Today we are going a little bit off the beaten path on the SEO learning path.
This episode is dedicated to people who are looking to learn SEO for a family business.
When families run their businesses and the business is split between an older and younger generation, there can be stressors between the two groups on how to run and market their business, let alone which tactics to use, which could include SEO, Local SEO, Local Search Ads (LSA), and more.
That is why I have brought in an expert on business succession to go over the main issues that face family businesses and pathways to overcome the friction of multi-generation family businesses and business succession.
Businesses that align amongst the generations with a succession plan will be able to move forward, working together as a unit, where they can have a strategy on how they are going to market their business.
It is my pleasure to welcome Stephen Shortt to the show.
