What does ClickMinded do?
ClickMinded is an online digital marketing resource. They have courses in search engine optimization (SEO), paid advertising, content, email, and social media marketing, sales funnels, Google Analytics, and SOP library. Tommy Griffith, the creator of the program, built a curriculum based on his experiences and insights as an SEO manager at Airbnb and PayPal.
Self-paced, each course takes 3-6 hours to complete. All courses come with unlimited lifetime access and free updates, so students can keep up on the latest marketing trends. Students learn through videos, downloadable PowerPoint lectures, and quizzes. The experience-driven content comes with step-by-step instructions on how marketers can implement the strategies on their own projects. In addition, ClickMinded offers free resources, such as an introductory course, blog posts, and strategy guides, with additional tips and suggestions for increasing internet traffic and sales.
Students in the program do not receive 1-on-1 support from an instructor and there is no job search guidance. Those who successfully complete the course and pass the exams earn a certificate of completion, which they can add to their LinkedIn profiles and marketing portfolios.
