What Startup Founders Need to Know about SEO
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

What you’re in for is a practical exploration of why SEO is critical to startups and founders and how your success or failure as a new venture (every new venture) is very dependant on Search. 

Not the usual how to SEO but how search engines can make the difference between your getting funded or not.  Our goal: helping everyone realize that SEO isn’t something you can do, and perhaps should, to acquire customers, but that it’s something that your startup must live, breath, and how.

Worth your time? Paul spoke with over 200 founders the last time this talk was held.  Search matters - here's what matters to founders.
