In today’s video I show you how to find and install themes and plugins. I talk about some of the pitfalls when using free WordPress themes. Some are coded poorly. Some slow down your site. Others hurt your site’s SEO (search engine optimization). So care should be taken when using a free WordPress theme.

After the discussion and examples about choosing and installing a theme, I explain how to find and install plugins. For an example, I show you how to install and activate Jetpack, a pretty sweet WordPress plugin that adds significant functionality to your professional WordPress website.

In the next video (#5), I’ll explain how to set up your WordPress site as a static website — not as a blog. This is useful if you’re looking to build a professional website — not a blog! I’ll also explain how to change the title and set up permalinks. In video #6 we’ll talk a bit about promoting your new website. Stay tuned.
