For search engines, trust is largely determined by the quality and quantity of the links your domain has earned, but that's not to say that there aren't other factors at play that can influence your site's authority. Think about all the different ways you come to trust a brand: Awareness (you know they exist), Helpfulness (they provide answers to your questions), Integrity (they do what they say they will), Quality (their product or service provides value, possibly more than others you've tried), Continued value (they continue to provide value even after you've gotten what you needed) Voice (they communicate in unique, memorable ways), Sentiment (others have good things to say about their experience with the brand).
TLDR: Public Relations is meant to build and maintain a relationship with your public not necessarily to get leads, traffic, or sales (though, if done right, it will indirectly lead to this). To get started, nail down your brand message and the audience you’re targeting. Reach out to journalists, reporters, and bloggers and start providing “insider” value. Start pitching, sending samples, checking competitor backlinks (to see where they’ve pitched), and writing newsworthy press releases about your brand. Then join the Copy Identity Facebook Group where we’re working to help Makers make a difference in their businesses by providing free content and access to experts in everything a small business owner needs to grow online.

So, Christine, why don't you tell the audience a little bit about yourself?
So my name is Kristine and I grew up and the Minneapolis St. Paul area and moved to college up in Duluth, Minnesota. We call it the tundra because we're about four hours away from Canada. And, yeah, so went to college here and got a corporate job and was loving it. And I'm the kind of person that I'm just a go-getter, right? Like I never want. And I'm always trying to achieve achieve achieve.
And so when I got into my corporate job, when they wouldn't promote me, I would figure out a way to promote myself, right? They say, every three years, you should give yourself a raise. And so that was the motto I went by. I wasn't, if it wasn't an opportunity, I would create that opportunity.
So, for example, when there wasn't a position available, I said, Okay, well then I guess I'm going back...

AJ, welcome to the podcast. For those that don't know you, who are you and what do you do?
So, you know, you go to websites and people spend all this time trying to get people to get there. Yes. Like they're spending money on ads. They're spending money on SEO. They're posting on social media. They're doing all this work. And then crickets, right? Yeah, I help them fix that. Good. Now I help them figure out what's going on. Where are those people getting there? And how do we get them to convert or to take the action that this site is set up to do?
So, I guess the first question that comes to mind is how exactly do you do that?
Great question! We do it through a technique called Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO). So, this is a set of tools and processes that really get you to figure...

Yeah, thanks for having me!
My name is Liz and I own a media agency that serves what we call the Female Launch Star. So, people with integrity who want to positively influence more allies and make mountains of sales. We have done for you services from Instagram, and Facebook ads to email and copywriting and sales funnels.
But really, we're just here to help and educate and help those small business owners that really want to make an impact and influence more people, but don't know how to do that from a marketing strategy standpoint.
Cool. So, the Female Rockstar? Are your tagline drugs, sex, and marketing?
Hey guys. So today in this podcast, we're going to be talking about three ways you can improve your emails to create some really bang and stuff. This is gonna be short, sweet, and simple. So let me get right into it. So, the very first way you want to create compelling emails is to focus on the headline and the headline is also a sub-headline.
Some of your CRM platforms or your email campaign platforms like MailChimp will allow you to like edit the sub-headlines where you can write whatever you want to. So, here's what I want you to do. The headline itself should be something that catches their attention. Don't be afraid to use their name, use emojis, things of that nature. You also want it to generally have a good hook. Think why would they want to know this?
The sub-headline itself, you want to actually tell people what the email is about. People just really don't click on spam anymore. Like the click...
I got a question recently, the question was, do I need to have my course completed before I start selling it?
Now, even though many of you are designers and handmade creators, a couple of you out there trying to create courses, sort of similar to like Skillshare. You're trying to showcase your ability and use it as a different source of income.
So the big thing to take away here is that there are two schools of thought. The first being that, yes, you should have your course ready, because you want people who do buy to go right into it, right?
It's a little bit more difficult in today's day and age to do pre-sales because a lot of people want what they buy right away. They don't want to wait for weeks or months. So that brings us to the second point.
Should you sell without actually having the course done? The answer to that is yes, but there are a couple of prerequisites. First, you should have the course at least planned out. That way, you know what...
