What a guest we have on the show this week. Joining me is the awesome Diana Richardson who is the social media, and community manager at SEMrush.

She loves wine, she’s a public speaker, she’s a thyroid cancer survivor, and she is into SEO, SEM, digital marketing, and you’ll more often than not find her being super helpful and helping curate the great #SEMRushChat over on Twitter.


We have a brilliant conversation about her extensive experience in the industry, the hundreds of people she named as inspirations to her, what her role involves now with SEMrush, what it’s like managing such a large community during a pandemic – and to top it all off – she takes over the show and basically interviews herself too!
