SEO Nibbles

A free mini course to boost your confidence and get you started with SEO.

You know that getting to grips with Google is essential to your business. But for most, the thought of dipping your toe in the Search Engine Optimisation pond fills you with dread. I’m guessing you’ve been avoiding tackling SEO for one of four main reasons:

  1. You feel it’s too technical for you to grasp.
  2. You worry that SEO changes all the time and you’ll never be able to keep up.
  3. You’re confused by all the conflicting information you’ve found online.
  4. You fear you don’t have time to do it yourself or the money to pay an expert.

That’s where this mini course can help, by completing this 100% free mini course you’ll get:

  • A sound understanding of how SEO works
  • The confidence you need to embark on your SEO journey
  • The first steps towards boosting your traffic and conversions
  • An understanding of whether you should pay for SEO or aim for DIY

You’ll receive an email each day with an educational tutorial and a practical exercise to complete.
