WordPress Guide

I am very excited today because I have just come across a WordPress guide that quite blew me away, it is so fantastic! It is called WordPress Classroom 2.o. I absolutely wanted to see what it is all about, because I love WordPress and building blogs and websites with it, I think it’s the coolest blogging (and website) platform out there. So I signed up and got hooked!

I remember what a hard time I had when I wanted to learn the “How to” of WordPress, and all the associated options with it. There is a lot to learn, and it is just so much easier if you have a good WordPress guide that shows you how to do it. And that’s exactly what WordPress Classroom 2.o does. A pretty well known guy (in the Internet Marketing world, anyway 😉 named Matthew Wolfe created it, and the best part is it is all VIDEOS!!! – I personally learn a lot better if I can follow a video rather than just writing! His WordPress Classroom 2.o is packed with clever videos doing the “show all” and “tell all” of WordPress. You will really be a pro after going through all his stuff!

Matthew is just such a nice guy, because he created these really cool instructional videos in his WordPress guide that teach you how to set up your own blogging business and now he is giving them away for free!! There are something like 15 videos that walk you through the whole thing step by step.

I only had to look at 2 of his free videos and already learned something really cool I had no idea about – it’s about hiding affiliate links (if you click on that, you will get to my “old” post about hiding affiliate links; that’s the hard way of doing it). Matthew has shown me something so simple in his tutorials, it’s crazy. No more stuffing around with .php files and FTP! — I won’t tell you what it is, that would somewhat spoil it for you 😉 .

If you have followed me for a while, you should know that I never recommend anything if I am not convinced it’s really good. After all, I have been burnt so many times, and I don’t want anybody else to go through what I did.

So, trust me,  if you need a WordPress guide and are really are serious about making money with WordPress blogs and websites, then head over to WordPress Classroom 2.0 and grab the free videos before Matthew decides to pull them down! 😮

    That sounds like a really good program for me. I’m new to wordpress and am not really sure how to implement plugins and stuff. Thanks for the tip – it’s good to get info from someone who has actually used the product!

    This is perfect for the newbies. I remember when I was starting out I had to learn most everything on my own. Beginners, take advantage of this great resource!

  3. I meant to say video sorry. I got the dummies book for basic trouble shooting. But the videos helped me a lot more.

  4. Mike says:

    That’s great to hear, me too will definitely try wordpress classroom 2.0. I’m a beginner when it comes to blogging with wordpress. Thanks for sharing it Petra, appreciate it very much and more power.

  5. Wow this sounds really great, and videos even? I know what I’m doing this weekend!

  6. Ste says:

    This sounds like it could be a good guide. Does it include template creation? Because that’s what I really need to learn about, and the wordpress loop. I just can’t get my head around it to be honest.

    • Petra Weiss says:

      So far I have not seen any video about creating a template – but that’s not really what WordPress is about. WordPress offers so many free (and paid) templates there should be some for everybodys needs. And what is the “WordPress loop”? I have never heard of that.

  7. Michael says:

    This is really helpful for beginners. I have seen some of his videos and already learned few things. The videos are easy to follow. The video of getting traffic and gaining credibility was very much needed. i have finished watching basics videos and will now start with the intermediate ones.

  8. Jane says:

    Thanks for the recommendation. I’m still in my babysteps with wordpress. I’ll definitely check out the free videos 🙂

  9. Chris says:

    hahahah it actually kinda sucks cause I had to learn wordpress by myself

    I wish I had something like this to speed things up

    • Jeremy says:

      Yeah, it definitely helps to have a thorough guide rather than trying to learn everything yourself. When the web makes information sharing so easy, there is no need to go through all the same beginner mistakes as everyone else. You might as well learn from people who have the experience.

  10. Jeremy says:

    I agree that this sounds perfect for anyone who wants to get serious about blogging. WordPress is by far the best blogging platform. So it is a good idea to learn all the ins and outs to get the most of it.

  11. Spode says:

    Thanks a lot Petra. I’m learning to work with WordPress these days and it will definitely help me a lot. I’m collecting more and more information from internet. Plz tell me if WordPress Classroom 2.o has great information. I will definitely buy it.

  12. nicky says:

    hey petra
    great looking site, very neat and informative..
    nice to look up genuine marketers..
    thanks for the support you left at my blog…
    dont know how you lot get the time to do everything
    that is needed to make money.. planning i guess..
    i shall return, keep up the good work…
    nicky recently posted…TIME TO GET SERIOUS ABOUT MAKING MONEYMy Profile

    • Petra Weiss says:

      Hmm, if you mean me with “you lot” then I have to tell you that I don’t have the time to do everything that is needed to make money, – that’s why there is now only a blog post every month or so, and my income only increases by minimal amounts 🙁 No matter how much you know about making money on the Internet, if you don’t have time to put into it, the income will stay on a Hobby level for quite a long time, too. That doesn’t phase me though, I think eventually I will reach higher levels if I continue to work little by little at it, in the small amount of time that I have. That’s the good thing about Internet Marketing – your little efforts can grow bigger over time, and whatever you do on the Net will stay there and work for you for years to come.

