Growing Your Design Business Part 5: Selling SEO

Growing Your Design Business Part 5: Selling SEO

If you design and develop websites for clients, it only makes sense to offer SEO (search engine optimization) services as well. In this, our last segment in the “Growing your design business” series, we sit down with outreach consultant Kai Davis and talk about the benefits of offering SEO to your clients.

More specifically, we talk about partnering with a trusted SEO expert that you can fold into your current design business. You can then offer your clients the services and expertise of someone who knows SEO inside and out while earning some extra money in the process. Win-win!

We also answer a new listener question about the importance of having a go-to copywriter, as well as the overall importance of good copy in your portfolio website.

Hi Wes,

Love your podcast! I’ve been a listener for a couple years now and am a little embarrassed that I haven’t comment on anything yet especially since I’m writing to ask you about the Shutterstock discount code lol. I’m trying to get my account set up but the website is saying that it is an invalid code. Is there a time limit on the offering? I promise my next comment will be one of relevance to the podcast itself. :) Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Jessica
