This is a two hour course that will walk new bloggers through the basics of blogging on the WordPress platform.

Why is it special? We normally do not train the basics of using WordPress here on Tomato U – reserving these topics for our Real Estate Tomato Website Packages.  Our main focus on TU is generally on marketing techniques, assuming that most of our audience is already somewhat familiar with the platform.  Well… popular demand has shown us otherwise – so we are trying out this intense, 2-hour, everything-you-always-wanted-to-know-about-using-WordPress class with the intentions of adding it to our regular quarterly calendar.

The class will include in depth discussions on the following:

  • TULogo2Creating and Editing Posts & Pages
  • Article Styling
  • Finding, Sizing & Placing Images
  • Creating and Managing Links
  • Understanding Categories & Tags
  • Sidebar & Widget Control
  • A WordPress Plugin Primer
  • Basics of Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
  • Development of Writing and Topic Strategies
  • Basics of Real Estate Blogging.

Due to the limited length of the class, and not wanting to completely overwhelm our students some of the advanced topics will be limited in their depth.  Many of these advanced subjects are expanded upon in other Tomato University classes.

Please note, this class does not include instructions on installation of WordPress and we will assume that you already have a site set up.

If you do not yet have a WordPress based website, please contact us and we’ll help you get started.

PS – We have also just posted a new class covering the basics of HTML in blogging.  A little familiarity of the code that governs the styling of articles, links, tables, and images can go a long way.  Check it out too!
