I can’t quite believe it, but on this day four years ago, Search Engine College was launched.
The staff meeting that first spawned the idea for SEC seems like a lifetime ago now, but I’m consistently amazed at the growth we’ve undergone month after month, year after year.
Last month saw the highest level of student enrollments to date and it looks like this month is set to beat that record. As of last month, we have enrolled over 500 students from 33 different countries! That’s quite an achievement for a small business and I’m very proud today.
On behalf of our staff and tutors, I want to take this opportunity to thank every single one of our students, not only for choosing us as their training provider, but for providing excellent feedback and support as we have developed the business model and grown as educators. It’s inspiring to hear regularly from so many graduates who have used their training to advance their careers in search. I’d also like to thank the search marketing community for embracing us so readily and promoting our training programs via social media networks, blogs, forums and word of mouth. It means a great deal to us.
Finally (at the risk of this sounding like an Academy Award acceptance speech), a huge appreciative thanks must go to our remarkable and dedicated tutors, particularly Kim, Karon and Bob who have been especially patient during our growing pains – thank you, you’re wonderful.
Happy Birthday Search Engine College!
