2009

“Kate has been instrumental in helping me take a complex and rather unwieldy idea for a website and turning into a concise, detailed document ready for quoting. She has proven to be efficient, knowledgeable and good humoured. Considering I had already had one unsuccessful experience with other web developers, working with Kate was a dream. I would not hesitate to recommend Kate to anyone who is trying to take a web idea and make it reality, or alternatively, anyone who wants to update and improve their existing website.” John Titley

Director, CrewWho

“Kate is a dynamic and creative copywriter and SEO specialist. Kate offers a proven depth of experience and expert understanding of digital creative and technical processes, this is highlighted in the professional and friendly manner with which Kate carries out her work, which is first-class every time. It’s a pleasure working with Kate and would I highly recommend her for any future work.” Brent Whittington

Client Services Manager, Bullseye

“Kate’s SEO review and recommendations for how we could make our new media site SEO friendly were excellent and met all my expectations and more. It was an absolute pleasure working with Kate and I can’t recommend her highly enough.” Emma Sturgiss

Public Relations Manager - Marketing Global Public Relations, Tourism Australia

“Kate’s expertise in helping build the Imperial Leather website was invaluable. From copywriting to scope development and technical assistance Kate’s involvement went over and above our expectations and helped us build a website we’re all thrilled with.” Emily Scoble

Senior Account Director, Triad

“Kate has brought me (and Reasontospeak.com) out of our shell – from a little pippy, she has produced a trumpeting conch. She’s good. No – very good!” Paul Griffiths

Managing Director, Reason To Speak

“Kate reworked our existing site to give it a more modern feel and to allow us to maintain the site ourselves, which gives us the flexibility to add new features, like ‘mot du jour’, videos, music, grammar lessons etc. The site looks amazing, but more importantly it delivers. We’re in first or second position for our chosen keywords across Google, Yahoo and Ninemsn. Her great SEO know-how really works, we don’t do any other form of advertising, purely online and we’re inundated with requests.” Hichem Moussa

Head Tutor, VoulezVouloz

“I have had the pleasure of working with Kate twice. The first time was from 1999 to 2003 at OgilvyOne. In 1999 the internet was still a bit wet behind the ears. Kate wasn’t. She was one of the pommy experts imported to show us Aussies a few tricks on how it’s done. The second time was 2008/2009 when she freelanced for me at Atlantis Healthcare, providing us with a scope of works, site map, engaging copy and outstanding SEO expertise. Kate works with fervour and passion. She is highly intelligent, exceptionally knowledgeable and has excellent project management skills. Being extremely creative doesn’t often go hand in hand with pragmatism – Kate manages both with aplomb. She possesses a high level of attention to detail, is flexible and always willing to go that extra mile to get the project delivered. A great thinker and problem solver, she doesn’t skip a beat. Friendly, approachable and superbly quick-witted, she is also a great gal to have around. I’m looking forward to Round Three.” Fiona Seton

Creative Director, Atlantis Healthcare

Kate's knowledge, advice and support is invaluable. Every single time I have followed her advice, things have improved for my business, and so much so that I invested in her full SEO course with the 1:1 option. This course is a must for small businesses that want to succeed - I should have done it much earlier. I cannot recommend Kate or her SEO course enough - thank you so much Kate for everything that you do and offer.read more

I'm currently working through the Degustation Recipe for SEO Success and so far my only regret is not having done it sooner. I can now clearly see the SEO opportunities for my business and I understand the actions that I need to take to get my business to the next level. Kate gets straight to the point and, while she clearly has the technical expertise, she manages to speak in layman terms to us non-SEO experts. The course is easily digestible, with short learnings and actions in each module, making it easy to get through between family and work life. If you do one thing for your business, sign up to one of Kate's courses. I never thought I'd say this, but I'm excited about SEO! Thanks Kate!read more

What a fantastic course - I'd been putting it off for so long - but I knew it would be worth it when I finally took the plunge. And it was. My knowledge has soared and my confidence also. It will be incredible to provide our clients with so much additional value moving forward. Thank you so much Kate. Your SEO course is without a doubt an absolute winner.read more

