Society of Work is excited to share the expertise of one of our own- Justin Kropp! Justin will be teaching a three part series intended for those new to WordPress, looking to build an online presence for themselves or their business. This series will cover account creation, domain registration and setup, themes and custom design, plugins, content basics, strategy, and best practices.
