Some see SEO copywriting as a dirty term. Us here at Siege Media fall into that camp, and so does our esteemed guest, Joel Klettke.
Joel, founder of Business Casual Copywriting and Case Study Buddy, comes from a search background and has moved into a CRO one. As someone who frequently works with writers and also was an “SEO copywriter” himself, there’s no better person to talk the intersection of search and content.
In this episode we talk TF:IDF, how to hire writers, ranking for “What is X?” keywords without writing 4,000 words, 10x content, service page copy, and a whole lot more.
