Binge-Worthy SEO 📺

Published about 1 month ago • 1 min read

Hello Reader,

Have you ever queued up a new show on Netflix and—whoops—hours later you've watched the whole thing?

Who hasn't? 🙋🏻‍♀️

They hook us in with a great first episode and dangle teasers about what's to come, the stories that will enfold, and we just have to watch one more episode.

Excellent content-first SEO is just like that.

We find a hook to bring in eyeballs (ie the keywords that our audience is using).

Then we pique their interest with that initial experience (thanks to well structured content that's true, meaningful, and distinctive).

Finally, they're presented with more they can check out right then and there (via internal links, related content, and content upgrades or lead magnets).

Just like that binge-worthy show on your favorite streaming service.

The goal isn't getting them to watch one episode—it's for them to not be able to stop until they've finished the series. That's how excellent content-first SEO hides in plain sight. You don't know you've gone down the rabbit hole until you're deep inside it and then it's too late.

I'm teaching this methodology inside Summer of SEO 2024, which can best be described as a group strategy program that's designed to also support you in finally building your authority in the search engine and beyond. Enrollment will open this week (we're putting the finishing touches on the tech right now—it always takes longer than I think it will) and the wait list will have first shot at the limited spaces.

If it interests you, sign up to get notified first (there's no obligation to enroll).

Talk soon,

Sarah

Hi! I'm Sarah Moon!

The status quo of modern marketing isn't designed for you and me.The hard truth is that most marketing strategies are designed for massive corporations, while small businesses, consultants, coaches, and other experts are left feeling that the advice they’re given just doesn’t fit—and they’re right. We have two choices: we can struggle to force our businesses into an ill-fitting mold, or we can reinvent a system that works for us and allows us to thrive. I don’t know about you, I prefer door number two. 💌 Reach our team at hello@smco.studio. 🌟 Ready to work together? https://sarahmoon.net/get-started

Hello Reader, Do you ever feel like your marketing is just you standing on a crowded street jumping around saying, "Hey it's me, I'm over here, do you see me..."? It's not just you. From the hundreds of conversations I've had this year alone, a lot of people feel this way—everything seems noisy and crowded. I do, however, believe there's a way to still "do marketing" while avoiding that crowded street feeling: You can instead become a beacon of fresh ideas and spark conversations? I've...

Hello Reader, We sold out Summer of SEO 2024 a week before the deadline—how cool is that? Pretty freaking cool, I think! But what's even cooler is that this reminded me of something that I tell my clients, but forget to repeat to myself: This business thing? It should be fun. Sure, not every single thing (I hate admin and always will), but at it's core, there should be an element of joy. That was the attitude I had when promoting this summer program: I decided to do what was fun—including my...

Hello Reader, This week, I saw a great post from strategist Mark Pollard (a great follow if you're a strategy dork like me) reminding us that "Frameworks Frame Work." This concept has also been on my mind as I've been prepping for Summer of SEO 2024. In my strategic toolbox, I rely on a framework I call "Alignthority™." It's a powerful tool that helps me as a consultant pinpoint what truly matters for my clients and identify any gaps they might have missed along the way. But here's the thing:...
