Wordpress Tutorials Description

Sherman Hu is an expert in using blogs and Wordpress for website development and promotion. He is a pioneer in web 2.0 and using media to reach customers and win over new prospects. His site ShermanLive.com offers content that help business owners demystify and profit with new marketing methods such as podcasts, online video, screencasting, web 2.0, blogs and more.

He coaches thousands of business owners through videos and web conferences on using Wordpress as a content management solution and marketing channel. He also runs a video show at ShermanHu.tv called the “Half Hour Huddle” that aims to answer the most burning questions and address challenges about using new media to grow your business.

Wordpress Tutorials Detailed Overview

Over the last few years, blogging has become the choice for webmaster to publish their content because of the efficiency and for its SEO benefits. The advantages of instant publishing, social networks, and customization tools has led to the content management system Wordpress becoming one of the most widely used systems for web development and publishing.

Sherman runs the site WordpressTutorials.com and the membership is one of the best training sites for learning how to blog, build websites, and market with Wordpress. What will you find in the membership? Is the training reliable and worth investing in? I’ll answer the answers to all these questions in this article.

To start off, Sherman states that blogging gives you a platform to develop readers that follow your content, like your perspective, trust your opinions, and are open to your marketing message. This platform can help you become a thought leader in your industry, creating brand recognition and authority if done right.

I have to agree with this stance. And because of the popularity of podcasting, audio, and video, your content goes far beyond simple text on a website. It becomes easier to connect with your audience when you’re using your voice, and presenting yourself in a video. It makes you a real person than an invisible entity hiding behind a website.

That said, the Wordpress Tutorials membership takes you through a 5 module video course that helps you set up your site using Wordpress as a publishing vehicle, customize your Wordpress design and theme, set up automated tools/plug-ins, and explores advanced topics such as using RSS feeds and marketing your blog.

In addition to the 5 part course, there are archives of podcasts and teleseminars that have been conducted with experts on blogging and related topics. Every month, a live video conference is organized for further education. Case studies of successful blogs, live critiques and suggestions are given in these conferences to help members. The amount of content takes some time to digest so I recommend going through the main 5 part video course then slowly digging into the archives.

The most helpful part of the membership is the Video FAQs. When members ask questions, an answer in video format goes is created for you to watch. This really helps cut the learning curve and helps you figure out any common problems with Wordpress.

Finally, there is also a forum where you can ask for help if you get stuck. I found that my questions were answered on a timely basis. While I can’t say the forum is exactly buzzing with hot topics, it is active and members are not ignored by the staff. This lack of discussions may be because many Wordpress issues are discussed in the training videos and the video FAQs.

Wordpress Tutorials Reputation

The Wordpress Tutorials membership is an incredible value for those who want to build their website, blog, and learn how to market it. There isn’t a more comprehensive guide and easier way to apply Wordpress training product in the market. The videos cover almost everything you can think of and there are constant content updates to the site. The video FAQ is one of my favorite features as the visual aid really helps in solving many common issues with Wordpress.

A monthly subscription costs $9.95 and an annual one is $97. There is a lifetime subscription option but at $750, I don’t think it is a great value for the average Internet marketer. I recommend going with the annual subscription as it knocks off 2 months cost of the membership. There is a lot of content in this membership and you will want to keep coming back to refer to it over the months. Because there are no refunds, you may want to start out with the monthly subscription and move over to the annual option if you decide you like the content inside.

A good package mostly for new bloggers

I love this package and it has really helped me in blogging. It's good and should purposely be recommended for newbies and beginners in blogging and sometimes, for the pro or gurus.

It contains videos and other illustrations and topics that can also be used by advanced bloggers. I have really gained experience from it and now it has really made me a blogger. Anyway, I think the price of this product is averagely reasonable, that is a year payment of 250$. They have covered enough steps on how to install your WordPress.

The day I came across this WordPress tutorial site, I read the reviews, grabbed a copy, went through it and I found out that their presentation was convincing and educating.

My blogs have increased and my income has increased since I am able to have good websites and that look highly attractive.

Too Much Of Stating The Obvious

Before anyone gets the wrong impression, Wordpress itself is second to none for creating blogs for all levels of user.

I really found the early part of the tutorials a step back in time and likened them to the introduction of a Microsoft 2003/2007 product where it guides you through the basics of buttons and toolbars. The dashboard is very user friendly and could be conquered without the need for not very cheap tutorials. For a newbie they provide good, basic introduction content for plug-ins, keywords & themes. The tutorials do rise to value with the design, installation, activation & previewing for Wordpress themes.

Alternative Wordpress tutorials readily available within the cost of your broadband, just start digging.

