Check Out my Talk on Building a Website in an Hour – ABA TechShow

WordPress in an Hour for LawyersReady to Discover How to use WordPress to make a Law Firm Website? Find out at ABA TechShow


At the ABA Techshow in Chicago this week, I will be teaching a seminar, “How to build a website in an hour.” My session is on Thursday from 2:00-3:00.

Now, of course, you can’t really make a website in an hour, the title just refers to the time period of the seminar, as well as my book on the same topic. For a preview, check out this article I wrote on creating websites.

It will be difficult to cover everything in an hour, but here is what I plan to address:

  • Choosing a domain name
  • Picking a host
  • Installing software
  • Setting up the basics
  • Working with plugins and widgets
  • Updating software
  • Choosing themes
  • Adding content
  • SEO
  • Ethics

As I go through each of these topics, I will discuss tips and tricks you need to know about each of these topics.  I will include:

  • What to watch out for when picking a domain name
  • The webhosts I recommend
  • Setting up the basics of WordPress
  • How to work with plugins and widgets, including suggestions on some plugins you should use
  • Making certain you keep your site up-to-date to avoid malware
  • Identifying and editing the themes which control the look of your site
  • How to add content including pages, posts and media
  • SEO ticks and trips, including the value of Yoast, Moz and ahrefs
  • Ethics to help you avoid getting into trouble with your disciplinary board

Attending ABA TechShow is really an amazing experience. This is my second time and I am looking forward to seeing old friends and learning new information.

If your law firm needs a website, or needs to fix up the one it already has, check out my session. You can also buy my book on the ABA’s website.
