If you’re own or work for a small to medium business and are trying to get your head around how to use the internet, social media, blogging and other emerging online technologies to promote your brand, build income and drive sales then you should check out Internet Marketing Masterminds.
This course will kick off on 12th of November and is being put on by fellow Aussies Alister Cameron and Ben Galt from Australis Media.
Over the last year when I’ve been approached by businesses (large and small) wanting blog consulting I’ve referred them to Alister. The reports coming back from those I’ve referred over have always been really positive. He’s helped numerous businesses take their online presence to the next level. Internet Marketing Masterminds is designed to do the same thing.
There are limited places (150) and the pricing structure is one that goes up as places begin to fill (the earliest in get the cheapest rates).
The course spans over the full year of 2009 and includes monthly webinars, group knowledgebase, discussion forum and mailing list.
The curriculum covers a lot including starting blogs, social networking, internet marketing, developing killer content, SEO, Pay Per Click Advertising, Linkbait, Crowdsourcing, tools like YouTube, Flickr and Facebook and Analytics.
Who is this for?
This course is not really designed for beginner bloggers looking to grow their blogs (although I’m sure they’d learn a lot from it too). No – Internet Marketing Masterminds is a program for businesses owners (and employees) as well as SME marketers wanting to utilize the web to grow their businesses.
Update – Where is this course?
A number of those leaving comments seem to be under the impression that this is a course happening IN Australia. It’s not – it’s a virtual course, all done online. So while it is run by Aussies it’s accessible to anyone.
Update 2 – A ‘discount’
It was just pointed out that this course is being priced in Australian dollars. This means that it’s actually quite cheap at the moment for US people (and those in other parts of the world). The exchange rate at the moment makes it almost half price as the Aussie dollar last time I checked bought 60 cents.
