Topic: SEO is Easy
Presented By: Alicia Laing from Creative Mode
Location: River City Labs, Fortitude Valley

This talk will help site owners, content managers and developers understand how a small business website can generate new business leads from Google.

In this talk I will show you how I get my small business clients to the top 5 in Google and why, what I’ve seen and learned recently from working on ‘WordPress Sites I Didn’t Build’, and how to decide whether search marketing is a suitable strategy for your business (or for your clients business).

I will show you:
1. How I choose clients I can help and what I look at initially
2. How I apply the basics of SEO to a WordPress website and …
3. Some problems I’ve seen recently that impact SEO

This is pure, white hat, best practice SEO with nothing tricky. Specific to simple, small business websites that have basic information and an enquiry form.

Alicia Laing designs, codes, hosts, markets and manages small business websites that get found in Google. She is the owner of Creative Mode, a very small web agency located in the Western Suburbs of Brisbane.
