As consumers, marketing managers and business people we use Google every single day to find products and services to fulfill our needs… so do our clients and customers.
The first half of this hands-on, practical workshop will leave you buzzing with actionable SEO strategies and a greater understanding of how and why Google ranks certain websites highly.
Delivered in a clear, easy to comprehend manner, this workshop is ideal for any marketer that wants to drive organic traffic to their website or is just curious to understand what your agency is doing for you.
This course is hands-on. You will work in groups to analyse, discuss and present ideas around search, content and link acquisition. You will need a laptop and ideally a Google AdWords log-in (one per table).
The second half of this course will teach you how to convert your hard-earned website visitors into leads and sales through OPTIMISING your Conversions. Filled with tips and techniques, you will leave with the skills to make an immediate difference to the revenue and leads generated by your website.
You understand your website traffic- but how do you convert that traffic to sales?
Is your website content relevant to your prospective customers?
Just how easy is it for customers to navigate your website?
A live session will be held each Thursday from 12:00pm - 1:30pm over four weeks. The facilitator will present that week's topic live online with other participants. There will also be activities and resources to support your learning.
You can do SEO as a two week workshop, CRO as a two week workshop or both as a four week workshop.
