What to DO When you Don’t Know What to DO

We all love WordPress but know that things can go wrong from time to time. What if you knew exactly what to do whenever a WordPress issue arises? This can include anything from a theme or plugin issue all the way to those really bizarre things that can happen leaving you clueless how to troubleshoot them. No high level amount of technical experience needed with the tricks we will show you. Being equipped to handle WordPress issues can really help you keep things running smoothly on your site and focus on the fun stuff rather than hair pulling and other madness.

Podcasting Plugins to Make Engagement Easier

Getting your audience to engage with you can be difficult. If you are a podcaster, it becomes even harder.

Plugins can make it easier for your audience to engage:

  • Premium Podcast Players (Free and Premium)
  • URL shorteners (Lite and Pro options)
  • Social Media Icons and services (including Speakpipe, a voice message plugin)

WordPress as Your Digital Home

There are tons of places to put your content, but not all of them give you the control and ownership you should have. Your WordPress site is still probably the best place to call home for your online creations. In this session I’ll show you why that is, walk through tools and techniques for using WordPress as your digital home while pushing content out to other places, and answer your questions about how to build an online presence that is fully yours.

Troubleshooting WordPress

Sometimes when you’re using WordPress, things just seem to go wrong. It’s not always your fault, so no need to panic. There’s ALWAYS a solution.

What you know in this situation are 2 things – you’re not able to use WordPress and you need to get it back in working order.

This presentation is to make you more aware of what to do when things seem to go wrong with WordPress. We’ll go over reasons why this could happen and some really common scenarios to look for.

Creating Online Courses with WordPress

People who create Online Courses and the eLearning industry is booming and is growing each year. I want to share why people and companies should consider putting their content online teach their audience.

I’ll address how businesses can streamline their training, HR and whatnot through an eLearning platform (built with WP of course). I’ll also talk on how entrepreneurs can package their intellectual property and make online courses to sell.

I’ll give case studies and show the tools that I use to create, host, market and sell online courses for my client projects.

I believe that learning how to properly teach online and package it in a way that impacts the student’s life is a topic that many will want to learn about.

About WordCamp Dayton

WordCamp Dayton is a not-for-profit conference. Our speakers come at their own expense and are not paid for presenting. Our organizers are not compensated in anyway, and the event is staffed entirely by volunteers.

Similar technology training conferences cost hundreds or even thousands while WordCamp Dayton costs attendees less than dinner for two. How are we able to do this? Because of our generous sponsors.

Thank you for making WordCamp Dayton happen March 4-5, 2016 at Wright State University.
