How you could benefit from training in SEO

If you write for the web, understanding SEO is crucial.

Our SEO article writing course equips you with the knowledge you need to:

  • promote your business or organisation through content marketing
  • establish yourself as a self-employed freelancer or blogger
  • work in a marketing agency or marketing department
  • earn money through writing SEO web articles

But why is SEO such a crucial skill to master?

Because, every day millions of people search for specific information on the web.

As we teach you in our SEO article writing course, the higher your content ‘ranks’ in relevant search results, the more likely it is to get clicked on.

This means more targeted visitors to your site.

As an example of how well SEO works, try a Google search for ‘copywriting course’. You’ll see we rank highly on this term!

In fact, many of our courses have consistently appeared on page one for over ten years – we often rank number one.

Former student, Linda Soto, started our course as an SEO novice. By the end, she was a confident SEO article writer able to use the techniques we taught her to rebrand and re-launch her website. See her review

If you would like to learn the very techniques that we employ, our comprehensive SEO article writing course shares our secrets for success.
