Is WordPress easy to use?
Have you ever edited any photo of yours or your family using photoshop?
If yes then WordPress is just like photoshop, the drag and drop website editing tool.
However, you still need some training and some practice to build a website efficiently.
If you choose to build your website with WordPress you don’t need to worry about the coding and technical stuff, because WP does all the coding work for you.
You just need to learn about the features and functionalities of WordPress so that, you can build your site by using the top features of WordPress.

You can pick the best theme for your site under the theme section of WP and use it for your project.

How much time I have to spend in learning WordPress?
A few days before, I was teaching WP to one of the friends of my friend who is a non-techie . And he learned the few and important basics of WP in just one day, means in just one hour.
What I taught him in one hour-
- What are WP themes and how to change themes?
- Theme customization, Changing the site identity, changing the header and footer color and text,
- how to create page and post?
- Uploading files to media library.
- Creating categories and menus.
40% of the total things which I taught him had bounced from his mind. But he learned 60% and that’s enough for the first day.
I think if you start learning WP today and practise 2 hours everyday, 15 days are enough to master the basics of WP and some advanced also.
As more you will practice as more you will acquire.
But in a few days also, you can learn WordPress well.
Do you know? Practise makes men perfect, so more practice with WordPress is important to master it.
Can I build what I want using WordPress without paying a web developer?
Yes you can.
Even high converting landing pages, fully attractive and dynamic websites.
High converting sales funnels, community, forums, subscription based websites.
E-commerce websites and online store, educational sites, blogs, etc.
Is WordPress free?
The license under which the WordPress software is released is the GPLv2 (or later).
GPL stands for General Public License. Which means WordPress is free to use for anyone for any purpose.
Even anyone can make changes to the software and can modify it according to his/her needs and redistribute it.
So, WP is free to use but, you will need to spend some money in buying a Domain name, and a Web hosting.
How to set up a WordPress site?
You need three things to set up a WP site and make it available to world.
- Website Domain
- Website Hositng
Bluehost is the best and affordable web hosting to start your WP site.
It’s easy to set up a website with Bluehost because they provide an attractive and user-friendly control panel so that you can host your website easily.
