WPTrainMe – The Easiest And Most Profitable Way To Teach Clients How To Use WordPress

Don’t Just Teach Clients WordPress … Help Them Get Results!

WordPress ServicesDo you build WordPress websites for businesses, or sell any other WordPress-related services?

If so, do you also provide your clients with WordPress training?

If you do, consider what would happen if you asked your clients the following question at the start of your training session:

I’ve just built you a website using a powerful application called WordPress. Now I’m going to train you how to use your new WordPress site. Do you want me to teach you:

a) How to use WordPress to create a new page and add some content to it, or

b) How to use WordPress to automatically drive more targeted visitors to your site, get better search engine rankings, get more visibility online for your business on social media sites, generate more leads, more sales, more opt-in subscribers, increase your conversion rates and make your business more profitable … in addition to basic stuff like how to create a page and add some content to it?

Which of the above options do you think your clients would choose? If you were your own client, which of the above methods would you rather be shown after getting your website built?

Which of the above options do you think would increase the value of your WordPress services and allow you to charge clients more?

In this post we look at the training methods most website service providers use to teach their clients about using WordPress and why these are mostly ineffective. We will then show you why the WordPress system we spent over 3 years developing is effective, and why this system is the easiest way to train clients how to use WordPress.

How Do You Teach Your Clients WordPress?

Consider the screenshot below, which shows some of the typical responses given by a number of WordPress service providers to an online discussion by a group of WordPress experts on LinkedIn which asked them “How Do You Train Your WordPress Clients?” …

How To Train WordPress Users

The above responses (and our own research and experience) indicate that many website service providers choose the following methods to teach their clients how to use WordPress:

  • Providing one-on-one training (either on site or online, e.g. skype, phone, etc …) with an average duration of 1-2 hours,
  • Providing clients with PDF guides and/or videos.

How Effective Is Your WordPress Training Method?

Do you use any of the above methods to train your clients?

If so, how effective are they? Do they empower your clients to get the results they want to achieve with their WordPress sites that we discussed earlier?

Consider this …

Why do so many women (and increasingly men also) spend money on beauty products? It’s not because of the “active ingredients” used in the cosmetics, but because women (and men) want to look younger and more attractive. In other words, clients who buy cosmetic products don’t care about how their lotions and potions work as much as they care about the results that these products are supposed to deliver.

In a similar way, clients want websites because they want to experience better results in their business.

So …

Does the WordPress training method you are currently using show clients how to grow their business more profitably using WordPress?

Many WordPress training methods are ineffectiveIn our experience, one hour ‘one-on-one’ training sessions and PDFs or videos that only teach clients the basic mechanics of using WordPress can only take a client so far. They don’t really empower businesses to grow online and achieve sustainable results.

After using these same methods to train our own clients, we noticed that clients would typically leave the initial training session smiling and happy, but when we followed up with them around 90 days afterwards, the same client that was handed the keys to this amazing vehicle – a website built with WordPress, would then report that not much was happening with their site. Their efforts to grow their business online would often simply come to a halt.

At first, we believed our clients when they said they were just “too busy” to do the things we showed them during their ‘one-on-one’ training session.

Gradually, however, we came to understand that the reason why our clients just “stopped” was not because they were “too busy” as they said … it was because when it comes to getting results online, there’s so much more to learn than what was being covered in their training session and the PDFs and videos, that, without an effective step-by-step system to follow and regular guidance or mentoring, clients would simply end up feeling completely overwhelmed and confused about what to do next.

Learning WordPress can be a challengeThe reason why many business owners often come to a complete standstill after being handed “the keys” to their new WordPress site, is because they are not being truly empowered to grow their business and achieve the results they would like to experience. They are not being taught how to actually “drive” their online vehicle to any successful destination, or given an effective road map to follow; they are only being shown a few “buttons to press” in their vehicle’s dashboard that get some lights blinking, but makes nothing actually move forward.

The reality is, without a carefully constructed and effective step-by-step training system, there is just simply too much information for clients to learn and “too many dots” for them to connect in order to achieve the results they want.

Creating An Effective Step-By-Step WordPress Training System Is Not Easy

Creating an effective step-by-step WordPress training system is not an easy task by any means. It requires spending an inordinate and exhaustive amount of time planning, researching, documenting, troubleshooting and testing every single step of the process to make sure that users can easily follow every step without getting lost, confused or overwhelmed …

Creating An Effective Training System Is Exhausting

If you are busy building web sites for clients (or looking for new clients to service), how do you find the time to create a truly effective training system?

A one or two-hour training session can’t even begin to help someone connect all of the dots. It may be a practical way to sign off on a new website and leave the client feeling good about your services, but if the content of your WordPress training is not an organized system that can effectively help your clients get the results they want, then simply throwing information at them is only going to overwhelm and confuse your clients further. They are either going to come to a complete standstill, or they are going to look for easier solutions elsewhere.

Because WordPress is constantly changing, PDFs and videos can be difficult to keep training content up-to-date.

Using distributable training resources like PDFs also requires having an excellent document management system to keep track of which changes have been made in which document version, and which version has been distributed to which user.

Additionally, one of the biggest challenges of training clients to use WordPress, is that most website developers are not a “product of their product”.

In other words, they haven’t learned to use WordPress the same way that they are trying to teach it to others.

Most people who build WordPress sites for others are often self-taught WordPress users who have acquired technical knowledge and skills from many different sources and online resources.

This makes evaluating the effectiveness of a training method aimed at helping non-technical users get results a difficult task.

Now … at this point you may be thinking “Hang on! It’s not my job to teach clients how to get results online! My job is only to build them a website and then show them how to use it! Whether their business ultimately succeeds or fails is not my concern!”

