Optimizing Website Copy: The Where & How of Successfully Using Keywords
April 26th at 2:00pm Eastern Time
Exclusive 'Free' Webinar for NMOA Subscribers

If you listen to every "expert" out there, you'd think writing search engine optimized (SEO) copy was rocket science. Ratios and percentages and coding are talked about as if they are ingredients to some secret sauce without which you can't get good rankings. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Optimizing copy is simple if you follow an organized framework for each page.

Search engines are - first and foremost - text machines. Problem is, most people simply try to shove the keyphrases into the copy as many times as possible (as if shear volume had anything to do with it). There's more to it than that. It's not a matter of quantity. It's a strategic balance of where and how you use keyphrases that delivers maximum impact. Complicated? Not Hardly!

The process is actually quite logical. It's one of those things that - once you see it laid out before you - you'll wonder why you never thought of it yourself. Don't worry you're not alone. Most people never grasp the simplicity of this strategy by themselves. But now you'll have an opportunity to follow along as search engine copywriting pro, Karon Thackston, guides you through the steps. You'll walk away with a well thought out plan of action you can apply to all your web pages. You'll be equipped to construct well balanced and optimized copy that actually guides visitors click-by-click from your search engine listing all the way to your "Buy Now" links.

Hosted by a veteran copywriter with 25+ years experience, on Tuesday, April 26th starting at 2pm ET (New York time) copywriting expert, Karon Thackston will be hosting a webinar exclusively for NMOA members. During this one-hour, interactive session, Karon will give you a simple yet proven approach to improving the overall performance of your site pages. You'll learn:

1. How to choose keyphrases that match your visitors' intentions for better results.
2. Karon's SEO Framework that takes all the guesswork out of optimizing your page copy.
3. 2 long-time myths that lead people astray: get ready to be enlightened!

Have specific copywriting issues you need to discuss? There will be plenty of time to ask questions at the end of the webinar. What's the cost? Because Karon is associated with NMOA, she's agreed to do this webinar exclusively for our members for free. You'll get the same quality information that Karon uses for clients like Gorton's Seafood and Xtend-Life.

It's Time to Link Up with LinkedIn
By Jean Maslanka Kelley

Before you dismiss the idea of using LinkedIn because you only know it as that "bland" social media site where people go when they're looking for a job, realize that currently there are 90 million LinkedIn users worldwide. One new user joins every second of every day. And unlike social media sites like Facebook where many people use the site for entertainment, all LinkedIn users are business minded. That means the connections you develop on LinkedIn are more likely to positively impact you or your company in some way. Therefore, if you want better or more professional business relationships, LinkedIn is the place to be. Even if you have a business profile on Facebook and Twitter, LinkedIn makes a perfect addition to your personal or business branding efforts.
