    In today’s episode we will be looking into the different ways, you can get help with your SEO. So far in our 3-part series, I have provided you the differences between business writing (copy, content, SEO) and the knowledge to determine when you should hire an expert to help you. Now let's finish the series discussing the types of SEO experts and SEO services you can use. So let’s talk about SEO Coaches, SEO consultants and SEO services. A consistent struggle I recognize entrepreneurs go through is not asking for the right SEO help. For example, a lot of people make the mistake of asking for an SEO consultant or requesting SEO services, but really want an SEO coach. By the end of this episode, you should be able to decide which expert is beneficial to hire for your business.  Have you decided that you would like to hire an SEO expert, but not sure where to start?

    Today’s episode will be part 2 of our current 3-part series. I will be introducing crucial signs of when it is best to hire an SEO expert. Examples of SEO experts are, SEO writers or SEO coaches, which can be helpful for your business. BUT, before you decide to hire an SEO expert, you may need to pause and think about this…… SEO done right today, is not just about using a lot of keywords and writing articles/blogs. While this might generate traffic, it may not generate sales because you really don’t know if you are connecting with your business and customers. Before you can hire an SEO expert, you need to make sure that your VOICE and your BRAND is already built. Are you an entrepreneur or small business looking for SEO help? Is SEO confusing or frustrating to you, so you are now ready to hire an SEO writer or coach? Are you struggling to connect your voice to your business? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, you are on the right episode and I am here to help! In need of watching part 1 of ou

    The battle: Copy vs Content vs SEO

    30/04/2020 Duração: 18min

    Welcome to part 1 of a 3-part series!! We will be discussing the difference between a copywriter, a content writer and an SEO specialist, in this episode. This is particularly important for when you are looking to expand your team for your business. Copy, Content and SEO –  all three of these areas are extremely important, however in business we tend to focus on one area more than the other. Why does everyone seem to focus on the copywriting part of their business, and not on their content or SEO? Are you consistent with your podcast episodes, but still are not hitting your download goals? Do you write a lot of blog posts, but still no one can find it? Are you promoting your business non-stop , but your sales do not match? Copy is your sales/marketing, Content is your meat and potatoes and SEO is your secret sauce. You need all three ingredients to be successful in making this work. You do not want to be all copy and no content; all excitement, with no meat and potatoes. You also do not want to be all meat

    At a time such as this, where a lot of things are happening in the world, the chances of you burning out as a business owner/entrepreneur has increased. As a business owner and entrepreneur myself, I felt that it was extremely important to share tips on how I've managed to not fall into the burnout hamster wheel using, you guessed it ------ SEO! I want to provide helpful insight to you in this moment, as a coach and fellow business owner. Burnout can be seen as (1) feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion and/or (2) increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativism related to one’s job (World Health Organization). Our business is our job and we have to make sure that we conserve our energy, focus on our mental health and be proactive with targeting feelings of negativity towards our business.

    In this episode of the Girl Get Visible Podcast, we will be discussing ways to manage your content for SEO and how to boost your business growth. As I search through social media platforms and speak with my clients, there is a problem of really great content being lost in the ripples of the quick and “dirty” platforms. Dirty not in the sense of unclean, but in the sense of us continuously using UNSUSTAINABLE platforms as our way to engage with our audience. The reason your business cannot get the support, the traffic or make the income you want, is because we are not adding content on sustainable platforms. We create content, without strategically deciding on where to put content first, which is where we make the greatest mistake. Sustainable platforms like websites or blog posts will boost your business and increase its success. So, we should spend more time taking advantage of these platforms, then share our content for the world to consume. Are you having difficulty with growing your traffic or getting yo

    Everyone is going live on social media these days, live on Facebook, live on IG, live on Youtube. Going live is a great way to get your content out there instantly and grab a quick audience but the growing problem is after the first few days all of that good content you shared on live, is lost in the algorithms and isn’t getting in front of new audiences like you hoped. Most Facebook Marketers will tell you how to go live on Facebook, what you should go live about on Facebook, how to invite more people to your Facebook live; but they don’t talk about how to make that Facebook LIVE live longer and continue working for you. In the episode, I talk about what you can and should do to keep your most valuable content in rotation longer and get the maximum benefits for your business.
