With all the sem training courses and programs as well as sem conferences you would think that the market is saturated and there’s no room for growth. But one of the reasons I blog about sem training is because of the fresh content and information that comes out about search engine marketing. The newest in the sem training field comes from Jim Boykin and his team of Internet Marketing Ninjas and 15 hours of video.
Jim, Aaron Wall, Andy Beal, Bill Slawski, Jim Gilbert, Cameron Olthuis, Neil Patel, Shoemoney, Jill Whalen, Christine Churchill, Lee Odeen, and Todd Malicoat are unveiled as the Internet Marketing Ninjas. Now that’s a powerful Internet marketing group and they each talk about their fields of interest including SEO, PPC, social media, affiliate marketing, and more. One year access to Internet Marketing Ninjas is $2,995. Membership includes updated videos and many of the We Build Pages Tools. On Jim’s blog he says;
We’re also planning on adding a bunch of new video during 2008 by other influential internet marketing minds (we’ve already got 10 out of the top 40 most influential SEO’s in search). We’re also working on saving tool reports in each person’s control panel, as well as adding other cool features to the program, as well as we’ve got some more tools in the pipeline.
