About the Instructor

In 2008, Scott Winterroth was introduced to WordPress while he was starting his first blog, CountryMusicChicago.com. Utilizing his journalism degree, PR experience, and photography skills, Scott managed to build an online community from scratch that quickly became a known resource for all things country music in Chicago. Along Scott’s Country Music Chicago journey, he quickly became enamored with WordPress, an open-source website content management system, and digital marketing tactics such as search engine strategy and content marketing. Scott quickly realized that when combined these tools can be very powerful for not only building blogs but also for marketing businesses online.
