Caitlin joins us this week to discuss everything SEO.
Caitlin's depth and breath of knowledge on SEO and how it can have a positive impact on your business. Knowing how to properly position your business for optimization of SEO rankings is a key factor in getting eyeballs on your business and your brand.
Enjoy this interview and check out Caitlin's story and services at www.RisingRanksDigital.com
And Caitlin's 'why' from her website:
The moment I knew I wanted to start my own business happened during the hardest trial I’ve ever faced…
We went through five failed IUIs, 2 failed IVFs, 2 miscarriages, heard heartbeats and lost heartbeats - but, we ended up getting our miracle, our boy Wyatt.
But when he was two months old, the unthinkable happened. We had to rush our baby boy to the hospital for heart surgery. If we hadn’t gone into the hospital when we did, he could’ve gone into heart failure. And after he survived that, Wyatt developed blood clots from the procedure that landed us right back in the hospital for other complications, one eventually leading to eye surgery.
During a portion of our multiple hospital stays, my husband had to leave us and travel for work. That’s when I realized that I NEVER wanted to go back to working a 9-5 desk job (or, let’s be real, a 9-9) EVER AGAIN.
I wanted to have the flexibility to be there for my family if I needed to be, for however long they needed me. I wanted to spend life doing only what I loved to do. And most importantly, I wanted to spend as much time with my precious son and husband as possible. Thankfully, Wyatt fully recovered and is a healthy, happy little boy!
Through that whole experience, I realized how much of a GIFT our lives really are, and that if we’re healthy and alive, we have NO EXCUSE not to be doing something great with our lives, NO EXCUSE not to be doing what we love, and NO EXCUSE not to be changing people’s lives for the better! And that’s what I hope to do by serving you.
Your potential clients have MANY choices in choosing one product/service over another. How do you stand out?

For Entrepreneurs By Entrepreneurs – Tactics and Trainings from The World’s Best Entrepreneurs
Do you have Story to tell?
Are you an Entrepreneur with a specialized skillset?
I believe that EACH successful Entrepreneur has ONE THING they do better than everyone else. We are looking for THOSE Entrepreneurs that stand out in their field. No, I’m not talking about each industry. I’m talking about a very specific tactic or strategy that YOU use that has helped you become a successful Entrepreneur. I want to share that tactic, your story with other Entrepreneurs to INSPIRE them to give them a blueprint. Because YOU are a SOMEONE. YOU are an EXPERT. Even if you don’t think you are, trust me, I KNOW you are and others will know too. To keep your knowledge to yourself is a disservice to all the blood, sweat, and years of hard work that made you a success.
I’ve found that successful Entrepreneurs are the most giving, the most passionate, the most willing-to-help people that I’ve ever met.
Maybe. Just Maybe your story, your specialized tactic or strategy will INSPIRE that person sitting behind a desk all day to take a risk, like you have, like I have. Maybe your strategy will get that struggling Entrepreneur over the hump. It could light that fire inside and give them the spark they’ve needed for success.
