WordPress 101: Start Building Your Own Website Now

When: 9:30am
Where: 8000 Walton Parkway, Suite 200 - New Albany, Ohio


Part of our TIGER Workshops series:

WordPress powers 25% of all websites on the internet. Maybe you’ve been using other online website builders and looking to take the next step, or maybe you’ve never created a website at all.

If you’ve ever considered WordPress but thought it was too intimidating, Darin Young will show you how to get started. Darin will go over installation, navigating the interface, installing essential plugins, and creating your first page.

This workshop will be geared toward the WordPress beginner, so don’t be afraid if you have no WordPress experience at all.

He helps entrepreneurs and small businesses elevate their presence online through custom WordPress sites, setup and integration of online marketing tools such as email lists, analytics, and CRMs, along with videos and podcast production to further enhance their online brand. He also produces the Creative Pursuit podcast, encouraging others to pursue their own creative passion.

Darin has a background in radio, video production, and web design. He has worked with a number of local startup companies and organizations, including Rev1 Ventures, Innovate New Albany, Columbus Startup Weekend, Startup Grind, Clarivoy, and Ardina.
