I would love any advice or tips you can give on search engine optimization. I`m not sure if I have all the correct components in place for the major engines to pick up the site.
Thanks in advance for your time,

Here is my opinion for your site.
Strictly from the point of view from a potential prospect (myself included), I think there is a lot missing. When a prospect first hits your site, there is nothing there to indicate you are the person who could help them. It seems as if the `authoritative` look is missing (a combination of content & appropriate layout/graphics).
Who is Tami Gomez and is she qualified to help me -- looking at the site, one could conclude that Tami Gomez probably isn`t the coach for `them` because they don`t have enough information to make an educated decision.
I`m not clear on what you do exactly, on one page, it looks like you`re looking to get booked for doing speaking engagments, and on another, it looks like you do offer coaching services -- so I`m not real clear on what`s going on.
I would replace the video with something more `relevant` to the visitor coming to the site. When I clicked on the video, I expected to hear some type of personal message, instead, there was a slide show with some music.
That space should be used for more important information -- such as "What Could the Visitor Expect to Achieve By Using Your Services (or Speaking Services)".
Here is a site that clearly communicates to the visitor coming to the site:
From the beginning, she tells me "How I Would Benefit from Her Services" with phrases and headlines such as:
"Success On Your Own Terms", "Transform Your Life"
You deserve a personal and professional life of unlimited possibility. Mindful Life Coaching will help you know your life purpose, take action toward your goals, stay focused on your life vision, manage your time, live a balanced life, and achieve the success, inner peace, joy and fulfillment you deserve.
Her site clearly indicates that she is the authority and after reviewing the content on the site, I walk away knowing that she clearly could help me.
Prospects for the type of service you`re offering will want a lot more information than what`s currently there now. You`ll have to educate them about `why they need you` and that you are indeed the person that can help them.
You also have a link to your profile at SUN --- but when I get there, there isn`t much information about you. Also, consider not allowing people to spill off your site to go elsewhere because once they`re at "SUN", they could easily get distracted with all of the wonderful resources and not return to your site.
I noticed you had a newsletter option for them to sign-up "Achieve Greater Success" -- even though the newsletter is free, you technically still must `SELL" them on why they would sign-up to receive it. Talk benefits, benefits, and more benefits.
This is simply my observations -- to many people get the impression that by having a site, they`ll get a ton of business. Truth of the matter is, you must work your butt off to get that site in tip top condition so it`ll convert for you 24-7.
One key purpose of a web site is to provide prospects with information about your products/services in an effort to get them to use you. But, that information must be presented in a way that will motivate the potential client to take action --- this is where many web sites lose focus.
I hope this helps, and this review was totally meant to help you improve your site.
