Link Training Workshop Feedback

Last month I ran the Link Building and Reputation Workshop at SES – a four hour session the day after the Search Engine Strategies conference with a much smaller group. It’s my fourth SES workshop now and I have to admit to being petrified before each session. The group was incredibly diverse and the demands and skill levels very different. I am therefore pretty pleased with the feedback survey that I just received from Incisive Media:

What parts of the training were most interesting and useful to you?

2. Quality of links
3. One to one input from Dixon on issues specifically relevant to me
4. Link audit tools

Please enter any additional comments about this workshop.
1. It was really interesting. It was possible to speak about our business case. May be the first part in the internal linking could have been more developed.
2. The workshop was a bit too technical for my knowledge
3. Dixon did a good job of generating content to satisfy a broad range of user levels, and took the time to find out our respective levels. I think as the industry matures you will find it increasingly difficult to speak to the broader range of abilities and may need different training levels. Dixon provided me with some fabulous one to one advice which will pay for the cost of the training alone.

I am very grateful to those that wanted to put “1” or “2” for politely not responding and I also hope that the marking was out of 5, bot 10 (otherwise I’m going to get very embarrassed). For my part – I’d like to say thanks to everyone on the course for participating and joining in.

If you would like training, the SES training sessions are well worth a look. They are run all over the world. If you have a larger corporate group, Feel free to ask what training Receptional can offer.

Affiliate conference in London will be unmissable

Next month sees the second A4U conference at London Excel. I’ve been hanging around Matthew Wood like a rash for several years now. because he has well and truly tapped into the UK affiliate industry in the same way Danny Sullivan managed to corner the search marketing industry about a decade ago. Last year’s conference was really a blinding success and I especially enjoyed being on a search panel with Marcus Tandler and Joost and  Jason Duke with Ciaran moderating.

Matthew – can I get on that panel again please?
