I am new to this but tried to get my hands on any information I could gather on the topic of Local SEO. When I came across your academy by chance I couldn't get enough of it. Top notch courses with some of the most brilliant presenters. I feel more confident than ever about any subject at hand after attending the course.

I had a very positive experience with Brightlocal Academy! I enjoyed giving real-time instructions on how to apply what I was learning to an actual client of mine. I look forward to taking additional courses in the future!

BrightLocal Academy is quite possibly the single most useful resource for learning about local SEO there is.

We Utilize BrightLocal Academy across our marketing team. Our Chief Marketing Officer sometimes schedules us training in BrightLocal Academy and we'll then present on the training to our team, so we can learn more and implement it in the companies that we manage.
