WP Academy programs are complete A-Z, beginner to advanced courses on the technology of web marketing, using the world’s favorite small-business website development platform, WordPress. Our courses are for small business owners, self-employed professionals, social media marketers, virtual assistants, traditional (HTML-based) webmasters… anyone who wants to learn how to create professional WordPress websites that sell.
Quite simply, we have been teaching these courses for 3 years to hundreds of satisfied customers, and nobody does this better than we do. We offer a complete package of Training + Support + Software that is expressly designed to get you everything you need to professionally design WordPress websites for yourself or your clients.

All of our programs include access to the WP EncyclopediaBeta, currently the largest single reference source for WordPress web design and web-marketing technology on the web — and also the only one with a comprehensive, searchable index of WordPress and web marketing topics.

“When I began Marc’s class (WordPress Academy 101), I had the rough beginnings of a website. It looked homemade and crude. It took me lots of time and effort to get that far. In the class, I was able to understand the entire process of creating a website that works and looks great as well. In addition, the resources available to students and the assistance provided go above and beyond expectations. Marc is not only a good teacher but very encouraging as well! If you want help with the process of building a website you can maintain and customize, this class teaches it all!” — Cindi Russell (www.BeyondtheCinderellaStory.com)
“As soon as I have time, I will leave you a raving review! I thoroughly enjoyed your class!” — Sean Makulowich (www.dfi-records.com)
“I loved the classes. Although they were very challenging and technical, they were also user friendly for those of us that are new to web design. Because of Marcs instruction and support, I am confident that I can create websites to meet any need. And when I get stuck, there are always the recordings to fall back on. Thank you Marc for sharing your knowledge and expertise” — Cindy Z. (www.beholdasite.com)
“I thought that the class was excellent – it covered a wide variety of topics and Marc is extremely knowledgeable about WordPress. Plus, he genuinely cares about his students and goes above and beyond to assist them. I would highly recommend the class.” — Joan M. Silverio (www.YourInternetMarketingStrategist.com)
“I wanted to thank you for your webinar and your help and assistance during the course. I find it quite amazing I now have a website since just a couple months ago I didn’t have any idea how I was going to accomplish that. Especially since I wanted to do it myself, not hire someone to take it over.” –Leigh Pobst (www.reflectionshealingstudio.com)
“Marc is such a delight to work with. With his expertise and instruction, I now have a beautiful and adaptable website for my business “In The Garden, Design, Care & Workshops.” Quite amazing – workable pages up within 2 weeks; looking good in 6 weeks! After many years of procrastination…. I’m enjoying learning “how to” and so excited to finally say “YES, I have a website – www.inthegardendesign.us.”” — Charlotte Kidd
“I can’t tell you how grateful I am to have had the opportunity to work with you on Sam’s site. He is so happy with it and full of expansive ideas. And this was my real goal, so thanks. You have a special place in my heart and prayers.” – Sister Michaela, www.samkeen.com.
