With The SEO Hive, A DIY SEO course for beginners

Ready to make Google your #1 salesperson?

Let’s supercharge your digital presence with the power of SEO.

As a small business owner or solo content creator, there is one thing you absolutely can’t afford to waste, and that’s time.

Between serving your clients, creating new products and showing up on social media, it’s safe to say your schedule is booked solid — which is why every moment you spend marketing your business should bring you results, right?

If I had to guess, I’d say you spend most of your marketing moments focused on content creation. And rightly so, since we all know how crucial it is to create high-quality, trust-building, genuinely helpful content that our customers will resonate with.

But there’s one small problem… it’s one thing to sit down and write a blog post or record a podcast, and quite another to make sure it actually reaches the right people.

And right now, your traffic is flatlining, making your website more of a liability than an asset. Rather than raking in leads and raising your revenue, it’s constantly taking precious time away from money-making activities (or from doing things that bring you joy).

So not the ROI you were hoping for.

But What If I Told You That…

With a few technical tweaks and a proven step-by-step plan in place, we’ll make your website a buzzing hub of activity for your business.

I’m not just talking about driving traffic to your site (although that’s a big part of it), but also building your authority, growing your engagement, and even (gasp!) making you more sales. Being a business owner myself, I think that pretty much sums up our top priorities.

Yep, it’s all possible with SEO. And I haven’t even told you the best part yet!

You see, by setting your business up for SEO success from the get-go, all of this growth happens on autopilot… long after you’ve pressed ‘publish’ on your latest post.

No more bending over backwards to cater to an algorithm that puts your goals last, just to meet your revenue goal for the month. With search engines on your side, you could take that social media detox you’ve been craving, and still attract leads, grow your mailing list and make sales. 

When your website works as hard as you do, you get to call the shots.

That’s why I created The SEO Hive: to empower small business owners, bloggers and content creators just like you to optimise your online presence and make the most of search — so that you can level up your business organically, authentically, and in a way that’s sustainable in the long run.

If you’re ready to step up your SEO game and figure this stuff out once and for all, you’ve landed in the right place.

Web Design for Business, Kate Smoothy, Webhive Digital

Hi, I’m Kate!

SEO Strategist + Website Designer

I’ve been designing and building websites since I was 12 years old, but the SEO part came about by accident. Webhive Digital isn’t actually the first business I started! Back in 2013 (before the first-class flights and glam press trips) I was a travel blogger, working as an au pair and living my best life in cities across Europe.

Never in a million years did I think blogging would become my full-time job… until one day, I checked my stats and saw that my blog was racking up hundreds of website visitors daily. Seeing that the majority of my visitors stumbled upon my blog through search, I started digging deeper – inhaling every piece of content I could find about SEO, levelling up my website design, and optimising my blog posts with keywords. Once I realised I was hitting 1000+ visitors per day, I knew I was on to something.

Fast forward to today and I’ve helped more than 50 small businesses grow their reach and gain traction online. I’ve developed bespoke SEO strategies for companies of all shapes and sizes, from local brick-and-mortar businesses to international startups. It’s not a stretch to say that SEO changed my life, and I know it can change the game for you and your business, too.

So if you’re ready to learn the exact SEO success tips, industry secrets and failsafe strategies that have helped me and my clients generate thousands of warm leads thanks to the power of search… it’s time to join the Hive. 

Who knew getting clients from Google could be so simple?

The SEO Hive gives you everything you need to grow your organic reach – and nothing you don’t.

If you’ve ever searched ‘how to rank higher on Google’ you’ll know that there’s a sea of information out there. It’s super easy to get lost in the talk of SERPs, backlinks and black hats. But I’m not here to put you to sleep with technical jargon. Instead, I want to show you how SEO can boost your bottom line – sending ideal clients your way and helping you make money in your sleep. That’s the dream, right?

You’ll come away confident in your understanding of search engine optimisation and how to leverage it to achieve your business goals, and crystal clear on the steps you need to take to get your site seen by the right people. 

And since you get lifetime access, you’ll come back to this course (and the Facebook community) every time you’re ready to refresh your strategy, so you can take your business to the next level.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you’re looking to optimise your website to show up on search engines – then yes this course is for you! If you’re looking for someone else to do the work for you, then you should check out my monthly SEO services.

Once you purchase the course you’ll receive immediate access to all of the modules and lessons. You’ll also be invited to the Facebook group for additional support.

Each module contains three bite-sized training videos that are focussed on one particular part of your SEO training so you can take your time learning each step and implementing what’s needed for your business.

It’s no secret that WordPress is the best platform online for SEO.

However if you’re using Squarespace, Shopify, Webflow or Wix then you will be able to follow this course and apply what you’ve learned. 

In the course there’s one instructional lesson which uses WordPress and I provide tips and advice for the same process on other platforms.

Additionally when I mention tools on the WordPress platform I point you in the direction of similar tools on other platforms where appropriate.

You’ll find all the support you need in the private Facebook group which has been created exclusively for The SEO Hive students to ask any questions they have.

As this is a self study course, I can’t guarantee you’ll show up in position 1. I don’t even promise that to my own SEO clients!

The reason why is that search engine bots are constantly crawling the web for the best possible content to serve searchers. And we can’t control what other websites are putting out there – as nice as that would be!

What we can do, is guarantee you have the best possible chance of showing up on search engine results.

This course is suitable for beginners all the way through to seasoned business owners who have had some initial SEO successes already.

For example, if you’ve got a WordPress website and use the Yoast SEO plugin to optimise your pages, you’ll find this course a valuable step up from that level of optimisation.

If you’ve carried out extensive SEO work on your website, or worked with an SEO marketer, this course may cover things you’ve already done.

If you’re unsure, e-mail me at [email protected] and I’m happy to advise depending on the current work you’ve had carried out.

Results from SEO vary depending on the work you put in and how quickly you implement what’s needed. Typically, businesses start to see results from SEO around three months after they optimise their website, however some things in this course will generate instant changes to your search engine presence.

And while you wait for your SEO work to take effect, you can use the Pinterest lesson within this course to generate instant traffic for your website!
