Do-it-yourself (DIY) WordPress Development

Learn WordPress and boost your business in Ottawa

In the One on One Session

At a time that’s most convenient to you, learn WordPress at your own pace via customized one-on-one sessions. You get up to full two-days of uninterrupted time. Prior to the session, I will assess your WordPress literacy and work with you to create a curriculum tailored to your goals.

In the Group Session

Learn and share your experience in a small group with a maximum of five students. You will learn how to construct a new website and will leave the session with a fully functioning site you can maintain yourself.

“Working with Osamu and Zen Ideas is always a pleasure. They give expert guidance and offer thoughtful solutions. Not only have they helped me build the various web sites I manage, they always teach me ways to think through potential opportunities and problems. Like the best trainers, Osamu coaches with humour, intelligence and compassion — and does it promptly and affordably!”

WordPress Session Topics

The learning programs offered by Zen Ideas focus on two sectors: small businesses and non-profit organizations. Both those sectors normally have limited budgets to devote to their Web development and online marketing activities.
