Our Power Lunch sessions are short, sharp sessions where you’ll get specialised support to help you solve your business challenges. They’re full to the brim with practical information and short enough to fit into your lunch break.

SEO (search engine optimisation) is often overlooked in favour of social media, yet it can often be the best way to bring in more visits to your website. In this one-hour Key SEO Tips workshop, Ben will share some of his advice on how to build a winning SEO strategy. You’ll learn how to compare your site to the competition to give you an edge, plus many other techniques to help you get to page one on Google.


When is the Key SEO Tips session?

This session is taking place on Wednesday 13th July, 12.30-1.30pm.


What will I learn?

  • Keyword research ideas;
  • How to beat your competition;
  • Advice to make your website faster;
  • Practical SEO techniques;
  • How to measure and assess your website.


Who’s delivering this session?

Staying Covid-19 safe

What do people think?

Ben provided helpful and easy-to-follow advice. The latter is very important for me! He is clearly very knowledgeable.

Ben was really engaging, and ran a fun and informative session around e-mail marketing. I left feeling motivated and positive with lots of ideas whirring around my mind! I’ve already actioned a couple of them. Thanks Ben.
