The One Where We Chat To SEO Jo Blogs About Soft Skills In SEO

This week Sarah has the absolute pleasure of chatting with SEO Jo Blogs (Jo Juliana Turnbull) about the importance of soft skills in SEO.

Jo is a Growth Marketer at Authoritas, Organiser of two SEO events (Search London & Turn Digi,) and Founder and Online Consultant at SEO Jo Blogs.

The episode begins with a quickfire round of questions, followed by Jo giving a brief overview of herself and how she got into the wonderful digital marketing and SEO world. 

This week the topic is about the importance of soft skills in SEO, we cover everything from what we mean by soft skills to why they are often overlooked in SEO, plus Jo gives practical tips on how to identify and improve the soft skills you have.

We also discuss how to accept things that you can't change about yourself and how important confidence is, which also leads us into discussing the difference between confidence and self-esteem.

Of course, there is a feature, this is an SEO SAS podcast episode after all! Sarah quizzes Jo on her general knowledge. Reckon you can beat her score? Only one way to find out...

About your hosts

Sarah McDowell

Profile picture for Sarah McDowell
I've been in Digital Marketing and Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) for around 10 years, currently working as the SEO Manager at Captivate (part of Global), the world's only growth-orientated podcast host. I am a self-confessed SEO nerd (I find the industry fascinated and love learning how search engines like Google work) and a bit of a podcast addict (with this being the fourth podcast I have hosted). I am also a speaker and trainer. I hope you enjoy this podcast!

Seriously Excited about Optimisations (is this not my online dating profile?). I love everything SEO, especially a good SEO analogy. SEO Manager by day, at the weekends, when I’m not with Sarah in our podcasting and SEO bubble, you’ll probably find me (literally) with my head in the clouds, up a mountain - with my husband Dom (who hopefully ignores the bit about a dating profile). Cat mum, vegan baker and aspiring photographer in what’s left of my spare time ✌🏻
