WordPress Tutor – 5 Reasons You Need One

A WordPress Tutor can be very beneficial to your bottom line and your sanity.  Here is why.

Many people are a little hesitant to acquire the services of a WordPress tutor, but the reality is that a tutor can actually save you money and sanity.  A good WordPress tutor can:

We can show you WordPress Shortcuts that you may not have seen before

A good WordPress Tutor can show you a couple of techniques that will help you with posts, pages, and general upkeep of your site.  They can also offer best practices to use when making a WP site.  If you've ever attempted to learn something that is really complex and had someone say, "That's easy just do ..."  and you got an "aha" moment, then you'll probably have that same moment with a tutor.  

Those couple of minutes of tutoring can possibly save you hours of frustration.

A WordPress Trainer can give you insight as to which plugins are the most popular, most effective, and the best fit for your application.

WordPress Training Can Give you ideas on plugins or functionality that will cut down development time

WordPress has hundreds of plugins available.  Just look at wordpress.org to see all of the new and wonderful plugins being developed.  A WordPress Trainer can give you insight as to which plugins are the most popular, most effective, and the best fit for your application.  

Often as new WordPress users, you may be tempted to grab the first plugin that looks good - however, a good tutor will likely tell you a plugin that offers better functionality and offers things such as less load on the server, or one that keeps up to date with WordPress.

Another great reason to get WordPress tutoring is that there are times when you need to purchase themes and plugins.  While WordPress is great, open-source, and essentially free - there are times when it makes much more sense to pay for a premium theme or plugin in order to get your project done faster, and with better support.  

This can save you time on the backend as well when your free plugin may not work anymore because it didn't follow the best coding practices, or when you needs change and the developer no longer supports the code.

You could spend 10 hours trying to figure out exactly what's going on, or you can spend less than 1 hour getting help and moving on to more important things.

A WordPress Tutor Can Provide a visual step by step guide as to how to get things done

Most people are visual learners.  A WordPress tutor can help you with your particular application.  While generic WordPress training is great,  there are instances where you may have "inherited" a site from someone, and it has been highly customized.  

In that case, you'll need a tutor to help you navigate a special template, or certain custom post types or god - forbid, hard-coded information that a previous webmaster may have placed in the theme.  In those instances, you could spend 10 hours trying to figure out exactly what's going on, or you can spend less than 1-hour getting help and moving on to more important things.

A WordPress Tutor can even help you fix coding mistakes

A WordPress Tutor Can Give you insight into the future of WordPress as a platform and how it relates to your site.

WordPress is ever-changing and evolving.  Most likely your concern is to maintain your business or personal blog, not become an expert on all things WordPress.  Wordpress tutors and trainers live, eat, and breathe WordPress.  

WordPress is their business -  literally.  

A tutor stays on top of these developments and lets you know when a major update is happening, generally what changes to expect, and whether or not you need to update.  For instance, just recently a major WordPress e-commerce plugin had a security hole.  By having a WordPress guru in your back pocket, you could have gotten the heads up and gotten the update in time.  Your competitors may still be running the outdated version of the plugin.

WordPress Tutoring and Training can make you more valuable as an Employee...or Boss

WordPress Tutoring makes you more valuable as an Employee...or Boss

More and more businesses are using WordPress to run their business.  That means that adding content and making small changes to the website no longer demand a Web Developer.  That means as an employee you may be asked to update content, backup the site, or even help add new pages, sliders, etc...

You want to make sure that you're ready to make those changes without worrying about making mistakes.  That's where customized WP training comes into play.

As a Boss, you may not be the one updating the content, but you might need to know what is involved in updating a WordPress site.  If you are well versed in what WordPress can and can't do, you're in a better position to manage the content that is placed on the site.

If you need help with WordPress don't be afraid to get the help you need.  Your time is the most valuable commodity you have.  Don't waste it.
