SEO Training

If you would like to increase the amount of quality traffic viewing your business online, our Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) course can give you the skills and knowledge to make effective changes and keep up to date with Google’s latest developments and opportunities.

A quick glance of Google Analytics will almost certainly reveal a significant proportion of your website's traffic originating from search engines. Unlike group courses, our half-day one-to-one SEO training is a practical course focused entirely on your website/brand so the content is therefore flexible to best suit your needs.

The Search Engine Optimisation training is primarily a non-technical course aimed at giving you or your staff the ability to better understand how people are searching for your business, insightful ways to influence your prominence and how you appear on search results pages. allowing for more informed strategic actions. Giving someone a fishing rod rather than a fish, if you like.

Free SEO tip

On a computer or laptop, do a Google search for your business and look for a panel of information on the right of your screen. If you see a link which says 'Own this business?' (link doesn't appear on mobile searches) you can follow a verification process to take ownership and directly control information and photos that appear here, in local search and map results.

Thankfully more businesses are becoming aware of this, but for those yet to do so, at best, you're not taking advantage of the opportunity to present useful information to your customers. At worst, this information is incorrect.

Google doesn't tell this to businesses directly so many are losing out on presenting the most appropriate and up-to-date information in areas of the web viewed far more than your website might be. This is unfair and it's the reason we give this tip out freely. Google's help pages are a good place to start if you don't know how to access the listing for editing despite no 'own this business' link or don't appear to have a Google Business listing at all.

Who is the course for?

This Search Engine Optimisation training course is designed for marketing professionals to better understand how you appear in search, improve your prominence in search and drive more customer engagement.

How long is the course?

Being a tailored course, we find half a day on the same subject is enough to go through what's relevant to you, keeping concentration levels and information retention high. However we do offer a full day course to include Google Analytics.

How much does it cost?

Our one-to-one SEO training courses are £275 plus vat keeping it lower than many group courses. Combine this with the Google Analytics course in the same day for a cost of £395 plus vat, saving more than £150. Train up to four members of staff at no extra cost. One business benefits so we don't believe in charging extra to train more people from the same organisation.

No. The fundamentals of this course are applicable to any business wanting to maximise the performance of their website and Jon has experience across a variety of industries.
