WordPress: Beyond Blogging

5,514

Published on

WordPress is for blogging, right?

Well, you can do a whole lot more with WordPress.

WordPress can used to build a regular web site, no blog, just web pages. It can be the home for your podcasting episodes. It can also be used a media center, for showcasing photos and videos. WordPress can even be used as the basis of an eCommerce store.

We will cover these topics and you will see how to:

Use the WordPress Menu features to create multiple navigation menus and submenus
Create a media center for photos or videos
Create a portfolio site for your creative design business
Create advertising zones for ads and affiliate links
Use eCommerce plugins to create a full-featured e-business

  • Thanks guys! Dan, the survey data are published:

  • One key point from Matt's Presentation was the $50 per hour rate he mentioned for WordPress designers / developers. The $50 rate is a worldwide rate and Matt has indicated that they will 'open source' the results and post them online once they have removed personal data from the survey.

    This will enable people to back into a U.S. WordPress designer / developer rate or a Texas rate and hopefully enough data to compute a DFW rate! They also asked for experience levels so perhaps there might be the possibility to see what people are charging who have comparable work experience.

    FYI, one other thing I recall Matt saying was that they excluded the $5 per hour and $2000 per hour datapoint from the dataset to compute the $50 per hour rate.

    Great presentation Tony,

    Dan Ross