Simple Homepage but Confusing at First

Like everybody, I'm learning to be a blogger. But I was confused where do I start. This site helped me to be a blog writer using wordpress. They have explicit explanation about wordpress, of course that's why they site called wordpresstutorials.com

The first thing I saw when I got to the website is a confusing homepage, with big image with hyperlink, I don't know which way to start reading.

So I just click one of the images, and luckily it is the first article to read. So I just read and read until I found out about blogging and wordpress. Now, I have three blogs and will continuously grow more.

Thanks to the wordpresstutorials.com team for making a blogger today.

Good for beginners only

There are a lot of helpful tips that Wordpress Tutorials shows you, and I have learned some from some of these also. However, I don't think you should have to pay for this when you can get the same tips if you search online. It might be a good way for beginners to learn about Wordpress in the least amount of time, but if you're not, then you shouldn't waste your time and money.

Very Good For Beginners

I just started my own Music Blog. When I used the templates that WP gave me I wasn't very impressed. Then on a Google Search I came up with this website. I thought hmm should I try it? So then I'm like okay whatever. I bought this package, and I must say the things I learned from this, WP will never teach me. My music blog even increased in revenue since my website looked very nice. Thanks to this I learned how to edit the CSS, add custom widgets, etc. This was very helpful for me and I am glad I bought it.

Good for new wordpress users

I am using Wordpress for some of my blogs and I am very pleased with it. It looks good and it is easy to use. I found Wordpress Tutorials when I still didn't know anything about this system. It was very useful for me because I was a newbie. There you can learn everything about Wordpress - what is blogging, different kinds of blogging, how to install Wordpress and lots of other helpful information. I liked the videos from Wordpress Tutorials. There are many videos and they cover many topics - from the basics to tips for advanced bloggers. I learned a lot from this and now I can say I am a good blogger. Anyway, I think the price of this product is high - a year subscription costs 250$. If you can pay it and you want to know a lot of things about Wordpress, you can buy it.

Good For Beginners

I used to do blogging then my friend told me about this thing called “Wordpress”. I was very much amazed by it. I tried creating a website there, but the website was not so good looking as they were not letting you change themes to user defined themes and plug-ins too. They are providing open source code script to host it on your web host and there you change the themes and plug-ins the way you want. But I was had no idea on how to do it. Then one day I came across this Wordpress tutorial site, I read the reviews there and quickly grabbed a copy and studied through the material. I was really amazed by their presentation of this thing. They have covered enough steps on how to install your Wordpress on your host and then modify it and finalize it with some great plug-ins. And now I have created a better looking website with this tutorial thanks to Wordpress Tutorial.

Wordpress Tutorials Made My Website

When I first registered through the Wordpress website I created a site by going through the tutorials I just found on Google and the result was that the site doesn’t seem much good to me. But when I came across this I was very much surprised with this. Everything here is described in detail and step by step. Another thing is that all the techniques and tutorials here are all in one place so you don’t have to Google around for hours and find the piece of information you want. After going through this, the website which I finally created was better and much professional looking than before.

As a Newbie to Wordpress it's ideal

Yes, I do agree that the Wordpress Tutorial is a bit expensive, but I have definitely found it worth it. As a beginner blogger, and a newcomer to Wordpress, I had no idea where to start. Wordpress Tutorial was packed full of useful information and tips. I found it easy to understand, without the use of a lot of jargon which is good, as many of the tutorial type products for beginners seem to talk in gibberish and expect newbies to understand the terminology like PLR.

Worth the money?

The tutorials are good enough, and I found them to be helpful and understandable. Taught me several new things about WordPress I didn't know before, however I'm not so sure it's worth the price. A valuable asset, yet something that could be learned slower without the money hassle.

The best WordPress Tutorials Online

Before I started reading these tutorials I didn't really like Wordpress much at all. Mostly because I couldn't figure out a lot of little things that made a big difference. I started my subscription for Wordpress tutorials and have to admit they are very organized and helpful. They taught me many ways to achieve my specific goals in my blogs. I wanted to be able to attract the traffic that was being sent to my site via Traffic Exchanges so that they would spend much more time reviewing my site and looking around to see what I had to offer. I do love knowing all of these easy tips and things to help with my blogging, but I don't think the price should be so high. For a while, it was very worth it, though. I was generating more active referrals for all of my PTC and GPT sites, and I loved it. I recommend this for Newbies at WordPress and people that aren't good with design and keywords.

A Costly Tutor

I wanted to make a new blog other than the one I have with blogger, and accidentally found wordpress. The site was OK but I wanted to make it more appealing, so I searched again for Wordpress Tutorials.

Well, for a beginner, you can learn new things from the videos like themes and plug-ins. And there is also the video FAQ to help you with. You will enjoy the tutorials for designs and themes.

However, the monthly subscription of $9.95 is a bit costly for the tutorials if you're on a strict budget. Just learn to figure things out with wordpress on your own.