  13. zack says:

    If you search from google you’ll find there a lots of review about wordpress classroom. The wordpress classroom is a good course. At this particular time I just signup for free video. I believe I’ve know everything about wordpress blog since I’m using it almost 2 years but there must something special of the product since Petra recomend it to us.

    • Petra Weiss says:

      Zack, I have been “doing” WordPress for 2 years in my spare time here and there, and I am quite confident with it, but WP Classroom has got a few things already in the free videos that have helped me along, and there are more goodies in the paid version (which is only $9.95/month by the way!)

  14. WOW this is great to see another WordPress Fan. I started building websites manually with html in the old days. I just wish I had found WordPress earlier.
    Love your website Petra. You write very honestly and every post I have seen is very interesting. Thank you.

    I use WordPress for blogging. WordPress is easy to learn and inserting html or css codes is no hassle unlike other blog sites. I do hope I could learn a lot from this WordPress Classroom 2.0. Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Petra
    Free WordPress videos have got to be worth looking at.
    Thanks for the heads up – I’ll report back what I think of them.

    • Jeremy says:

      I’m sure it will help. There is always something new to learn. It’s one thing to know how to setup a blog and it’s another to know how to really optimize a blog.

  18. kobe says:

    The drag and drop navigation UI and the easy background setup are 2 new features that take WordPress to a new level of user friendliness and ease of use. The menus setup addition is the final word that WP is a lot more than just a blogging platform, and can be used to build most of the websites out there.
    Terrific post, I’ve been waiting for a comprehensive professional overview of new WP 3.0 features for some time now, and this was definitely a clear and interesting read.

  19. Now this is a great find. Thanks for sharing it with the community and us fellow bloggers!

  20. Bit Doze says:

  23. What I’m interested is that do the videos teach new tricks? I’ve also been blogging using WP for a few years now. There are a lot of things I don’t know yet, but the basics I have pretty much covered it. Something new and advanced would certainly be nice. Are there previews?

    • Petra Weiss says:

      I have been blogging using WordPress for 2 years and thought I knew a lot, but already in the free videos there were a few things that I found fantastic which I had no idea about. So for starters just get the free videos, and then decide whether they are useful or not.

  24. Jamie says:

    Very well written post. I didn’t think it was possible for me to learn anything new at my age and then I read this. Thank you for sharing it. I look forward to reading more of your post. Keep up the good work great job.

  39. jake says:

    yeah there is a lot to learn.. I want to start a blog but honestly I am scared to start learning everything..

    • Petra Weiss says:

      Jake, the more you learn the more you will understand, and the easier it will get. You will just have to try and not do everything that’s out there, as tempting as it is. It’s the death of every Affiliate Marketer. Concentrate on one or two things and stick with them. Like, I have decided to earn money from building niche websites. No PPC, or List building etc. One thing, and stick with it.

  40. Josh Ray says:

    I just got started in affiliate marketing and I’m trying to learn everything I can about it. Hiding affiliate links is difficult so any shortcut would be appreciated.

  51. Luis Posselt says:

    I am totally with you that WordPress is the best Blogging Platform out there…But I will have to say that for building other kind of Websites I do prefer Joomla…:)…Definitely these two platforms are great to learn and have them inside your wing… For me both are easy to learn and understand, but remember that anything new to anyone will be hard or at least not easy and that does not matter if you are a Phd or you have a Master degree…Anyway, I will check out those videos and see what else I can learn from WP….Thanks for the post Petra….

    I have a blog on blogspot right now, but have been mulling over becoming a ‘grown-up’ in the blogging world and moving to Word Press. I am glad I came upon this post, Word Press is so very intimidating.

  54. Definitely, I share your enthusiasm on WordPress and the overwhelming but exciting learning curve to absorb and apply all the “how-to’s” for building and developing successful blogs.

    Videos are the best way to learn for most people as it offers live instructions as if you had the internet teacher besides you for real giving you the right guidance.

    Have been using WP platform for two years and I plan to stick with it and get more educated with new resources like the one you present here.

  60. Is it really for free? No catches or spyware of such like? I use wordpress all the time and this looks like it would be really great for me. Going to have a look and then let you have some feedback on the videos.

  61. Iam very impressed by seeing this blog posting.Word press is WordPress is a kind of blogging platform which develops websites. Classroom 2.o is packed with clever videos doing the “show all” and “tell all” of WordPress.

  62. Thanks for the post Petra, video training is definitely a lot easier and makes the most of technology. I think WordPress and Joomla are two amazing platforms to build sites in, but WordPress wins hands down for blogging-based sites.

    I so much like WordPress because of a lot of reasons. But each time it updates, which is too frequent, I find out that it’s not compatible with some of the third-party plugins I’ve been using. Besides that, WP is literally great! I’ll give the WordPress Classroom 2.0 a try.
