Each month, we are delighted to introduce you to one of the members of the Alkaloid Networks community, a coworking space on the Eastside Atlanta Beltline. This month we visited with Jade Pruett of HelloSEO.
What are you working on right now?
A never ending pile of SEO stuff for HelloSEO and clients.
Who is your ideal audience?
Small businesses and startups
What is a common misconception about your industry?
SEO gets a bad reputation because it’s so mysterious. And there are a lot of businesses out there offering sketchy SEO services that leave people with a bad taste in the their mouths for SEO providers. That’s why I really try to emphasize transparency and education with my clients. I want to provide good service, real results, and not bank on my clients not knowing what I’m talking about.
What is your big picture vision for your business?
I’d really like to become a go-to person in the SEO space and take over the world. But first I just want to gain some momentum and have some fun.
What is your superpower?
I can’t say it’s exclusively a “me” thing because I see a lot of other people at Alkaloid who are this way, but I feel like what sets me apart is my willingness to put in the hours, work hard, and have fun while I’m doing it.
What is your favorite business or productivity tool?
Ahrefs! It’s an SEO tool with all kinds of crazy tools.
Profit First has really rocked by world when it comes to managing the financial side of a business.
I started at Alkaloid as a employee for another business, and I loved it so much, I came back as soon as I could. You can’t beat the character, location, and the amenities.
What is your favorite amenity/perk at Alkaloid? Or maybe 2 or 3?
The podcast studio is so much fun! I also love the endless trail mix and all the fun events!
You were working from Alkaloid during the pandemic, why and/or how are you using the space?
I’ve loved using Alkaloid during the pandemic to get out of the house. Getting some social interactions and having a reason to put on real pants was very helpful after a year of being at home.
What advice would you give someone considering coworking?
Try it out! You can always do a free trial day and see how fun it is!
