The Art and Science behind Keyword Planning in Digital Marketing.
Keyword Planning is all about search volume, bids for PPC, density in content!
While all the above is true, but it is also an incomplete view and understanding of Keyword Planning in Digital Marketing.
To unlock the true potential of organic and paid advertising campaigns, as an SEO Consultant, Marketing Manager, Business Owner, or an Aspiring Marketer, you should embark on the quest for a holistic approach towards Keyword Planning.
This course can be an ideal companion for this journey of yours!

While most of the respected industry practitioners and academia have been bang-on in recognizing that both ‘Art’ and ‘Science’ are at play when marketers try to influence customer behavior but very little has been spoken or written about ‘Art’ and ‘Science’ in Keyword Planning.
If you are already hands-on with Keyword Planning (or aspire to do so), then it is highly likely that you perceive Digital Marketing mostly as Science (keyword search volume, competition index, bids, and the likes).
However, to become a more conscious and hence a more successful Marketer, it is necessary to acknowledge that you are dealing with both Art and Science in Keyword Planning.
This course will serve as a gentle nudge, not only for the Science but also to help you unveil and see the Art behind keyword planning more clearly.
Course Value-Adds (what this course is and what it is not):
• It is a humble attempt to throw the spotlight on a framework that will help you develop a much-needed perspective towards Digital Marketing as a whole and Keyword Planning, to be specific!
• This course is not about quick-fire tips/tricks for white-hat SEO, On-page SEO (we do talk about this, but this is not the center-stage of the course), or best-practices for SEM.
This and my upcoming courses will be designed to help you become a conscious Digital Marketer that the Industry deserves, and the one that it needs right now 🙂
