WordPress Training in Kalispell

The Flathead Conservation District is partnering with the Montana Association of Conservation Districts to offer an introductory WordPress training on Tuesday, July 21, 2015, from 1:00 – 4:00 PM, at the Flathead Conservation District office in Kalispell. Kate Arpin, the Communications Director at MACD, will lead participants through a wide range of WordPress applications. The training is suitable for both novice and intermediate level WordPress users who want to assume greater responsibility for their district website. The training is free to all CD employees and supervisors, but pre-registration is required (space is limited).

Training topics will include:

  • Posts vs. Pages: what content to put where
  • Using Google Analytics to track visitors
  • What to look for in a theme
  • Plugin Management: which are useful, which are not, how many is too many
  • Content Writing: tone & form for effective web communication

  • Event Management: recommended event calendar plugins
  • Publicize: connecting WordPress to social media to build web traffic
