Heads up: Only the nerds are using ClickMinded.

When friends ask me how ClickMinded is going, or when someone asks wether or not we are growing, I like to say that ClickMinded used to be a dumpster fire that makes money in spite of us and not because of us.

I have been doing digital marketing for almost 10 years now, but it was only recently that it started to feel like this business was not constantly on fire.

The list of things that went wrong every week was ENDLESS.

In fact, the most infamous example is perhaps the launch of version 5 of our SEO Course in the summer of 2017.

You think YOU’RE a mess? You have NO IDEA what a mess is until you’ve seen the train wreck we were working with last year: 

  • Our email list wasn’t organized, so we spent 2 full days just trying to figure out who we should and shouldn’t email.
  • We hosted a webinar and sent a broken link to our entire email list, and then wondered why no one was coming.
  • After the webinar, we sent 2 more emails with broken links. People wanted to buy, but they just couldn’t.
  • One of our automated systems broke, people had paid us but they couldn’t access the course they paid for.
  • The webinar was a disaster. I was in a small room with no AC and my internet connection was terrible. People kept complaining about not being able to hear or see me. I was sweating and it looked like I had been kidnapped by ISIS.

 

I think you get the picture.

That changed when we started using Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)

SOPs are just really comprehensive checklists. They are EXTREMELY DETAILED instructions that anyone can follow to perform a specific task and get the same outcome over and over again.

We’re creating SOPs for everything in ClickMinded’s day-to-day operations. From small tasks that take a few minutes to complete, to complex processes that have dozens of steps.

SOPs allow us to operate large and complex campaigns (like this launch, or creating six online courses simultaneously) without overlooking important steps—which leads us to drastically reduce the number of mistakes we make and increase the effectiveness of our marketing strategy.

We created the SOP Library to solve a major problem for anyone trying to learn digital marketing.

The digital marketing content out there is too broad and vague.

I bet something like this has happened to you:

  1. You read a post about the SEO trends to look out for in 2017.
  2. The post suggests that you should check your site for technical errors.
  3. You decide to perform an SEO audit of your site but when you’re supposed to start, you’re more like ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

We’re changing that.

Introducing the ClickMinded SOP Library

With the ClickMinded Digital Marketing SOP Library, you (or your staff) can flawlessly execute powerful digital marketing tactics with 99% accuracy, and grow your business faster than ever.

If we tell you to perform an SEO audit of your site, our SEO Audit SOP will tell you exactly what to do, which tools to use, and what to look for with an almost painful level of detail.

Questions You Probably Have

Here are the answers to the questions we get every single day.

ClickMinded is a digital marketing training platform. It has 7 courses 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.

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 includes a 14-day money back guarantee.

All courses includes 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. Two of our most popular ones are the SEO certification and the social media marketing certification.

Complete all 7 courses and exams, and you’ll earn the ClickMinded Digital Marketing Certification.

No.

Certification is not required for this industry. 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.
