Website Training Workshops for Beginners is one of the core training areas for In a Day. Our foundation courses are designed specifically for people with little or no web development skills or experience.
As with all In a Day workshops – our Website Training Courses have a very strong “hands on” component, so that our students get to learn by experience not just by a trainer telling or showing them how it is done.
We offer a variety of One Day Workshops as outlined below, and also have a series of introductory mini workshops which run for just 2 hrs and provide a basic grounding in the topic (along with the opportunity for you to ask whatever questions you like).
This one day workshop guides the absolute beginner through the process of establishing your own website. So at the end of the day you have a fully functional website that you have created yourself. This course covers Domain Registration, Web Hosting, WordPress Installation and Setup, WordPress Theme selection and configuration, and content creation.
Having a website is a great way to start, but getting the website found in search results, growing traffic to your site, and most importantly getting sales or enquiries online is usually the reason you got a website in the first place. We are careful to ensure that all sites created in our website workshops (or website development services) are search engine friendly (and this is one reason we choose WordPress as the development platform), but there are extra steps that can be taken to give your site a boost.
Search Engine Optimisation describes a number of activities aimed at improving rankings, increasing traffic and maximising conversions. We offer a number of SEO Training Workshops for both beginners and more advanced users.
One of the fascinating things about an online business, is that so many aspects of it can be measured and monitored – making it much easier to determine what is working and what needs to be improved. Your websites site usage statistics (Analytics) provide a huge (sometimes daunting) amount of information about your users and how they interact with your site.
Our Web Analytics workshop is aimed at beginners, who recognise the business value of understanding their users, but are a bit confused or put off by all the data available, and are not quite sure where to get started or what data is likely to be most relevant to them.
This workshop guides you through the process of understanding and analysing you websites usage statistics, and helps you determine how to make decisions and act on it.
