This one’s coming up fast and hard (that’s what she said, am I right folks?), on March 20, but it is perfect if you’re looking for a full-day crash course on SEO. That day, at the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce (200 E. Randolph St.), from 8 a.m. ’til 5 p.m., if you pony up the pasta ($495, plus a $9.95 fee) you will, be able to take your SEO knowledge from somewhat beginner to advanced intermediate. What does that mean?
It means the four teachers (Sean McGinnis, Carolyn Shelby, Dave Rohrer and Eric Pratum) want you to come in with some basic SEO knowledge already. This is not for flat-out newbies. The instructors will cover everything from the fundamentals and how to be more relevant online to how to be more authoritative on the topics you have prowess over and also how to interpret and improve your analytics. The course is being offered through 312 Digital, which is a Chicago-based company that provides digital marketing training classes. It’s super-legit and explains why it’s priced for professionals only.
