We get it. You’re tired of trusting your digital marketing fate to an outsource SEO provider who provides everything but results. Or, you’re tried of seeing your team struggle with Search Engine Optimization (or train themselves during spare moments by watching YouTube videos). But first, before you take action to get your team the SEO training they need, you need to answer the following question (we promise, it’s painless):
Multiple Choice Question. Do you want to train your staff on
A) Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
B) Achieving Business Goals with Your Website
If you selected “A,” you’ll find in-house SEO training from lots of companies. If you are more interested in “B,” then this is the training you want.
Effective Corporate SEO Training is About a Mindset
The field of SEO is often afflicted with a mentality that favors results that are irrelevant to you as a business manager. For example, so what if you rank number one for Speckled Monkey Cobra? If a ranking brings you no business, it’s merely a vanity metric. But much of SEO training focuses on such vanity metrics.
In our training we start by conducting an interview to learn about your business. We determine what issues you face, the knowledge level and experience of your staff, and what stands in the way of achieving every one of your digital marketing – and business – goals.
Once we have a clear understanding of your business and your team, only then can we start planning out the best curriculum for your particular situation. But once again, the training is focused on achieving BUSINESS results, not SEO results.
