Just wanted to let you know that we still have openings for the April Website Marketing Workshops. While I know March has just begun, April will be upon us very quickly and they're filling up fast. Remember, these are different from our usual SEO Training Classes because these are half-day workshops, each focused on a particular aspect of marketing your website. If you've already got a good handle on SEO basics, these workshops are exactly what you need to take your website to the next level. And in this rough economic climate, can you really afford to keep your site at the same old level?
