Google Hummingbird Training

Google Hummingbird Training for Small Business Owners

Maximizing the benefit of Google’s Hummingbird Update for Small Business Owners

Google’s Hummingbird algorithm update to its search engine is one of the most profound changes in years. It is a transition from a keyword driven search engine to a mobile natural voice recognition answer engine. You need to know how to optimize your website, reviews, video and social media to maximize your business success with these changes.

This training will explain what you need to do with your website, reviews, mobile platforms and social media to keep attracting the right customers. It will also teach you the pitfalls and how, many of the methods often used in the past, can hurt your business if you keep doing them. We will also go over how the changes are related to semantic search, Google+ author and keywords.

The Hummingbird update helps small business owners be found by mobile and voice activated devices better then before. Understanding how to provide content, video, photos and text that is optimized for Hummingbird is very important. For instance, instead of entering “pizza cary nc” into the Google search box and reading it like a book, the search results (SERP) we are grabbing on Siri (ois) or Google Now (Android) along with asking for them by voice “where can I get gluten free pizza close to my current location?” will result with an exact answer to our query.

The Training was developed by Martin Brossman and Robin Werling. Martin Brossman will bring the latest on this topic that you need to know. He has been a leader in Social Media Marketing for 7 years and written 3 books on the topic along with teaching small businesses how to get real world results since 2006. Robin Werling is an expert on multi-media and optimized content for driving more clients to your business.  Robin has been a business owner of several start-ups including a large construction company for over 10 years in FL  and has been involved in specialized internet marketing for over 6 years traveling the Eastern Coast.

Google Directories

Marketing Your Business Using Free Online Directories *
Developed and taught by Martin Brossman

When visitors are considering spending money in your town, they go first to their phones and tablets ̶ which draw from online directories ̶  to make their decision. Is your business ready to be found?  You can get ready with these 3 information- packed hours delivering valuable tips and strategies for making the most of the online directories like Google Local that enable businesses to be found when shoppers are searching from their desktop or mobile devices.

Since basic listings are free, directories provide a great opportunity for a small business to look as professional as big competitors, and this class will give you the guidelines for setting up your listings in a way that improves search results and builds a stronger Web presence.

Many businesses are surprised to see they are already listed in a number of free directories with a small amount of information, sometimes with mistakes.  We will show you how to claim, correct and expand your listings before someone else does. Discussion will also include how to target desired customers with low-cost online ads.

*Can be taught in a classroom setting or a computer lab (hands-on) class.

Participants for the hands-on class are required to establish a Google email account (gmail) in advance.
