Teaching method is much interesting. Learnt a lot of new things. Can't wait to lunch my e-commerce website!

  • Sunil

This is a good course for someone who is new to Wordpress, especially Wordpress.com. It gives a good overview of how you can set up your website on Wordpress.com.

I've given it one negative star (i.e., 4 stars instead of 5) for the audio -- it is too low. I had to keep the volume really high on my PC in order to hear her voice.

  • Carlos

I love how all the points covered went into detail, and how the course gave background knowledge about a lot of the features offered, this was definitely worth the buy, due in part but not limited to, the marketing and SEO tips.

  • wpcommaven

An excellent and thorough introduction to creating your WordPress.com website from the ground up, including things to think about and act on even before signing up. Will definitely recommend to new users looking to gain some insight as they start their website building journey. Thank you Marjorie, WordPress.com and Fiverr!

  • Labhlu

The total event was awesome. I loved it. I'll recommend to my friends to participate in that. I think, the course is only for beginners & not for advance label trainees. That's all. I'm glad to be a part of that, but not as per my expectations. Thank you very much.

  • So

I must say I am impressed to learn from fiverr.com. It is not the learning I learn it, the procedure of teaching methods which everyone must follow for instance patience, smile, step by step and last with your lovely speech with your smooth words can encourage many learners to learn from Fiverr.

It's great and the lady on the video is just adorable.

  • Muzmmil

Great Course About Website Building using WordPress. Everything explained very accurately and in simple clear way. As a Professional Photo Editor on Fiverr, I enjoy this course and learn how to build website from scratch to a fully functional site. With my Photo Editing and Retouching Skills, this skill add many benefits for future to understand clients needs while building sites..!!!

Very Thank full to the Instructor of this Course and Fiverr Learn Team to Give this opportunity of Learning valuable Courses on this platform. Thanks :)

  • Anna

Majorie is a great presenter and speaks with a lot of confidence. The most important conclusion I can take away from this course is that WordPress was built for SEO purposes. I may get the impression that Fiverr is an affiliate partner of WordPress. If so, then to me, it's the right choice. For me, it was a twisted experience seeing someone using WordPress.com rather then WordPress.org installations. I only use those for my projects, no exception. Majorie should be a bit less proud of the software because WordPress.com is easy, and it may offend all PHP backend programmers, plugin, theme, or WordPress core developers who do all the hard work.

  • 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.

  • Ahsanul

Very helpful for the beginners. But there is nothing new for the experts.

  • abosaudtech

Very fun and easy.

  • Bilal

Ah if you sell this course! Its not that much good what i am expecting to take an online course with fiverr.com, all the course content can easily be watched on youtube in a single video for free.

Wonderful course with resourceful tips and tricks..

  • harryferguso673

Information was very clear and easily implemented. Was able complete the course in two sittings without being stressed and overwhelmed.

  • 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.

  • Shubham

Great course with valuable information.This course is designed especially for Wordpress.com users but this can even help Wordpress.org users to some extent as many features are same in both the cases.

  • 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.

  • christinetin324

I found the presentation clear and precise. It was full of content delivered quickly and efficiently and I hope I can successfully launch a Blog.....if I can't it is not the course presenter's fault. Thanks for providing this course and I plan to use Fiverr in the future.

  • 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.

  • Diaconu

This course is great for absolute beginners. Even so, i've learned some great tips.
I recommend this course to everyone that is interested in WP.

  • Adiat

The course is good but I won't say this course is complete to build a PROFESSIONAL Wordpress website rather it seemed a course of overview of wordpress.com, wordpress, SEO and blogging. The website she used as example doesn't look like a professional wordpress website at all. She should have designed a professional website in the course.
