Notes from an Intuitive Creative: Free SEO Guide & Other Resources
Welcome: Start here!
Welcome to your free Notes from an Intuitive Business resource library! I love helping creatives and small, purpose-driven businesses to grow in a way that feels right for them, and believe that there's no one-size-fits all approach to online marketing. I also believe that the more people striving to build sustainable livelihoods that bring them and others joy the better; focusing on serving our communities in a wholehearted way, in a way that doesn't leave us feeling burnt out and disconnected from the things—and people!—that matter most to us, is a truly radical thing that has the power to change the world for the better. The resources I share here are based on principles and practices I've found helpful in my own work; I hope they can help you, too.

Intuitive SEO: The 5-Day Action Challenge
This 5-day challenge is designed to teach you SEO basics in a series of bitesize chunks, and encourage you to put your knowledge into action by offering super simple action steps that you can do in around 10 minutes a day.
Welcome! Watch this before you start the challenge…
Welcome to the Intuitive SEO 5-Day Challenge! Before we dive in, I’d love to encourage you to watch the Welcome video, above. This challenge was originally shared via email, but you can access it all here in this free resource library. If you want to binge through it all in one day, that’s fine—but it might work best if you treat it as a 5-day challenge, spreading the videos and action challenges out over the course of 5 days.
The lesson for each day includes a short 5-15 minute video to watch, that will teach you a basic core principle of SEO, along with an action step or challenge which will take you around 10 minutes of focused action a day. By the end of the 5 days, you’ll have taken some solid action on your website that will help your search traffic to grow, and you’ll have started to adopt a search-friendly mindset that will turn SEO from something heavy on your “to-do” list, to something ease-filled that you act on intuitively every time you work on your website or share anything online. This is what Intuitive SEO is aaaall about…
Here’s the website wish list document that I mention in the welcome video—I’d really encourage you to download this and brain dump any ideas that pop into your head throughout the week about updates and tweaks you want to make to your website so that you don’t get overwhelmed or stuck, but keep focused on the ONE simple action step I’ll be encouraging you to take each day.
And, if you’d like to read the slides for the Welcome video, you can download those here.
This challenge is all about proving that with SEO, a little goes a long way, and that it’s not about doing All the Things, but doing less, better.
I really hope that by the end of the challenge you’ll have a taste of what you can do with simple steps, taken consistently over time, and that you’ll have started to approach SEO in a much more intuitive way.
Here’s to helping our ideal audience discover our work more easily online… So many people are out there, searching for exactly what you have to offer—let’s make it possible for them to find you. See you in Day One of the challenge (the next lesson).
