How We Teach You to Become Better Writers

  • Perform thorough content audit to identify strengths and weaknesses.

    The best place to start is for our SEO Content Consultant to do a full content audit to determine if any optimization is taking place within the content on your website. This ensures our SEO content training starts at your current skill level and builds from there. Don’t underestimate your writers – we focus on building on what is already being done well. Usually, there are several areas that are simply overlooked or not deemed as important that can give your website a significant SEO boost.

  • Develop customized SEO Content Guidelines specific to your needs.

    To improve the success of SEO and content creation we create a formal guideline package to distribute within your company. This part of SEO content training is filled with instructions and best practices on how to optimize all content that is published to your website and blog. This means that new writers can quickly come up to speed on what is expected from their content. Your existing writers also have guidelines to refer back to as needed.

  • Conduct phone and email training and consulting with writers.

    Our SEO Content Consultant will schedule training with your writers to help them understand the guidelines and provide opportunity to ask as many questions as needed. This helps build the confidence of your writers and make sure that they fully understand what is needed for solid SEO. Often times they can ask questions specific to your website – much better than entering a general query into Google and hoping the advice applies to your website.

  • Provide ongoing review and feedback as you practice SEO skills.

    As your writers learn how to integrate SEO into their skillset our SEO content consultant will review their work, provide input and pointers, and send back revisions. This method has proven to help train your writers to naturally think about SEO as they write.

  • Wrap up project or start a consulting retainer.

    There comes a time where your writers are confident in their SEO skills and can produce from start to finish optimized SEO evergreen content. This is the goal! We are happy to stay available for additional SEO content training or answer any new questions. We can jump into new projects or update SEO Content Guidelines for current best practices as the industry changes.
