Frequently Asked Questions
What is SEO?
SEO stands for “Search Engine Optimization.” Simply put, it’s the art of optimizing your website so it’s easy for your dream customers to find your website through Google.
For example, if you are a dog trainer in Philadelphia and you have a website for your business, you would want to ideally be one of the top results in Google whenever someone searches, “Philly Dog Trainer.”
This e-course walks you through how to set up your website so that you’re much more likely to show up high in Google’s results for search terms that describe your business.
How long is the course? How much time will it take to implement everything taught in the course?
The course includes about seven hours worth of video content. Since this is the first launch, it’s tough to say exactly how long it will take to implement. And, of course, it depends on the size of your existing website (how many pages, images, and blog posts you currently have).
If you were really powering through it, I think the average small business owner could get it done in 10–12 hours if you stay focused and set limits on things like the amount of time you research your keywords. Realistically, you'd probably want to spread that out over two or three weeks.
Do I need to be technically savvy, or know how to code?
If you’re pretty comfortable with updating content on your Squarespace website, you’re good to go. No coding knowledge needed.
Would this course be useful to me if I don’t use Squarespace?
It’s tough to answer this question without sounding biased, but I do genuinely think that — for $249 — an SEO novice would definitely get their money’s worth by investing in this course, even if they don’t use Squarespace. All of the core concepts would be applicable no matter what platform you use for your website. And I think it’d be pretty straightforward for, say, Wordpress users to figure out how to take the action steps and apply them to their own sites.
With that being said, I do want to be transparent about the fact that the Squarespace Implementation module walks through exactly how to make back end updates to your site in Squarespace’s settings, and I won’t be providing walk-throughs on any other platform.
Does the course cover SEO for e-commerce?
I do not specifically walk through product listings in the course, however, many of the core concepts will apply to e-commerce. For example, the whole Keyword Research module would apply to products — and you’ll have a great overall idea of how to implement those keywords.
Why would I pay for a course when there is so much information about SEO for free online?
I agree — there is a TON of free information out there about SEO. The problem is, it’s tough to decipher what is legitimate. And where to begin. And what’s actually worth your time. One of the greatest values I'm providing in this course is the distillation of a huge amount of reputable information into simple, easy-to-understand, actionable steps. I gotta say, if you value your time — $249 is a steal! For real.
Do you have an affiliate program for referrals to this course?
Not at this time.
Will I get lifetime access to this course?
You betcha! Enrollment is open from January 24 – 30, and the lessons will be released on Monday, February 4. At that point, you’ll have lifetime access.
Is this course guided or self-paced?
Students can choose to follow along with the 3-week challenge, or they can complete it at their own pace. Whenever, forever.
The 3-week challenge will be from February 4 – 22. It includes recommended dates for completing lessons and assignments.
Is there any kind of online community that goes along with this course?
Yes! All students will be welcome to join the private Facebook group for added accountability and support.
I am hosting a 3-week challenge to complete the course between February 4 & 22. During those 3 weeks, I’ll pop into the group every weekday to answer questions. I may even do some live Q&As if you’re interested — especially since this is the first time I’m launching this course!
Lastly, I’ll also post accountability prompts during the 3-week challenge. I’m geeking out a little bit about some some strategic ideas I have for how to use the Facebook group to give you all a boost!
Do you offer refunds?
Nope. Because you'll be receiving access to all content up front, all sales are final and non-refundable. If you have any other questions on if this course is the right fit for you, feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org before purchasing!
Can I just pay you to do my SEO for me?
Nah, I’m not offering that service at that time. But if you purchase the course and establish your own keywords, you could hire a virtual assistant to watch the rest of the course and implement a lot of the work for you!
Do you offer any type of ongoing support?
I plan to be active in the private SEO for Squarespace Facebook group for three weeks (February 4 – 22). You can ask questions in there as you go through the course, and I’ll be happy to do my best to answer them! Because this is the first time I’m launching this course, I’ll be more hands-on than ever because it’s important to me to make sure my students have a great experience.
