Ready to attract high-probability prospects who have completed their research and are keen on purchasing from you?
Think about what you can accomplish when you are serving a “hot” audience and not burning time with tire kickers.
Wait…What does my “hot” audience have to do with a simple and sustainable SEO system? Well, the Create a Simple & Sustainable SEO System course is about search engine optimization (SEO). We apply SEO techniques to our websites in order to gain visibility in the search engines so that we increase traffic to our websites.
We want to increase traffic because we believe that the more people that visit our websites will result in an increase in the number who buy. This is a commonly accepted idea, and, we have seen it in practice at our brick-and-mortar malls.
The focus of Create a Simple & Sustainable SEO System is to teach you how to use SEO techniques to attract your “hot” audience—not just increase traffic in general—but increase traffic in a highly-targeted way that leads to a positive impact to your bottom line.
We call this audience our high-probability prospects—and—you’ll hear that term a lot throughout the SEO lessons. That is our goal. Not to learn to increase website traffic in general, but, to learn how to increase website traffic of our most-desired audience, our high-probability prospects.
Is this SEO course for you?
This SEO course is appropriate for content writers, copywriters, bloggers, website owners, webmasters, business professionals… Basically, everyone writing content who wants to earn a better payoff for that effort.
I often joke and say, “Just like mom told you when you were a toddler, Use Your Words.” In this SEO course you’ll learn how to improve your placement in the search results pages (SERPs) by “using your words”. A better SERP position earns you greater visibility by your high-probability prospects.
This SEO course covers what is referred to in the industry as “on-page SEO”; that is, updating the content and meta data on our web pages using SEO techniques.
Why would you want to add SEO to the web page content you spent so much time composing? Here’s what Google has to say (as recently as July 11, 2020) about the Relevance of Webpages. (In this section, Google is explaining how it finds relevant matches when a search term has been entered.)
Create a Simple & Sustainable SEO System is for you if you can create list of words that describe who you are and what you do, and, then follow the guidelines of where to use those words.
The SEO process presented in the course is not difficult work, but, there are lot of places where your words can be used. So, your challenge becomes determining how you want to fit this “SEO for success” formula into your mode of operation so that you are consistently earning higher ranks in the search engines.

Not only are the concepts and techniques transferable to your social media—but—they can be repeated and applied to:
- your other websites,
