SEO IS A GIANT PAIN IN THE BUM, RIGHT?
We’d all love to believe the ‘if we build it they will come’ myth, but I’m sorry to tell you, it just ain’t true!
If you really want humans to find your awesome business, you’ve got to push it right to the top in the organic search results.
And to do this you need SEO.
But SEO is impossible to learn. Right? Not only is it stuffed full of technical gobbledygook, it changes every five minutes. And the so-called SEO experts never seem to agree.
Don’t worry. I believe ANYONE can learn the basics of Search Engine Optimisation, which is why I created The Recipe for SEO Success Course.
This 8-module SEO Coaching Course shows you my tried and tested SEO tactics that can deliver higher rankings, more traffic and more conversions.
It’s a practical, easy to understand SEO Course that gives you the confidence to manage your own SEO. Without the need for expensive experts.
You could pay around $2000 a month for quality SEO services,
or you could learn to DIY.

MY SEO SUCCESS STORY
When I happily found myself ‘with child’ more than eight years ago, I realised I could either stay in the agency world and never see my son, or give it all up.
As a contractor I suddenly found myself five months pregnant, out of a job, and with no maternity leave pay. Eeeep!
But then I had an idea.
Why not set myself up as a copywriter?
My husband had just set up his own business with my help, and so I thought, “Hey, why not me?”
I built myself a little WordPress website, and waited for the work to flood in. There was just one problem, or rather about 20,000 of them. When I typed ‘copywriter’ into Google, oodles and oodles of other copywriters appeared.
How could I:
- Make my website appear at the top of the rankings?
- Blast my competitors out of the Google ocean?
- Get willing customers to visit my site and buy my services?
The only way to boost my business was to get my head around the dark art of Search Engine Optimisation. So I did.
I’m in the top three for 114 terms, and recently ranked number one for the term ‘Copywriter’ on Google.com.au. (If you’re not impressed then you should be. It’s bloody hard to rank well for a single term.)
And I did it all:
- With little (or no) budget and no outside help
- While being the primary breadwinner in our family and having to spend most of my time earning money
- As a sleep-deprived mum with a toddler to care for, a dog to walk, a house to clean, meals to cook, and a husband to occasionally grunt at
(I even found a little ‘me’ time along the way to run a marathon and publish a book or two.)
And I realised that if I can do it, so can anyone else.
Since then I’ve helped big corporates and many small businesses win the SEO war. I’ve written SEO-friendly copy, created engaging content, technically audited a few hundred websites, and run heaps of training workshops. I’ve survived website hacks, damaging reviews from competitors, algorithm updates, writer’s block, negative SEO campaigns and more.
Which means I’m perfectly placed to tell you all my SEO secrets. So let’s get started.
