- People who have or are setting up an online presence – whether it be blog, eCommerce, B2B, etc.
- People who want to scale their site’s online presence FAST
- However, you must also want to give site users the best possible experience – you can’t be in this only for the money
- People who are ready to put in WORK – no shortcuts, just smarter way of getting things done
- Those who are able to put time aside from current jobs to do the assignments and make the suggested changes
- Those that are comfortable sharing what is working for you, and what isn’t
- People who have zero SEO or marketing knowledge whatsoever – we’ll be moving at a fast pace, so it is recommended you come in having either read my book, The Art of SEO, come through the Traffic Control workshop, or simply spend a bit of time researching SEO basics so when we fly through them, you have something to hold onto.
- People who expect the work to be done for them. Granted, I do give you the systems and the structure, but you need to put in work on your own site. Or, plan out an employee’s time to do these tasks. However, you’ll get the most out of it by far by doing it yourself.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
If you’re thinking about joining the Mastermind program, then you probably have some questions. Below, you can find some common questions I get from potential members. If you can’t find the information you need on this website, please get in touch.
How much does it cost?
I’m not going to lie to you: Mastermind is expensive. But if you’re serious about transforming your website, your business, and ultimately your life, then the insights you will gain will be invaluable. Mastermind is based around highly-curated group sessions with an elite group of businesspeople. During these sessions, you will have access not only to Stephan’s expertise, but that of a small group of successful peers.
I’m looking to become an SEO consultant myself. Will this course help me achieve my goal?
If you already have an advanced knowledge of SEO and online marketing, then the Mastermind program is a great way to take your skills to the next level. However, this is an exclusive program, and participants are hand-selected by me.
I went through your online programs and they were great, but I think I’ve learned everything I need to know. Why should I sign up for Mastermind?Mastermind is a year-long program where you will meet with an exceptional group of high achievers four times per year. To be clear, this is an exclusive cadre, hand-picked based on their knowledge, abilities, and achievements. There is simply no way that you could gain the same level of insight from an online program—or many other workshops, for that matter!
I have issues with SEO, but there are bigger problems with my business. Will this program help me fix them as well?
Absolutely. In the Mastermind program, you’ll join a small, elite group of peers to work through key issues in your businesses. Many of the insights you will gain will prove invaluable, both in your work and personal lives.
How much one-on-one time will I have with Stephan personally?
As mentioned previously, Mastermind is comprised of a small group of high-achieving business owners and professionals. There will be plenty of one-on-one time with me, but together we will bring our minds to bear on the key problems of your business (and possibly, your life), and work together to develop innovative solutions. I’m not exaggerating when I say this is a life-changing experience for many people!
I’m a business owner and I don’t really have a good understanding of marketing. Will I be able to keep up?
Participants for the Mastermind program are selected based on their background, experience, and expertise. If you’re interested in attending, contact me to see if you might be a good fit.
How long is the program?
The program lasts for 12 months.
I’ve heard of people who’ve used SEO techniques to turn their websites into “money-making machines.” Can you teach me how to do this?
Do you offer shorter workshops?
Traffic Control is a three-day workshop focused specifically on improving your online business and developing SEO skills.
On your site it says that this course can help me fix problems with my business, but you’re an SEO consultant, not a business consultant. Show me some proof that you know what you’re doing.
While much of my work focuses on SEO, the insights I gain online often lead people to consider major changes to the way their business runs. I’ve assisted many business owners in overhauling both online and offline aspects of their business, and watched those changes manifest into great success.
A friend recommended another Mastermind that’s cheaper. Why should I pay more for yours?
Frankly, there are few programs where you will gain the same level of insight into your business (and your life). Why go for the Prius of personal development when you can afford the Tesla?
I just want to learn some quick SEO hacks to get traffic on my website. Is this course for me?
I need to get my website working quickly, how long before I see results from the techniques you teach?
If you’re looking to overhaul your website and ramp up your traffic, it’s worth attending my Traffic Control workshop, where we will spend three days covering basic SEO strategies, and analyzing problems with your website. Mastermind is a longer-term commitment where we interrogate some of the underlying problems in your business (and your life) that might be holding you back from your true potential.
Can I talk to other people who have taken this course to get a sense of what they learned?
Absolutely! I’m happy to put you in touch with my previous clients.
I’ve hired SEO consultants before, but I never got the results I wanted. Will this course help enable me to do it myself?
Mastermind is designed for high-achievers with exceptional knowledge of online marketing. The purpose is to work through bigger, long-term problems in your business. The return on investment is enormous, as you will be given the tools to solve the underlying issues that are holding you back. If you’re simply looking for advice on fixing your website, contact me for a consultation.
Will I have to share information about my business during the course? I’m not comfortable sharing secrets with people I don’t know.
During the Mastermind program, you’ll be paired with an elite group of successful people. How much you share about your own business is completely up to you. However, the more you share, the more you will get back. Mutual trust and honesty are essential to your success.
I’m not really a technical person, and I don’t really understand SEO. Do you present things in a way that beginners can understand?
Mastermind is specifically designed for people with an advanced knowledge of online marketing. It is not for beginners.
My business has a website, but currently most of my business happens offline. Will this program teach me how to expand the digital side of my business?
As mentioned above, the Mastermind program is specifically designed for people with an advanced knowledge of online marketing. During this program, you will gain deep insights into all aspects of your business, not just the digital side.
My business in running fine, but I want to learn about SEO. Will this program teach me how to rank in Google?
If you already have a good understanding of SEO, then yes, this course will provide you with some amazing advanced techniques. However, we do dive into much deeper issues than Google rankings.
I don’t have time to attend the program myself. Can I send someone from my marketing department?
If you’re not willing to invest your personal time in the Mastermind program, then it’s probably not for you.
