Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus

As business owners we quickly learn that if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. False promises on get-rich quick and home-based business opportunity sites come to mind as an example. So we become wary consumers, looking for the truth behind the spin. So when we were contacted recently by George Ajazi offering “free SEO advice”, we were understandably skeptical.

But every so often, someone comes along who is, honest to goodness, giving something really valuable away. George turned out to be one of those people!I visited George’s website, www.ajazi.com, and was impressed by what I saw. Professional-looking. No hype. A real, honest-to-goodness free offer, from an expert with big-business SEO experience, to help small businesses with their search engine optimization. Did I mention it was free? All he requested was a live link back to his site. I was flabbergasted. And intrigued. And hopeful that maybe this fellow could help ME in my SEO struggles. So I could tell you about it!

Numerous emails flew back and forth, as I conveyed to George exactly what the site was about, and SEO work I’d done before. George suggested a phone call — I was figuring on about 30 minutes. Just days later, we had that phone call. I got a chance to explain the what’s and why’s of Solo-E. George started suggesting some major strategic changes that could improve not just our visibility in the search engines, but our overall value and usability to visitors.

An hour and a half later, my head was spinning! I had a long list of shifts I could make to Solo-E, some big, long-term; others quick and easy. All extremely valuable, insightful, and specific to Solo-E. I’ve been doing SEO as an amateur long enough to know that this guy knew his stuff…and what he shared with me, rocked my world.

And afterward — no sales pitch. Instead, an offer to help me long-term with my strategy. And to let me check in periodically with questions, and feedback.  George’s free SEO offer is available to you, too — please check it out. And tell Santa — I mean George — I sent you!
