Course Description

[UPDATED: August 2016]

They say "time and tide wait for no man" and the same can be said of marketing online today. A day doesn't seem to pass without someone somewhere telling you about another marketing tactic you "absolutely must do or you'll be left behind!"

Rubbish ... and I'll prove it to you. In this "Lunch n Learn" style narrated presentation (I created this training so you could quickly learn what you need in the time it takes to eat your lunch) I'll share the 10 "modern marketing" tactics that you can dump today.

WARNING: I don't pull any punches with the advice and recommendations contained within this training, in fact I know a few sectors of the online marketing community are rather "upset" with my advice because it runs contrary to what many others will tell you.

I take aim at SEO, blogging, apps, PR and more and to be fair I don't just say "trust me" ... I also explain WHY each course of action is recommended. You'll see why dropping any one or more of these tactics will save you time and money. Guaranteed.

If you have any questions, by all means get in touch - I'm here to help.
