Who Am I?
As you might have already guessed, my name is Lewis. I’m 26 and I’ve been involved with Internet Marketing for around 7 years.
I started to explore the wide world of SEO when I first started University. Like most University students, I quickly ran out of money and started struggling. I was quite stubborn at the time and decided that I didn’t want to get a job, but I did need money in order to pay my rent, bills and buy food. So, I looked around my halls room and thought what do I have that is readily available to me that I can use to build up some income?
Well, there was my desktop PC and a decent Internet connection. So I started to research how to make money online. Probably not the wisest keyword choice, but it was a start. So I soon discovered the world of Affiliate Marketing. So I got to work, promoting other peoples products in order to receive a commission. My first venture was a disaster and the website looked pretty bad too. Not surprising for a Blogger blog.
Knowing that I would not get anywhere with that I decided to invest a small portion of the money that I had available to me and get started. My second venture was much more successful and I started to earn regular income. Over the summer I had earned enough to cover my rent, bills and food.
I continued this throughout University, but neglected the websites whilst I focused on my studies. I could not commit a whole lot of time to them and had to drop a few of the sites that were not earning a whole lot of money.
Once I had left University I decided to look for a job in an Agency. I felt that there were secrets that I had to learn and that the only place that I could learn these SEO secrets were at an Agency. Turns out there aren’t any secrets per say, but it did give me a great opportunity to learn about Agency life and how Agencies work. After just over a year, I left in order to pursue self-employment and that is where I have been ever since, building a small consistent client base and providing them with actionable results for their business.
