When starting out with WordPress, a very good idea to quickly get up to speed is to use online WordPress video training. Here are some of the best resources for WordPress video tutorials that we’ve come across.

Video User Manuals

video-user-manualsVideo User Manuals is a site delivering a comprehensive video and online manual WordPress plugin that developers can give to their clients.

The quality of these videos is amazing, as you can see by a quick look around their site. The videos are fully rebrandable, making them an excellent choice for those developers out there building websites for clients. Check out the ‘How much is your time worth‘ calculator to really understand how much these videos are worth when you consider time spent on training clients (scroll down on the homepage).


So in a nutshell, what you get are:

  • Over 59 video tutorials and an over-100-page manual
  • Ausralian, US and British accents
  • Complete rebranding possiblities
  • Videos on WooCommerce, WordPress SEO by Yoast and Gravity Forms
  • Automatically updates with each new version of WordPress

This is definitely one of my favourites resources for online WordPress video training so go check it out. Their pricing plans are made up of three options – a Single site install costing $70, a Developer license costing $24 per month (first month only $1) and a Saver license costing $240 per year (with 2 months free).

WordPress 101


In terms of presentation, WP 101 is by far the best site for impeccable WordPress video training. It is very professionally done, and features a video library which you get full access to once you sign up.  The video tutorials are organised in different categories based on your knowledge level.

The quality of these videos is really top notch; Shawn Hesketh, the author, has really created something of high quality here. You take a look at the free videos to see if you agree with me.

WP101 has also partnered with dozens of design agencies, schools, and WordPress consultants to make the WordPress 101 videos available to their audience via their own websites. If you need WordPress video tutorials for your clients, you can purchase the white label licence or even the fully-branded licence which allows you to brand the videos with your own logo and greeting narration.

With over 23,000 members, this is a highly recommended training resource. They have three payment options; 30 days access for  $19 per month, 12 months access for $39 per year (normally $79) and lifetime access for $79 (normally $149).
