How Can You Test The Water With GMB If You’re A Beginner?

In episode 221 of Semantic Mastery’s weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked how to test the water with GMB as a beginner.

The exact question was:

Can you go over GMB basics? I’m interested in getting started with one local GMB to see how it’s done, so I think I could start with MGYB for getting it verified, right? But after that, what should I do? I know there’s courses on this, but I’d like to start with the basics and “”test the water”” to see how it’s done before moving forward.
