Course Description

Build your online shop using a popular WordPress e-commerce solution.

I know from personal experience that there is nothing more exciting than building something out of an obscure idea.

Selling online is quickly becoming a giant revenue producing industry that never seems to reach its capacity.

This is encouraging news for anyone who has something to sell. The start up costs are minimal and your overhead (think rent, employees, utilities) are non-existent.

This means that your dream of owning a slice of the online shopping pie is just a few clicks away.

One of the most common e-commerce solutions out there for WordPress is WooCommerce.

This course will walk you through how to set up individual products using shipping methods as well as downloadable product sales like ebooks. Of course, there is tons of info on things like how to set up shipping, product variables, taxes, and coupons.

In just 14 short videos you'll have enough knowledge on how to use the WooCommerce plugin to launch your shop.

What you'll need:

  1. WordPress
  2. Your site (URL & Hosting)
  3. WooCommerce Plugin
