Wordpress & SEO Masterclass
Is WordPress refusing to obey you? Not sure how to make your web pages pop? No idea what ‘search engine optimisation’ really is and how you’re supposed to use it? This workshop is ideal for you!
You might have a sparkly new website and a brain filled with top-quality content but if you don’t know how to use WordPress to make good-looking pages full of great SEO, it could go all to waste.
Our WordPress CMS and SEO Masterclass will give you the skills you need to create pages and posts on your website and teach you how to get that content working for you on Google.
Here at burningred we’ve designed, developed and maintained websites for many clients over the years and we know how important it is to understand how to use your website and how to optimise it so that people can find you.
The session will be run by Alex Mills (burningred’s very own creative director and co-founder of rock’nroll-meets-rust clothing company Rothfink Industries), Meg Hodson (content creator and social media mogul – Meg makes, posts and optimises digital content on the regular) and burningred‘s newest team member Heather Arnold (former editor of Cardiff’s Buzz Magazine, she used to run the magazine’s WordPress site and now helps Meg create SEO-loving content for our clients).
