It’s Time to Rethink Your SEO Training
Almost everything we know has changed in the past year or so, and SEO training is no exception. We know that better than anyone.
Prior to 2020, we had a thriving, world-class SEO classroom here in Southern California where students from all over the world would gather to learn SEO. We also conducted one-day SEO training courses at major marketing conferences all over the U.S.
Back in April 2020, I wondered if virtual SEO learning would be the future. And it seems that it is, at least for now. Many of the in-person events we know and love have gone digital over the past year — with much success — as businesses adapted to a new normal.
As we continue to head into uncharted territory, SEO training is evolving. Not only has it changed from an in-person venue to an online format, but also it’s evolving beyond that.
Now that people are getting used to online learning, they’re expecting more.
For example, one survey showed the majority of online students were dissatisfied with remote learning due to a lack of collaboration with other students.
For a true learning experience that can engage many different types of learning styles, you need more than just a package of online videos. You need to be able to engage in different ways with the instructor and your co-learners. And you need access to all types of content — the content you watch, the content you read and the content you create with others.
I’m pleased to say that is exactly what we have created with our new SEO training experience. We’ve completely reimagined the SEO classroom into a digital format and created a complete SEO learning experience for our students online.
I believe this new format is a great model for the future of online SEO learning, so let me tell you more …
The SEO Training Membership
Our revamped SEO training program is more than just static instructional videos.
Yes, my SEO course is still the primary feature, updated and reformatted for virtual learning.
But to enhance that learning experience, we’ve created a complete SEO training membership program. It includes online training, downloadable presentation slides, live Q&A sessions for members, e-books, FAQ videos, “Ask Us Anything” content, deep-dive mini courses, a discussion forum and access to our comprehensive SEO tools.
Online Training Videos
The complete SEO training course that we’ve offered in-person for many years (and we hope to again in the future) is now formatted for online learning.
Over more than 15 hours of instruction in 48 professionally produced videos with me, Bruce Clay, you get a world-class SEO education. Not only that, but you can learn at your own pace, and watch the videos again and again.
And, as we update the course, you get access to all the new content at any time during your membership.
Live Q&A Sessions
You should not be alone on your SEO journey.
A favorite part of my in-person classes has always been the freedom to ask questions during breaks. So when we designed our program, I wanted to build in opportunities to talk with me and other experts live and get your questions answered.
So members get to attend live, monthly Q&A sessions. You can meet directly with me and other qualified SEO training professionals here at the company to ask your burning questions.
Plus, members can access all the recorded Q&A sessions anytime.
Being able to collaborate with other students and share experiences in SEO is one of the things that made our SEO training classroom so great. So we wanted to make sure that was still available for our online students.
Our members-only discussion forum allows you to post questions, get answers, discuss topics and interact with other participants.
Some people like to have access to presentation slides to reference as needed or follow along and make notes during the training. With your membership, you have access to all the course materials.
Most people have questions about what they’ve just learned. So we created videos that discuss the most frequently asked questions about the material. These recorded conversations provide extra clarification after each of the 12 sections of the SEO training course.
“Ask Us Anything” Videos
Brief AUA videos answer more specific questions about SEO and get to the point in about three minutes (versus the Q&A live sessions, which are commonly one hour). See this one as an example:
E-Books and Guides
Additional downloadable resources give you an in-depth look at important and trending topics in SEO. And you get access to all of our e-books with your membership, including new and updated materials as they are added.
In addition to our full online SEO training course, each members-only mini course takes a deep dive into a particular SEO topic, for example, SEO siloing.
When you’re ready to dig in and start applying what you’ve learned, you’re going to need some good SEO tools to help. That’s why we include a free subscription to our SEOToolSetⓇ for up to three website projects. This set of advanced SEO tools lets you monitor rankings, detect crawling issues, optimize content, analyze competitors and much more. (And new tools are in the works as I write this, which members will automatically receive!)
As another bonus, you get access to our Bruce Clay SEO plugin — a big help for SEO content creators using WordPress.
Rethink Your SEO Training
As every industry continues to adapt to online venues, digital events are evolving. It’s time to get ahead of the curve in your own SEO journey and rethink your SEO training. Rather than watch a few videos, why not try a complete virtual learning experience?
