Webinar: WordPress for Toastmasters Tutorial, Tues. Jan. 5 @ 7 pm Eastern Time

Start off 2016 with a new Toastmasters club website. This webinar will cover the options for setting up a free club website here or using the free software to set up your own, independently hosted site. It will also be an opportunity to get answers to your questions from the creator of the software, David F. Carr, social media chair at Toastmasters District 47.

The WordPress for Toastmasters project aims to provide Toastmasters clubs with a more full-featured web and social media marketing platform, combined with tools for meeting management and tracking member progress. This webinar will cover how to set up and manage a website, either as a subdomain of a related site, toastmost.org (myclub.toastmost.org), or as an independent website. The toastmost.org “cloud” service and the open source software are both free.

This software was originally created for use by Club Awesome Toastmasters, so you can look at www.clubawesome.org for an example of how having a blog built into the website makes it easier to offer distinctive features like a “Video Guide to a Toastmasters Meeting” with sample speeches, evaluations, and table topics to give site visitors a better taste of the Toastmasters experience.

WordPress for Toastmasters combines WordPress, a standard platform that powers many online publications, and adding a WordPress-branded theme and plugins that add Toastmasters-specific functions. The software is freely available through the WordPress plugin repository, and free (ad-supported) sites are also available through wp4toastmasters.com.
