Individual SEO TuitionWordPress Tuition + Group SEO TuitionGroup WordPress Tuition, the prices are in London pounds, you can use a normal conversion rate to euros.

Delivery in English?

Yes, and only in English, do I speak Spanish I hear you ask? Yes, I do but not very fluently, despite the name I do come originally from the other side of Iberia and even that fabulous language I have very much underused for nearly two decades now.

When in Barcelona? 18th to the 23rd of December 2014

My first trial run will be for the week preceding Christmas, you can book me for two hour periods or more from the 18th to the 23rd of December this includes evenings up to 9.00 pm (which is practically lunch time in Spain) including the weekend, my foremost quality is flexibility so whatever suits your particular needs and lifestyle, I will be more than happy to adjust to that, what’s more I operate an almost always on support model for any questions, typing and walking comes second nature to me.

Where in Barcelona?

You tell me? In London I meet clients at their offices or at Starbucks, etc. there are a few around town in Barcelona from the centre in Placa de Catalunya to the Diagonal Mar shopping center or the other side of town L’illa Diagonal, maybe you have a favourite place, my hotel could also work, pretty central.

When are you next in Barcelona?

I expect to be back in Barcelona sometime in March for my normal business commitments. Having said that, a couple of full days in a row or any combination of my time above €1000.00 + expenses over a short period may be enough to persuade me to travel to you.

Who are your typical clients in London?

In 2014, a fabulous year I might add, I have a mixture of consulting and training clients, these range from London’s very first dating agency, a luxury brand, and luxury branding agency, a digital agency, a web design company, a surf school, a translation company a few artists, personal trainers, private tutors and consultants of various descriptions.

Why are you doing this? 

This will be my third time in Barcelona this year on business,  I enjoy meetings and consulting, but what really makes me tick is what I describe as the haha moment, this is literally what happens when some of my clients have a realisation moment with a new piece of information sloting into place in their brains, they utter haha with a smile :-)

The second reason is that being an SEO, naturally I watch the space for SEO in Barcelona and the Google SERP is just not pretty, so I fancy my chances at ranking for that pretty quickly.

What is your approach to SEO?

If you are going to ask me or any other SEO consultant just one question make sure this one is it, SEO used to be and still is in many people’s eyes about link building, this is due to the fact that most of the SEO industry was built around this misconception, if we work together you will learn that I focus on the end user and on providing  the best possible experience for them UX (user experience), as well as a technically sound website.

Finally we think and act strategically and with long term in mind, we build few strong relationships that valid you as the best in your filed.

That’s all great, I still have questions?

I’m glad to hear that, please get in touch and let me know.

10 Questions To Ask Before Designing/Developing Your Website

As a website owner, the first thing I would recommend is that you start thinking about your website as if it was your car, your home or your business premises, I’m sure you go to great lengths to ensure that everything is in your name, that you are the legal owner of those properties and only you or someone you trust have the keys to it.

Smart Thinking Bookshelf

There seems to be plenty of freelancers and companies around that are otherwise doing reasonable work in terms of design and development, using hostage customer retention tactics, which are a sure lose lose way to start a business relationship.

How Quickly Can I Expect SEO Results?

The short answer is there are no one size fits all answers to that question

In a very best case scenario you can see considerable results in six months more realistically twelve. This best case scenario is for example for a new site with a brand new domain never used before.
