Here's what students have to say about this local SEO course for small business:
5 STAR Student Review: "Every business needs this, not just local!
Great what-to-do instruction to start ranking a business in search engines quick and for a long time. I like additional PDF documents that complement lectures and perfectly replacing (not needed) quizzes. For "how-to" videos they would be fine for busy, non tech-savvy entrepreneurs (or serving all with intermediate level course) but for many the information will suffice well."

The Tagline for my profile says small business ENTHUSIAST for a reason - I love it! It took me decades of various roles in sales, marketing, territory management and developing my own small businesses to realize that it's business itself that motivates and inspires me. Thank you in advance for giving me the opportunity to reach into your life and your business and contribute to your success.
After leaving University during my study of Philosophy (and Bar Tending) I started the only career that I was qualified for at the time - Sales! Over the 30 years since that first sales position my career has spanned truly diverse industries, sizes and types of businesses, and my skill set has expanded along with the times to include Sales Management and Compensation, E-Mail Marketing and Nurturing Programs, SEO and SEM, Video Marketing, Direct Sales, Business to Business, Business to Consumer. Those skills have been applied to several of my own entrepreneurial efforts, big Canadian Telecom manufacturers, small apparel decorating companies, car dealerships and a dozen other big and small businesses. I've run multiple blogs and social media properties, traditional marketing outlets, trade shows and developed successful marketing campaigns.
What does that mean to you? That I have spent my career learning, honing, perfecting skills that will help connect you and your business with your customers. Skills that can help you generate revenues. Skills that you can learn, and that will make a difference in your business right away.
