About the Course Instructor: How I Started My SEO Writing Career
If you’re looking for a career change, a real work-from-home opportunity, or a low-cost business you can start right away, SEO copywriting fits the bill. So welcome to taking the plunge; you won’t regret it!
FYI, In case you don’t know, SEO is the acronym for search engine optimization. In this course, you’ll learn everything you need to know to become a well-paid, freelance SEO copywriter.
Note: Throughout these lessons, I use the terms SEO writing, SEO copywriting, SEO content writing, web writing and online writing interchangeably. They all refer to the same thing – writing search engine-optimized content.
Why Is This Course the Only One I'll Ever Need to Understand SEO Writing?
Well, it’s quite simple actually. This course is taught from years of first-hand experience.
I started doing SEO writing in the fall of 2007. After blogging about my success, in 2008, I started receiving requests to put together a course. I didn’t do it until 2009 because I was just too busy.
Furthermore, to be quite honest, I didn’t feel that I was fully qualified enough at the time to be teaching this type of course. But by the time I did – in the fall of 2009 with two years of experience under my belt – I felt fully qualified and confident.
I’d learned enough, written enough and dealt with enough clients that I not only felt qualified, I knew how to streamline the process for newbies entering the field – making you successful that much sooner.
