questions

Ironically, FAQ might sound more like the word you utter when you’ve been trying to work on SEO yourself ;), but this page is actually where you’ll find all the answers you need about working with me to get you seen, shining and sold out.

One of the biggest blocks people have around SEO is that it’s super technical, but Rule #1 for visibility is to show up for your wonderful self – as such there is  no such thing as a silly questions round here. If there’s a question that’s not answered, please feel free to pop me a DM over on Instagram, and I’ll get back right back to you.

One way or another you can find the answers here

knowing me, knowing you

aha!

WHY DO YOU LOVE TO NAME INANIMATE OBJECTS?

The question, dear friends, is why don’t you? They’re all important markers of my brand identity, and are key players in me unapologetically showing up for my brand, so people do feel connected to them (plus, you try looking Gladys in the eye/follicle and telling her she’s not a Gladys.)

WHAT IS VISIBILITY COACHING?

Visibility coaching is what I do around here! My coaching focuses on visibility, which is the act of showing up. Literally, it’s making sure you’re visible to your dream clients when they’re searching, and being so irresistible that when they find you, they immediately want to book you. Simple! You can check out how to work with me here.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING THIS?

I started the business in 2012, and I’ve been full time since 2015. You can read all about my business story told mainly in the form of GIFs (but of course) right here

I’VE HEARD YOU TALK ABOUT MEDITATION OVER ON INSTAGRAM A LOT, WHERE CAN I FIND OUT MORE?
YOU ALWAYS SEEM SO POSITIVE, HOW DO YOU KEEP IT UP?

By looking after myself! You might not expect self-care tips from an SEO expert (though I’m not your average SEO expert!) but I believe one of the key things for visibility is looking after yourself, so that you’re ready to show up fully. I talk more about that here.

YOU’RE A BIT GLAM FOR AN SEO EXPERT!

I know, right? Thank you!

HOW CAN I STALK YOU SOME MORE?

Well, I’m flattered!

IT’S IMPORTANT TO ME TO KNOW WHAT YOUR VALUES ARE IF I AM TO HIRE YOU, CAN YOU TELL ME MORE?

I also ensure that I give back to causes who support and champion those who are marginalised. I pay for Ecologi to pay off my carbon footprint, and shop at zero waste stores as much as possible.

about seo

WHAT IS SEO?

SEO stands for search engine optimisation, but I like to call it ‘Seeking Exciting Opportunities’ – because, real talk, what’s more exciting than getting paid to do what you love by people who want to pay you to do it?

Search engines are sites like Google, Bing but also any site that has a search box where you have a presence like social media platforms, Etsy and Amazon. You can read more about that here.

WHY SHOULD I LEARN TO DO SEO MYSELF? I AM A BUSY PERSON!

Good question! SEO is an adaptive thing – it doesn’t work in the same way it did 5 years ago, or 10 years ago, and it wasn’t even really a thing 15 years ago (not to make you feel old, or anything.) I teach you the strategies beneath as well as the top-level tactics chat, to make sure you’re forever on top of these changes for your specific business, and that you don’t fall behind. Check out my freebie – 7 things you didn’t know about visibility to start off 

I FEEL OVERWHELMED, WHERE DO I START?

Firstly, get yourself a cuppa (or a glass of something stronger, no judgement here!) And then pop this episode of my podcast, The High Vis Podcast, on, all about building a strong business foundation. This is the key to no more wasted time, and allows you to put into practice all the things you need to start seeing results

HOW QUICKLY CAN I GET TO PAGE ONE OF GOOGLE?

My approach is to teach you the sustainable strategy that gets you to page one quickly, and then keeps you there for as long as you want…so I hope that’s ok 😉 Download this freebie – How to tell Google you exist to start you off

WHERE SHOULD I START WITH GETTING FOUND?

The good news is – right here, and you’re ride on time! This guide on how to tell google you exist will show you where you should start with getting found – welcome, welcome.

HOW DO I KNOW WHAT MY KEYWORDS ARE?

Your keywords are what your target clients are typing into search engines to find you. We all want to get to page one of google, but we need to know page one for what! (That’s like the 2020 business owners’ edition of “Turn Down For What”). It’s important to define your niche, discover the right phrases that your audience are using and then use those in the right ways on your website. I’ll teach you how to do exactly this as part of our work together. Here’s where you can learn more about “what are my keywords?”

HOW IMPORTANT IS IT TO TAG IMAGES ON MY WEBSITE?

In one word: very! It’s a really good way of boosting your SEO.
