“I must say what a hidden gem Pootlepress is, I learnt so much in the one-days training, in fact, it became invaluable knowledge when our previous websites became corrupted, and after the initial panic, I managed to set-up our two main websites within 2 days. The Academy is an amazing resource, easy to use, extremely helpful; in fact, you should put your price up.

I am so glad I googled WordPress courses
