Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.
 
Maika Endo

How I became a tech nerd by accident…

I struggled with websites when I started my spa business 11 years ago. I spent so much money and energy communicating with web designers, the process was always stressful.

One day during my holiday, I tried to update my Wordpress site and it crashed! Given the timeframe, I had no other choice than to figure out how to put a new one up by myself. With some research, I launched a new-and improved one within a week.

I found this experience so empowering, I became obsessed with it and experimented with all the website builders on the market.

Today, I do believe that when you are a small business owner, it makes more sense to do it yourself (including the content writing), so that everything aligns with your vision, and embodies your personality in an authentic way.

Having this kind of control over your business, being able to edit, and make changes to your website anytime you want without depending on someone else, gives peace of mind, and that is priceless!

I’m not an expert in web design, but I did build this website (if I can do it, so can you!), and also designed websites for other businesses. Very quickly, I realized that I enjoyed creating tutorials more than building websites for others so I pivoted, and decided to teach that instead.

Search Engine Optimization

You can google “spas+Beijing” and my spa business Kocoon Spa will rank in the first 5 results, against more than 35,000,000 results. Try “Facial+Beijing” and we are the first suggestion among 62 000 000 results! Finally, for “waxing+Beijing” we are first among 700 000 results.

I didn’t pay for it, and it’s not rocket science, I applied some simple strategies which I will share with you. Once you know the basics, it’s easy!

 
“I had a great learning and sharing time at Maika’s SEO class. Maika is truly an excellent teacher! What I appreciated the most about Maika’s SEO training was not only that she delivered the class content with very clear outlines, but also she interpreted the complicated IT language into the one that her students could comprehend right away.
