The minimum maintenance, maximum results guide to putting your traffic & sales on autopilot.
The 80/20 of SEO for Creators & Entrepreneurs
SEO promises passive recurring traffic and revenue. But the industry makes it seem like a horribly complex mix of art and science.
SEO is not that complicated. It’s actually extremely simple if you know the few things to focus on, and the 80%+ of things to completely ignore.
I’ve worked in SEO for over 7 years, built a 7-figure SEO agency, and my entire life is paid for by the SEO traffic my sites passively generate.
I know exactly which levers you can pull as a busy solopreneur to get the maximum results with your limited time, and this course is where I share that knowledge.
