Here’s the thing to note about WP101. As you watch most screencast tutorials, what you’ll quickly realize is that the person recording them is just clicking on every screen and checkbox, trying to show you everything that’s in their head. That’s because they’re not teachers. They’re not educators. They’re just expert users of the software. The difference at WP101 is that the entire team behind it are focused on education. They’re focused on making sure that you can learn. And to that end, the videos have a completely different feel… one that I think you’re going to appreciate.
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 WordPress training resource!
Whether you’re making your first website or explaining to someone the difference between WordPress posts and pages for the thousandth time, WP101 helps solve the mysteries of the internet’s most popular content management system. As an avid WordPress follower and developer, I appreciate the time WP101 courses can save me and my clients. Kudos to the WP101 team for maintaining such an awesome repository of resources for the WP community!
As a freelance WordPress developer, I have to teach my clients how to use WordPress. The training bit isn’t my forte and I don’t enjoy it, but it comes with the territory. Enter WP101. For me, WP101 is a double-whammy of goodness. It both saves me time and helps my clients understand WordPress. Thank you, Shawn. Your WordPress training videos allow me to do what I do best — developing WordPress sites — because I can leave my clients in safe hands with you to learn about WordPress.
I’ve spent years looking for a WordPress training site that actually lives up to its promise of being for new WordPress users. WordPress beginners want to learn 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.

WP101’s popular series of WordPress video tutorials equips beginners, professionals, and support teams with the tools they need to help themselves or their clients create, edit, and manage WordPress sites with confidence. Since its founding in 2008, the tutorial company has served more than 2 million customers while continually developing its software in stride with the WordPress core.
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.

I just wanted you to know how much I love WP101. Your knowledge of WordPress, and how to get the most from it, is impressive. More impressive is the clear way you communicate exactly how to get done what needs to get done. No fluff or filler, just the exact how-to-do-it process that works for beginners and advanced users as well. After 13 years online I can truly say that WP101 is one of the best products I have ever purchased.
When I first started to learn WordPress, I initially browsed video sites like YouTube, but felt that the instructions weren’t very clear and that I had to do a lot of research to find exactly what I wanted. The material I needed was very scattered and disorganized. I searched Google and came across WP101. I was pleased to find that the WordPress tutorials were professional with clear instructions, high quality resolution, and everything in one place. I also love the fact that there is a plugin available to integrate into client’s websites. I would have no hesitation in recommending WP101 as this is a fantastic training resource!
WP101 helped me — the girl who knows more about plants and trees than computers — build a great website with virtually no experience. The WP101 videos are very informative and helpful. The title options make it easy to find the info you are looking for quickly. The videos are not too long and are very to the point. There are easy examples to follow along with and even a place to ask questions. I highly recommend signing up for WP101. It will definitely help you navigate the WordPress world and help you use so many more of the great features. Thanks, WP101!
Thank you SO much! I have just inherited the job of developing and maintaining our local school website as a volunteer. I was going around in circles, frustrated with this “user friendly” tool called WordPress. I signed up for your courses, and they are fabulous! Just the right pace, in bite-sized chunks, and instant access which is WONDERFUL. I can go at my own pace; it’s all there for me. I’m only about half a dozen courses in so far, and I’ve already learned SO much! Very, very grateful! You are absolutely helping me not only NOT look a complete twit, but actually look like the semi-professional web-developer I am! Until I make it through all your courses, I think I’m absolutely going to be able to fake this! So thank you! 🙂

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!”

WP101 has been an extremely useful tool for our company and our customers. We believe having the knowledge to build and design your website to conform to your vision is a powerful and beautiful thing. I don’t think there is a better system at this price to get a complete walkthrough for WordPress on the market right now!
WordPress 101 is great for anyone who needs access to information about WordPress that they wouldn’t have otherwise. Shawn and his WP101 program will have an inspiring business owner learning how to build a interactive and valuable website which is sometimes one of the most important asset to a company since we are now in the information age!
WP101 isn’t ‘just another tutorial site.’ It’s far more than that. Every effort has gone into each frame of video to ensure that you feel part of what you’re learning, and that you actually learn! For less than a couple cups of coffee, you may become the next WordPress expert. Whether you simply want to learn the basics, or get down to the nitty gritty, creator Shawn Hesketh has developed one of the most invaluable WordPress resources around.
As a web designer, you only have to sit down with a WordPress newbie once to realize that making the WP101 tutorial video series available to clients is a very worthwhile investment!
Though I’ve been a writer (for profit) for a long time this is my first venture into blogging. After studying only the first five WordPress tutorials I knew that the money I spent for your tutorials is well worth it. Using WordPress without the tutorials is like driving a V8 on one cylinder.

I’m a 66 year-old, and doing anything with the computer besides email sends me into complete panic. I’ve created a blog for my website and was totally confused about WordPress until I watched your tutorials. Thank you for making it easier!

When I initially landed on your site, I thought to myself, “Why pay to learn WordPress when there are tons of videos on YouTube?” I then proceeded to watch one of your videos. Now, I understand. Your videos are levels above the other WordPress instructional videos out there. Good stuff.

I really like your WooCommerce tutorial videos. I wish I had worked through them before I started my site. I just muddled through WooCommerce, hoping I was doing it right. Your videos have helped me clarify some mysteries. I will recommend them to others, because they are very clear and succinct.

Dude. Your site is so streamlined and your videos are so helpful that I feel like it was the best money I’ve spent in a while to sign up as a member. I’m working on building my father’s company’s website using WordPress, and most of the things that you have posted about have helped me immensely.

WP101.com is the best tutorial site I’ve signed up with. I am really impressed with the level of service and prompt response time, even though the site is run by just one guy. I am from Sri Lanka and I deal with many online companies in the US and UK. But I’ve never received such a prompt and fast response. Thank you, Shawn!

When I looked at the WordPress videos offered here, it took me all of 30 seconds to realize what a value this is going to be for my WordPress clients. I’ve been creating video tutorials for years, and I know how much work goes into creating a tutorial course. Thank goodness Shawn has created these, so I don’t have to!

WordPress 101 is singularly the most hands-on, work-with-what-you-are and who you are tutorial website I have ever seen. I have never benefitted from any DIY site until WP101. Your tutorials are not only helpful, they are informative, functional, hands-on and never a boring drone. You speak our language: the language of Novice. And then you make us Competent. And eventually, I will be Advanced. You’ve done a great service to people who are open to learning new things, no matter what our age. Thank you so much for the outstanding customer service.
