WordPress is one of the best content management systems around. Not only does it give you oodles of control on your own domain, complete with customizable theming and plugins – but it is one of the simplest ones to use out there. It’s a tool that has helped entrepreneurs, bloggers, and businesses create over 70 million websites. And you can build and create an online presence in no time flat with it.
That said, while it is easy to put together a WordPress site getting users to come to it is a whole other ball game. That’s why having a few “insider secrets” in your bag of tricks would be a very wise move. While WordPress doesn’t involve coding a site from scratch – that’s the beauty of it – you do still need to know where to start.
As we head into South by Southwest this week, there is an aura of “startup fever” that is present not just in Austin – but everywhere you look. But let’s face facts: most startups fail, even if they launch to much fanfare. With that in mind, you’re looking to make your very own startup a success. You know the odds are stacked against you. So how do you put yourself in a postion to have a greater chance of success?
By taking advantage of the latest Cult of Mac Deal, which lets you join The Lean Startup Movement at a fraction of the regular price, that’s how.
**Update** The iOS Foundations Course bundle is expiring tonight. This is an excellent iOS app development course that will teach you the building blocks for C Programming and Objective-C. There are other courses out there, but these are built with beginners in mind.
Mobile is the future of technology and apps are the driving force of the mobile economy. Those who can build and design apps will be the most sought after talent. Anyone can come up with an idea for an app; it’s the getting it built that’s the tough part. So, if you’ve ever had a killer idea for an iPhone app, then the iOS Foundations bundle could be your chance to learn the one-two punch of iOS app programing from one of the best, Mark Lassoff.
After getting feedback from our customers, we found that the most effective way for a beginner to learn how to build iOS apps is to offer a combo of 2 courses: C Programming: iOS Development Starts Here!and the Objective C for Beginners. And, we’re including both courses for the price of one – just $79.
Steve Jobs held the belief that great design and user experience provide a significant competitive advantage. Apple’s products reflect this mantra and I think we’d all agree – it’s working. We’ve recently brought you some amazing instructional courses on how to build your dream startup ideas. Much of what those courses teach are the core mechanics or the “back-end” of projects.
Our newest deal is an instructional video course that focuses on the art of moving from the idea stage through the various steps of designing the user experience. But it doesn’t stop there, it goes on to provide you with specific actions to follow at the end of each stage. No creative skills needed, and no design tools required. Just a pen and paper or a whiteboard and markers, and you’re all set to go. Sometimes you don’t know what you don’t know and this course put that on display for me personally.
