Best Resources To Learn SEO For Small Businesses
I received an email very recently asking “what are the best resources to start learning SEO” so I wanted to record a training video sharing with you the best resources to get started in my opinion.
These resources are intended for those looking to get started, those who want to learn the basics of SEO and get up to speed so you don’t have to rely on very expensive agencies and crucially so people out there cannot scare or intimidate you by making SEO sound really scare.
The resources I speak about and recommend are:
In addition I discuss my own free training resources, I have my Agency blog where I share industry news and updates.
I also have a dedicated training academy for small businesses who want to learn SEO, if you like to learn via watching videos then my academy may be really interesting for you and I encourage you to check it out.
If you do have any questions or comments on this video let me know just below. Otherwise best of luck learning SEO and growing your small business yourself.

Many small businesses can be started at a low cost and on a part-time basis, while a person continues a regular job with an employer or provides care for family members in the home. In developing countries, many small businesses are sole-proprietor operations such as selling produce at a market stall or preparing hot food to sell on the street, that provide a small income.
The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) was created in 1953 as an independent agency of the federal government to aid, counsel, assist and protect the interests of small business concerns, to preserve free competitive enterprise and to maintain and strengthen the overall economy of our nation.

UVU: Business Resource Center Ribbon Cutting
Utah Gov. Gary Herbert attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Utah Valley University’s new Business Resource Center with UVU President Matthew S. Holland and more than 150 area business, government, education and community leaders on Jan. 6.
UVU’s Business Resource Center will serve as a one-stop-shop for entrepreneurs and businesses in Utah, Summit and Wasatch counties, offering a variety of services that capitalize on the center’s access to the numerous resources, programs and activities provided by UVU faculty, staff and students. As a business incubator, the center will spur Utah’s economic and business development by helping to create new enterprises, grow existing companies and produce new jobs.
The center will be not only a business development incubator to bolster UVU’s substantial economic impact to the state, but also to serve as a prime resource for individuals and entities throughout the region whose viable ideas, products and technology innovation can stimulate the state’s economy.
“I appreciate that fact that this Business Resource Center, that in order to help the entrepreneur, that 70 percent of the space here is going to be dedicated to start-ups, to incubator-type businesses, to help start them and accelerate them, and give them every opportunity, as we have fledgling new businesses,” said Gov. Herbert. “I kind of picture seeds placed in the soil that make sure that they’ll be able to sprout and grow. And it will receive a crop at the appropriate time.”
Housed within UVU’s center are a wide array of entrepreneurial resources and business startup services. They include an economic development office, a technology commercialization office under the direction of Kent Millington, the state’s largest Small Business Development Center, representatives from the Utah Science Technology Research (USTAR) initiative and the nationally ranked Manufacturing Extension Partnership. UVU’s Woodbury School of Business and Entrepreneurship Institute will also assist the BRC in its efforts to create businesses and jobs.
“I do want to acknowledge that so much of the stage we’re enjoying here has been set by our great governor,” said President Holland. “From the beginning, Gov. Herbert has made clear that two of his highest priorities are education and the economy and job creation. And so as I came into office, I listened to his leadership and have been inspired by that. And I thought that we needed to respond to that. And so governor, part of what we’re doing here today is at your call to make education the best that it can be and for everyone do their part with respect to job creation and economic development. We’ve seen some opportunities to do that.”
Holland said that the BRC is crucial to economic development and will house many of the programs and initiatives connected to the University’s business engagement strategy. The business engagement strategy led to the creation of a technology commercialization office under director Kent Millington under whom at least four new patents for marketable technologies have already been filed with the pipeline filling rapidly. UVU has also hired a new director of its Entrepreneurial Institute, is leading the state in its K-16 collaboration efforts, has continued its dialogue with members of the business strategy group and the business community and has been the convening institute for the Utah Cluster Acceleration Partnership in digital media.
Steve Roy, UVU’s associate vice president for economic development, said the BRC’s services, based on proven, cutting-edge methodologies and processes, will be expanded as the center develops to accommodate greater clients’ needs. The center’s providers and partners will begin full services this month.
In addition to its role as a business incubator, the center will also increase student involvement in the region’s economic development through engaged learning opportunities, including research projects and activities that will directly benefit individuals and businesses the BRC serves, Roy said.
The UVU Business Resource Center is located at 815 W. 1250 South, in Orem, near Walmart.

On the surface, the life of the self-employed entrepreneur appears very glamorous. After all, they get to be their own boss and do whatever they want. Working in pj’s is fun and their whole life is carefree and easy.
But that is an illusion. The reality of entrepreneurship is far different.
Entrepreneurs face challenges and obstacles every day that would make the week willed crumble. In fact, many of the difficulties entrepreneurs face they never even talk about.
As a result, most people are unaware of them. This only serves to perpetuate the image the majority of the public believe. In an effort to share the truth, here are 5 difficulties entrepreneurs don’t talk about.
One of the difficulties entrepreneurs don’t talk about is how extremely hard they work to make it. Long days can be anywhere from 12 hours to 20 depending on work flows, volumes, and other influences. Sometimes they even work all-nighters just to keep their heads above water.
As you may have guess this can leave entrepreneurs exhausted and worn thin. If not in good health before starting their own business some could even succumb to illnesses.
In addition to the hard work, stress, and long hours to face there is also tight finances. This is another of the difficulties entrepreneurs don’t talk about.
After completing work for a customer and sending an invoice they must wait for payment. It is not uncommon for that delay to be at least two weeks and maybe longer. Of course there are some clients who stiff them and never pay at all.
But most entrepreneurs don’t tell you this. Instead they grin and bear it all, often working that much harder to make enough to keep their bills paid. Some eventually get ahead and even make very nice incomes but not without a lot of sacrifice.
Another of the difficulties entrepreneurs don’t talk about is having very little time off. This can create a lot of stress for bot them and their families. Often partners or spouses must work harder to in order to fill in the gaps.
Some family gatherings, birthdays, or sporting events get missed when schedules conflict. Kids and spouses can feel ignored, neglected, and unimportant.
Not many entrepreneurs own up to a lack of knowledge. However, it may be another of the difficulties entrepreneurs don’t talk about but should.
They may lack the skills to set up their own website or do their own marketing. Although an immediate solution would be to hire someone to help some don’t have the funds to do that.
The alternative for those with tight finances is to learn it themselves. Regrettably, this may be a contributing factor to the longs hours entrepreneurs work.
A fear of failure is a difficulty entrepreneurs don’t often talk about. Stress, lack of sleep, and other factors can play up those fears and make them seem bigger.
If their fears overcome them they may feel like throwing in the towel and quitting. If they have a good support system, though, they can get past those feelings of self-doubt.
Although being an entrepreneur does seem like a fun and easy job, it isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. There are many difficulties entrepreneurs don’t often talk about.
