Is this a company you run or something? There’s literally zero useful information on that page.

You can't join the podcast.
The podcast "SEO in 2022" isn't available yet. Seems more like an email - name harvesting attempt than a podcast announcement at this time.

Intentions aside your post looks like spam no more no less.

I can't help getting the feeling we're going though some sort of mini 'dotcom bubble 2.0'.

One of the reasons so many people are quitting their jobs right now is because they've been working online at home for their big companies / corporations for so long, staring at their computers, that it's slowly dawned on them that if they put in the same amount of work and effort, they can use that very same tool from the very same location (who needs an expensive office anymore?) and work for themselves, either in a similar field to what they were always underpaid doing when they worked for their big companies, or a completely different field - the next big podcast / YouTube channel / author / programmer etc...

The only question is, is the internet big enough to accommodate all of these new digital entrepreneurs? I feel that only the best will actually be successful.

But back to the OP, you're right. Any online business / money making venture starts with good SEO.

It starts with a good idea, SEO is one channel of marketing.

not exactly, seo is not marketing.
its optimizing ur website so that he gets maximum traffic.

just having an idea ( ur idea, i gurantine you is nOT unique) it must be seen by the maximum number and hopefully, if ur site is optimized, those unique visitors and se engine crawls ( which will get you higher ranking) will convert to sales, commissions, views, bookings, etc etc.

The Truth About SEO and Website Performance
SEO has gained traction over the last few years, although many have yet to grasp its importance and relevance.
The truth is that SEO is not another marketing gimmick that costs a lot of money yet yields no results.

SEO acts like an engine in a car or tires on a bicycle; it gives your website its “go” in terms of search engine value.

Your website can look stunning, but that’s not enough to win in the search engines.

In the world of Google, it’s all about performance, relevancy, and just the right amount of optimization.

Without SEO, your website is essentially like driftwood in the sea.

They say the corporate world has changed forever for reasons you stated - people having to work from home, now wanting to - and I did long ago.

I worked better without distractions, so I put it to the hierachy, that I would be more productive from home. They tried to compromise with a quiet office etc., but I was steadfast, and threatened to quit. They gave me a very good reference when they sacked me that day, so I found a new appointment the next day and went in with my idea early, which worked, as did the idea. I was pounding out much more the in the office environment. Problem for the company is what you said. I realised I could do this myself. More money, more headaches, but more money.

So I worked for myself, in competition with the company that had kindly given me the opportunity to realise etc...

The thing is it is only me, and admin is time-consuming. One email can take hours albeit, the ensuing ones are copy/pasters.

So, what I am getting to is, I'm interested and will check it out and issue feedback, because I need everything from office software to websites. And I will do them myself because both of the techies I have paid in advance have been so lazy, I educated myself and finished the project before they started.
