He also stated the difference between Content writing and Copywriting - relevant tools in optimizing search engines. Nevertheless, his talk focused on Content writing for Search Engine Optimization about on-page optimization.
Here are a few points that Karl emphasized during his talk:
Good contents on a website are the paths to gaining more traffic.
SEO is a complex and tedious job since it can take an ample amount of your time. Hence, consistency is the key.

He ended the talk by stating that SEO is the number one most in-demand skill on Linkedin and 4th on Upwork based on the 2022 survey.
The 2nd November Webinar: 𝗚𝗲𝘁 𝗭𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗲𝗱 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗭𝗮𝗽𝗶𝗲𝗿! 𝗶𝗻 𝗚𝗼𝗼𝗴𝗹𝗲 with Jayne Caranto
The topic of our second week's webinar with Jayne Caranto is infrastructure. Jayne introduced the definition of workflow and automation before introducing Zapier.
She then discussed the relevance and usage of Zapier. Zapier is a tool she began exploring and later used because it had a significant impact on making her workflow lighter. It is a workflow automation technology that enables the creation of automated workflows that transfer data between apps.
Jayne demonstrated how to use Zapier by showing examples performed on the platform among the audience. She emphasized the importance of investing time and money in learning new tools like Zapier. However, these tools are worthwhile if you have grit and a desire to improve.
The 3rd November Webinar: 𝗘𝘅𝗰𝗲𝗹𝗹𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲: 𝗔 𝗖𝗼𝗻𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗻𝘁 𝗣𝘂𝗿𝘀𝘂𝗶𝘁 𝗼𝗳 𝗧𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝟭% with Hannah Caraig
Excellence is the highlight of the talk of the third speaker for the M.I.L.E Program, Hannah Caraig. Hannah began by emphasizing the pivotal role of mindset in success. She highlighted that people with the right mindset are more likely to achieve their goals.
Hanah preceded by defining excellence in a worldly and heavenly manner. She delivered these points with emphasis:
Excellence is the product of the right motive beyond money.
Excellence is an attitude generated by a spirit.
Excellence is striving for the best but being able to stay in peace with less than perfect.
She emphasized that while excellence is valuable, it is not a gift. We can excel, but we are not born with it. Hannah also discussed the factors that prevent people from reaching their full potential. She ended the talk by further giving insights about excellence in answering her audience's questions.
The 4th November Webinar: 𝟲-𝗙𝗶𝗴𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝗘𝗮𝗿𝗻𝗲𝗿 𝗻𝗮 𝗔𝗸𝗼; 𝗡𝗼𝘄 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁? 𝗕𝘂𝗱𝗴𝗲𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 (𝗙𝘂𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲!) with Emeljune Corpuz
Emeljune concluded the November M.I.L.E Program by discussing Budgeting. Unlike other webinars, this one was a talk show-like webinar, with audiences allowed to ask questions and the speakers responding. Here are some of the points he emphasized during his talk:
You don't make six figures in a single night. To achieve your goals, you must work hard, be patient, and have faith in the process. HARD WORK is the key to a six-figure income.
Salary, goals, expenses, and an emergency fund is a must to start Budgeting.
Emeljune revealed his budgeting formula: Salary - Savings - Emergency Fund = Expenses. He stressed that to achieve your goal while on a budget, you must maximize your expenses.
You may also consider investment and insurance when you have excess money on your expenses.
Prioritize your needs over wants. Buying personal wants is okay as long as it is in moderation.
With grit and passion for improvement, the M.I.L.E Program Webinar Series can be a start in making a Ripple effect on the community. Through this, Ripple VAs can always assist in opening opportunities among the community through continuous learning and progress.
