SEO CONSULTING & TRAINING
Upskill your staff with dedicated SEO Consultation.
We realise that many large companies are keen to upskill their staff and only tend to lean on external agencies for bigger picture, more strategic works and directions.
SEO Consulting & Training.
Bringing the best out of your team.
You often have the staff to improve the search performance of your website, but you lack the in-depth expertise that comes with experience. Hiring an in-house SEO specialist is expensive and your current in-house team can accomplish a lot with the appropriate strategic direction.
At A1 SEO, we are aware that many major corporations are eager to upgrade the skills of their employees and only use outside firms for the wider picture and strategic planning. Due to this, we have worked with and educated some of the biggest in-house marketing teams in the world, including those for FMCG, B2B, and B2C.
UK Wide Consultation.
With our SEO consultations, you recieve guidance from a professional with at least five years of expertise in the field. These sessions may be used as needed or employed on a longer-term basis.
This component will mostly rely on the internal team that we are working with. We discuss the SEO strategies used by each of your internal teams and provide advice on tech stacks that will enable your company to grow. You may choose the topics for discussion and we can lead you and your team through any search-related issues with our consultation services.
We specialise in training your internal teams
Building the right team.
The SEO industry is notoriously full of cowboys, for want of a better expression. This is due to misinformation pumped into online communities by people who simply do not know what they are talking about.
SEO recruitment is very much a candidate-driven market. SEO salaries range anywhere from £20,000 entry/assistant level to £65,000+ at director level. Most prudent SEO managers sit between £30,000 and £45,000. According to GLASSDOOR, the average SEO salary is £37,922 (May 2019).
All this means that a bad hire can cost a business tens of thousands before even considering the downright catastrophic consequences of letting someone unskilled near your SEO campaigns.
Luckily A1 SEO has helped dozens of companies hire successful SEO managers. We come in the pre-interview stage and help you scope out job specs. We can also attend interviews (hourly fee per interview) and set candidates task to gauge competency.
SEO Training - UK Wide
Training the nation.
SEO is often viewed as a complex subject. Whilst some aspects of SEO are tricky, most marketing professionals have the ability to conduct killer SEO campaigns that help their business or employer dominate their niche. All of our training sessions are carried out in person by our in-house SEO specialist consultant with 5+ years of experience. We do not offer online training courses (yet).
Bespoke SEO Training.
The majority of training sessions involve bespoke sessions. These are either one-on-one or in small groups. These courses can help coach you or your staff members through specific areas of SEO. As such, the content of the course can be decided by you.
The modules below are key fundamentals of SEO we always recommend to any business. Each module is introduced at a beginner level, delving into more advanced topics in a comfortable way. We also love questions!
This module introduces students to link building and equips students with the knowledge to go out there and obtain some killer links. We look at why links are important, how to find potential outreach opportunities, analyzing a link’s value in Ahrefs, marrying content to opportunity and how to write outreach emails. As a bonus, we also look at reverse engineering competitor’s backlinks through Ahrefs.
Looking at keyword research, this module introduces students to the keyword mindset and helps students understand the value of naturally aligning content with keyword goals. Here we look at what keywords are and why they are important, how to find keywords in Ahrefs (paid), SEMrush (paid) and Google Keyword Planner (free), keyword clusters, commercial intent and on-page keyword targeting.
The on-page SEO training module walks students through each individual on-page factor, giving them the knowledge to publish content that ranks. Here we delve into meta titles and descriptions, heading structure and page hierarchy, image optimization, internal linking and keyword density.
