Cassandra Dawson: SEO Consultant in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

We are an SEO company with strong SEO strategy, technical, on page optimization and marketing integration skills. We are friendly, approachable, methodical and precise. We try very hard to make our clients happy and to deliver a good product each and every time.

Tell us about yourself?

I first started out tinkering around in computers as a hobby. I then got into the social side of things and made some social communities before social media existed. After that I made many websites as a hobby, then professionally. I naturally transitioned to security, affiliate marketing, email marketing then SEO.

If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?

Know the things that I procrastinate over, set rewards for completing those tasks and have supports in place.

What problem does your business solve?

I make websites pretty, easy to use, increase visits and conversions.

What is the inspiration behind your business?

I created SEO Candyland because I believe that quality, results-driven SEO should be accessable to everyone. So many agencies cut corners and fail to deliver results. It’s important for me to provide value to all of my clients.

What is your magic sauce?

I have first hand experience managing a search engine. I am also creating a search engine right now. My SEO methods work on any site. There is no keyword I can not secure. I have nearly 25 years of digital experience and rise to the challenge each time.

What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?

I want to build SEO software that has a built in website theme, does SEO, website & security health checks, walks the user through each stage of SEO and audits their work.

What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?

I was cleaning up, organizing and monetizing a website with milions of webpages with a huge amount of user generated content being uploaded every day. I developed a solid website structure, user generated content criteria and came up with innovative ways for the website to make money. Many technical errors were resolved as well as content quality and duplication issues.

How do people get involved/buy into your vision?

We are interested in working with peopel who are serious about getting results. Please email us at [email protected]
