WordPress is a great platform that allows you to start your own website or blog quickly and easily, even if you don’t have a lot of website developer experience. Unfortunately, a lot of beginners get bogged down due to the sheer amount of information out there, and they have trouble focusing their WordPress learning on things which will actually help them.
With this in mind, we have compiled a list of our top ten WordPress tips for beginners, including:
- Keep it simple:
If you aren’t an experienced web developer, don’t jump straight in the deep end and try to create the next eBay or Amazon. Keep it simple, and start small. Choose a subject which interests you, which you know a lot about, and which you feel there is a need for on the internet. Base your first website around this.
- Start slowly:
Although a lot of people just want to get their website up and running, it simply isn’t something which happens overnight if you aren’t an experienced developer. Start out slowly, take your time, and let your website come together over the course of a few weeks.
- Learn what you can:
There is a huge amount of information about WordPress out there. Before you start building your website make sure that you do some research. Read articles, learn how to upload images, watch videos, and learn from people who have already built successful sites.
