Note: Included at a discount with the BlogWinners Full Membership.
We’re going to build your website using WordPress, but we do want to make one thing clear: BlogWinners is not a course about how to use WordPress. (But don’t worry — we’re not going to leave you in the dark.)
There are lots of other WordPress courses, and we’re here to share the really valuable information — the information that’s not in other courses. BlogWinners is about teaching you how we’ve created revenue-generating websites and how to apply our methods to change your life.
We’ve licensed the best “How To Use WordPress” video course we’ve ever seen and we’re going to share you with them in this chapter. You’d have to pay for this knowledge elsewhere, but we’re including it in our course for no additional cost. You’ll learn the basics of how to set up a WordPress website, how to navigate the WordPress dashboard, and everything you need to know to get comfortable with WordPress so you’re ready to dive into the meat of our course in the next chapter.
In 2013, David Payette left his job at an Apple Store to start a freelance web design business called Payette Forward. Figuring that "having a blog" would sound good to potential clients, one morning in August 2013, David sat down and wrote the only blog post he ever intended to write, and forgot about it. Six months later, that blog post went viral and 5 million people read it in a week.
David relocated to Maui and worked as an SEO and WordPress consultant, occasionally publishing articles on payetteforward.com. As traffic to his website continued to grow, David stepped back from client work entirely to focus on his own projects.
Currently based in New York, David has transitioned Payette Forward from a one-man operation to a small startup with team members in the United States and abroad. He and his team have recently launched BlogWinners, an online course that teaches people how to replicate David's formula for success so that they too can enjoy the freedom of a decentralized lifestyle.
