The Unscripted SEO Interview, hosted by Mark A Preston!

As a professional SEO trainer & speaker, I meet and get to know some amazing people within the world of SEO on my travels around the world. Some of the stories and journeys I've heard are truly inspirational. In The Unscripted SEO Interview series I invite people who work within the SEO industry to jump on a pre-recorded video call to ask them a few questions and see where the conversation takes us. As the name suggests, this is 100% unscripted, unrehearsed and even unedited as I believe more value and stories will be shared.
