Hey Jon, Thanks for all the information you share. It’s very helpful and is saveing me so much time. Your the best! Thanks again…. Charles from PA
Hi Jon, this was also very informative. I had one question. You stated in a previous video that when you chose your domain name that it should have some form of the business name in it for SEO purposes. Is there another way that search engines will find you if you don’t do it that way? For instance my domain name is http://www.robertwrightiii.com and this goes to the replicated site of ID. If I wanted to keep this as my primary domain, but use WordPress to create my blog, how would I do that and still get picked up by the search engines. Thanks for your time.
Hi Robert, great to hear from you. Yes, For example … I have my company blog and my personal blog – jonmroz.com. For my company blog, I have the company name within my domain name. This helps tremendously when trying to rank on the first pages of google (after a little bit of SEO work). BUT, if there is a lot of competition for your company keyword, it could be better to do some market research and find another keyword that will be easier to rank for and include that keyword in your domain name. It is possible for you to rank highly without having your keyword within your domain but it will take a whole lot more effort than if you had your keyword within your domain. For example – If you were to type my company name into google, you will more than likely NOT come across jonmroz.com when you type that keyword into the search engines.
So, in your case, I would use yourname.com as a site that is mainly geared towards your specific niche, and then have a page on yourname.com all about your company. You can then SEO that page to rank for your company. Or, you can pick up another domain and have that entire site dedicated towards your company.
I hope that helps 🙂
Great question by the way.

Market research is always essential for the succes of any kind of business.”:.
Your tutorials a very helpful and precise. Itʻs easy to follow so far and understandable. I not only feel great about learning these processes for the first time, but I feel I will be using this process over and over again in the near future.
This is the kind of training that Iʻve been searching for and you have done all the work for us, and provide it for free. I feel that best show of appreciation is to become a success story from your trainings and also build my business as I can. Much appreciation. I can feel myself actually moving forward, but not only that, I can see that this is what I can share with the next person (my future team / my future business).
Thank you so very much Jon,
PS: You know Iʻll be keeping in touch, and I really appreciate the responses.
