I provide an in-depth blog audit & business consultation that starts off with an in-depth audit of your website that includes search engine optimization, content optimization, optimizing your income pilars and culminating with a business strategy plan .

During your audit, I don’t just look at one part of your blog or business. I look at everything to identify ways you can improve your web presence, time management & ultimately your income.

Together, we create a written plan to accomplish your goals that fits into your busy life. And I send that to you after your call.

What's in a Blog & Business Audit?

Every blog audit I do starts with a 4-Hour Mini-Blog Audit. We cover several different areas of your Blog and your Business where I feel people with blogs need the most help. Don't worry, the 4 hours will go by very fast... and yes, we can totally take breaks.

When you first engage me to work together, I'll send you over a detailed questionairre. After we scedule your blog audit, you'll fill out the questionairre and get it back to me. During your business consultation we'll discuss your answers, then dive right your audit.

What they’re saying about me!!!

  • "Working with Brian on my tenured website as well as my brand new website has hands down been the best investment of time and energy I have ever made to date. As someone who owns several successful websites, Brian gets the day to day struggles we go through. He has a unique understanding of social media, content creation, working with brands, SEO, marketing, and more. He also has access to some mind-blowing software for performing crazy in-depth analysis on websites. He uses this date plus his knowledge to provide actionable plans of attack both in terms of cleaning up major technical issues to taking a website to the next level from a business standpoint. He is very forward-thinking, encouraging, and creative. I *thought* I knew what I was doing but Brian's enthusiastic direction has not only reinvigorated my passion for both of my websites but also truly made me excited about doing all the tedious cleanup! Everyone needs a coach like Brian!"

His very direct nature makes it so you don't waste time during scheduled appointments and he always provides a step by step action plan from your calls. My favorite part though is that he is always around to answer questions (no matter how random or silly they seem) and will never make you feel out of place for asking them.
