GBP (ex GMB) and Local SEO is getting more challenging, not only more and more businesses are optimizing their GBP listings and their websites for local search, they have an increasing choice of professionals. 

For good reason, GBP and Local SEO are now “mandatory” marketing/sales channels for businesses and it’s lucrative ( I know, I ran an agency for 9 years and I have been in this field since 2007!).

 

You need a competitive edge! Knowing is your best competitive edge: how to solve issues; create, optimize & manage GBP profiles; and most importantly, keep up to date with the latest optimizations, features, tips.

 

I lost count of how many clients I got because of bad or uninformed professionals giving bad advice or making a mess of businesses’ Google Business Profiles and Local SEO. 

 

For you to be the best and keep the clients happy, you need to know, and for that, you need to learn from others (articles, books, videos, webinars, etc) or through mistakes/experience. On top of that, you need to be kept updated with the latest optimizations, features, and issues. 

But where is the time to do those things, get more clients and manage the current workload.

 

That is why GBPedia is great, in one place you will find the knowledge you need (training course & guide) and be kept up to date with the latest. 

So you can stop wasting time and money going to conferences and webinars to hear the same information most of the time, wasting time searching on specialist websites/Twitter/Facebook/Forums for the latest updates, news, optimizations, or how to resolve an issue.

You can read more about me here, but in summary, I love teaching and learning. And running a successful agency, my time was severely reduced to do those things I love and after some personal events, I decided I need to change and I had the idea of creating GBPedia.

 

So I sold my agency in 2019 and took over 2 years to create these valuable resources.

 

GBPedia is the result of:

  • 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 I promise that I will keep learning, testing, and providing it to you through GBPedia.

 

 I want you to have the best knowledge, the latest tips, news/updates, and resources in one place, something you will not find anywhere else. 

I’m in for the long haul so I created and keep creating resources that matter for people who are serious about GBP and Local SEO.

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"!
