I\’ve been slaving in and about the IT industry now for in excess of 20 years. In fact, the week I debuted as a novice programmer was the week of the Lockerbie bombing, which gives somewhat more notion of how long I\’ve been dragging my fetid corpse about the place. In that interlude, I\’ve learnt to employ a large assortment of skills and disciplines, traveled far and wide, been on the normal payroll and a freelance contractor doing software consultancy work. And I am able to state with considerable authority that search engine optimisation is by far and away the best thing I\’ve ever found.
Having converted myself into an affordable SEO company, it has the benefits that it runs around the disgusting IR35 rule that robs contractors by viewing them as \’hidden employees\’ as I have multiple contracts with clients that operate concurrently and I expect over the very long term as I support their web pages and aim to bump them as far up the search engine results pages as I can.
The pleasure for me is that for all of my existence I have always adored creative writing, whether it be fiction in the longer version or short, song lyrics, diaries or blogs. Occasionally a combination of several, and this is what search engine optimisation permits me to do for the majority of my time. Initially when I take on a fresh client I spend a long time studying at their site, seeing how it can be amended to make it more attractive to the search engines by changing the words on the page, in the HTML that creates it and the pictures and then make sure that it is properly indexed with the biggest search engines. After that is complete then I can begin writing about just about any subject I can think of that bears a particular skew to the client\’s site or firm.
It\’s fabulous, and for that reason I want mine to be the most affordable SEO company that I can make it, I\’m not interested in charging massive fees and then having the client run away and employ somebody else once I\’ve completed the early work. I want to work with them for years to come and be a quiet yet vital part of the sustainability for their enterprise.
I used to go after the big money when I was doing software consultancy and got them in a lot of cases, but when the project is cancelled, the staff levels reduced or you discover yourself with the wrong nationality in the wrong location, unemployment eats into those bucks and very soon you\’re back to where you were when you started. I never want to be repeating that again, it\’s too hard and debilitating to be always fire-fighting.
I can also be an affordable SEO company as my outgoings are very small. I work at home so there is no problem with the commute to the office, I can choose my own working period. For example, I am writing this on a Saturday after lunch simply because I just fancy doing it and I missed some time during the last week when the power was off as the guys installing my new kitchen needed to tinker with some plugs.
I really can\’t advocate it enough. If someone enjoys the creative process, can take the trick involved in managing stacks of pieces on the same theme without getting fed up, I suggest you learn search engine optimisation and get going. If you do not want to set your own business up, you can find an affordable SEO company somewhere nearby I\’m certain and if, like me, you were ever into software consultancy, then you will never look back.
