Teach Your Clients How To Use WordPress Easily With WPTrainMe

  1. 1. wpt rainme.com http://wptrainme.com/wordpress-training/wptrainme-easiest-way-train-clients-use-wordpress WPTrainMe – The Easiest And Most Profitable Way To Teach Clients How To Use WordPress Don’t Just Teach Clients WordPress … Help Them Get Results! Do you build WordPress websites f or businesses, or sell any other WordPress-related services? If so, do you also provide your clients with WordPress training? If you do, consider what would happen if you asked your clients the f ollowing question at the start of your training session: I’ve just built you a website using a powerful application called WordPress. Now I’m going to train you how to use your new WordPress site. Do you want me to teach you: a) How to use WordPress to create a new page and add some content to it, or b) How to use WordPress to automatically drive more targeted visitors to your site, get better search engine rankings, get more visibility online for your business on social media sites, generate more leads, more sales, more opt-in subscribers, increase your conversion rates and make your business more profitable … in addition to basic stuff like how to create a page and add some content to it? Which of the above options do you think your clients would choose? If you were your own client, which of the above methods would you rather be shown af ter getting your website built? Which of the above options do you think would increase the value of your WordPress services and allow you to charge clients more? In this post we look at the training methods most website service providers use to teach their clients about using WordPress and why these are mostly inef f ective. We will then show you why the WordPress system we
  2. 2. spent over 3 years developing is ef f ective, and why this system is the easiest way to train clients how to use WordPress. How Do You Teach Your Clients WordPress? Consider the screenshot below, which shows some of the typical responses given by a number of WordPress service providers to an online discussion by a group of WordPress experts on LinkedIn which asked them “How Do You Train Your WordPress Clients?” …
  3. 3. The above responses (and our own research and experience) indicate that many website service providers choose the f ollowing methods to teach their clients how to use WordPress: Providing one-on-one training (either on site or online, e.g. skype, phone, etc …) with an average duration of 1-2 hours, Providing clients with PDF guides and/or videos. How Effective Is Your WordPress Training Method? Do you use any of the above methods to train your clients? If so, how ef f ective are they? Do they empower your clients to get the results they want to achieve with their WordPress sites that we discussed earlier? Consider this … Why do so many women (and increasingly men also) spend money on beauty products? It’s not because of the “active ingredients” used in the cosmetics, but because women (and men) want to look younger and more attractive. In other words, clients who buy cosmetic products don’t care about how their lotions and potions work as much as they care about the results that these products are supposed to deliver. In a similar way, clients want websites because they want to experience better results in their business. So … Does the WordPress training method you are currently using show clients how to grow their business more profitably using WordPress? In our experience, one hour ‘one-on-one’ training sessions and PDFs or videos that only teach clients the basic mechanics of using WordPress can only take a client so f ar. They don’t really empower businesses to grow online and achieve sustainable results. Af ter using these same methods to train our own clients, we noticed that clients would typically leave the initial training session smiling and happy, but when we f ollowed up with them around 90 days af terwards, the same client that was handed the keys to this amazing vehicle – a website built with WordPress, would then report that not much was happening with their site. Their ef f orts to grow their business online would of ten simply come to a halt.
  4. 4. At f irst, we believed our clients when they said they were just “too busy” to do the things we showed them during their ‘one-on-one’ training session. Gradually, however, we came to understand that the reason why our clients just “stopped” was not because they were “too busy” as they said … it was because when it comes to getting results online, there’s so much more to learn than what was being covered in their training session and the PDFs and videos, that, without an ef f ective step-by-step system to f ollow and regular guidance or mentoring, clients would simply end up f eeling completely overwhelmed and conf used about what to do next. The reason why many business owners of ten come to a complete standstill af ter being handed “the keys” to their new WordPress site, is because they are not being truly empowered to grow their business and achieve the results they would like to experience. They are not being taught how to actually “drive” their online vehicle to any successf ul destination, or given an ef f ective road map to f ollow; they are only being shown a f ew “buttons to press” in their vehicle’s dashboard that get some lights blinking, but makes nothing actually move f orward. The reality is, without a caref ully constructed and ef f ective step- by-step training system, there is just simply too much inf ormation f or clients to learn and “too many dots” f or them to connect in order to achieve the results they want. Creating An Effective Step-By-Step WordPress Training System Is Not Easy Creating an ef f ective step-by-step WordPress training system is not an easy task by any means. It requires spending an inordinate and exhaustive amount of time planning, researching, documenting, troubleshooting and testing every single step of the process to make sure that users can easily f ollow every step without getting lost, conf used or overwhelmed … If you are busy building web sites for clients (or looking for new clients to service), how do you find the time to create a truly effective training system? A one or two-hour training session can’t even begin to help someone connect all of the dots. It may be a practical way to sign of f on a new website and leave the client f eeling good about your services, but if the content of your WordPress training is not an organized system that can ef f ectively help your clients get the results they want, then simply throwing inf ormation at them is only going to overwhelm and conf use your clients f urther. They are either going to come to a complete standstill, or they are going to look f or easier solutions elsewhere. Because WordPress is constantly changing, PDFs and videos can be dif f icult to keep training content up-to-
  5. 5. date. Using distributable training resources like PDFs also requires having an excellent document management system to keep track of which changes have been made in which document version, and which version has been distributed to which user. Additionally, one of the biggest challenges of training clients to use WordPress, is that most website developers are not a “product of their product”. In other words, they haven’t learned to use WordPress the same way that they are trying to teach it to others. Most people who build WordPress sites f or others are of ten self -taught WordPress users who have acquired technical knowledge and skills f rom many dif f erent sources and online resources. This makes evaluating the ef f ectiveness of a training method aimed at helping non-technical users get results a dif f icult task. Now … at this point you may be thinking “Hang on! It’s not my job to teach clients how to get results online! My job is only to build them a website and then show them how to use it! Whether their business ultimately succeeds or fails is not my concern!” Okay, f air enough, but here’s the point … WordPress can deliver your clients the results they want … if they have a training system that shows them how! With an expertly conf igured WordPress site, the right training system and a little personal assistance f rom their web service provider to make sure that everything is going well, your clients can experience a steady growth in visitors, better search engine rankings, more visibility online on social media sites, more leads, more sales, more subscribers, increased conversion rates, and so on … without going somewhere else to f ind the answers they need! A website built with WordPress can deliver phenomenal results for any business. The question is … are you teaching your clients how to achieve phenomenal results using WordPress? Or are you just giving clients the same old ‘quick start’ training that will probably bring them to an eventual standstill? Af ter trying all of the above methods (i.e. one-on-one training, videos, PDFs, etc.) and experiencing all of the challenges and issues described thus f ar, we decided to build something dif f erent. Would you like to know about a better and easier way to train clients that can FREE up your time so you can f ocus on growing your web services business while also helping you grow your clients business? If so, let me share with you the easiest way to teach your clients how to use WordPress and help them get the results they expect f rom their new website. Introducing … WPTrainMe!

