The best way to increase your seo is via content marketing. I have been yammering on about this for years, but last night in my weekly learning class we were discussing this and it hit me as particularly relevant as one of my real estate clients mentioned she was REALLY READY to start her blog. I decided to give myself a challenge. I gave myself 15 minutes and see if I could come up with a years worth of blog topics for any real estate agent. My thought was that each would just be a list of the Top 5. Based on where you live this could be more or less. I PROMISE you - if you blog once a week for a year, your site will rank higher than it currently is now. Your will be seen as an authority in your industry and people in town will know that YOU KNOW all there is to know about where you live.read more

Over the winter on Elegant Marketplace we launched a course: A Deep Dive Into Divi. As part of the course offering we are preparing to update you on what's new with Divi 3.0 when it occurred to us, there is so much great information in the class that is still totally relevant to the 3.0 update (we are fortunate to be in the Beta testing group so we have had time to play a bit). Good news, we don't need to do a whole new curriculum, we simply need add to the existing materials. With that in mind we decided we should reopen the sale of the course. The price is reduced ($98.50) because there won't be live webinars (but you will have access to the webinars that we previously recorded). You can still ask questions AND of course you will be included on the 3.0 webinar.read more
