What’s the deal?
ClickMinded was originally a live, face-to-face training class I held for my colleagues in marketing at PayPal. It then evolved into an all-day weekend training course for startups in San Francisco. I was getting good feedback on it and decided to turn it into an online class. Originally designed as a one-day SEO training bootcamp, the much more evolved online version aims to empower students to confidently and intelligently take control of their organic search strategy, as quickly as possible.
When was the class last updated?
What difficulty level are we talking about here?
This course has been developed for people with little to no experience in search engine optimization. That being said, even those well-versed in online marketing will find a significant amount of the information useful. The course and video tutorials are split up in a way so that the introductory content can be easily skipped if needed. A number of my colleagues in the SEO industry have taken away a lot from the course.
How long is the class?
The course is a little more than 5 hours. It has been cut up into small, digestible and organized segments, so you can refer back to it when questions about specific topics come up long after you’ve taken the class.
What secret tactics am I going to learn that no one else knows?
None. You can learn everything in this class through other people’s blog posts, forums, and trial-and-error. There is nothing secret here. That said, there is a lot of information (and misinformation) out there. This class is designed to make search engine optimization as digestible as possible, but it won’t be teaching you anything you can’t learn on your own.
Is the class actionable? Can I implement what I learn immediately?
It sure is, and you sure can, bud. After having some of my friends and colleagues take this class, the most frequent comment I heard was “This is great… but how do I get started?”. That’s why I added a comprehensive video tutorial of how I start a new website in the most SEO-friendly way possible. It’s an hour and twenty minutes of pure video screen capture, and contains the exact strategy I use to developing a website, from concept to completion:
- Thinking up an idea and doing the corresponding keyword research
- Mapping prospective keywords to URLs
- Deciding on and purchasing a domain name
- Getting the site live and hosted on Dreamhost
- Installing WordPress and a WordPress theme
- Configuring wordpress for SEO best practices
- Installing multiple plugins
- Installing Google / Bing Webmaster Tools and analytics
- And a deep analysis of competitor links, in order to get a head start on rankings
Is there a monthly fee? How long will I have access to the course?
No! Just a one time fee, and you’ll have lifetime access to the course, including updates.
