Deal of the week: Learn to use WordPress in 1 hour.

thumbnailWordPress is a Web phenomenon. It powers a gazillion blogs and almost as many websites. As a technology, it's unique in that the learning curve isn't too steep, but there is a vast amount to learn and understand.

What that means is that web designers need to understand WordPress, and almost as importantly, they need to be able to explain it to their clients.

The best way to get ahead in this game, is to find the right teacher. That's why we're delighted that our sister-site,, has arranged this tremendous discount on a set of video tutorials that will get you up to speed on WordPress in just 1 hour!

Whether you're turning down freelance work because the clients always ask for WordPress, or if you're looking to move into CMS-backed web design, perhaps you're even thinking of starting your own blog; the WP101 video tutorial series will teach you everything you need to know in the time it takes to watch your favourite TV show.

This 28-part series has helped 15,000 people master the fundamentals of WordPress. Learn at your own speed by playing and pausing whereever you need to, you can even rewatch videos to nail the trickier concepts. Displayed on an HTML5 video player you can watch the videos anywhere; at your desk, or even on your commute. There's even an exclusive members-only forum, so if you hit on something that just isn't sticking in your head, you can get help.

The price you pay includes free updates, so unlike many of the video series out there, when WordPress is updated—which happens a lot—key videos will be updated too.

"WP101 is a hugely valuable educational tool for our users. Shawn is an absolute pleasure to work with and constantly going beyond the call of duty!" — Mark Forrester, Co-Founder of WooThemes

"The WP101 videos have become a key part of our support for new users especially. There is never a day that goes by I do not send one or more customers right to the videos." — Grant Griffiths, Co-Founder of Headway Themes

"In terms of presentation, WP101 is by far the best site for impeccable WordPress video training. The quality of these videos is really top notch, and Shawn Hesketh, the author, has really created something of high quality here. This is a highly recommended training resource!" — Jean Galea, Founder of WP Mayor

"In my quest for quality 'how to' videos, I stumbled upon WP101 and couldn't be happier. As a former teacher, I can attest these videos are spot on in their timing, scope and sequencing. Broken down into manageable units, the content is expertly delivered and simple to digest. I plan to point my WordPress clients to this site." — Melissa Bruneau, Graphic & Web Designer

"Shawn's video tutorial style is exemplary. Unlike some other WordPress video tutorial makers I know, Shawn does not shoot from the hip. His presentations are polished and precise. When you think about the time and care taken to make these tutorials, the decision to pay a few dollars doesn't get much easier than this!" — Mark McLaren, Online Marketing Consultant

"I've spent years looking for a site that actually lives up to its promise of being for new WordPress users. New WordPress users want to know how to create posts and pages, upload media, and what the difference is between categories and tags. WP101 is the only site I've ever found that addresses those requirements." — Chris Howard, three4one design

The regular price of this video series is $79, but for a limited time you can get lifetime membership for just $19, that's an incredible 76% discount!
