Brian’s unique approach…
Brian’s spent 10 years working as a web developer with leading software companies, before working in academia for 6 years as a digital marketing / technology lecturer.
Central to Brian’s approach to teaching, is the well-known, but often forgotten fact, that the only way to learn new technology is to roll up your sleeves and gain experience using it!
“I see and I forget, I hear and I remember, I do and I understand” – Confucius.
That’s why Brian’s clients each get a practice WordPress site, along with free access to the leading themes and plugins – so they can get hands-on experience implementing the strategies and using the software tools used by leading digital marketers.
The carefully-crafted lessons here on wpapplied.com will take you on a rapid learning journey through the very heart of WordPress and the very latest digital marketing tools and strategies.
Kind words from leading WordPress experts
What sets WP Applied apart from other WordPress courses is the fact that each member gets their hands dirty with the real tools of the trade: web hosting, WordPress, themes, plugins and all the other services real online business owners use on a daily basis. There’s a lot of bullshitters out there selling “get rich on the Internet” training. WP Applied is teaching real skills that will help people for many years.