I just had a one hour degustation chat with Kate. By far the most valuable hour I have ever spent on marketing in my 17 year marketing career (seriously). I was blown away by how much we covered in the hour session, and I have never felt clearer about the path to SEO success for my business. Thanks so much Kate, you really are the expert!"read more

If the thought of your business staying the same makes you feel sick to your stomach - you need to do Kate's course. You owe it to yourself to learn from the very best in SEO. I recently completed Kate Toon's Recipe for SEO Success Course, and it was without doubt, the best thing I've EVER done for my business! After a few short weeks of implementing Kate's teachings, I watched my rankings dramatically improve in Google search results for my chosen keywords, and also obtained a top spot in the local pack and knowledge graphs. Previously, the majority of my new clients came from referrals but they're now coming from Google. Website traffic is also increasing daily, which is a direct result of what Kate teaches you to implement. A non-jargony course that's easy to understand and thoroughly enjoyable to complete, Kate's incredible support and sense of humour is a winning combination for any business. I cannot recommend Kate's courses highly enough! Thanks Kate, you're a bl**dy good egg!read more

I have done many online courses over the years and Kate's SEO course is one of the best ones. She has extensive knowledge about everything SEO and marketing, but the best part is that her courses are very practical and based on her own experience of what works. You can start implementing on day 1 and get quick results. I keep coming back to her videos to increase my knowledge and improve SEO results for myself and my clients. Thanks so much Kate.read more

This is an unbelievably good course. I've followed Kate for a while before decided to take the plunge into the SEO recipe for success course, and I now only wish I had of done this sooner! The course itself is really well structured, there is a lot of amazing content that you get, plus the weekly coaching calls are wickedly good - they really helped me stay focused week to week to ensure I got through and did everything (almost) on time. I can now confidently run the SEO on my sites,, which is going to save me around $4k per annum - considering I paid less than this for the course in total, Im very happy with the return on my investment. Seriously, just go and do this course, you will not regret it. Thanks Kate, your an SEO rockstar!read more

I signed up for Kate Toon's SEO course so that I would feel more empowered when chatting to our web guys about our online presence and strategy, and to improve my own skills so that we could start implementing regular content myself. With each week building on the next, I found Kate's course easy to understand and highly beneficial. Not only did I learn about creating content the 'right' way, I've also learnt how to ensure our site is 'healthy' and has a good, solid foundation. There's loads of useful info and resources so the ability to dip back in and work through each step even after the course has ended is a bonus. Highly recommend. Thanks Kate!read more

I can fully recommend Kate Toon’s Recipe for SEO Success course. I’ve spent loads of time in the past reading articles and speaking to SEO ‘experts’, but apart from picking up a few tips here and there, I still didn’t feel that confident navigating my way around the vast SEO universe – especially the technical side of things. Kate’s course has been the answer to all my problems! It is so thorough, easy to understand and brings together everything in one place – without any nonsense or smoke and mirrors. I was blown away with how much amazing content and resources are included in the course. There’s so much more than I was expecting and I know I'll be revisiting the materials over and over again.read more

Before I did Kate's course "The Recipe for SEO Success", I was offering half-assed SEO services to my web design clients. I sort of knew some of the steps to good SEO but didn't have a process to follow to ensure a consistently high quality outcome. Kate's course taught me a great process to follow, plus how to carry out each step thoroughly and for best results. She really knows her stuff and isn't stingy with sharing her years of experience with her students. I've enjoyed it so much that I somehow ended up registering for her Copywriting Conference because I trust Kate and her expertise so much.read more

Kate Toon is the real deal. I've just completed the Recipe for SEO Success e-course, which is hands down the best course I've ever taken - and I've taken a few! Kate combines easy-to-follow lessons with loads of support, tools and resources. In a few short weeks, I've reduced the load time of my website by more than half, and made it to page 1 of Google for several of my keywords. I've even nabbed 2nd position for one particular phrase, which wasn't even on my radar before the course. Thanks Kate - you rock!read more

Kate Toon's Recipe for SEO Success course offers a detailed (but incredibly easy to understand) insight into the world of SEO. I was a little unsure about making this investment, but considering the amount of information you get (plus lifetime access) it's actually extremely good value for money. I highly recommend the course for both SEO newbies and people who want to extend their skills in this area.read more
