WordPress Training

As part of the typical website package Smiling Spiders will train clients on how to use WordPress. The best way to promote your business is to regularly update your website and you can do this very easily through WordPress, in the form of a blog. Of course you don’t have to refer to it as a blog – many people prefer to call it “News”.

The WordPress training involves signing on the the backend, creating new users ,creating and updating posts and pages etc.

I also recognise that there are a lot of people out there who have perfectly good websites but don’t know how to update them. For this we offer a one on one WordPress session. The cost of this is €150 for a half day or €300 for a full day. Additional top up sessions are charged at €60 per hour.

Smiling Spiders also does WordPress training courses.

One of these courses runs regularly in Mullingar Community College. It’s an 8 week night course which takes place on Wednesdays from 7-9.

We also do one and two day courses in a classroom setting.
