I’m going to tell you something you definitely already know.
Content for digital marketers today is garbage.
Everything you read is quick hacks, tips, and crappy Business Insider articles about chatbots.
Every post is, shockingly, “The Ultimate Guide to <insert trending tactic>”.
And “growth hacking”… NOPE. Not even gonna go there.
Still, all of that content promises that you’ll be able to grow your business if you follow their 7 simple steps or their 3 quick tips, or the 5 daily habits.
You know I’m not making this stuff up, because you see it all the time.
You don’t need me to tell you that this stuff sucks. But the worst part is that it works.
Media outlets drive crazy amounts of traffic by peddling this nonsense.
We know it because we’ve done it in the past. Shameful.
We know that we could grow ClickMinded if we did the same thing—we even considered it and started making a plan for it.
... And then we felt gross.
I promise you, that you don’t need to read 3 blog posts a week from Entrepreneur.com on how to increase your Twitter followers.
I promise you!
What you need is great, experience-driven content with easy-to-use, step-by-step instructions on how to implement it on your own.
We got tired of digital marketers using cheap tricks on each other all day.
So we've decided to pivot and go completely against what seems to be working for everyone else in the game because we are sick and f*cking tired of the listicles.
You heard that correctly. THERE WILL BE NO LISTICLES.
If you want to become a world-class digital marketer, what you need is comprehensive, actionable content that will truly help you grow a business.
We’ve been thinking about this a lot and decided that we need to create the content that WE wish WE had when WE were first starting.
We thought about it a lot, and realized that it came down to only two things:
That started us on a journey.
We decided to create the content that we wish had existed when we were first getting started.
We decided to go out there and create the best digital marketing courses you can imagine, taught by some of the best people in the world, for serious digital marketers only.
ClickMinded includes 7 comprehensive classes on digital marketing, as well as a collection of digital marketing templates called the SOP library.
It's designed to teach you how to massively increase traffic and sales for any website as quickly as possible.
If you're brand new to digital marketing and not sure where to begin, our world-famous SEO checklist is a great place to start. You may also want to look at our digital marketing template library, including our easy-to-use Youtube description template, or check how authoritative your site is with our domain authority checker.
Entry level to intermediate comprehension.
ClickMinded was initially designed to onboard newly hired designers, data scientists and engineers working on search engine optimization at PayPal and Airbnb.
It's since evolved into a more comprehensive digital marketing training platform. While our focus is on startups and individuals with an entry level to intermediate understanding of online marketing, even experts will find most of the content extremely helpful.
The courses and step-by-step walkthroughs are split up in a way so that the introductory content can be easily skipped if needed.
Each course ranges from 3-6 hours long, and they've been cut up into small, digestible and organized segments, so that you can easily refer back to specific lessons when you have questions.
Extremely actionable. After having our friends and colleagues take all 7 courses, the most frequent comment we heard was “This is great… but how do I get started?”.
That’s why we added comprehensive campaign walkthroughs throughout each of the courses. It’s pure video screen capture, and contains the exact strategies that we use every day.
Yes. The platform is 100% responsive and works on all mobile and tablet devices.
Probably. Most ClickMinded students expense it for work or for their business.
No accountants or CPAs were involved in the making of this advice, so be sure to check with yours first.
With that said, if you're trying to increase website traffic and sales for your business, this is probably a relevant business expense.
You can attend at any time.
ClickMinded is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish. The course includes unlimited lifetime access as well. Once you enroll, you'll never lose access to the content, and can refer back to it as much as you'd like.
None. You can learn everything in these courses through other people’s blog posts, forums and your own trial-and-error.
There is absolutely nothing secret here and you can absolutely teach yourself digital marketing and learn it all on your own.
ClickMinded is designed to make learning digital marketing easier and faster.
We've made it as easy and fast to learn as possible, but we won’t be teaching you anything you can’t learn on your own with enough time invested.
All courses include a 14-day money-back guarantee.
All courses include unlimited lifetime access and free updates for life.
Yes. Anytime we push out an update to a course, that's included. For free. You'll get that automatically. Forever.
Actually, this happens all the time. That's why each course includes unlimited lifetime access, and free updates for life. If there is a change, you'll hear about it. And it's included in the course for free.
Each course includes a certification. Finish the course, pass the final exam and you'll earn your certification.
Certification is not a must-have for a digital marketing career. The best people in the game don't have certifications, and for many people, you simply don't need one.
With that said, some people like to show future recruiters and clients that they (or their staff) have taken and earned a certification.
We've also received feedback that many employers won't expense the training without some type of evidence the student has completed the course. We got so many requests from our users for this, that we decided to add it.
Sweet. Let us know how it goes.
