New guy here who after stumbling across the Internet Marketing world a couple of years ago and thought I would definitely like to go down that route eventually, am finally here ready to start the journey.
I won't bang on about my own situation, but to cut a long story short I am just taking over a new small offline business and am hanging my gloves up on my old self employed scenario.
The beauty of the new business is that it will finally give me a chance to learn and put into practice the skill set of internet marketing, which as I mentioned before is something I came across a few years and immediately knew I would like to get into when given the chance.
I appreciate a big part of this site (and no doubt many you guys here reading this) make money by selling information.... My question is however, which big authorities on Internet Marketing and SEO are worth buying training/ courses from?
I see there is stuff on the likes of Lynda/ Udemy etc and Yoast for example do their own training course, are they a good starting point.
I have always done well with vocational training in my previous career and different roles in engineering but I can't imagine that would work with IM in the respect of the choice of learning provider.
I know there are gonna be people who try and either sell me a course here through the forum or perhaps say I am looking at this the wrong way by being willing to spend a lot of money on learning but my experience is what it is and I would rather spend a bit (few k maybe) on some learning with a big and well trusted player in the arena and at least get a site ranked and getting traffic first before I start trying out some more obscure stuff.
