So the big question is this: How are creative entrepreneurs like us, who don’t have a huge brand or following, who are spending time away from friends and family to grow our business… How do we use SEO in a way that gets our products, services, and things we believe in out to the world? That is …
Here we go!
I wish more people understood the power and nuance of SEO.
I’m using my 10 years of experience as a classroom teacher to break down everything I know so that you can use it to radically change your business, family, and life.
Are you ready?
SEO for the Rest of Us
One of the reasons that I love SEO is that, in our industry, you have to earn your reputation. You have to put in the time, and the work. And it's not easy.
It isn't easy work, but it's what I do.
SEO or "search engine optimization" isn't some sort of mythical process. In fact, I pride myself on being able to leverage my ten years as an educator (I still teach digital marketing, SEO, and analytics at the University of Chicago every semester) to teach exactly what I'm doing in a fully transparent way.
And that's because my business has never been about rankings or keywords, it's been about community.
It's been about business.
It's been about people like you.
By starting an ambitious project like this, I can give you my best, no matter where you're at in your business and career.
In SEO for the Rest of Us, I'm going to do everything I can to support the future of your business. Honestly, supporting businesses and families in this way is some of the most meaningful work I've ever done.
You, reading this, matter to me, and I hope the feeling is mutual.
My absolute best SEO advice:
On the SEO for the Rest of Us blog, I'm holding nothing back, giving you every bit of insight that I have that makes me, my students, and my clients successful.
