00:38 David Blackmon: Today on episode 834, i want to build websites for clients on WordPress, where do i get started? Tim, i’m gonna let you kick this episode off, and i’m gonna dive in afterwards. Where should, i get started if i’m a new guy starting to learn, how to use WordPress?
00:56 Tim Strifler: Yeah. So, i think it depends on. So, i want to build websites for clients on WordPress, where should I start? Now, if you’re someone who has dabbled and is able to build websites, then you’re off to a great start. So it depends on whether or not you’re at the stage where you’re ready to get clients, or you’re still learning. So if you’re still learning, we’ve done some episodes lately you know, that you can go to YouTube, you can go to mine and David’s WordPress Beginner course on wpgears.com. And we go through all the foundational things to help you build websites. Even if you built a few but you have a lot of learning gaps, and a lot of things that you’re not sure. If you did the right way and you kind of want to learn the best practice steps? Well then, that will teach you how. But if you’re someone who’s like you know, what i can build websites, i’m confident in it, now i just need to figure out how to get clients and actually create a business. So if that’s the case? Well, we actually also have a course called Divi Business Expert, which is a business course centered around teaching you how to build a business building websites for clients. And we teach you how to get clients, how to do contracts and how to do invoicing. And uh all the kind of businessy type of things. How to create recurring revenue, how to grow your business from a profit standpoint. So all of those types of things that you’re going to need to know to actually grow a long-term and sustainable business around building websites for clients. Um yeah, go for it.
02:34 David Blackmon: Awesome. Well, I mean, i you know i think if you are at a phase where you’re going to be building websites for clients and stuff, there’s some knowledge that you’re gonna need to have. Site architecture is really important, what i didn’t understand when i started building websites for clients and stuff. Which was pretty big. When i look back on it is understanding you know, how things beyond building websites work. So how do websites get found, how do search engines work you know, how does site architecture play into that and because at the end of the day, you it’s not just about getting a pretty website online. It’s about making. Sure that you know that the people that come to their website are interested in what that business is offering and stuff. So there are things that you need to know. Um so my opinion is if you’re going to build websites for clients and stuff that’s something that’s pretty serious. And you know, you should know what you’re doing. So educate yourself. Whether that’s you know, taking courses or um you know doing you know learning from practical experience on your own website and stuff, making sure that you can help the clients the best that you can and stuff. And then outside of that you know, it’s pretty open and flexible which direction you go. So I think if you’re gonna start building websites for clients, you need to be at a certain stage of uh knowledge and you should educate yourself . If you’re not and that would be like taking courses or something and you know, Tim and i have a bevy of courses from beginners to how to build a six-figure business with WordPress. So check them out wpgears.com if you have any questions would be glad to answer them and stuff. Tomorrow we’ve got another great topic, is WordPress difficult to learn if you’re not a tech person. Until tomorrow, we’ll see you then.
