SEO Training

The only thing I love more than doing SEO is teaching small business owners and marketing teams how to do their own SEO.  I’ve been doing so since 2004 and have helped hundreds of businesses climb the likes of Google, Yahoo! and Bing.

I currently offer three ways for business owners to take advantage of my training: classroom, webinar and private.  All three are explained below.

SEO WebinarClassroom SEO Training

Every month I teach an SEO class at the Sonesta Suites in the Westport Plaza area of St. Louis.  Topics range from link building to local SEO to analytics.  All of the various classes are from 7 to 9pm and also include a 6:30-7pm networking event so that you can meet other St Louis business owners.

The classroom training costs $10 per session and is coordinated through the WIMB Meetup page.  Only 30 seats per session are available, and all classes are scheduled 3-4 months in advance.  Individuals, groups and teams are welcome to attend, although larger groups may want to take advantage of a private training course instead.

I also teach SEO bootcamps & workshops from time to time through the meetup as well.  These are bring your laptop and get stuff done kind of classes, and typically cost more.

DIY SEO Training

Can’t make it to the classroom events or prefer to learn from your living room or office?  Every month I host at least one – sometimes several – webinars on SEO related topics.  These webinars are on a wide variety of SEO topics.

Webinar costs are on average $27 per event, however there are times when a free webinar is hosted.  To find out about the latest webinar schedule, visit my webinar page.

Private Training and Consulting

For larger groups, marketing teams and corporate clients I recommend a half day or full day training class.  These classes can encompass a wide variety of topics from link building to HTML considerations.
