I’m Éric St-Cyr, the visionary founder behind ProStar SEO. Let me take you on a journey through my transformation into an SEO maestro.
Back in 2012, I ventured into the online brokerage world, pioneering the first-ever website in the Cayman Islands that facilitated securities trading across 37 global stock exchanges. My creation swiftly became a sensation, and by early 2014, my investment firm had emerged as the leading independent fund manager in the Cayman Islands, with millions pouring in weekly. Yet, success often breeds envy.
On March 12, 2014, I found myself apprehended in Miami by the U.S. tax authorities, slapped with three counts of money laundering, a crime I was innocent of. Each charge carried a staggering 20-year prison sentence. After rigorous negotiations and enduring grueling months in one of America’s harshest penitentiaries, I was finally set free on March 18, 2015. If this story intrigues you, feel free to reach out, and I’ll gladly send you a complimentary copy of “À l’ombre du soleil,” a book I penned during my time at Club Fed.
Upon my release, with depleted finances and a tarnished reputation, I embarked on a quest for employment. The only available options were minimum-wage labor positions, and I began toiling away at night, earning a mere $14 an hour. A stark departure from my former life on the Caribbean shores.
During my daytime hours, I lend my expertise to my daughter as she launched her venture. In December 2015, miummium.com was born, offering a platform akin to the Airbnb of home chefs. The concept was simple; select your city, and the website connects you with an array of talented chefs in your vicinity. Given our limited budget, conventional online advertising was out of reach, pushing us to focus on a different strategy: SEO.
Months were spent in fruitless meetings with so-called SEO experts, but none could demystify the intricate workings of SEO. Explain to me clearly, HOW IT WORKS…Frustrated by the lack of clear answers, I resolved to learn the secrets of this domain on my own. Armed with a background in international business and a robust foundation in technology and marketing, I embarked on an educational journey into the world of SEO.
Today, my daughter’s business boasts a roster of 5,000 chefs spread across 71 countries, and her website shines on the front page of Google in countless cities around the world, offering exquisite home chef services.
In the wake of MiumMium’s resounding success, an increasing number of individuals, sought my guidance in elevating their online presence. Recognizing the commercial potential of a transparent and comprehensible solution, I conceived the idea to establish ProStar SEO.
