1. Sales – You will require the confidence necessary to close the deal and collect an initial website design deposit. Previous website design portfolio, communication and experience are all very important when attempting to make a sale.

2. Statement of Work (SOW) – The ability to create and stand behind those words on a paper. This will help a new client know exactly what you will be responsible for as a website developer.

3. Contract & Homework List – Please don’t skip this step! A contract is always required.

4. Ask the Difficult Questions – You cannot be afraid to approach your client for examples or for greater details on any questions you may have.

5. Understanding your Clients Objective

6. Communication Skills – You must contact your clients regularly in a pleasant manner. Remember most of your clients will have zero experience with building a website, and you need to ensure that this process will be seamless.

7. Leadership – Always remain the authority.

8. Stay Organized – We use a dropbox system, so that the client can upload all content into one location. This saves hours, days, weeks and months of time trying to sort through old emails for content and passwords.

9. Understanding User Experience aka UX Design

10. Have a Special Friend on Speed Dial – never hesitate to call on a mentor, or a more experienced web developer to request assistance with certain elements of a new website build.

SEO For Bloggers | 5 Tips to Improve Your Blog’s SEO

By | 2018-01-02T19:11:44+00:00 January 2nd, 2018|SEO and Internet Marketing Tips|


As a blogger, you have probably heard about SEO. You probably know that it stands for Search Engine Optimization and has to do with adding keywords to your website. But, do you truly understand how to use it in a way to grow sustainable, organic traffic to your blog.

In today’s post, I’m going to break down the basics of SEO for your blog. If you want to know even MORE about SEO for your blog, make sure to check out my e-book “Explode Your Traffic” – get it here: http://www.caffeinateandconquer.com/explode-your-traffic

What is SEO?
It has to do with how Google and other search engines decide what pages, posts, and websites they are going to show someone when they search a specific word or phrase. Search engines ranking pages, which we’ll also refer to as SERPs, want to show their searchers what they think will be the absolute best sites for specific queries at the top of the search pages. 

To do this, they all have an exhaustive algorithm that takes into account countless items when deciding which pages to show. Of course, they look at the content of the page to make sure it has the information that will answer the searcher’s query. They look at:

Content:  Obviously, they look for detailed content that relates to the search. They also want it to be well-written, new, and fresh.
Structure:  SERPs don’t want to send their searchers to shitty sites. If the site has endless pop ups, a design that can’t be read on mobile devices, or a slow load time, then they are going to be less likely to display it. 
Reputation of the domain: If a SERP has deemed this domain not to be reputable because maybe they’ve found nefarious things like spammy ads, non-kosher keyword stuffing, or cloaking, they are less likely to show this site to their teachers. Likewise, if they see things good for your reputation, like that other reputable sites are sharing links to your site or that your domain has been in good standing for many years, then that means they are more likely to show it. 

So, what does all this mean for your blog?

Well, every day millions upon millions of search engine spiders are crawling websites determining their content, keywords, and rank so that they can display or not display them to searchers. As a blogger, it’s good to have an understanding of simple things you can be doing every day to improve your blog’s visibility through SEO.
