What is the Business Success Cafe?

It’s a weekly gathering of small business owners from around the globe. We come together via a telephone conference (with an optional webcast) to learn first-hand from a wide variety of business growth experts.

These global experts, hand-selected for their specific expertise, share with you and your peers important information and priceless tips you need to ensure your business success.

If you’ve been thinking “I need to spend more time learning how to grow my business but I can’t seem to fit it into my day” then this is the perfect solution for YOU!

The Business Success Cafe is where success-minded small business owners, just like you, gather to take a break from their hectic day, and all the problems du jour, to learn from business growth experts in a relaxed virtual environment.

Most importantly you don’t need to carve an hour or more out of your busy schedule…each event is JUST 20 minutes!

Attend from anywhere! While you do need to bring your own coffee…there is no driving, no parking, no hassles…and no tipping the barista.

You probably keep hearing that you need to optimize your pages and posts for Google search.

It’s true. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a powerful way to drive traffic to your business or website. Done properly, over time it becomes a continuous and passive way to drive a steady stream of customers.

Even better...all that search-generated traffic (called organic traffic) is completely free.

Debbie Gartner has been learning, implementing and teaching SEO since 2010. It’s worked out very well for her…she typically generates more than 500,000 page views per month on her site!

If you’ve been blogging for a while and learned a bit about SEO, but you’re still not sure if you’re doing it’re in the right place.

SEO is not as complicated as you think. Debbie has helped thousands of bloggers bust out of the mindset that Search Engine Optimization is hard and will show you that “once you ‘get it’ becomes rinse and repeat”.

Join Debbie at the Business Success Cafe to demystify the process and learn how simple SEO is and how to avoid the 7 SEO Myths and Mistakes that business owners make!

Absolutely Amazing!

The content that Cathy provides each week on her Success Cafe is absolutely amazing.

What makes it such a great program is the diversity of topics covered and the fact that each speaker is challenged to present tons of content within a 20 minute coffee break.

As a result, I've been exposed to many ideas that I would not have had the opportunity to see otherwise.
