We know what’s going on behind the scenes of your lovely styled instagram shots:
You have a beautiful new site, gorgeous branding, and a collection of hella good content that you write on the regular…but no one other than your mom knows that you exist.
Wouldn’t it be nice to change that?
- To get traffic from people begging you to write more, offer more?
- Having people email you, asking you to release your thing because they’ve fallen in love with your brand and just have to have more of it?
- Getting requests for brand partnerships from things you spend your money on anyway?
It CAN happen.
And SEO is the first step to getting there. Because there is no shortage of people who need what you have to offer— there’s just a shortage of people who know it exists.
And SEO is the ticket to closing that gap.
But does SEO intimidate you?
Is it one of those things that you know you *should* be doing for your business, but don’t know how to get started?
I think of it like taxes…it’s a seemingly complicated process, but without an annual April 15 deadline, would probably get put off…forever.
Think about it:
How long have you been in business? 1 year, 2 years, 5 years? And you’ve known this whole time that SEO is great for you, but what have you actually done on it? Installed Yoast, maybe? Googled “how to get great SEO” a few times, but gotten overwhelmed by the massively long articles on it?
We’ve been there. And it doesn’t have to stay this way.
Usually the thing we need to do (but SO don’t want to do) only takes a few minutes once we get started. But the time lost in procrastinating on it?
Hours and hours of lost time.
(Please tell us we’re not the only ones! #FoldingLaundry #DoingtheDishes #FilingTaxes).
It doesn’t have to be like this.
SEO is your friend. It can be a loyal friend.
Get this into your head: SEO will stand by your side if you just give it a little bit of love and attention.
It’s like getting a puppy: yes, it takes some work up front. Boy, does it take some work when they’re so little and energetic and into everything!
But once you invest some time and attention into that little adorable creature? It’ll love you forever. Sure, you still have to feed it daily, take it on walks, and scoop that poop—BUT—the long-term rewards are SO worth it.
Treat your SEO like an energetic puppy that needs some attention from you now, but will be loyal to you forever.
With some regular attention to things like blogging, guest posting, and backlinks, SEO will reward you with:
- Boosts in overall rankings
- Traffic from people who are warm leads to your offerings & products
- A business built on inquiries, not just referrals
- Opportunities you might never have had without SEO, all because the right people are finding you
- A deep sigh of relief from knowing that you’re taking good care of your business’s long-term health.
Wouldn’t that be nice to have? Can you IMAGINE what life would be like a year from now if you had these advantages on your side?
I know the daily struggle of checking your inbox for inquiries from clients…and instead getting spammy emails from people you don’t want to hear from.
