Hey! I’m Meg Casebolt (she/her), host of Social Slowdown.
As the founder of Love At First Search, an SEO agency for brilliant & ambitious online entrepreneurs, I’ve talked to hundreds of business owners want to minimize their reliance on social media. So many of my conversations start with,
“I’m not sure what to do next, but I’m so tired of social media. I wish I could escape the grind, but I’m too scared to shut it down!”
Some of those folks are a good fit for SEO, and I’m happy to help them … but it’s not a fit for everyone. So I found myself regular sending referrals to experts using different marketing strategies.
And I recognized that plenty of entrepreneurs could benefit from this info, but don’t have access to my rolodex of amazing strategists. So I’m taking those conversations public in the Social Slowdown podcast.
I’ll also bring experience from running my own marketing business, where I’ve honed my chops & paid my dues by serving …
