SEO Training Chicago, IL
Wasting your time and money with overpriced digital marketing agencies that deliver little to no SEO results? Many Chicago companies are getting ripped off for so-called SEO services. At Emily Journey and Associates, we’ve learned about this problem directly from our clients who hire us for a different service: WordPress Training.
When we ask, "What is that SEO/marketing agency doing for you?"
The answer we get is usually something like, "Uhhhhh, I'm not sure . . . whatever it is, it's not working!"
Overpriced digital marketing agencies are not delivering on their promises blaming algorithms or claiming the need for more time in order to see results. Or, even better, they blame YOU.
Don't believe it.
Here's my first SEO tip: Don't waste your money on web design and marketing agencies that promise results from mysterious behind the scenes activities that primarily involve:
- special html markups,
- micro-sites, or
- automated directory submissions.
Your best investment in search engine optimization begins with in person training for yourself or for your team.

What are the benefits of SEO training?
Gone are the days when you could launch a beautiful website and have potential customers automatically flock to your website.
Consider your investment in print advertising. Wouldn't you rather have more of your prospects find your website through a simple (and free) Google search result?
Get customers to call you
“What if you have a great product but nobody can find your website? Emily’s your remedy. If you want your website to reach the top of Google searches, she’s your person. If you want to learn how to navigate and manage your own WordPress site, she’s your person. If you want follow-ups, check-ins and after-training support, she’s your person. You’re going to be way better off when you understand what the principals are so that you can enhance your own reputation and get the customers that you are now cold calling…to call you.
What about your sales team? Are you still providing them with outdated tools such as brochures and flyers? Wouldn't it be great if you could support their efforts with a naturally strong search engine ranking and inbound leads?

Emily will meet with your staff as a group to teach them basic to advanced SEO–customized for their specific needs and goals.
Team training is perfect for:
- In-House Marketing Teams

What to expect from SEO training
There we were, on page 1 of Google
“We connected and within a week we had a 2 hour virtual consultation scheduled. We implemented her training on our site and within 2 days of posting our SEO strategy pages, there we were, on page 1 of Google in #1 position. Thanks Emily!”
If you're looking for a lengthy PowerPoint presentation and generic handouts, this probably isn't the best option for you. When you book SEO training, be prepared for an interactive, hands-on experience. Here's what you can expect:
- A comprehensive, in person training session customized to your business.
- Support to develop a complete SEO implementation strategy based upon your unique products and services.
- A follow-up session to review your work and get feedback for improvements.
- Receive an additional 1 month of ongoing support and content review after training.
Get started with SEO training
Step 1: Get in Touch
First things first. We'll discuss your SEO goals and challenges. Understanding what you want to accomplish helps me customize your SEO training for your unique needs. This first conversation is also a great time to ask any additional questions you have about the process.
Step 2: Set a Date
We'll get things off the ground by securing a spot on the calendar. Once we have the training date decided, you will be provided with payment instructions.
Step 3: Learn by Doing
At Emily Journey & Associates, we are big proponents of kinetic learning - aka, learning by doing! And since you're seeking some personalized training, it's pretty safe to assume you'd like that kind of atmosphere too. We'll meet in-person or via Zoom as you are guided through the steps of search engine optimization.

SEO Training answers
How soon can I train?
Typically, we can get your SEO training on our calendar about 2 weeks out–sometimes sooner. It is also normal to have to wait up to a month for training during our busy times.
How do I schedule SEO training?
We have 4 WordPress and SEO instructors on our team. Training Coordinator, Erin Brooks, will introduce you to your instructor. Your instructor will work with you to determine your best days and times for training. This will also be a good time to discuss your goals and get answers to any remaining questions you might have.
How do I pay for SEO training?
Once you schedule your SEO training, your instructor will email you a payment link where you can directly and securely enter your payment information. We also have a check payment option.
Will I get printable course materials?
You will receive some templates to use for your SEO strategy planning. Be prepared to take lots of notes! Due to the custom nature of our work, we are quick on our feet and do not work from a pre-made outline. We have plenty of direction to give and we focus on your specific SEO goals and challenges. You can also expect your instructor to point you to valuable resources found on various websites.
