The internet is forever changing, and it’s hard to keep up. Especially if you’re a brand trying to engage your audience, and keep them engaged. One of the best ways to build your brand, keep your audience interested, and get more traffic to your site is by understanding Search Engine Optimization, more commonly known as SEO.
Understanding SEO is not complicated. But if you continue to ignore it, you’re essentially ignoring your biggest customer, Google. Join us in a one-day intensive class on how to optimize your site.

After teaching herself CSS and HTML, Kuleen set her “sites” on mastering SEO. She took courses online, and read the two-inch thick book, Art of SEO, in her spare time.
She practiced her new SEO skills on her own site and then started helping out her blogger friends. With their encouragement (okay, with their pestering) she decided to open A Blogger’s Best Friend.
It’s important to Kuleen that you never say “I don’t know what the SEO person did on my site” when referring to her work. She’ll work with you no matter what your level of SEO knowledge to make sure you understand the services she provides.
Ten years ago, Stefanie started her social media journey as a blogger. She grew her blog, Ooph, to over one million clicks per year using social media as the primary source of traffic. Stefanie discovered along the way that what she loved most, aside from storytelling, was studying and understanding the constantly changing world of social media, strategically using it to grow her online presence and teaching others how to do the same.
Stefanie now uses everything she learned, and continues to learn, to do what she is most passionate about, teaching female entrepreneurs, both on and offline, how to create a social media plan that grows their business and creates the financial and lifestyle freedom they are seeking.
