A decent WordPress course that is focused on beginners but is a good review for more experienced users as well.

  • wasishah2017

Excellent Loved the course. great opportunity to learn new skills

  • Lucian-Vlăduț

It was kinda slow-paced and more oriented towards clients instead of freelancers, but had useful information

  • Cyber

Hello Learners! To be honest this course doesn't have value for money. They have covered very basic things in this course. I have been developing WordPress websites using WordPress.com and mostly Shared Web Hosting from past 6 years. Just wanted to check it out what Fiverr is selling in this course. There are alot more better courses on WordPress platform on LinkedIn Learning (Formerly Lynda.com) that too in a very cheap subscription. I hope fiverr will look into this and will make something that will cover more details, in depth knowledge and value for money.

  • Shahed

Very Good, I've learn many things. Thank You!

  • kili1994

The instructor is very professional and the course is carefully crafted. The topic was very good and informative for new users like me . Thank you very much. i enjoyed the course as much as u did when u created it.

  • audreynatividad

This online course on building my WP site was probably the best thing I've done in a long time. Taking this course is going to save me alot of time, save me alot of money, and make me alot of money! Thank you WordPress and Fiverr!

  • Elias N.

I felt the content was great, but I found the periodic Fiverr Learn courses and Fiverr product/service plugs between the videos to be irritating and distracting. I'm likely in the minority here, but when I've purchased a learning product or paid to learn something new, I don't want to be sold something else (for me it cheapens presentation of the content I'm learning). I would have much rather had all the Fiverr product plugs be aggregated to a single page after the conclusion video. Also, I'm certain you can find all of the information in these videos for free elsewhere online. Aside from the periodic product plugs - the single major annoyance for me, I found the videos to be well produced with useful beginner information.

  • umerkhawer

This course is more focused on Audience and Marketing than the Actual Details of Wordpress. Contents of this course are fairly basic and not in-depth. If you have a good understanding of how internet works you can pretty much figure this stuff out by yourself. There are few tips that you can take from this course but they are more for SEO then for Wordpress.

  • Zain

Apart from technical details of using wordpress, one of the best things I liked were the non-tech details shared; including planning for the site, its purpose, content strategy, sales funnel, seo etc even security.
For technical details of using wp, it does touch on most imp stuff but don't expect to have a site, being taken as a case study, that'll be build by the end of the course.
Lastly, nice and compact, great job instructor Marjorie Asturias and fiverr team.

  • Azan

LOVED IT! It is totally worth the investment of time and money. Now I am a WordPress expert. According to my experience, " Building a foundation " was the best part of this course. Thank you, Miss Marjorie Asturias, for your contribution.
cheers,
Happy Seller

  • catwriter

Very useful for beginners, and even those who are already using WordPress can learn something.

  • Dipen

At first, I thought creating a website is more difficult.

But after seeing this tutorial video, I think it's very easy. The mentor is really good at it and very specific on the topic. Her speech is very clear to understand.

If anyone wants know or learn about build a website by WordPress. I think this tutorial is the best for everyone.

  • Muhammad Samee

It can go into more depth (for those who know a little bit of coding like HTML, CSS, etc.) and increase the length of course. But overall, good kickstart course and good teacher.
