CFT - Day One

It feels like forever since I wrote a blog post and forever since I was this excited, too. I’ve been too wrapped up in the world of daily posting affirmations on LinkedIn and X about the SEO industry to go back to my original roots of causing chaos in the community with ultra long guides and outlandish case studies.

I’m too busy routinely sharing proof of concepts that rock the belief of some to their core, so much so that in the past 12 months, I’ve gained a bigger following than I ever did in my Facebook group glory days.

It’s exactly all of these experiences, projects, and different pieces of the puzzle that I finally wanted to bring something together that resembled uniformity. Thus, the website you’re currently on, currently reading, was born.

This site was first ideated all the way back in January, but it’s taken us a lot of work, a developer running away, over 150,000 words of new (hand written) content and countless hours of team meetings to get it to where it is today.

The entire reason I came up with it in the first place was because Gumroad hit me with a 4x increase in fees whilst I was already getting overwhelmed with the multiple businesses I was juggling. So, I decided instead of selling my courses and eBooks on Gumroad, selling my consulting services by email and DMs, selling audits by referrals and links via 3 different websites, I thought I’d create an all in one shop for it all.

Not only does this free up my time to actually create significantly more content for the business and my marketing surrounding it, but it also gives me more reason to. I have far more power over my own decisions, features, upgrades and roadmap than being a three-headed giant - And yes, I might only be 27, but I can still do Monty Python references.

And whilst this is a launch, it’s also a co-launch, as I’ve put live my latest eBook which goes over the strategies and stories of various SEO millionaires, including my own takes on what made my career and the strategies you need to generate traffic from 12 different search engines:

You can download Strategies & Stories From SEO Millionaires here for just $7.

However, this is just the beginning. The launch of the eBook and the website marks the dawn of a new chapter, but one based on the success that got us here so far, just refined to a new, more sophisticated degree. With a roadmap of products to update or create in development already, the coming months promise a cascade of releases, each more exciting and valuable than the last. From insightful case studies to comprehensive courses, from interactive webinars to engaging community events, there’s a plethora of content and resources coming your way throughout the remainder of 2023 and even more in 2024.

I’d like to thank my team for making all of this possible, and you for believing in me in the first place, I wouldn’t have so many students and success stories without a lot of you taking that initial punt.

As I said earlier in the post, I will be keeping you updated regularly, so this will be the first in a series of blog posts dedicated to being as transparent as possible in a usually opaque environment. Expect to see me back here sooner rather than later.
