This is a follow on from the last podcasts where we began taking a look at how small business owners could develop their websites in order to improve their business. In this episode Mark takes a look at the WordPress dashboard of my own website; asiabizstories.com, and helps me to understand better some of key features and terms that newbies should be aware of.

In this episode we look at:

  • The purpose of the dashboard
  • Post, Widgets and Plugins
  • How a business can use a website to improve business.
  • The standard options, posts
  • Organising by categories and tags
  • WordPress’s management of Media images, hot linking and image size
  • The difference between Pages, Post and meta data
  • The required basic Plugins and updating
  • Free, Premium and Paid for Themes balancing features and speed
  • Import security changes that should be made
  • Tools selection
  • Domains and sub domains to create more websites
  • Basics settings to improve your websites speed
  • The best option for the address bar

And finally: if you have any questions you’d like Mark to answer send them to comments and suggestion.
