can upload WP from either their own .com website, or if you have a web hosting platform, from there instead. From its own .com site, it’s free, but they can tend to favor non-commercially based sites, and lack the complete flexibility you get from self-hosting. However, you shouldn’t let that deter you, as both ways are really good.

“What inspires me now, is traditional country music,” says Stuart. “It’s the music I most cherish, the culture in which I was raised. The bedrock upon which the empire of country music is built, the empowering force that provides this genre with lasting credibility. This is beyond trends and it’s timeless. With all that being said, I found traditional country music to be on the verge of extinction. It’s too precious to let slip away. I wanted to attempt to write a new chapter.” Read the rest of this entry
