How to win at SEO with REALLY REALLY Good Content — John Bonini (Databox / Some Good Content
Have you ever gone back to visit the neighborhood you grew up in? It was different, wasn’t it? Even if it hadn’t changed in all those years, it still wasn’t *quite* how you remembered it. That’s… kinda what we’re going to explore in this week’s show. In case you’re new here, hey I’m Brendan, I love love love finding people who can teach us something new about SEO. Last week’s episode was with Gabby Miele, talking about building links without being a spammer. We explored new ways to think about SEO by talking to email marketers like Val Geisler and Chase Dimond. In this week’s show, we’re diving into a topic that’s been talked about a million (maybe a billion at this point), times before. It’s the neighborhood… most of us… grew up in. Content. Writing things online. But, for me and… maybe for you. It’s different now. And, I don’t think I realized just how different until today’s guest joined me for a conversation that would turn out to be an absolute masterclass in creating content that matters. So, let’s go take a walk through our old neighborhood, reminisce a little, and see what’s changed. Please welcome a fellow dad of 3 kids under 5, founder of Some Good Content, director of marketing at Databox and my friend, John Bonini. Outro: So as you heard John and I were about to dive deep into his search motivation framework, which is a spectacular companion to what you’ll already find in the SEO for the Rest of Us community membership area. John’s masterclass, as well as a master class taught by EVERY SINGLE ONE of our guests is right there, inside the membership area. You can join the community and get that INSTANTLY by going to seofortherestofus.org/community OR just click open the episode details on your podcast player and click the link. Again, that’s seofortherestofus.org/community or click the link right here in the show notes in your podcast player. I love you. Thanks for giving me your most precious asset, your time. I know when I’ve gone on other people’s shows and that host’s audience reached out to say thanks, that just meant the world to me. Finally, please join John’s Some Good Content on Patreon. It’s $10/mo and is worth 10x that (I personally pay for it every month). -- I’m also excited for next week when we'll be joined by the only TWO-TIME guest ever on the podcast. Any guesses on who that’ll be? Share your guess with me on Twitter and I’ll read them at the intro to next week’s show.

Win at SEO with better OUTREACH - Gabby Miele
Our guest this week is brilliant. Generous. Somebody you want to know and follow. If there is one person that knows how to win at SEO, make friends, and build links, it’s her. Please welcome my friend, Gabby Miele. --- One thing I didn’t mention in our chat was that Gabby is a product and growth marketer at Pitchbox, outreach software for link building. I love Pitchbox and use it myself to help track things, test email subject lines, etc. It’s like a… CRM for email outreach. Gabby walked us through some ninja tips for Pitchbox inside the membership community that you can check out at seofortherestofus.org/community. ALSO, since we’re talking links, this week only I’m doing a super secret sale just for podcast listeners: an epic 50 PERCENT off my link building course, authority on autopilot. Combine that course with Gabby’s masterclass and you’ve got something pretty incredible to work with when it comes to ranking in Google. Check out that course at seofortherestofus.org/authority. Again that’s seofortherestofus.org/community for the seofortherestofus.org/authority for the special, podcast-listener only 50 percent off my link building course. I’m also excited for next week when we'll be joined by John Bonini where we’ll go on a SUPER deep dive exploration on winning at SEO by becoming somebody’s favorite content. I was really sleeping on how good John is at this stuff and he is going to absolutely blow your mind with how he thinks about content. I’ve been Brendan Hufford, don’t forget to work hard, be nice to people, and don’t get too lost trying to create something that matters.

Win at SEO by Building LOYALTY - Chase Dimond
We talked previously in episode 66 with Val Geisler about winning at SEO by better onboarding people to your product, primarily through email. And, in our last episode, we talked with Jay Clouse about community and again the overlap was with email. If SEO is the best way to build traffic, EMAIL is the flywheel that helps you grow that engine with deeper relationships. EMAIL is what builds LOYALTY. So I reached out to a new friend to talk more about email and how to become somebody’s favorite AFTER they opt in. SEO traffic is cool, but conversions and purchases are way cooler. Today’s co-host has driven $50+ million in email revenue for clients. Partner at a 7 figure Ecommerce Email Marketing Agency. He’s a ton of fun to follow on twitter. Please welcome my friend, Chase Dimond! --- If you’re a longtime listener, I have a surprise for you so sit tight for just a second.

Win at SEO by Building Community - Jay Clouse
Something has been… missing… for a lot of us over the past year. 2020, and now into 2021. A group of people who support one another. It’s not on Facebook, or instagram, or even Twitter (as much as we’d like to pretend it is, or could be). Those are.. Audience. A conversation, maybe, but more likely a place where you What we’ve been missing, many of us, in this pandemic is something else. Before we get into what that is, I want to point out a big trend recently: Zapier acquired Makerpad Hubspot acquired The Hustle Business Inside acquired Morning Brew What those big companies are buying is exactly what we’ve been missing: community. It’s not just valuable for the acquisition, but also for (I’d argue) for SEO. If you want articles written about you, easy backlinks via deep relationships, you can get there with an audience, but it’s far easier with a strong COMMUNITY. Today, we’ll go on that journey together, discovering how to win at SEO by becoming somebody’s favorite community. I want to give you an invitation. Join Jay and myself inside the SEO for the Rest of Us community, for a brief masterclass on how to tactically implement the very thing we’ve talked about all episode: Winning at SEO by becoming somebody’s favorite community.

Onboarding: What do I do next? Then, reward them for doing the right thing. Jump into the community to get Jay’s masterclass on becoming somebody’s favorite community.

Win at SEO by Becoming Somebody's Favorite Onboarding - Val Geisler
Onboarding. Not that exciting. Right? Wrong. Think about the last party you went to. (Remember parties?) How'd the host greet you at the door? Did they show you around? Introduce you to other people? SEO isn’t just about getting clicks from Google. You need clicks that drive your business and also contribute to a customer lifecycle, not just a funnel. We need those cold visitors to convert, to subscribe to our ideas and worldview, and then want to become evangelists. BUT, you can also use an online element to make every single person who comes to your site from Google and subscribes or buys, into a RAVING FAN. Our guest today has experience working in marketing for nonprofits, big tech companies. she’s IN-credible. Matt Hall, the founder of Common People, says “Have you ever seen a movie that changes how you see the world? And suddenly the world feels a little different, a little more exciting? Her training was one of those moments for me in business.” She’s been called an email geek, a copywriter, a marketer, and a real game changer. You can just call her Val.
