If you've been in the local search space for any length of time you've heard of Mary Bowling, who is one of the leaders in Local. She's a contributor to David Mihm's Local Search Ranking Factors as I am, plus she's on the faculty for Local University and is a popular speaker and blogger on the topic of local search.

I've heard great feedback about Mary's training courses, but she only does them once or twice a year.
The course is developed by Planet Ocean/Search Engine News, the leaders in SEO training.

I wanted to share an exciting update about the Local Search Basics course I previously told you about. When I shared before the live course was time restricted and had limited seats, so I didn't post a link.

If you missed the live course, they are now offering a recorded, on-demand version, so you don't have to schedule time for the live course.

Here is all the info: Local Search Optimization Training Course

I've heard rave reviews! And since it's now recorded, not live, they also added some bonuses to be sure you can get help and get your questions answered too.

About The Course...

The Basic Local Search Optimization Training Course (aka, Local Search 101) is designed to give you the foundational skills to provide this service at a professional level. After four sessions, each approximately one hour-long, you'll acquire the fundamentals that'll provide a rock-solid platform for the skill-set you need in order to meet the ongoing demands of the fastest-growing, most potentially productive segment of online marketing. In our opinion, if you were to learn only one facet of search-marketing, it should be Local Search. This is where the biggest, most sustainable opportunity is to be found.

Full agenda and more info.

I've just expanded my ADVANCED G+ Local on-demand video course which is only open to experienced consultants, so if that sounds like a better fit please use contact form for more info.

Full disclosure: As you know I am constantly sharing great info and tools that I find and willingly share for free. I will never post about anything just for the money. In this case I do make a commission for referring you to Mary's training. So I'm sharing because it's a much needed course, but also any commission I happen to make, helps me pay all the expenses to keep the lights on here at the forum.
