WordPress is an excellent publishing platform for blogs and websites and in the last few years it has really sky-rocketed in popularity!
You know that feeling when you finally set something into action that you’ve wanted to do for a long time. A kind of elation. Well that’s how I’m feeling.
I’m excited to finally be launching Website Mastery. Our brand new online training program, starting on 9th May.
For the first time I will be revealing all of my website secrets and sharing all the good stuff that will help you master your own business website.
Having a blog on your website is an excellent way to communicate with clients, attract targeted traffic to your website and establish yourself as an industry expert.
But many people who are just starting out with blogging struggle to come up with ideas on what to write about! It’s a common problem, but don’t let it put you off! [Read more...]
An up to date website is a vital tool for any business. It’s one of the most effective ways to give your customers and prospects the information they need to buy from you. But a website is only going to work for you if it’s kept up to date and free of errors.
It’s so common for many small business owners to spend a fortune on building a website that’s perfect at the time of launching, but they soon discover that making simple changes to their content later on is not easy – nor is it cheap.

Once they’ve added the content they can publish it instantly for the entire world to view.
