Learn about free Organic SEO
WordPress websites with Social media offer tools to connect instantly with others around the world for free or at very little cost. Despite what you may have been led to believe about SEO. There are many people all over the world who will offer to optimise your website. These services are costly and do not always bring the desired results.
Keeping up-to-date with new technologies, learning how to use new software or apps is time-consuming. Learning computer terminology, where to look on the screen, understanding what the computer is asking from you – is how you become tech-savvy. WordPress training can save you tons of time and the one-on-one approach is always the best way to learn.
There are so many free tools available that can save you time online. In fact, you can easily learn to create fun promotional designs for social media posts, printing flyers, banners etc, and resize them at the touch of a button. All social media sites have their own specifications and creating work that is within their guidelines can be time-consuming. Knowing what is the best app, plugin or tool to use for your specific purpose is a skill you can learn.
At Computer Coach Australia – we want to empower you.
Whether owning or working within a business you will need to be confident using social media to help your website rank in the search engines. WordPress has many useful features that can track these metrics which is why it’s invaluable for all website owners.

Why working one-on-one is better than group classroom training
Having been classroom teachers we know the importance of learning in the context of your workflow, on your own computer, using your own software and at your own pace. This will increase confidence. Group training is what most people are used to so they go back to attending courses. Some of the problems with group classroom learning is:-
- Slow process to get to what you wanted to learn
- May not start at your level
- One-on-one time is limited to 5-10 minutes maximum
- Travelling time to get to the course
- The teacher may not be a natural teacher
- They are not catered for individual differences
- Students are left behind
Group or online training is created for financial gain by institutions that have invested money to run the group courses. Students are left behind and leave often feeling worse than when they started. Online training can also be hit and miss for many reasons.
At Computer Coach Australia we pride in giving personalised and professional, expert training – one-on-one, face to face or via a remote online connection. This is the best way to learn for everyone.
