More about this course

In this course, you will learn how to create a WordPress based Social Media Community website from scratch with the help of some free as well as paid premium plugins and themes which I will provide for free with each course enrollment which would otherwise cost you approximately $50 per theme and plugin separately. You will also learn how to host your WordPress Website on a live host and also provide it security using SSL Certificates. You will be able to create your own community-based websites for yourself as well as for your clients and earn revenue.

The website you create will give you total freedom on whom you want to add in your friend circle, which groups and forums to join, which event to attend. The website will let you add your profile photos, videos, quotes, poems, etc to your wall feed. This website can be used not only as a social networking portal but also as a file sharing and discussion forum where like-minded people can interact with each other. This website will also allow you to create blogs which you can use to attract traffic to your website and ultimately earn revenue.

I will also share some useful tips and tricks throughout the course which will not only help you complete this website project successfully but also help you in the long run too as a website developer.
