โ€‹Freddie Chatt has condensed his decade of SEO knowledge into a super-actionable online course called Ecommerce SEO Bootcamp (for USD$150) that will teach you the exact steps for an online store to make SEO a success.

On February 6, 2023, I will randomly choose the 3 winners among those who are subscribed and have referred at least 2 subscribers between today January 7, 2024 and February 5, 2024.

I'll announce the winners over here in SEOFOMO, social media, and will get in touch via email with instructions to follow.

Please, don't try to cheat by sending fake referrals. I will identify and won't take into consideration not real "human" subscribers. I reserve the right to block those who I find cheating.
