Free Online Training Initiative from Search Engine College

SEC-smiley-150x178Some of you might remember that last year, Search Engine College launched a free search engine marketing training initiative for charities and not-for-profit organizations worldwide.

The initiative provides 25 charities or not-for-profit organizations per year the opportunity to learn search marketing skills at no cost, to help them make the most of their limited marketing budgets.

Well the idea launched with more of a whimper than a bang, so today we’ve distributed an official Press Release to try and drum up more publicity.

If you know of a charity or not-for-profit that might benefit from free online marketing training, please direct them to our release, encourage them to get in touch, and/or spread the word by linking to this post.
