Excellent course and value for money, I have taken advantage of the resit to do SEO essentials a second time and still found I learnt a lot. The teacher was great at explaining all the concepts and how we could apply them to our own websites.
(5.00 out of 5) Stephanie G [ 17 August, 2018 ]
I wasn't 100% sure how valuable this course would be to me. I learnt a heap! It was very informative, John took the time to 'dumb down' everything for me and took the time to relate it back to my business. I always knew that SEO was important, but this has really highlighted how important it actually is. I have a lot of work to do!

When I signed up I didn't realise so much of the course would be allocated to looking at your own website. The emphasis on practical application and real examples was far better than just learning the theory. It was a really useful day and I would definitely recommend.

The course was great and covers a lot of content in one day which I look forward to going away and implementing on my website.