Okay, fair enough, but here’s the point …

WordPress can deliver your clients the results they want … if they have a training system that shows them how!

Train Your Clients To Use WordPress With WPTrainMeWith an expertly configured WordPress site, the right training system and a little personal assistance from their web service provider to make sure that everything is going well, your clients can experience a steady growth in visitors, better search engine rankings, more visibility online on social media sites, more leads, more sales, more subscribers, increased conversion rates, and so on … without going somewhere else to find the answers they need!

A website built with WordPress can deliver phenomenal results for any business. The question is … are you teaching your clients how to achieve phenomenal results using WordPress?

Or are you just giving clients the same old ‘quick start’ training that will probably bring them to an eventual standstill?

After trying all of the above methods (i.e. one-on-one training, videos, PDFs, etc.) and experiencing all of the challenges and issues described thus far, we decided to build something different.

Would you like to know about a better and easier way to train clients that can FREE up your time so you can focus on growing your web services business while also helping you grow your clients business?

If so, let me share with you the easiest way to teach your clients how to use WordPress and help them get the results they expect from their new website.

Introducing … WPTrainMe!

- Stefan Wendt, Internet Marketing Success Group

Train Clients To Use WordPress The Easy Way With The WPTrainMe Plugin

If the focus of your business is building WordPress sites or providing other WordPress-related services to clients like web design or web development, then ask yourself the following questions:

  • Would you rather spend your valuable time finding and servicing new clients and growing your business, or training and supporting existing clients?
  • What if you could do both (i.e. find new clients and train existing clients) at the same time, by being smart about the way you train your clients to use WordPress?

  • What if your clients could continue to be trained to use WordPress in their own time, while you invest your time into looking for new clients to service?
  • What if the above could be turned into a simple "rinse and repeat" system where your clients are getting the best WordPress training possible (and loving you for it!), and you are finding and servicing new clients and adding massive value to both your and your clients' businesses?

Now … you probably have your own method for teaching clients to use WordPress, so let me ask you this …

  • If you found a smarter and more effective way to train your clients than the method you are currently using to teach clients WordPress, and ...
  • This training system saved you more time, was more profitable and easier to implement than the method you are currently using, and ...
  • This training system empowered your clients to get better results than the method you are currently using ...

Would you consider switching to the better training method?

Let me show you why the WPTrainMe WordPress User Tutorials plugin can do all of the above and more.

WPTrainMe Provides WordPress Users With An Effective Learning Tool

The WPTrainMe WordPress User Tutorials plugin gives users ‘one-click’ access to hundreds of detailed WordPress step-by-step tutorials in their own dashboard and helps your clients “connect all of the dots” as they progress forward.

Tutorial modules are organized in logical sequence and because we store all of the information on our servers, we can easily manage and update the content. Updated content is immediately available to WPTrainMe plugin users.

Training Clients To Use WordPress With WPTrainMe Is As Simple As 1-2-3

Let me show you how simple it is to train your clients using the WPTrainMe plugin:

Step 1 – Install The WPTrainMe Plugin On Your Client Sites

After building your clients a great WordPress site, simply install the WPTrainMe plugin on their site and agree to touch base with them every 90 days or so as part of your after sales support system.

Don’t want to give clients ALL the answers? Then start with the FREE plugin edition which gives them 70+ essential WordPress “how-to” tutorials. This will empower your clients to use WordPress, yet still leave you with room to offer them additional services like WordPress management, optimization, security, etc. (all of these areas are covered in the PRO edition).

Step 2 – Schedule An Initial WordPress Training Session

All you need to do after installing the plugin on your clients’ sites is show them how to access the tutorials. This is your initial training session.

You can go over the same basics as you were doing before (e.g. how to create a new post, add content, etc …). The difference, however, is that now your clients have a complete system they can follow that can help them grow beyond just the very basics, and ongoing up-to-date help they access any time from their own dashboard.

Step 3 – Provide Ongoing Client Support

After showing clients how to access the WPTrainMe tutorials, simply agree to “touch base” with them on a regular basis (e.g. every 90 days or so) and see how they are progressing along. If they need help, you can easily pinpoint where your client is currently at, work out what their next step should be to keep moving forward and then point them to the tutorials that will give them the answers they need. This is your WordPress training and support system.

Doesn’t WPTrainMe sound like a better, smarter, easier, more time-saving and more cost-effective way to train your clients?

Think of the valuable time you will save training your new clients:

  • When clients email you or calling you asking for help with WordPress, simply direct them to the appropriate tutorial inside WPTrainMe.
  • Avoid long “one-on-one” training sessions and on-site training visits. After showing clients how to log into their WP sites, just say “select the WPTrainMe item from the menu and click on the ‘View Tutorials’ tab, or click on the “Help” tab any time you need help using WordPress!”
  • You can personally guide clients through the tutorials online, or over the phone if they need to be shown how something works in WordPress. Just ask them to open up the tutorial on their browser, then do the same and walk them through the process, using the screenshots and step-by-step instructions provided in the tutorials.
  • Why waste valuable time trying to reinvent the wheel to create WordPress training guides and training PDFs that are hard to update, that leave out important steps, or that really don’t empower clients to become competent WordPress users?

It’s a fact that most business owners are simply too busy to do everything themselves, even if they are given the resources that show them step-by-step how they can do it themselves.

The more that you empower new WordPress users to discover what they can achieve with WordPress, the more WordPress products and services they will want to use. This creates additional opportunities for your business to generate new revenue streams.

For example, you can provide newsletter tips, articles and blog posts covering some of the WordPress strategies discussed in the tutorials and offer additional services that clients can outsource to you to help them grow their business online, should they find themselves too busy to follow the instructions in the tutorials.
