Listener Feedback

Chad Warner (
I offer my clients a WordPress update maintenance service, which includes updates to WordPress core, plugins, and themes. I offer this to clients who have their own hosting and those whose sites are hosted in my hosting account. I tell clients that it’s critical to keep their sites updated for the sake of security, and that I remove the hassle by handling the updates.

In 2012 I charged $10/mo for this service, but in 2013 I’m raising it to $20/mo because of the work involved. I’m usually handling backups and sometimes troubleshooting plugins and themes that break, which can be time-consuming. Almost all my clients pay for each year upfront.

How do you teach someone how to use WordPress?
– Here’s how I do it
– Sign up for a free account or use similar screen sharing application like Skype
– Run ScreenFlow in the background so I can give the clients a copy at the end
– Take them to the WordPress dashboard page and login with their credentials
– I talk about the Dashboard first
– Then highlight the other areas (Posts – Comments) & (Appearance – Settings) just a high level overview
– Then I show them how to add a post / page.
– How to save / schedule a post

Call To Action

– Back up your site and install WordPress 3.5
