For many of you, SEO – Search Engine Optimisation – is so important to growing the traffic of your website but many of us struggle along and don’t realise the potentially epic transformation we can have on our traffic, not to mention the quality of our sites’ SEO, by writing great copy.
Luckily Tim Wenger, a top copywriter and blogger, is here to tell you all the exact reasons why using a copywriter for SEO will transform your traffic. Take it away Tim.
Why Using a Copywriter for SEO Will Transform Your Traffic
Great SEO starts in a website’s framework, but one of the best and most affordable ways to take it up a notch is through the consistent production of keyword-based, SEO-friendly content creation.
You’ve certainly heard this before. But why do so many people struggle with producing this content?
It’s funny to me that so many entrepreneurs say things like “I can’t write” or “I don’t have time to blog.” But then they turn around and make a claim about how their website needs to be more SEO-friendly. “Why don’t you hire a copywriter for SEO?” replies an inquiring soul.
Which is often followed by “I’d love to hire a copywriter, but…”
a) “I don’t know where to find a good one”
b) “I can’t afford it”
c) “I don’t trust anyone to create content in line with my vision”
As someone who is both an entrepreneur and a copywriter (I wanted to start a business in something, might as well be the one thing I’m good at, right?), I’m going to systematically disprove all three of these claims. Approaching all angles of your website is important, and I’d like to prove to you why you should hire a copywriter for SEO.
When I first heard somebody mention the term lifestyle business, I had to be honest, I was a bit sceptical.
I was chatting with a friend at work after having read a blog post about working from abroad. The whole remote travel thing had struck a chord with me, but we both wondered if it was another one of these ‘get rich quick schemes’.
It was only after I actually did some proper research that I realised that there are so many different ways in which you can make money online. The more research I did the more I realised, running my own lifestyle business is completely achievable.
It seems topical to write about this today. As of writing this post, I’m in the back of a car on the way to The Lake Of Constance, Germany with a group of 4 amazing people I’ve met whilst travelling.

Lifestyle businesses are often started in your spare time and can evolve into full-time work, so I’ll aim to help you figure out how to start working from home. However, there are a number of challenges when working from home.
Note from Jamie: This is a guest post written by one of my good friends Meg. She has a ton of experience when it comes to Pinterest and after getting a lot of advice from her personally on how to improve my traffic using Pinterest, I asked her to compile a Pinterest guide for you guys. Nailing Pinterest is one of the fastest ways to grow traffic to your site and I know a lot of bloggers who have doubled and sometimes quadrupled the amount of traffic they are receiving after following tips the same as Meg is offering below.
I hope you get a ton of useful info out of today’s post and please get stuck into Pinterest and follow both myself and Meg on Pinterest and share your success with us directly!
Paradise Pack Journal 005: How to overcome feeling overwhelmed
A quick look back at the last few weeks
Collectively now we’ve had nearly 2 months of action within The Paradise Pack, and I can honestly say that they have been some of the best weeks of my life (that sounds like a massive exaggeration but I mean it!)
When we look back, what we have been able to accomplish in 2 months is nothing short of a miracle. For me personally I’ve altered my daily routine, changed my habits, grown my friendship circle to people who make me accountable for the actions that I take and above all else, I’m now in a position where I’m about to embark on a brand new adventure, quit my job and pursue that ‘dream lifestyle’ that I’ve been wanting for years.
So how come I have this gut wrenching feeling in my stomach?
It’s something that I’ve seen pop up a few times in the last week or so with other members of The Paradise Pack either through conversation, the Facebook group or just a small message. It seems I’m not alone in feeling the strain.
What I’ve been experiencing is this feeling of being overwhelmed.
I’ve chosen my battle route, I’ve made the plans. I’ve booked the flights and I’ve come up with a business plan (of sorts) and guess what I’m left with?
That feeling of:
OH SHIT! THIS IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING?!
If I were a gambling man I’d be willing to put money on the fact that there are at least a couple of you reading this who are feeling exactly the same way.
The Paradise Pack Journal – New Site Launch & Travel Plans
Welcome guys to my 4th installment of The Paradise PackJournal.
I’m so happy that you’re here!
I can’t believe how quickly the time has flown and how it’s been over a month since I started blogging about my progress through The Paradise Pack. E ven though I feel like I’ve made some real progress, there is still so much more that I feel like I need to complete.
If you haven’t read last week’s post The Paradise Pack Journal: 003, I spoke about what my perfect day looks like. I also explored through Sean Ogle’s course what I wanted out of life and created a mind-map putting this into a visual chart. The last entry also gave me the chance to share my new bullet journal and how I planned to use it in the future.
So what’s happened this week?
I’ve started planning for September and my departure from ‘normal’ life and making location independence a reality. I’ve also started to launch a brand new website to accompanyLet’s Get Jobless!!
For the last few months, I’ve been considering the option of starting an income report. I’ve had various reservations about starting one, primarily my main concern has been that people may think that I’m out to make money when my main goal is to help people grow.
What I didn’t want to do was to have the focus of my blog be about making money, because that’s not the reason I’m writing it. I worried that if I started measuring income from my site that would be my main drive for the content, instead of focusing on helping people. This is a trap that I have fallen into before in my career, always chasing the money but that never making me happy.
The Paradise Pack Journal 003: SEO, Freelance & More Journals.
This week has been a fun week. What I’m starting to feel now is the beginnings of that momentum. You know that feeling when you’ve been peddling uphill for a long time, it plateaus out and becomes a lot easier and then you feel the tipping point. As the flat ground starts to change to downhill you feel the momentum starting to build, that’s where I feel I’m at right now.
I’m finding that whereas before I might have had to force myself to spend time thinking about my business, now I’m working on my blog without having to force myself. This is also allowing me to have more free time to work on other future projects. I’m focusing on my blog more than ever, I’m discussing with friends both at work and in my personal life about location independence. I’ve been chatting to my sister about blogging and she’s this week decided to set up her own blog; her passion is all about health and will be launching in the near future!
Procrastination is the art of conformity. Society wants us to confirm, and social media, the internet, the news and people as a whole want us to live a ‘normal’ life. Facebook aims to distract us from real life problems, the news aims to distract us from the real issues we’d like to tackle in our life and politicians aim to distract us from everything whilst they line their pockets!
One of the challenges I’ve found coming into my progress with The Paradise Pack this week is the honeymoon effect coming to an end. Reality has started to take hold and I’ve felt myself take my foot off the gas. I need to make sure I keep the momentum of the first few weeks going, as I progress through the rest of The Paradise Pack.
This week I’ve had a few challenges thrust my way. Our good friend Heath Armstrong would call these challenges ‘Resistance Gremlins’ that are attacking me to try and distract me from my goals!
