Why should you consider GBPedia?

If you are a professional you probably know how important Google Business Profile (formerly Google My Business) and Local SEO are to acquire more customers and create engagement with current ones.

Not to forget the many studies and customer surveys  showing GBP/Local Search is the most profitable digital channel for local businesses.

 

To take full advantage of Google Business Profile (GBP)/Local SEO you may choose to learn everything you can about it.

However, to do so may take years of experience dealing with issues, best ways of doing something, multitude of testing,  reading thousands of articles and case studies, watching hours of videos, listening to podcasts…

 

Or you could shorten your learning curve through GBPedia. It took me

  • 15 years in experience
  • heaps of reading, watching, and listening
  • thousands spent on conferences
  • applying, trying, and testing every bit of “wisdom”, “tactics”, “shortcuts”
 

and more than 2 years creating GBPedia!

 

Expending more effort than most people think is sufficient and probably most people would look for shortcuts instead.

But I’m in for the long haul so I want to produce training that matters for people who care.

 

Specialized training like GBPpedia normally costs from high hundreds to thousands and there are good reasons why, with the time spent and quality of the material.

But Google Business Profile has a Global reach, therefore I wish that my training can help professionals around the world and that’s why the access is very affordable.

Knowledge is power!

Why choose this Training

youtube logo in a red background and a suit guy with a interrogation mark next to him

If you rely just on free Youtube videos to learn, you will come across 3 pitfalls:

  • You might learn old information, advice, tips that do not work anymore
  • You might get the wrong advice, tips from false  “gurus”
  • Wasting hours upon hours looking for the right knowledge and making sure it is the best available information
 

Consequences: The first 2 pitfalls are really dangerous as might damage your online and offline reputation, you can be severely penalised by Google/Bing/Yelp/Tripadvisor by using disallowed techniques.
The last pitfall  is the old business tenet: “Time is money”, and time away from family and friends. No support!

Online Learning Platforms with logos of Udemy, Skillshare, Lynda.com

There are many platforms and people that provide courses, but again you will come across pitfalls:

  • 95%-99% of those creating courses are not “in” for the long haul and just want to create a “passive” income stream. Just search for “passive income creating courses” in Google and Youtube to confirm.
  • You might spend money on outdated knowledge, material as the creators are “in” for the passive income to supplement their full-time job, so updates will have to wait.
  • The courses are not tailored to small local businesses as they have to be evergreen so they can appeal to the biggest audience possible, as platforms take a big commission (up to 85%) out of each sale.
  • No or close to no support, no community, remember it has  to be “passive”.
 

Consequences:  To create and maintain an effective and useful training takes thousands of hours. So you will be wasting your money on unreliable training and weak support.  Again, it can affect your business as it might damage your online and offline reputation.

The proof is in the "Pudding"!
