Need to hire help, know what I need but not what it's called or where to look.

I run a couple of blogs on how to learn different languages. I know languages, not SEO or site design or optimization or really anything else. I need help, my sites look (to me) like crap, people have told me I could easily triple my traffic with some basic optimization (I don't really know what that is). I know I need help, and I'm willing to pay for it (I've got a couple thousand dollars I could throw at this).

I don't even know exactly what the job titles are let alone where to find these people. I need:
  • help adjusting the structure (?) of the site such that it's as SEO-friendly as possible
  • help adjusting the structure of the site so it's as easy to navigate and visitor-friendly as possible
  • help working out monetization, what I mean is I have no idea how to monetize my site for the greatest profit and I need help (I have my own product, a book I wrote, along with some affiliate products I promote and amazon ads in the sidebar). what should I promote and how? where's the best place to put the ads? I don't think I'm making anywhere near what I could with the traffic I currently have, let alone what I could with the traffic I'd get once the site is properly optimized (?) and I'm promoting the most profitable products in the best way
  • design...help? I think the site is kind of ugly, the logo's terrible (I made it), and I'm still having problems with Divi and am tired of continually going to their support forums to get things fixed. I just want it to look nice and be easy to navigate
  • social media and off-site SEO. I have no clue but I know I'm not doing anywhere near what I should. Help.

Do I want some sort of "optimization" expert? What about help with monetizing my blog? Google has been absolutely useless trying to find people, via googling "blog monetization consultant" I got precisely one relevant result out of ten (the other nine were articles on how to optimize your blog - I don't want to learn how, I want to hire someone who already knows how).

As best I can tell this is allowed even though it's my first post. If it helps this is my real name, that's my real face, I'm logging in via my Google account. I just need to be pointed in the right direction and told what to look for and how to sort through people to find the best one for my budget. Thank you in advance for any help.

    There are two options, either you can hire
    Web designer to help design logo and redesign website and different person who is an SEO expert to make the site SEO friendly and do SEO of the website.
    Another better option is to hire a company who provides both web design and SEO services. They will manage your site effectively and results could be achieved in less time, as both can communicate with each other directly.

      And what kind of company would that be? Web development? I'd just like to get some idea of who/what I'm searching for and then how to sort through them (where can I find trustworthy reviews?).

      Thank you, by the way. I know this is a stupidly simple newbie type of question but I genuinely need help with this, I just don't know what I'm doing.

    "I know I need help, and I'm willing to pay for it (I've got a couple thousand dollars I could throw at this)."

    Don't know if I would advertise that fact. The PM's haven't started streaming in, yet???

    Did you check the WF classifieds? Good place to start since you are already, here!

      I actually haven't received any PMs, just the two replies you see in this thread, neither of which is offering services. This forum is kinda dead from how I remember it six or seven years ago. Bit disappointed.

        I hear that a lot, but that was before I arrived.

        Cheers.

    A bunch of different coaches/consultants Andrew.

    Your needs range from:

    - web developer
    - SEO consultant
    - internet marketing or blogging coach.

    Tough to narrow it down but you're looking to hire a team based on these needs.