  7. 7. web design or web development, then ask yourself the f ollowing questions: Would you rather spend your valuable time f inding and servicing new clients and growing your business, or training and supporting existing clients? What if you could do both (i.e. f ind new clients and train existing clients) at the same time, by being smart about the way you train your clients to use WordPress? What if your clients could continue to be trained to use WordPress in their own time, while you invest your time into looking f or new clients to service? What if the above could be turned into a simple “rinse and repeat” system where your clients are getting the best WordPress training possible (and loving you f or it!), and you are f inding and servicing new clients and adding massive value to both your and your clients’ businesses? Now … you probably have your own method f or teaching clients to use WordPress, so let me ask you this … If you f ound a smarter and more ef f ective way to train your clients than the method you are currently using to teach clients WordPress, and … This training system saved you more time, was more prof itable and easier to implement than the method you are currently using, and … This training system empowered your clients to get better results than the method you are currently using … Would you consider switching to the better training method?

  8. 8. essential WordPress “how-tos”, or install the BASIC or BUSINESS edition f or tutorials that will empower them to use WordPress to grow their business online, yet still leave you with room to of f er them additional services like WordPress management, optimization, security, etc. (all of these areas are covered in the PRO edition). Step 2 – Schedule An Initial WordPress Training Session All you need to do af ter installing the plugin on your clients’ sites is show them how to access the tutorials. This is your initial training session. You can go over the same basics as you were doing bef ore (e.g. how to create a new post, add content, etc …). The dif f erence, however, is that now your clients have a complete system they can f ollow that can help them grow beyond just the very basics, and ongoing up-to-date help they access any time f rom their own dashboard. Step 3 – Provide Ongoing Client Support Af ter showing clients how to access the WPTrainMe tutorials, simply agree to “touch base” with them on a regular basis (e.g. every 90 days or so) and see how they are progressing along.

  11. 11. It’s a f act that most business owners are simply too busy to do everything themselves, even if they are given the resources that show them step-by- step how they can do it themselves.
