The Business Side of SEO (Book) Amazon Best Seller

Loads of actionable lead generation and sales tips for any B2B business. It's not just for digital marketing agencies and SEOs.

Why I have written this B2B business book!

I’m very active in discussing the ethics of SEO. I speak at digital conferences throughout the UK, educating both business owners and digital marketing professionals on what ethical SEO is and how digital marketing agencies should approach ethics with their clients.

The problem within our great industry is many SEO professionals and digital agencies make sales mistakes and create a potential conflict as they just don’t know any different. I’m on a personal mission to make a difference and build some trust back into the SEO industry. If by reading this book, it makes the digital marketing industry think a little differently in their approach to their own sales process as well as helping them to retain more clients, I have done what I set out to do.

Any B2B based business will benefit from reading my book

I have written this book to do my small bit to clean up the reputation of the SEO industry as I really love doing what I do and hate hearing horror stories of business owners getting what they think is ripped off. The truth is, I find that most SEO and digital marketing agencies do not set out to rip anyone off. They just fail to communicate correctly during the lead generation and sales process, which causes issues during the campaign.

A lot of the lead generation and sales advice I have given within this book can be implemented into any B2B business, so it is a worth while read for all.

Amazon No.1 Best Seller Within 24 Hours of Launch

The book publisher who worked with me on the creation and launch of this book, stated that this was one of the best launches he has worked on.

Within 24 hours of launching my book, it went to No.1 Best Seller status in three categories (including Marketing & Sales) within both the UK and USA.

The fact is, as a marketing professional myself. I made sure of two things:

  1. I created a book that people wanted to read, including information they needed to know.
  2. I ran a pre-launch digital marketing campaign.

Marketing a book is no different than driving sales to any business. I just used the skills I have to benefit myself.

“I bought your first book... and, I don’t care about what you will write on your second as I’m going to buy it. The flow of the selling process is my favourite part, but the whole book is helpful and shows your expertise of the business. So much I learned including, how to give a proposal, the conversation examples with the client... and the fact that all the content of the book is valuable. No smoke inside.”

As mentioned above, I made sure I created a book that people wanted to read which included information they needed to know.

To make sure that happened, I performed a lot of my research for the book within the White Hat SEO group on Facebook - where I reached out to thousands of SEO professionals to ask them what they would find useful.

I was approached by the main admin of the White Hat SEO group to do an ask-me-anything live interview style about the business side of SEO.

By watching this webinar (video), it will enable you to see how my brain ticks when it comes to lead generation and sales.
