How To Hire An SEO Agency | Grow Your Retail Business Today
How to hire an SEO Agency, is a problem I have faced in the past, and I know pretty much anyone out there running a small or even a larger business faces. How do you quantify if what you're being pitched is realistic or even going to cut the mustard? As someone who both DOES Search Engine Optimisation for my own businesses and others - and has hired for it - I know how to recruit wrong. Fortunately... I also know what to look for now. Here's my take on what you should be looking for and for those who didn't want to ask - what SEO even really is. SPOILER ALERT: It's not just downloading an app or completing the 'SEO box' on Shopify product descriptions. The best SEO work is a lot more involved and sometimes incredibly slow-paced, data entry work. So anyway, without padding this description out too much so I can slip in a cheeky off-page SEO backlink, here's how to hire an SEO agency. Where next? | How To Speed Up a Shopify Store What is involved in SEO? SEO includes 4 key areas, which I am going to cover: User Experience Technical SEO / Page Performance On-Page SEO Off-Page Linking/PR How does this all relate to retail? Well, ranking well locally means footfall through your door over a competitor's retail location. Clicks to bricks as it's known. Secondly, if you sell products online, or want to, search engine improvements are vital to make your presence become known. Here are this shopkeeper's tips to help you keep that traffic flowing and how to hire an SEO agency.

Seven Habits of Successful People | High Performance Habit | Part 2 with the Nutriguy
Seven habits of successful people is the topic of our high performance habit podcast and this is part 2. I spent the evening with dietician and instagram advisor @thenutriguy where we shared our top tips for improving your output in life and work. They often say successful people have a set of disciplines or daily habits they follow each day without fail and we took the time to share those we conduct ourselves. Recently I have spent a few months devoting to improving my health, my work and my wellbeing and this is what we cover today. If you want to get on in the workplace, improve your health or learn a new skill, you may find this podcast of real value. If nothing else, have another glass of water, cos this one goes deep. I put these MOBshow Mason on business podcasts out as a hobby really. I have enjoyed learning to record and edit audio, but I also see the value in contemplative learning to improve what I do on a day to day basis. I'm a jack of all trades (well a few) and master of absolutely zero. But I do like guinea pigging to see what works. If you enjoyed this podcast don't forget to jump on instagram and thank @thenutriguy for his input. You can find me on there @the_mobshow come say hi. Seven habits of successful people!
