Home Page Copy

For the most recent client project, I interviewed the owner of the business about their competitive advantage, why he started the business, and what his digital marketing goals are. I translated everything from the owner’s native Russian to English, did SEO research for keywords, and re-wrote the copy on the home page to fit the brand tone and voice. I also suggested adding new sections to highlight the value of renovations. Since this change, traffic to the website more than doubled thanks also to my launch of a new Google My Business listing. Blog #1: How do car brakes work?

I researched the topic and used UberSuggest to find viable keywords, to create an educational and SEO-friendly piece.

AllRotors Blog #2: My car has rusty rotors, should I be worried?

Blog is ranking in top #1 position on Google for the long-tailed keyword.

Fall Semester Prep 101

Students, welcome back! Hopefully you had a great summer. Going back to school is equally as exciting as it is nerve-wracking but don’t worry, you will find your classes and settle into a routine quickly enough!
