WordPress.com and Fiverr Partner to Launch “WordPress.com Fundamentals” Course

Looking for a step-by-step video course on how to build a website? We’ve got you covered.

Getting your new business website ready for launch? Want a little hand-holding — a step-by-step tutorial on setting up a WordPress.com site from start to finish, that you can work on at your own pace and on your own time? “WordPress.com Fundamentals,” a comprehensive video course created with our friends over at Fiverr, walks you through all the fundamentals in 90 minutes.

The course covers the basics of setting up a business website, but anyone new to WordPress.com can benefit from lessons on how to create an account, set up a site, customize a theme, publish content, and share it on social media. It was developed by WordPress.com Happiness Engineers with years of experience guiding thousands of new WordPress.com customers in chat, email, forums, and concierge sessions, so you know you’re getting expert guidance from people who know every WordPress.com tip and trick.

The entire course is just $31, which includes unlimited access to all the course materials, quizzes, and downloadable resources. Take it all at once, or learn at the pace that works for you — the course is divided into bite-sized chapters that you can refer to as many times as you need.

Students are also eligible for a discount of 25% on WordPress.com plan upgrades! So if you’ve been hesitating to explore the advanced features in the Premium, Business, or eCommerce plans, the course gives you both a great introduction to the ease and power of WordPress.com and a lower-cost way to try them out.

To get started, head over to the course page on the Learn from Fiverr website. Click on the green “Buy Course” button, and follow the prompts to create an account and purchase the course. And until the end of September, get 30% off the course fee by entering coupon code learnwordpress at checkout.

And if you do take the class, let us know what you think. Fiverr will send out a survey to all students after completing the class, so be sure to fill it out. We want to know what works for you, what you’d like to see more of, and where we can improve.

    Surely this will be very useful to those with small business because this creates massive opportunities for them to market their businesses… But does WordPress accommodate e-commerce sites?

    Why would you charge someone money to learn how to use your product? Why would anyone pay for this video when there are hundreds of WordPress Tutorial videos on Youtube. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=wordpress+tutorial+for+beginners

      Hi, and thanks for your comment!

      > Why would anyone pay for this video when there are hundreds of WordPress Tutorial videos on Youtube.

      Excellent question! Absolutely, you can access not only hundreds (maybe even thousands) of WordPress tutorials on YouTube, but also many more thousands of detailed blog posts simply by typing in a search like, “how to do [insert function here] on WordPress” or “how to get started on WordPress” or variations thereof.

      We partnered with Fiverr to create and launch this video specifically for users new to WordPress.com, which as you know uses a modified version of the open source WordPress software. Many, if not most tutorials that you find using a Google search will walk users through setting up a self-hosted WordPress site, but very few offer specific onboarding and publishing instruction on how to do the same on the WordPress.COM platform. Our Happiness Engineers regularly field requests for a full how-to tutorial specific to WordPress.com, plus our friends over at Fiverr also frequently receive requests from their freelancers asking for WordPress tutorials, hence the collaboration and partnership.

    I have tried to connect to this course on offered by Majorie R. Asturias for WordPress through Fiverr. I paid for the course and received a receipt from Fiverr also a login name but I am unable to log in. I contacted /Fiverr help support and they said they had no record of my payment, I called my credit card company and they confirmed that Fiverr had been paid. I consider WordPress a reputable company and have an account with them. I have not used it because I had not had time to better understand how to use WordPress which is why I signed up for the course …. Now instead of learning more I am out the cost of the course and I know no more than I did before. I would appreciate Help with this matter …. Any ideas, solutions would be appreciated.
