Since its launch in 2011, the WP101 Plugin has been trusted by hundreds of WordPress developers, designers, and consultants to teach their clients how to use WordPress. Here’s what they have to say about us…
Cathy Tibbles Founder https://wpbarista.com
For years, I’ve included the WP101 videos in my ‘after purchase’ support product. For those who serve beginners to WordPress, this is essential! When Shawn started out, his videos were the only truly professional videos. Today, there is more competition, but honestly—I can always trust these are up to date. My clients follow these videos word-for-word.
Confession… I tried to do without these videos for about a month and realized very quickly that I depend on them! These tutorials go into each client site, and I include the links in every single theme’s documentation. I depend on these videos to save me from writing endless brain-zapping docs.
Rebecca Gill President of Web Savvy Marketing https://www.web-savvy-marketing.com
We install the WP101 Plugin on every client website—from new bloggers to professors at Big Ten universities. This has significantly reduced support questions and support-related costs, which has easily paid for the subscription to the WP101 Plugin. Financially, this was a very sound business decision and has provided significant ROI. But more importantly, the videos have empowered our customers to obtain self help when they need it and as often as needed, which in turn has created a very positive user experience.

Of all the plugins I’ve bought and paid for, none have been so valuable as the WP101 Plugin. It’s saved me time not having to explain how to use WordPress and allowed me to make custom videos specific to each site. More than that, I have peace of mind knowing that each WordPress update will result in updated videos, so they’ll never be out of date. Thank you!
Thomas Umstattd Jr. CEO of Author Media https://www.authormedia.com
We put the WP101 Plugin on every new site we build and instruct our clients to watch through all the videos. The result is that our basic support questions have been cut in half! Now when someone emails us, chances are something is actually broken.

As you watch most screencast tutorials, you’ll quickly realize that the person recording them is just clicking through every screen and checkbox, trying to show you everything that’s in their head. That’s because they’re not teachers. They’re not educators. They’re just expert users of the software. The difference at WP101 is that the entire team behind it are focused on education. They’re focused on making sure that you can learn. And to that end, the videos have a completely different feel… one that I think you’re going to appreciate.
Bill Erickson WordPress Consultant https://www.billerickson.net
The WP101 Plugin is a huge benefit to my business. Whenever I start a new project, I set the client up with the WP101 videos so they can become familiar with WordPress — while I’m still working on their project. Many of my clients have never used WordPress before and aren’t very tech-savvy. Before the WP101 Plugin, I’d often spend hours explaining how to manage menus or upload images to their site. Now, I’m free to work more productively, and my clients enjoy the videos right in their dashboard.

The WP101 Plugin is a perfect way for me to let clients self-educate (and have an ongoing reference) for how use their new site. Clients save cash they would’ve spent on one-on-one training and I save time answering basic support questions. A major win and well worth the money!
Amy Hubbard-Valentine Wicked Web Designer https://www.wickedwebsitedesigners.com
I’ve just installed the WP101 Plugin on 13 client sites so far and you have just saved me hundreds of hours of training clients to use their WordPress website! As a WordPress website designer I am delighted to have found this awesome tool and the feedback from clients already is very positive! Thanks so much!

With the WP101 Plugin, I now have a training tool I can pass on to my clients so they can learn at their own pace, in their own office, how to use WordPress, or how to improve how they use WordPress. It’s changed how I work, without a doubt.
Nicole Drasati https://www.brainbuzzstudios.com/
I always wanted a way to provide training videos to my website clients so they can learn to administer their own website. I used to train every single client on how to use their website, and besides being time consuming, most people can’t absorb everything you teach them in one sitting. So, the WP101 Plugin is the best solution! Now I can give each of my clients access to these professionally-made training videos that they can watch right in the backend of their own website, whenever they want. I don’t have to provide one-on-one training anymore, and everybody wins!
Derek Marcinyshyn Monashee Mountain Multimedia https://monasheemountainmultimedia.com/
When I build custom WordPress client sites, one of the first plugins I reach for is WP101. They’re professional and easy to follow for every user. I know with confidence that after letting my clients watch the videos at their own pace, they will understand how to self-manage their new site.

I am proud to offer these to my clients as a bonus for hosting with me. The WP101 Plugin is a perfect match for me… no video viewing or hosting hassles. Just install the plugin and when updates are available, they’ll be instantly available to my clients. WELL WORTH the monthly fee!
James Dalman WordPress Designer & Consultant https://www.jamesdalman.com/
As an entrepreneur and design coach I was going to create WordPress training courses for my clients, but then I discovered WP101 and it hit me… why reinvent the wheel? Now I use the WP101 videos for all of my clients so I can focus on what I do best. It just makes sense!

As a web designer, you only have to sit down with a WordPress newbie once to realize that making the WP101 tutorial video series available to clients is a very worthwhile investment!
Mark Forrester Co-Founder of WooThemes https://woocommerce.com
WP101 is a hugely valuable educational tool for our users, and we can promote it as one of our own value add-ons when purchasing from us. Shawn is an absolute pleasure to work with and constantly going beyond the call of duty!
Grant Griffiths Co-Founder of Headway Themes https://www.headwaythemes.com/
The WP101 videos have become a key part of our support for new users especially. There is never a day that goes by I do not sent someone or in some cases, many new customers right to the videos.
Stephanie Sammons Author, Speaker, and Consultant https://stephaniesammons.com
Shawn’s WP101 videos were exactly what we were looking for to provide our clients with ongoing guidance on how to operate their WordPress site. The videos (and subsequent updates) have been an invaluable tool and saved us significant time while enhancing our service package offering!

Because WP101 is so well done, developers/trainers no longer need to train their clients in WordPress. Just tell them to spend the money on WP101’s tutorials. In fact… just incorporate it into the fee!
Mark McLaren Online Marketing Consultant https://mcbuzz.wordpress.com/
Shawn’s video tutorial style is exemplary. Unlike some other WordPress video tutorial makers I know, Shawn does not shoot from the hip. His presentations are polished and precise. Think about the time and care taken to make these tutorials – and how much you will gain by using them – when you decide to subscribe.
