"Those who make the world a better place
are given a better place in the world."
Hey there, I'm Bill Widmer. I've been called many things...
Fiance, friend, son, psychologist, gamer, entrepreneur, speaker, and so much more.
Professionally, I'm obsessed with content and Google. In that regard, I've accomplished some great things:
- Built a website called The Wandering RV (with my fiance, Kayla!) that sees over 4,000 daily visits from Google.
- Wrote an in-depth guide to eCommerce SEO that ranks #3 for highly competitive keywords.
- Been interviewed on over a dozen podcasts, including Entrepreneurs on Fire with JLD! Click here to listen to my episode.
My biggest achievements, however, are the
clients friends I've worked with or written for.
There are many more, but I'm sure you'll recognize at least a few. 🙂

More About Bill
Still reading, eh?
Here's my (professional) story...
I cut my teeth on the sales world of Cutco, selling knives door to door. At the time, I had lip piercings and was incredibly awkward. Not a good combo.
However, I did manage to sell over $10,000 of knives and earn myself a letter of recommendation from the CEO. Score!
My first business didn't happen until 2014, when my professor Frank encouraged me to sell promotional products. (You know, pens and beer mugs with company names on them.)
I had a whopping two customers... Frank and my mom. Whomp whomp.
However, the entrepreneur bug bit me, and I couldn't give up there. Maybe something else would be better suited for me? All I knew is that I hated working "typical" jobs for other people.
So, I dabbled in eCommerce.
Four online stores later (including an Etsy store re-selling goods from a local flea market - see below), I still wasn't making the money I dreamed of. I needed more.
I tried something new: Freelance writing.
My first client paid me a whopping $5 an article for articles that took me 4-5 hours to write. Jackpot.
Realizing that people would actually pay me for my words, I began to refine them. I devoured books like On Writing by Ann Handley and Content, Inc. by the legendary content marketer Joe Pulizzi.
I read all the blogs on writing I could find. Eventually, I was charging $0.10 per word, and I could make $50 an hour.
But that's where things stagnated.
Getting clients to pay me more got harder and harder. I realized people simply don't want to pay more for "content". I'd write an article, hand it off, and nothing would happen with it.
There was no ROI.
So Kayla and I did the next obvious step - we learned how to make sure our articles actually made people money. If they made money, they could pay us more money. Win-win!
But it wasn't enough to learn about it. We needed results.
At the time, we were living in an RV and traveling the east coast. We happened to have a site called The Wandering RV to capture our travels and keep friends and family up to date.
Thus, the guinea pig was born.
After about 6 months of putting everything we learned to the test, we'd reached over 1,000 daily visitors from Google. Now, 6 more months later, we've quadrupled that to 4,000 daily visitors.
And that's where we're at. Now you know my (professional) story.
None of it would have been possible without my incredible fiance and business partner, Kayla Blydenburgh (soon to be Widmer! Aaaah!).
Hey, there! My name is Kayla, and I joined Team Widmer in 2015 as a content creator and Bill’s right-hand gal. Since then, I’ve grown to consider myself the organizer of things here with Team Widmer.
So how the heck did I get here?
From 9-5 to life-loving entrepreneur
In early 2016 I left my job as a pre-k teacher to work with Bill on his content marketing business. I had to learn a lot of new things, like how to manage my own schedule, how to run client calls, and how to write articles that rank!
It was scary at first, but I adapted fast.
Bill taught me everything he knew about running a business and SEO. Eventually, I started teaching our clients, and even had a few clients of my own!
Now, I mostly work on our affiliate sites and my food blog, Eat With Kayla. (If you like to eat delicious food, go check it out!)
I also work closely with our blog coaching clients to help them start, run, and scale their own blogs, so they can quite their 9-5 and live the life they love! So if you sign up for our coaching, you'll meet me 🙂
