If you want to start a side hustle as a digital marketing & SEO consultant, all you need is training and one client.
Find one client, and we’ve got the rest covered.
I’ll be honest. Finding client #1 is the most difficult. But one client might be all you need because you can use the great relationship with your client to grow a referral tree.
We now offer additional online SEO training courses to help you become a full-stack digital marketing & SEO consultant. Aspiring consultants who complete our online courses are trained in four core SEO services:
- SEO website audit,
- keyword research,
- content audit, and
- content marketing.
To be a full-stack digital marketing & SEO consultant, you provide your clients with superior customer service. You offer any or all of the core SEO services mentioned above. You may even offer additional services within your skill set, such as freelance writing or web design.
Our online training courses teach you SEO step by step so that you become proficient in digital marketing.
Why We Created Online SEO Training Courses
First, any motivated individual can learn SEO. Previous experience or education in marketing is not required. In fact, the principles of SEO are the same across the world, so it is a skillset that crosses borders (unlike many other professions).
Second, being able to help small businesses grow is incredibly rewarding work. We can’t understate how amazing it feels helping small businesses with marketing their businesses online. Millions of small businesses around the world need help with their websites and SEO proves to be one of the most useful strategies a business can invest in.
Third, we know too many people work 9 to 5 jobs that they don’t enjoy. We know even more people who work in jobs that don’t pay well. Many of our friends and relatives end their work days exhausted and unfulfilled. Others we know continue working in careers they’re no longer interested in simply because they don’t know what else to do.
Fourth, marketing firms charge a lot of money for SEO, often hundreds of dollars per hour. While these marketing firms have experience in SEO, small businesses can’t (or don’t) want to pay these high fees. Training digital marketing & SEO consultants to be able to provide the same services means that SEO can be an affordable investment for small businesses.

Our step-by-step instructions in both video and written formats provide everything you need to learn these fundamental SEO services.
How Do I Start a Side Hustle or Side Business?
Our online training courses don’t stop at SEO. You’ll have access to resources you need to start a side hustle. You’ll also receive tips on how to find clients and pitch email templates you can use to reach out to your potential clients. Additionally, we provide the documents you can use to complete work for your clients.
Before you begin a side hustle or side business, we recommend establishing some goals for your side hustle. Consider setting SMART goals for your side hustle with respect to how much time you want to invest in your side hustle and how much money you want to make. Setting goals will help ensure you maintain focus. Having a side hustle can be a challenge in terms of time management, so goal setting is critical to ensure that you make progress without sacrificing balance.
Starting a side hustle in SEO is as easy as finding one client. Everything else you need is contained within our online courses.
