Published on

Do you want people to find you on Google?
Do you want to learn what SEO means & how easy it is to do?
Do you want to understand why participating in Twitter & Facebook & YouTube is important for your business or blog?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you will enjoy hearing from Kristin Rohan (Founder of SassySEO.com) how Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) & Social Media can drive traffic to your site, develop better relationships with your visitors, and help them understand and value what you offer.

With over a trillion web pages existing and more than 250,000 new pages being created daily, you want your community & fans to easily find and contact you. You want them to interact with your site / blog and have a reason to come back – whether to buy / engage, learn more about you, or find helpful resources.

Think about these facts:

MediaMatrix reports that over 85% of people on the Internet use search engines.
According to Marketing Sherpa: 30% of high quality leads and 37% of high quantity leads come from Search Engine Optimisation.
A survey from Forrester Research focusing on online retailers states 70% of the retailers see SEO as being the most effective way to increase customers.
According to SXSW, 40% of Google results are now “Social Search” results – meaning content picked up from places like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and Social Media are critical to your site’s success and an important part of your overall strategy–a strategy that is based around creating quality content, building and participating in your community.

Kristin will share easy tips to help:

Search Engines Find You
Search Engines Rank You
Prospects Find You
Customers & Prospects Value You
